I have uploaded the dapp frontend folder along with contracts json files on the IPFS using

ipfs add <path>
ipfs name publish <hash>

commands. I am running Ganache for in-memory virtual blockchain. ipfs daemon is running but when I open https://ipfs.io/ipfs/(hash) the site is loading not opening unlike when I open localhost:8080/ipfs/(hash). I checked

ipfs swarm peers

I have 120 connected peers. What could be the problem?

  • What are you using Ganache for? IPFS does not depend on Ethereum. Mar 27, 2019 at 0:01
  • Does any error appears on the browser development console?

  • Actually, I waited for some time after which the dapp loaded successfully.

You should consider using https://terminal.co to host on IPFS. It makes it much easier by linking your GitHub repository and deploying the website. Also, you can add a custom domain if you would like.
