Welcome to "Tahoe"

Tahoe is a secure, decentralized, fault-tolerant filesystem. All of the source code is available under a Free Software, Open Source licence. This filesystem is encrypted and spread over multiple peers in such a way that it remains available even when some of the peers are unavailable, malfunctioning, or malicious. The one-page summary explains the unique properties of this system.

Get Started

Live demo web gateway -- try Tahoe out without installing it! (See also who is connected, recent uploads and downloads, and performance and load statistics, and more details and historical graphs of activity.)

"Install Tahoe" tells how to get and build the software, how to run a node that can upload and download files, and how to set up your own private grid or connect to the public test grid.

Get Involved

The tahoe-dev mailing list is the community forum for discussion of Tahoe design, implementation, and usage. The tahoe-announce mailing list is a low-volume mailing list for announcements of importance to the community.

The Dev page is the place to start hacking on Tahoe. It has bleeding-edge source code, development tools (such as code coverage and patch browsing) and documentation.


See the Doc page for explanation of how Tahoe works.

Sponsorship sponsors the Tahoe project. We are eternally grateful for their generous and public-spirited support.


See TracStartingPoints for how to use this bug tracker/source code browser/wiki.
