How I can upload folder to IPFS?

To upload a folder to IPFS Desktop, you can use the "Add folder" option in the IPFS Desktop app. This will recursively add all the files in the folder to IPFS, creating a hash for each file that will be added to the IPFS network.

To use the "Add folder" option, follow these steps:

  1. Open IPFS Desktop.
  2. In the left-hand panel, click on the "Files" option. This will open the IPFS files tab, which shows all the files and folders currently added to IPFS.
  3. In the top-right corner of the IPFS files tab, click on the "Add folder" button. It looks like a folder with a plus sign on it.
  4. In the file picker that appears, navigate to the folder that you want to upload, select it, and click "Open".
  5. This will add the folder and all its contents to IPFS. You will see the files and folders appear in the IPFS files tab, along with the hashes for each file.
  6. If you want to make the files in your folder available to others on the IPFS network, you will need to run an IPFS node and connect to the IPFS network. This will allow others to access the files in your folder using the hashes generated by the "Add folder" option.

  1. Start by clicking on the ‘Buckets’ option from the menu to open the Buckets dashboard.2. Select your IPFS Bucket.
  2. After clicking on the bucket name, you will see any previously uploaded files. To upload another file, select 'Upload', then select 'Folder' from the options. 4. Select the folder you'd like to upload to IPFS.
  3. Once uploaded, the folder will look similar to IPFS individual files. 6. Copy the IPFS CID for your folder, then navigate to[CID]. The contents of your folder will be listed.
