Related Projects

There are several projects to extend Tahoe-LAFS or integrate it with other tools.

Tips and Tricks

Tahoe-LAFS can be integrated into several other tools simply by adjusting some configuration settings. The Tips and Tricks page describes some of those.

Spin-off Projects

These are projects that are currently primarily maintained by Tahoe-LAFS developers.


We are fortunate to have a vast library of high quality Free Software that we can re-use to build Tahoe-LAFS. We contribute patches and bug reports back to these projects. The following list is incomplete -- see also src/allmydata/

  • Python
  • Twisted
  • gcc
  • Nevow
  • setuptools
  • OpenSSL

Other Projects

These projects have no specific relationship with our project, but they are similar in some ways and so may be of interest. We sometimes exchange ideas with the developers of some of these projects, especially on the p2p-hackers mailing list.

  • GNUnet is an anonymous, censorship-resistant, file-sharing network. licence: GPLv2+
  • Camlistore is a distributed data store plus some ideas about synchronization, sharing, and modelling. licence: Apache
  • git is a decentralized revision control tool. No wait! It is a beautiful decentralized data store with a grotesque revision control tool built on top. (Zooko takes full responsibility for this careless slander.) licence: GPLv2
