At FISSION, we’re building a Heroku add-on that makes it easy to integrate InterPlanetary File System (IPFS) into apps you host there.

Heroku doesn't have a permanent file system, so anyone hosting there already has to figure out how / where to store files, so we think it's a good place to start.

We're looking for alpha testers to try out our add-on. The types of people we're looking for fall roughly into three categories:

  1. You are a maintainer / contributor for an existing open source app and are interested in adding IPFS support for it (and getting it running on Heroku if it doesn't already)
  2. You are a developer looking to experiment with IPFS and build a small open source test app on Heroku.
  3. You are less technical/not a developer but can follow instructions on copy/pasting a basic open source app and like trying out new things

If you haven’t used Deploy to Heroku before, you can read more about on our blog.
