ipfs sucks

So, i run ipfs daemon in my terminal, and it told me to go to 127.0.0.1:5001, okay, there i go

And i got this

ipfsucks

After 30 minutes of debugging what was happening, i discovered that IPFS checks the connection… using javascript

also weird javascript, because i went to the same website in chromium and i got this:

ipfsucks

Why does your web interface need esoteric JS to check if a daemon is running? jesus

The IPFS web interface is completely unusable if the daemon “isn’t running”
