galacteek is a multi-platform Qt5-based browser and a P2P dapps (aka distributed apps) platform for the distributed web. It relies on the IPFS peer-to-peer technology.

galacteek nodes exchange linked data over peer-to-peer, encrypted channels. The goal of this P2P linked data engine is to facilitate serverless, censorship-free person-to-person communications, using an evolvable vocabulary. Take a look at dvoz, the core dapp.

The P2P dapps are written with the QML language and are stored on the distributed web (with IPFS). For more information on how to use dapps, see the dapps documentation
