I posted this in another section first, before deciding that this would be a more appropriate place.

I've been working on my own from-the-ground-up implementation of the piratebox on the Pi. It's reached the point where it works now, and I'm just refining the configuration scripts to make it into an image that can be just copied to SD card and used.

It uses IPFS as the storage engine - that means no awful Droopyness, just simple and reliable file insert ability. It also means that it's half-way to being mesh capable already. I'm not done with that quite yet, but already I seem to be further along the path than the official piratebox, as I started from the foundation of IPFS.

It's not quite ready to share yet, but once it's done, would anyone like to give it a try?
Anyone

I didn't get any feedback on the image posted last time (In the other thread - just noticed I missed it here.) I'll prepare another soon, slightly more refined.

There.
[ipfs.io]
Just extract, dd onto a 64GB MicroSD card, and insert into your Pi - tested on 3B and Zero W. default ssh is pi/piratebox.

Sounds really cool. Will give it a shot

I'm still making some refinements. Also, realized there's a small but crucial flaw in that version, so I'm working on a newer one now. You can still use it for testing, but I've un-pinned it from my IPFS node so it'll quickly go unavailable.
