Scuttlebutt Apps

Hermies with a firehose

Your scuttlebutt is the data you carry with you - imagine a little slice of a parallel universe in your pocket. This data is yours and you can interact with it however you like.

These apps are different kinds of magic glasses to help you interact with this reality. Try different glasses on, change them when you're bored, make some new ones that fit you better ... your scuttleverse doesn't mind - it's just data.

Come explore with us! If you are new, you might like to start with Patchwork!

This is a proof of concept for a decentralized file system for Secure Scuttlebutt.

With SSB Drive you can create as many file systems ("drives") as you like, share and organize files with your friends without requiring a central repository or server. When you work on your files while offline, the SSB Drive file system will merge automatically with the rest of the world once you rejoin the grid. Name conflicts are handled with "Observed Removed Sets" (OR-Sets) from CRDT.

Not Activily Maintained

Infinite Game is a tool to help you grow connections with new friends, and to help invite the future you want to see into the world. It lets you look back and reflect on the exciting things you and your friends have done, and be inspired and excited for the future.

Right now it looks like a calendar, some gatherings tools (private or public events), and a tool called scry to help invoke and settle gatherings (simliar to doodle).
