Laravel2IPFS Project Sponsorship

Grant #61966

Submitted by Baran Bayden on January 24, 2022

Request Details
Laravel2IPFS is a plug-in that enables applications developed with Laravel infrastructure to be backed up to IPFS. There is also a feature that will allow you to quickly restore from your backups in case of any disaster.

I will develop a plugin for the project that will initially back up the database, design files and media files for the Laravel framework. For this plugin, I will create new IPFS pinning service. After developing the backup module, I will develop the one-click install module from the backup to a fresh Laravel installation. After that, I'm thinking of developing a base module on PHP. Thanks to this module, me and other developers will be able to integrate the module into any framework they want.

I am applying for a grant for the costs to build the infrastructure necessary for the IPFS pinning service.
