I Built Dexplorer: Disposable Cosmos-based Blockchain Explorer

Recently, I built an exciting project called Dexplorer. As a developer working on a Cosmos-based blockchain on my local machine, I found it quite challenging to test a local chain because we had to query through CLI all the time. So, I came up with an idea: what if we built a temporary explorer that works for all Cosmos-based chains? That's when I started developing Dexplorer, a disposable light explorer specifically designed to connect to any Cosmos SDK chain using only WebSocket RPC.

Home

Dexplorer is only a frontend application, which means there is no cache or pre-processing. However, it pulls data from RPC as needed, making it an excellent tool for developers working on Cosmos-based chains who want to explore blockchain data through a user interface.

Currently, the app has several features, including:

  • The ability to connect to any Cosmos-based RPC
  • A dashboard to easily monitor chain activity
  • The ability to subscribe to the latest blocks and transactions
  • A search function that allows you to quickly find blocks, transactions, and accounts
  • A list of active validators
  • A list of proposals
  • Blockchain parameters

With Dexplorer, you can quickly and easily monitor the activity of Cosmos-based chains, making it an invaluable tool for developers. And, in the future, I plan to connect Dexplorer with a wallet, enabling users to process transactions directly through the app.

If you're interested in checking out Dexplorer for yourself, head to https://dexplorer.space. And if you want to dive into the code, you can find it on Github at https://github.com/arifintahu/dexplorer.
