Dgit is Git with decentralized ownership (without changing your GitHub workflow)


dgit is an open-source project built by Quorum Control which combines the power of

git, the Tupelo DLT and Skynet from Sia.

dgit uses decentralized ownership and storage to make it trivial to create a decentralized, shareable git remote of your project.

dgit accomplishes this without changing your GitHub workflow except that you can keep collaborating when it goes down.

Getting Started

With three simple steps you can create a decentralized mirror of your existing github project. All changes will be automatically propogated to the mirror version and the git services you depend on will be there when you need them.


A quick install using brew gets us started: brew tap quorumcontrol/dgit && brew install dgit

Or skip the tap and directly install with: brew install quorumcontrol/dgit/dgit


Next you are going to run the init command in each repo you want to make decentralized: dgit init

This command does three things.

  1. dgit sets the appropriate remote urls in your repo's .git/config file.
  2. dgit creates a ChainTree which gets signed by the Tupelo DLT to specify ownership of the decentralized repo.
  3. dgit stores that repo on Skynet, the decentralized storage solution from Sia.

From there you can proceed with normal git commands.

If you ever want to pull from the mirror you can specify the mirror with a "dgit:".

As an example: git clone dgit://your_username/repo_name

If you want to keep your decentralized, shareable git remote in sync with your GitHub repo adding a simple github rule as illustrated in dgit-github-action is all it takes. Once completed your dgit decentralized shareable remote will always be up to date and ready when you need it.
