Maximum Open Files on Ubuntu, Mac OS, ChromeOS

We've had a report with uploading large numbers of files using ipfs-deploy with Fission support that you may need to increase the number of open files that your operating system supports. This could also occur with fission watch.

For ubuntu, read underyx's article to increase the number of open files allowed.

For Mac OS, Wilson Mar has a one liner:

sudo launchctl limit maxfiles 65536 200000

As described in the article, you'll want to add it to your bash or other shell profile so this change is permanent.

On a Chromebook in the native ChromeOS shell? Yeah, Boris hit this issue too when running large jekyll or gatsby builds:

sudo sysctl fs.inotify.max_user_watches=1048576

Re-installing brew on Mac

We've had some hiccups with our brew formula recently. To re-install / reset brew, run the following:

brew untap fission-suite/fission

Now re-run the installation instructions, copied here for convenience:

brew tap fission-suite/fission
brew install fission-cli

This is related to issue #37.
