I’m sorry, didn’t get the reminder on mail. Just switched on the notifications not to miss the new ones.
Here’s the report with demo video and you can also use the extension in the test net:

Hello!
Here’s the Jan report:

What progress was made on your grant this month?
Please summarize your progress in 3-5 sentences or bullet points:

To increase throughput and lower the gateway resources consuption when uploading large files we have changed the intermediate storage which is used to store client’s files while uploading them to the network - now the disk space is used. The files are deleted as soon as they are uploaded to the network.

All tariffs shown in the extension are now tied to the current SC/USD exchange rate according to USD prices shown on the Tiri web site.

Current version is 0.0.21: Releases · bsn-si/sia-datawallet-extension · GitHub.

I’ll update on the main net extension when it will be approved by the Chrome Web Store.

Hi, all!
The Feb report:

What progress was made on your grant this month?

In Feb we have published the Tiri main net extension. Current version is 1.0.0: Releases · bsn-si/sia-datawallet-extension · GitHub .

We have added the dapp version notification for users to update the dapp when a new version is published. Also, some manipulations with tariffs were made.
Here’s the last updated repo: GitHub - bsn-si/sia-datawallet-gateway

Hello @dsrdrk11a

Thank you for your progress report!

Hello! In March we didn’t make a lot. We are working with billing: have changed some tariffs mechanics and fixed a few minor problems, but still have to execute tests. We will push the new version till Tuesday, I think, and I’ll comment here when done.

The Mar report:

What progress was made on your grant this month?

We have worked with billing and tariffs, fixed different issues, for example - the free “disk” space indicator now correctly considers deleted files and tariff change.
Current version of the extension is 1.0.1: Releases · bsn-si/sia-datawallet-extension · GitHub .

Here are the last updated repos:

Hello! Sorry for silence, we’ve got national holidays in Slovenia, as well as in Serbia the whole last week and the team is out till tomorrow. From the code perspective we’ve just added a “support” form, so users could request support if they agree to reveal an email for messaging. I’ll push the update to Git asap and put a report form here.
In April we were working on the Tiri concept that will help to gain mass adoption. The Tiri dapp shows that a user can easily, yet privately and securely store data on-chain, but using a browser extension fits only archive storage tasks and users need an operational storage like Dropbox - this is the main feedback that we’ve got from our test and first users. So we are developing a technical description for using Tiri as a remote virtual disk storage.

April Progress Report

What progress was made on your grant this month?

We’ve added a user support form, so users could request support if they agree to reveal an email for messaging.
As we have fulfilled all the planned deliverables, the current work on the project is mostly focused on the product concept, model and technical design of the needed features.

Summarize any problems that you ran into this month and how you’ll be solving them.

I see these main tasks with additional features:

  1. Adding integration with local file system, so users could work with their files locally. This feature is quiet clear and we don’t see technical constraints. The tech description is prepared.
  2. File sharing. If we want to stay as decentralized as possible, this feature could be solved with an access list smart contract like here, for example, but smart contracts are not available at the moment. So this feature is something that requires contemplation over its concept.
  3. The HTLC would be a great feature for SIA mass adoption and for all projects on SIA as well, so we are eagerly monitoring the progress of the Komodo team’s work on this task. This should allow payments for SIA services from different networks.

The current version of the extension is 1.0.2

What will you be working on next?

In May I plan to finish a technical description of local FS integration and the product model.

Hello, @Kinomora
Yes, I didn’t make it intentionally as I supposed, that I don’t have to, as we have fulfilled all deliverables mentioned in the application and I didn’t see time commitments in the contract. If I’m wrong, I’m sorry, I’ll do my best to do it earlier next time. We didn’t stop with the project, despite took a little pause in the entire code development.

Here’s my report:

Progress Report Form

What progress was made on your grant this month?

Currently we are searching the right model for the product development and I’m writing the Tiri Vault white paper right now. I won’t show the draft now, but on the high level we see two products: the entire Tiri Vault and the Tiri Collaboration Suite.
The Tiri Vault will include a personal file storage wallet developped as a files folder on a user’s desktop/mobile (Dropbox like) + light browser extension and a Secret Notebook for storing short text notes and any other text credentials, including passwords, credit cards data and etc. with an autocomplete functionality to safely use them on websites. We have alredy completed a PoC of such a notebook in a form of a smart contract (currently the PoC is in the Substrate).

The second product is the Tiri Collaboration Suite, that includes safe files sharing functionality (a smart contract with encryption logic and an ACL that supports files sharing without re-encryption) with a p2p crypto backed private messenger (with SDP offers sent using a special smart contract). Both have already PoCs implemented by us (in FVM and Substrate accordingly).

Summarize any problems that you ran into this month and how you’ll be solving them.

Most of the additional functionality that we envision would dramatically improve the UX of a personal file wallet, but should be implemented in the form of smart contracts, that are not present in the SIA ecosystem. This is a challenge for us as it will need a user to operate with two wallets in different networks or implement a kind of an HTLC, as I wrote in the previous report.
