I've been studying on how devs usually go about handling the metadata for NFT collections and from what I've seen, this reply on this post sums up the whole process:
My problem is I'm creating a platform where I'm generating NFT's on demand, where the metadata will be created by the users choices, which means that I can't pre upload a folder with all of the NFT's metadata into IPFS.
I thought about creating a script that would use Pinata and upload the NFT's metadata into IPFS as they were being created and posteriorly minted, but if I initially create a folder with 1 NFT's metadata, I'm not able to add any others in the future since IPFS folders are immutable, as far as I saw.
The only option that I thought of would be to, instead have something like a baseURI + tokenID as my IPFS link, I would basically have one baseURI for each NFT's metadata that I would simply upload into IPFS, meaning I would have something like:
where each NFT would basically have a different baseURI, that wouldn't really be called baseURI, just using the term as this would be the baseURI if we were using the tokenID in the front.
Would this work? Is there any other way I can actually have a folder that I can update on each token minted?
