Current Work



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:


First build

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! 💪



In our previous newsletter, we mentioned that we were looking for people who could contribute to our audit of Berty. We really thank you for your replies 🧡.

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