This is a scuttlebutt plugin which adds encrypted hyper/ DAT blob support. This work was funded by #ahau, and most of the internals were built by Magma Collective (Dan Hassan's crew).
It manages the storage, as well as spinning up an http server for serving blobs. Check out the readme for more on behaviour.
Oh, and this handles streaming large files. We've got it working with @Feross's
render-media (which is used in webtorrent-desktop). Upside is streaming p2p videos with seeking (if they're mp4/ compatible)
This module is now entering beta, and will have a major release once we've stress tested it in ahau
