What we own

The IPFS GUI & Tools team builds and maintains gui products for both developers and non-developers. IPFS Desktop, WebUI, and IPFS Companion are key applications in the IPFS ecosystem, serving as “front doors” to IPFS (alongside browsers and gateways). These products are a primary way for newcomers to start using IPFS directly. The team is not limited to GUIs, as the team also owns some tools, including web tools, and the compliance checker. Note, this team is not making protocol changes, but uses the protocols, usually in JS.

In late 2022, our team was tapped to develop the initial MVP release of Starmap.
