CacheP2P - "More users = More capacity"

  •    Javascript

CacheP2P is a highly distributed cache platform based on WebTorrent and runs only in the browser. It is a javascript library that once included in a website, makes every new user a mirror of the specific URL he has opened and allows it to serve it to all the other users that also are accessing the same website, so the website's server doesn't have to.

webtorrent - ⚡️ Streaming torrent client for the web

  •    Javascript

WebTorrent is a streaming torrent client for node.js and the browser. YEP, THAT'S RIGHT. THE BROWSER. It's written completely in JavaScript – the language of the web – so the same code works in both runtimes. In node.js, this module is a simple torrent client, using TCP and UDP to talk to other torrent clients.

  •    Javascript

webtorrent-hybrid - WebTorrent (with WebRTC support in Node.js)

  •    Javascript

In node.js, the webtorrent package only connects to normal TCP/UDP peers, not WebRTC peers. If you want to connect to all types of peers, including WebRTC peers, from node.js, you need to use this package (webtorrent-hybrid). Previous versions (0.x) of this package used wrtc, a WebRTC implementation via native extensions, the current one is based on electron-webrtc (which in turn uses electron-prebuilt) for better compatibility. It creates a hidden Electron process (which is based on Chromium, so WebRTC support is great!) and communicates with that process to enable WebRTC in Node.js. This adds a lot of overhead, so we are looking forward to using a pure JavaScript implementation, like perhaps Node-RTCPeerConnection when it's ready.
