tracker: dapp runtime standard
this is a draft :)
tracker is a standards-based runtime for distributed applications that is designed to be simple enough for a motivated individual to implement in a relatively short time-frame. using this guide together with small number of supporting tools and libraries you will be able to construct, and fully understand, your own standards-conforming peer to peer application runtime. a handful of demo applications and conformance validators are available to assist this process.
tracker apps are small software components that serve 9p filesystems. using standardized interfaces makes it possible to replace any component with a new implementation. we will focus on the core filesystem interfaces that are needed to communicate with other tracker clients. the complete runtime is very minimal, but well suited for hosting advanced p2p systems and user friendly graphical applications.
