Introducing dfuse Streaming API for EOSOne of the biggest features missing from blockchains is a robust and reliable streaming API, which is a major hindrance to the mass adoption of EOS by developers. dfuse, developed by the team behind EOS Canada, is pleased to introduce the beta version of the first streaming API for developers looking to build dapps on EOSIO.
Real-time application areaEOSIO delivered the capability to interact with a blockchain at speeds previously only seen on a conventional database. Applications wishing to operate with real-time speeds need real-time data. By helping to remove the pain points developers experience in interacting with blockchains, such as decreased speed and degraded user experience, we expect with the dfuse Streaming API to see developers focus their efforts on the next generation of dapps. We also expect that the migration towards EOS by these developers will happen much sooner, as more of their previous knowledge and skills are now transferable.
Some of the amazing capabilities offered by the dfuse Streaming API
- Capture detailed aspects of an action: detailed RAM costs, deferred transactions, internal state changes
- Quickly process the chain to gather information and state from a specified blockheight
- The ability to be notified of changes to a smart contract’s table with deltas
