A quick message: We would like to sincerely THANK YOU because we get a lot of feedback and new suscribers to our weekly newsletter. So, welcome to the new ones and thank you all for following our wild adventure!
Antoine and Guilhem implemented a basic Unix domain socket system that will be used for gomobile-ipfs shell access (the node will serve its API over UDS) and for the arbitrary peer dialing feature.
Guilhem also fixed gomobile-ipfs shell on the iOS simulator, where the absolute path was too long to use a shell over UDS, so we had to fall back on TCP. The thing is, a socket path length is limited to 108 chars and the temporary directory absolute path on the iOS simulator looks like this:
This week, our front team was busy working on the first build of the app:
- Godefroy fixed Berty’s Android and iOS build targets #whoopwhoop
- Clément finished implementing the main screens!
- Norman is porting the CI to buildkite. He still needs to write the Linux setup scripts
We hope to show it to you soon! 💪

We’ll contact the people you recommended! We’ll keep you informed.
