NH Launcher

The Neighbourhoods Launcher, a Holochain app, is a common entryway into creating and joining p2p networks called Neighbourhoods. Using the Launcher, you can build and join Neighbourhoods that use NH-compatible "applets" along with the social-sensemaker.

Using the Launcher, one can create and access personal profiles, search for and join existing neighbourhoods, and add/configure applets into a neighbourhood. The Launcher is also where members can invite each other and interact using applets. Eventually, the Launcher will support inspection of the social sensemaker dashboard.

NOTE: You may encounter slow/tedious data refresh and difficulty in multi-agent environments due to a known issue.
