Automerge: Real-time data sync between edge devices

A talk at MobiUK, Cambridge, UK, 12 Sep 2018

A talk at the First UK Mobile, Wearable and Ubiquitous Systems Research Symposium (MobiUK).


We introduce Automerge, a JavaScript library for data synchronisation between mobile devices such as laptop computers and smartphones. It allows users to read and modify data even while their device is offline, and it automatically merges changes made concurrently on different devices. Unlike most existing data synchronisation systems, Automerge does not require data to be sent via a centralised server, but rather allows local and peer-to-peer networks to be used.
