Why? 🙋

Currently, the internet as it stands is monopolized primarily towards central authorities, and relies heavily on outdated infrastructure such as telecom towers, routing systems, switches, etc. It is about time for an upgrade.

What? 😕

This repo is for an SDK and library for building decentralized web and distributed computing projects. Currently, we are trying to make a pipeline for a P2P Data transfer and syndication protocol. Currently, the main distribution method for this software is through NPM, and we have developed extensions, plugins, and capability for multiple other platforms as well.

Features 📋

Currently this can be utilized to:

  • Build an offline centered network
  • Setup your own blockchain infrastructure
  • Setup services and micro-applications running on parallel processing instances
  • Create a cryptocurrency sidechain utilizing Lotion or Tendermint consensus protocols


The NPM library is a collection of the following repos made for the purpose of building decentralized web projects:

lotion | bitcoin-peg | clusterpost | gridbee-framework | Reinvent-the-Internet

Also special thanks to:

The Lonero Dev Team

  • May need some updates in Seed Migration for some of the org repos

This NPM library/package is being mantained by the folks here

This project was created in order to support a new internet. One that is more open, free, and censorship-resistant in comparison to the old internet. An internet that eventually wouldn’t need to rely on telecom towers, an outdated grid, or all these other “old school” forms of tech. We believe P2P compatibility is an important part of the future of the net. Grid Computing also plays a role in having a better means of transferring information in a speedy, more cost-efficient and reliable manner.



Please keep in mind this is a development kit, so mining isn’t supported for this version. The droplet dev kit will not have a full running Lonero node.

Creating an App using the Control Panel

Click the Deploy to DigitalOcean button to create a Droplet based on this 1-Click App. If you aren’t logged in, this link will prompt you to log in with your DigitalOcean account.

Creating an App using the API

In addition to creating a Droplet from the Decentralized Internet 1-Click App using the control panel, you can also use the DigitalOcean API. As an example, to create a 4GB Decentralized Internet Droplet in the SFO2 region, you can use the following curl command. You need to either save your API access token) to an environment variable or substitute it in the command below.

curl -X POST -H 'Content-Type: application/json' \
         -H 'Authorization: Bearer '$TOKEN'' -d \
        '{"name":"choose_a_name","region":"sfo2","size":"s-2vcpu-4gb","image": "starkdrones-decentralizedint-18-04"}' \

Getting Started After Deploying Decentralized Internet

In regards to getting started, click on the installation guide.

Use sudo nano to edit database files and ports before running.

All the main files come pre-installed minus the haxe dev dependencies

Make sure your are in the node_modules/decentralized-internet directory before going to addons
