Tutorial: Setting up an IPFS peer, part III

Welcome to the next installment of our ongoing Tutorial Series on “Setting up an IPFS Peer”! This time around, we’re going to piece together some of the IPFS repository (repo) configuration options to help us customize our IPFS peer node. While the IPFS devs have come up with a smart set of default options, certain configurations will be more useful in certain contexts, so it’s important to figure out what will work best for your particular application. Do if you haven’t done so already, take a quick spin through the first post in our series to ensure you have a working understanding of IPFS peer nodes. For today’s tutorial, you won’t need a cloud-based peer, but you are welcome to use that one to experiment with.
