Hi how to start with Safe Network and Maidsafe is there a download link or something
For now you’ll have to be patient. We’ll probably have a testnet 1 running in a couple of weeks.
If you can’t wait then you can try setting up the example testnet.
Until then feel free to contribute to the forum with your ideas or even invest in the idea of SAFE and invest by purchasing some MaidSafecoins - if the projects proves successful this could perhaps put even Bitcoin to shame interms of ROI.
As a builder I’m making some assumptions, could anyone tell me if I’m on the right track?
What code should an app be written in?
Serving dynamic content instead of static files
Need HElp regarding dynaimic Website in Maidsafe
It would be good for someone to pull together all the bits of discussion (including some on reddit I think) about how websites and current website apps can be built on SAFE. I’m pretty sure @benjaminbollen was active in some of these.
Your assumptions are good. For sure you’ll have to write client side code. This code can live on an immutable public drive you control and on the client machine your code can have access to a private filesystem owned by the user. If you want your program to connect deeper into the core code, the available API is still under debate, so feel free to make your requests. For running your code on top of drive you are free to use angular or a stand-alone build.
Hope this helps
So I asked this question just today.
It looks like the Maidsafe network is able to serve static files, and that problem has already been solved. However, I do not see any explanation about how to serve dynamic content over the Maidsafe network. Just checking in on this thread, two months on, there is a way to do this?
Yes this is possible, but depending on who owns the data your application works with, the architecture might be a bit different than usual. The easiest way to think about it is that you are running a desktop application, not connected to a server. Instead you have a hard disk that gives you access to your binaries, but equally to private data of your user, and private data of the people s/he has shared with.
So instead of all this user data being stored on a central server for the application, it will be there on the client computer of your end-user.
At this point you should be able to build any dynamic content you want.
It’s a big change for a privacy perspective; but in your code the change isn’t big at all. Instead of getting data from a server you have to set up. Now you simply read it from a local disk.
Hope this helps
