Changelog

The major change in this release is the integration of a full IPFS node: Capyloon now bundles a forked version of Iroh! This allows Capyloon to verify locally the integrity of ipfs:// and ipns:// resources loaded by the browser. To achieve this, the Gecko native protocol handler has been updated to retrieve content from the local node over a Unix Domain Socket. The node itself races block fetches from the p2p swarm with raw CID fetches from a http gateway for optimal performance.

Other notable changes in this release include:

In addition to testing on devices with these packages, you can also run Capyloon on Mac and Linux by following these steps.

Changelog

This release introduces 2 building blocks of user self sovereignty: decentralized IDs (DIDs, in our case using static keys) and User Controlled Authorization Networks ( UCANs).

Capyloon users can locally create DIDs and use them to grant capabilities to 3rd party web sites through UCAN tokens, allowing selective access to device resources.

You can experiment with the "Places" demo app: when requesting access, you can control which capability to grant (in this case accessing a subset of the local virtual filesystem), and for how long this access is valid. The site is then responsible for presenting this UCAN token when using the VFS api, and display your browsing history (which is not accessible to "regular" web pages of course).

Further work will improve user management of the UCAN tokens, visiting topics such as:
