At Textile, we’ve been working hard to make building fast, high-quality IPFS apps easy for developers. One solution we’ve generated is Textile Cafes — trust-less, server-based Textile/IPFS peers that are capable of doing additional work for apps to make them run faster and smoother. The work done by Cafes ranges from simple IPFS pinning services, to providing gateways that do ‘on-the-fly’ decryption, to hosting secure message ‘inboxes’ for peers/users. All and all, we’ve found them super useful to build apps like Textile Photos and Notes quickly and easily.
