IPFS Pin Sync
Learn how to use the IPFS Pin Sync tool to synchronize CIDs from another pinning service to Filebase.
IPFS Pin Sync is a client-side tool that allows users to sync CIDs from one IPFS pinning service to another. IPFS Pin Sync is available for use as an HTTP webpage, or through publication on IPFS, allowing it to be run from any IPFS node.
By default, IPFS Pin Sync is configured to sync CIDs from Pinata to Filebase.
Read below to learn how to use the IPFS Pin Sync tool to synchronize CIDs from another pinning service to Filebase.
For the source provider in this example, we use Pinata. The source provider can be any IPFS pinning service that provides an API.
Click the drop-down menu for 'Choose Bucket to Generate Token', then choose the IPFS Filebase Bucket you want to use.
Once complete, the CIDs from the Source will be listed along with the CIDs from the Destination.
Once this status has changed to ‘Pinned’, the synchronization has completed, and the pinned CIDs can be removed from the source provider.
