Handling connection of new nodes in Decentralized Chatting application

0 votes
I am trying to develop a chatting application using ipfs protocol along with frameworks like nodejs, expressjs, angularjs and using libp2p to handle nodes.

The nodes that I have created using Libp2p are communicating with each other but I need to mention their IP addresses and TCP ports. But this is like in typical centralized applications.

I do not want my system to keep track of the users, I want the nodes to interact even when a unknown user joins the system and sets up their node. In centralized application, I can handle this by sending signals but I do not want to do it because I want my application to be decentralized.

How can I implement this?

Libp2p handles discovery and connection of nodes by itself. You do not have to separately implement anything to handle this issue. When the new nodes join the network, you will get a primitive for addressing the process. This process addressing will dial to the process if the process is accessible in the network.

Look to the following examples to understand more about how it works.

I guess you are answering not the question that was asked. The real question, how can you figure out which nodes to connect to without having to go through the bootstrap list.

Hey, @Dmitryame

After looking at the explanation given above I could see it almost did justice with the question asked. But if you have some other explanation for that please let us know, it may help other users to explain the scenario from different angles possible.
