Project Health

Project health is green. We are continuing to work with Fabric 1.0. Shared vision of a road-map helps contributors stay focused on the deliverables.
We use all of the following to help keep project health green: JIRA, RocketChat, email, Gerrit, Jenkins, GitHub, Zoom, Skype.
Questions asked via rocket-chat are being answered in a timely manner.
Daily standup calls are held M-F at 8:30 am. Some days there is one more at 4 pm to accommodate a different timezone of our newest member from California.
Good mix of backgrounds of contributors, from front-end to back-end expertise.
Patchsets are reviewed internally within contributing organizations and then within the developer community.


There are no issues at this time.


v0.3: Release 3 of blockchain-explorer is ready for Friday March 23rd, 2018. Going forward releases will be clearly tagged.

Overall Activity in the Past Quarter

In this quarter (Jan-Mar 2018) there were two major changes that happened.
1. Front-end was switched to React js

  • New UI design for front-end was adopted. It consists of a Dashboard page, Blocks, Transactions and Smart Contracts for a given channel.
  • Dashboard page has been created to display statistics.
  • Place holders have been created with mock data in one instance for the navigation pages available.

2. Switched from MySQL to Postgres database.

  • As a first step we simply switched out MySQL with postgres
  • As a second step we are working on a better DB design with future development in mind.

Current Plans

  • Complete the hookup of front end with backend data for all already planned navigation pages and dashboard widgets.
  • Create an admin function for “adding a channel”.
  • Create UI designs for expected admin pages.
