“Decentralized Githhub” Radicle Launches 1.0, Pioneering Decentralized Code Collaboration

Zug, Switzerland, March 26th, 2024, Chainwire

Radicle, the novel open-source, peer-to-peer code collaboration stack, is proud to announce the launch of Radicle 1.0. The release marks a significant milestone in the protocol’s journey, following its beta release in late 2020 and the alpha version in 2019. Unveiled today, Radicle 1.0 is set to transform the way developers publish and distribute open-source code, AI models, and research.

Conceived as a decentralized alternative to centralized forges like GitHub and GitLab, Radicle extends the capabilities of these systems with a decentralized identity system, cutting-edge gossip protocol, and integrated social artifacts which together form a self-hosted network for code collaboration.

The team behind the protocol believes that combating the increasing centralization of software products – which risks developers losing autonomy over their identity and data – is of paramount importance.

“Software shapes our reality and will continue to do so. We need a neutral place where software can be built and only an open protocol can provide that. Radicle is our answer to that – a sovereign code forge that gives users full autonomy and ownership of their data.” said co-founder Alexis Sellier.

Designed to provide a neutral environment where users retain full ownership of their identity and data, Radicle empowers developers to set the rules of their code universe, ensuring a platform that respects the sovereignty of its users.

Radicle’s novel software is not only highly secure but also free to use. It enables users to run their own nodes, a feature intended to foster a resilient network that is resistant to censorship and not reliant on trusted third-party services. True to its decentralized ethos, Radicle is entirely local-first, operating without the need for blockchain technology or digital tokens.

In Radicle’s network, each user runs the Radicle Stack, consisting of a command line interface and the Radicle Node networked service. Nodes exchange data via a gossip protocol, creating a robust, disruption-tolerant network. Additionally, users can opt for the Radicle Web client and HTTP daemon, offering a web-based experience for enhanced accessibility and convenience. Pro-liberty developers who are accustomed to using Github and GitLab are encouraged to join Radicle and start enjoying the benefits.
