Tent is a communications protocol. It lets users store any
kind of data and send that data to other users in real time. Just like
other protocol-based services like email or the web, anyone can host
their own server or write apps. Also like email, users can host their
own Tent server or use a Tent hosting provider.
Tent stores data as posts on each server. Posts
are JSON and can contain binary attachments. Developers can create new
types of posts for any kind of data and create Tent apps for everything
from microblogging to cloud file sync.
