The dfuse API is constantly evolving, with new features being added to help developers build faster for the blockchain. Today, we're super excited to unveil our new Token API for EOSIO.
In the blockchain space, things move very quickly and important news can sometimes be buried within all the information. We put together this recap of 2019's last quarter to ensure that you didn't miss out on any of the exciting things we have been up to at dfuse.
In a previous post we covered the inherent limitations of Ethereum nodes and some of the constraints these limitations place on developers, and described how the dfuse Platform can help. In this post, we’ll focus on the complex lifecycle of Ethereum transactions, and the challenges these create when trying to provide a great user experience in your dapp and how dfuse can help to achieve that.
It is with great excitement that, today, the dfuse team unveils dfuse Search for Ethereum.
At dfuse our mission is to make life easier for every blockchain developer with our slick, performant, and reliable APIs. As part of that mission, over the coming months we’ll be bringing dfuse to more and more of the most promising blockchain networks, based on factors such as the unique value of the technology and of the network, interested user base, strength of developer community, the strength of the teams supporting the network, etc. Today, we are excited to announce that we have recently entered into a strategic technical partnership with the Worbli Foundation to bring our slick blockchain APIs to the Worbli Network.
When pulling data from the blockchain, most of the information returned is stored in binary format so as to save space and allow for quicker transmission of data. This makes it difficult to sift through, as it first needs to be decoded into a readable format (ex: JSON). dfuse has recently expanded its GraphQL endpoints to include ABI-decoded table rows inside dfuse Search results.
To help developers build out tomorrow’s amazing dapps, we at dfuse are constantly looking to take more of the burden off of their plate. As such, we’re happy to announce our latest service, dfuse On Demand Networks. This new service provides a dedicated blockchain environment for dev, test or production, packed with the full suite of dfuse products, to any development team, on demand.
We have three exciting additions to enhance your development experience with dfuse. Improve your dfuse Search queries with our new
NOT operator. Through our new API endpoints, you can perform a REST API call to retrieve a transaction’s lifecycle, or look up a block number or block ID from a timestamp.
In our continual effort to index everything you need on the blockchain, we are thrilled to announce dfuse Events. This will allow a developer to choose which actions of their contract they would like to have indexed by dfuse, and which fields they would like to index.
We are happy to offer dfuse Streaming Search to developers across the EOSIO ecosystem, empowering them to build the next generation of dapps. This will help to bring the user experience on the blockchain to something closer to Web 2.0.
