This tutorial covers setting up your development environment, getting familiar with some libp2p basics, and implementing a super simple node that can send and receive “ping” messages.
This is the first in a series of tutorials on working with libp2p’s Go implementation, go-libp2p.
We’ll cover installing Go, setting up a new Go module, starting libp2p nodes, and sending ping messages between them.
Check out the tutorial of the Rust libp2p implementation.
We will walk you through setting up a fully functional libp2p node with some basic functionality, and finally we’ll send ping messages back and forth between two peers.
