  -w,         --wrap-with-directory bool   - Wrap files with a directory object.
  -H,         --hidden              bool   - Include files that are hidden. Only takes effect on recursive add.
  -s,         --chunker             string - Chunking algorithm to use.
  --pin                             bool   - Pin this object when adding. Default: true.
  --raw-leaves                      bool   - Use raw blocks for leaf nodes. (experimental).
  --nocopy                          bool   - Add the file using filestore. (experimental).
  --fscache                         bool   - Check the filestore for pre-existing blocks. (experimental).

DESCRIPTION

  Adds contents of <path> to ipfs. Use -r to add directories.
  Note that directories are added recursively, to form the ipfs
  MerkleDAG.

  The wrap option, '-w', wraps the file (or files, if using the
  recursive option) in a directory. This directory contains only
  the files which have been added, and means that the file retains
  its filename. For example:

    > ipfs add example.jpg
    added QmbFMke1KXqnYyBBWxB74N4c5SBnJMVAiMNRcGu6x1AwQH example.jpg
    > ipfs add example.jpg -w
    added QmbFMke1KXqnYyBBWxB74N4c5SBnJMVAiMNRcGu6x1AwQH example.jpg
    added QmaG4FuMqEBnQNn3C8XJ5bpW8kLs7zq2ZXgHptJHbKDDVx

  You can now refer to the added file in a gateway, like so:

    /ipfs/QmaG4FuMqEBnQNn3C8XJ5bpW8kLs7zq2ZXgHptJHbKDDVx/example.jpg

  --enable-mplex-experiment      bool   - Add the experimental 'go-multiplex' stream muxer to libp2p on construction. Default: true.

DESCRIPTION

  The daemon will start listening on ports on the network, which are
  documented in (and can be modified through) 'ipfs config Addresses'.
  For example, to change the 'Gateway' port:

      ipfs config Addresses.Gateway /ip4/127.0.0.1/tcp/8082

  The API address can be changed the same way:

     ipfs config Addresses.API /ip4/127.0.0.1/tcp/5002

  Make sure to restart the daemon after changing addresses.

  By default, the gateway is only accessible locally. To expose it to
  other computers in the network, use 0.0.0.0 as the ip address:

     ipfs config Addresses.Gateway /ip4/0.0.0.0/tcp/8080

  Be careful if you expose the API. It is a security risk, as anyone could
  control your node remotely. If you need to control the node remotely,
  make sure to protect the port as you would other services or database
  (firewall, authenticated proxy, etc).

  HTTP Headers

  ipfs supports passing arbitrary headers to the API and Gateway. You can
  do this by setting headers on the API.HTTPHeaders and Gateway.HTTPHeaders
  keys:

  	ipfs config --json API.HTTPHeaders.X-Special-Header '["so special :)"]'
  	ipfs config --json Gateway.HTTPHeaders.X-Special-Header '["so special :)"]'

  Note that the value of the keys is an _array_ of strings. This is because
  headers can have more than one value, and it is convenient to pass through
  to other libraries.

  CORS Headers (for API)

  You can setup CORS headers the same way:

  	ipfs config --json API.HTTPHeaders.Access-Control-Allow-Origin '["example.com"]'
  	ipfs config --json API.HTTPHeaders.Access-Control-Allow-Methods '["PUT", "GET", "POST"]'
  	ipfs config --json API.HTTPHeaders.Access-Control-Allow-Credentials '["true"]'

  Shutdown

  To shutdown the daemon, send a SIGINT signal to it (e.g. by pressing 'Ctrl-C')
  or send a SIGTERM signal to it (e.g. with 'kill'). It may take a while for the
  daemon to shutdown gracefully, but it can be killed forcibly by sending a
  second signal.

  IPFS_PATH environment variable

  ipfs uses a repository in the local file system. By default, the repo is
  located at ~/.ipfs. To change the repo location, set the $IPFS_PATH
  environment variable:

      export IPFS_PATH=/path/to/ipfsrepo

  Routing

  IPFS by default will use a DHT for content routing. There is a highly
  experimental alternative that operates the DHT in a 'client only' mode that can
  be enabled by running the daemon as:

      ipfs daemon --routing=dhtclient

  This will later be transitioned into a config option once it gets out of the
  'experimental' stage.

  DEPRECATION NOTICE

  Previously, ipfs used an environment variable as seen below:

     export API_ORIGIN="http://localhost:8888/"

  This is deprecated. It is still honored in this version, but will be removed
  in a future version, along with this notice. Please move to setting the HTTP
  Headers.

DESCRIPTION

  Outputs the best value for the given key.

  There may be several different values for a given key stored in the DHT; in
  this context 'best' means the record that is most desirable. There is no one
  metric for 'best': it depends entirely on the key type. For IPNS, 'best' is
  the record that is both valid and has the highest sequence number (freshest).
  Different key types can specify other 'best' rules.

  Given a key of the form /foo/bar and a value of any form, this will write that
  value to the DHT with that key.

  Keys have two parts: a keytype (foo) and the key name (bar). IPNS uses the
  /ipns keytype, and expects the key name to be a Peer ID. IPNS entries are
  specifically formatted (protocol buffer).

  You may only use keytypes that are supported in your ipfs binary: currently
  this is only /ipns. Unless you have a relatively deep understanding of the
  go-ipfs DHT internals, you likely want to be using 'ipfs name publish' instead
  of this.

  Value is arbitrary text. Standard input can be used to provide value.

  NOTE: A value may not exceed 2048 bytes.

ipfs dht query

USAGE
  ipfs dht query <peerID>... - Find the closest Peer IDs to a given Peer ID by querying the DHT.

SYNOPSIS
  ipfs dht query [--verbose | -v] [--] <peerID>...

ARGUMENTS

  <peerID>... - The peerID to run the query against.

OPTIONS

  -v, --verbose bool - Print extra information. Default: false.

DESCRIPTION

  Outputs a list of newline-delimited Peer IDs.

SYNOPSIS
  ipfs diag

SUBCOMMANDS
  ipfs diag cmds - List commands run on this IPFS node.
  ipfs diag net  - Generate a network diagnostics report.
  ipfs diag sys  - Print system diagnostic information.

  Use 'ipfs diag <subcmd> --help' for more information about each command.

ipfs diag cmds

USAGE
  ipfs diag cmds - List commands run on this IPFS node.

SYNOPSIS
  ipfs diag cmds [--verbose | -v]

OPTIONS

  -v, --verbose bool - Print extra information. Default: false.

DESCRIPTION

  Lists running and recently run commands.

SUBCOMMANDS
  ipfs diag cmds clear           - Clear inactive requests from the log.
  ipfs diag cmds set-time <time> - Set how long to keep inactive requests in the log.

  Use 'ipfs diag cmds <subcmd> --help' for more information about each command.

ipfs diag cmds clear

USAGE
  ipfs diag cmds clear - Clear inactive requests from the log.

SYNOPSIS
  ipfs diag cmds clear

ipfs diag cmds set-time

USAGE
  ipfs diag cmds set-time <time> - Set how long to keep inactive requests in the log.

SYNOPSIS
  ipfs diag cmds set-time [--] <time>

ARGUMENTS

  <time> - Time to keep inactive requests in log.

ipfs diag sys

USAGE
  ipfs diag sys - Print system diagnostic information.

ipfs dns

USAGE
  ipfs dns <domain-name> - Resolve DNS links.

SYNOPSIS
  ipfs dns [--recursive | -r] [--] <domain-name>

ARGUMENTS

  <domain-name> - The domain-name name to resolve.

OPTIONS

  -r, --recursive bool - Resolve until the result is not a DNS link. Default: false.

DESCRIPTION

  Multihashes are hard to remember, but domain names are usually easy to
  remember.  To create memorable aliases for multihashes, DNS TXT
  records can point to other DNS links, IPFS objects, IPNS keys, etc.
  This command resolves those links to the referenced object.

  For example, with this DNS TXT record:

  	> dig +short TXT _dnslink.ipfs.io
  	dnslink=/ipfs/QmRzTuh2Lpuz7Gr39stNr6mTFdqAghsZec1JoUnfySUzcy

  The resolver will give:

  	> ipfs dns ipfs.io
  	/ipfs/QmRzTuh2Lpuz7Gr39stNr6mTFdqAghsZec1JoUnfySUzcy

  The resolver can recursively resolve:

  	> dig +short TXT recursive.ipfs.io
  	dnslink=/ipns/ipfs.io
  	> ipfs dns -r recursive.ipfs.io
  	/ipfs/QmRzTuh2Lpuz7Gr39stNr6mTFdqAghsZec1JoUnfySUzcy

ipfs file

USAGE
  ipfs file - Interact with IPFS objects representing Unix filesystems.

SYNOPSIS
  ipfs file

DESCRIPTION

  'ipfs file' provides a familiar interface to file systems represented
  by IPFS objects, which hides ipfs implementation details like layout
  objects (e.g. fanout and chunking).

SUBCOMMANDS
  ipfs file ls <ipfs-path>... - List directory contents for Unix filesystem objects.

  Use 'ipfs file <subcmd> --help' for more information about each command.

ipfs file ls

USAGE
  ipfs file ls <ipfs-path>... - List directory contents for Unix filesystem objects.

SYNOPSIS
  ipfs file ls [--] <ipfs-path>...

ARGUMENTS

  <ipfs-path>... - The path to the IPFS object(s) to list links from.

DESCRIPTION

  Displays the contents of an IPFS or IPNS object(s) at the given path.

  The JSON output contains size information. For files, the child size
  is the total size of the file contents. For directories, the child
  size is the IPFS link size.

  The path can be a prefixless ref; in this case, we assume it to be an
  /ipfs ref and not /ipns.

  Example:

      > ipfs file ls QmW2WQi7j6c7UgJTarActp7tDNikE4B2qXtFCfLPdsgaTQ
      cat.jpg
      > ipfs file ls /ipfs/QmW2WQi7j6c7UgJTarActp7tDNikE4B2qXtFCfLPdsgaTQ
      cat.jpg

  This functionality is deprecated, and will be removed in future versions. If
  possible, please use 'ipfs ls' instead.

ipfs files

USAGE
  ipfs files - Interact with unixfs files.

SYNOPSIS
  ipfs files [--f=false]

OPTIONS

  -f, --flush bool - Flush target and ancestors after write. Default: true.

DESCRIPTION

  Files is an API for manipulating IPFS objects as if they were a unix
  filesystem.

  NOTE:
  Most of the subcommands of 'ipfs files' accept the '--flush' flag. It defaults
  to true. Use caution when setting this flag to false. It will improve
  performance for large numbers of file operations, but it does so at the cost
  of consistency guarantees. If the daemon is unexpectedly killed before running
  'ipfs files flush' on the files in question, then data may be lost. This also
  applies to running 'ipfs repo gc' concurrently with '--flush=false'
  operations.

SUBCOMMANDS
  ipfs files cp <source> <dest>  - Copy files into mfs.
  ipfs files flush [<path>]      - Flush a given path's data to disk.
  ipfs files ls [<path>]         - List directories in the local mutable namespace.
  ipfs files mkdir <path>        - Make directories.
  ipfs files mv <source> <dest>  - Move files.
  ipfs files read <path>         - Read a file in a given mfs.
  ipfs files rm <path>...        - Remove a file.
  ipfs files stat <path>         - Display file status.
  ipfs files write <path> <data> - Write to a mutable file in a given filesystem.

  Use 'ipfs files <subcmd> --help' for more information about each command.

SYNOPSIS
  ipfs files flush [--] [<path>]

ARGUMENTS

  [<path>] - Path to flush. Default: '/'.

DESCRIPTION

DESCRIPTION

  Write data to a file in a given filesystem. This command allows you to specify
  a beginning offset to write to. The entire length of the input will be written.

  If the '--create' option is specified, the file will be created if it does not
  exist. Nonexistant intermediate directories will not be created.

  If the '--flush' option is set to false, changes will not be propogated to the
  merkledag root. This can make operations much faster when doing a large number
  of writes to a deeper directory structure.

  EXAMPLE:

      echo "hello world" | ipfs files write --create /myfs/a/b/file
      echo "hello world" | ipfs files write --truncate /myfs/a/b/file

  WARNING:

  Usage of the '--flush=false' option does not guarantee data durability until
  the tree has been flushed. This can be accomplished by running 'ipfs files
  stat' on the file or any of its ancestors.

DESCRIPTION

  IPNS is a PKI namespace, where names are the hashes of public keys, and
  the private key enables publishing new (signed) values. In both publish
  and resolve, the default name used is the node's own PeerID,
  which is the hash of its public key.

  You can use the 'ipfs key' commands to list and generate more names and their respective keys.

  Examples:

  Publish an <ipfs-path> with your default name:

    > ipfs name publish /ipfs/QmatmE9msSfkKxoffpHwNLNKgwZG8eT9Bud6YoPab52vpy
    Published to QmbCMUZw6JFeZ7Wp9jkzbye3Fzp2GGcPgC3nmeUjfVF87n: /ipfs/QmatmE9msSfkKxoffpHwNLNKgwZG8eT9Bud6YoPab52vpy

  Publish an <ipfs-path> with another name, added by an 'ipfs key' command:

  --ttl               string - Time duration this record should be cached for (caution: experimental).
  -k,      --key      string - Name of the key to be used, as listed by 'ipfs key list'. Default: Default: self..

DESCRIPTION

  IPNS is a PKI namespace, where names are the hashes of public keys, and
  the private key enables publishing new (signed) values. In both publish
  and resolve, the default name used is the node's own PeerID,
  which is the hash of its public key.

ipfs name resolve

USAGE
  ipfs name resolve [<name>] - Resolve IPNS names.

SYNOPSIS
  ipfs name resolve [--recursive | -r] [--nocache | -n] [--] [<name>]

ARGUMENTS

  [<name>] - The IPNS name to resolve. Defaults to your node's peerID.

OPTIONS

  -r, --recursive bool - Resolve until the result is not an IPNS name. Default: false.
  -n, --nocache   bool - Do not use cached entries. Default: false.

DESCRIPTION

  IPNS is a PKI namespace, where names are the hashes of public keys, and
  the private key enables publishing new (signed) values. In both publish
  and resolve, the default name used is the node's own PeerID,
  which is the hash of its public key.

  You can use the 'ipfs key' commands to list and generate more names and their respective keys.

  Examples:

  Resolve the value of your name:

    > ipfs name resolve
    /ipfs/QmatmE9msSfkKxoffpHwNLNKgwZG8eT9Bud6YoPab52vpy

  Resolve the value of another name:

    > ipfs name resolve QmaCpDMGvV2BGHeYERUEnRQAwe3N8SzbUtfsmvsqQLuvuJ
    /ipfs/QmSiTko9JZyabH56y2fussEt1A5oDqsFXB3CkvAqraFryz

  id. To specify a specific protocol, use the 'proto' option. The 'peer' and
  'proto' options cannot be specified simultaneously. The protocols that are
  queried using this method are outlined in the specification:
  https://github.com/libp2p/specs/blob/master/7-properties.md#757-protocol-multicodecs

  Example protocol options:
    - /ipfs/id/1.0.0
    - /ipfs/bitswap
    - /ipfs/dht

  Example:

      > ipfs stats bw -t /ipfs/bitswap
      Bandwidth
      TotalIn: 5.0MB
      TotalOut: 0B
      RateIn: 343B/s
      RateOut: 0B/s
      > ipfs stats bw -p QmepgFW7BHEtU4pZJdxaNiv75mKLLRQnPi1KaaXmQN4V1a
      Bandwidth
      TotalIn: 4.9MB
      TotalOut: 12MB
      RateIn: 0B/s
      RateOut: 0B/s
