Beaker Browser

Start:

Contributing to the Beaker Browser peer-to-peer browser project.

A peer-to-peer browser for Web hackers.

I followed the instructions on the docs.beakerbrowser.com subsite which explain how to get started.

Beaker Browser is delivered as a fork of Chromium and is wrapped inside an Electron app. Much like Patchwork is on Scuttlebutt.

Getting started was straightforward.

  1. Download and install the application.
  2. Start the application and Beaker Browser will have created a new profile (Hyperdrive) for you.
  3. Start editing your profile page:
    1. Changed the title and the description
    2. Added a picture as thumb.png
    3. Copied over HTML, JS and CSS from my existing homepage.

Next steps include:

  1. ❎ Learn about Web Components
  2. ❎ Learn more about Hyperdrive and DAT protocol
  3. ❎ Help test out new Beaker Browser releases.
