dat is currently pre-alpha. You can test it out or hack on it now, but all things are subject to change.

To learn more about dat please read what is dat?.

Hacking on dat

If you are interested in testing out the pre-alpha version of dat you can install it using npm (which usually gets installed when you install node)

dat is primarily intended as a command line tool. There is also a programmatic API that you can use in node.js programs for more advanced use cases, as well as a way to have dat call programs written in other programming languages to transform data.

Install

To get the currently published version (recommended):

npm install dat -g

The -g means "install globally" which makes the dat command available in your command line path.

You can also install the latest development version with git:

git clone git://github.com/maxogden/dat.git
cd dat
npm install
npm link

How to use dat

See usage.md for usage, or type dat help.
