How to read

From the project directory:

  1. To list all files, run node bin/print-files. This will be very slow the first time.
  2. Use bin/get-file to download a file. For example, node bin/get-file 'Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen.epub'. The file will appear in the files directory.

How to write

  1. According to the [burn-stream-writer](https://github.com/paulkernfeld/burn-stream-writer docs), set up Bitcoin and make a client-config.json file.
  2. Write your identity to the Bitcoin blockchain with bin/write-identity.
  3. Add some files using bin/append.
  4. Run bin/serve to share your local files with the world.
