Dat – Open Source Decentralized Data Sharing Tool
https://datproject.org/

Dat is a grant-funded, open-source, decentralized data sharing tool for efficiently versioning and syncing changes to data. Dat can be used to version data locally, or to share and sync data over the internet. Dat includes an optional peer-to-peer distribution system, meaning that the more widely that a dataset is shared, the faster it is for users to retrieve or sync a copy, and the more redundant that the dataset’s availability becomes. By building tools to build and share data pipelines, we aim to bring to data a style of collaboration similar to what Git brings to source code. Dat is designed as a general-purpose tool for any data on the Web, with our main priority being to ensure scientific data can be more easily published and archived. Dat is fully open source and is built using JavaScript, Node.js and Electron. This will be added to Entrepreneurial Resources Subject Tracer™. This will be added to Script Resources Subject Tracer™. This will be added to the tools section of Research Resources Subject Tracer™.
