Central repository for work on libp2p

dependency status

This repository is the central place for Rust development of the libp2p spec.

Warning: While we are trying our best to be compatible with other libp2p implementations, we cannot guarantee that this is the case considering the lack of a precise libp2p specifications.


How to use the library?

Where to ask questions?

  • In the Rust section of https://discuss.libp2p.io.
  • In the #libp2p IRC channel on freenode.
  • By opening an issue in this repository.

Repository Structure

The main components of this repository are structured as follows:

  • core/: The implementation of libp2p-core with its Network, Transport and StreamMuxer API on which almost all other crates depend.

  • transports/: Implementations of transport protocols (e.g. TCP) and protocol upgrades (e.g. for authenticated encryption, compression, ...) based on the libp2p-core Transport API .

  • muxers/: Implementations of the StreamMuxer interface of libp2p-core, e.g. (sub)stream multiplexing protocols on top of (typically TCP) connections. Multiplexing protocols are (mandatory) Transport upgrades.

  • swarm/: The implementation of libp2p-swarm building on libp2p-core with the central interfaces NetworkBehaviour and ProtocolsHandler used to implement application protocols (see protocols/).

  • protocols/: Implementations of application protocols based on the libp2p-swarm APIs.

  • misc/: Utility libraries.

  • examples/: Worked examples of built-in application protocols (see protocols/) with common Transport configurations.
