drasyl architecture

drasyl is an open-source general-purpose overlay network framework for rapid development of distributed P2P applications.

By using drasyl developers can fully concentrate on creating distributed applications. With drasyl, boundaries between IP-based networks will be eliminated and secure communication channels between any two nodes will be provided. Zero-configuration is required to use drasyl. Developers can run a new drasyl node without having to write configuration files or provide IP addresses of other peers.


As drasyl is primarily developed for the research project Smart Networks for Urban Participation (SANE) and focuses on functionalities necessary for the project. However, drasyl is open to contributions made by the community.
