This is a list of P2P/Distributed web tools that I am using. If you stumble on this, please suggest more to the twitter username @migheille… and if you haven’t yet, give these tools a spin. The more users, the merrier.
PeerPad is a realtime P2P collaborative editing tool. Check the website for all the juicy technical details. Think Etherpad but with p2p.
For my test, I did the following:
- Created a new pad
- Had my phone and laptop on the same home network.
- Shared the link with myself and opened it on phone and laptop.
- In the browser on my laptop, I put myself in offline mode.
PeerPad kept working.
Simple, but magical ;p
It is still in Alpha mode (that is before beta ;p). So, please don’t use it for anything serious yet.
