Steem.Supply Back Online After A Small Glitch

in steemit •  2 months ago 

When I saw steemit.com adding that DDoS protection thing by CloudFlare, I was relatively happy: it's a good protection, and something that Steemit.com should have had for years already. Little did I know that this supplementary layer of security will break steem.supply badly.

Because of this tiny change, one of the calls that the app was making was left in the dark, so to speak. Until then, you could have read the basic information about a user following a link like this: http://steemit.com/@username. Well, since the DDoS protection thing came out, every link is filtered through it first, which means the first call I made for that type of link was "throttled" and I didn't get any user related info. And from there chaos ensued.

On one side, it's a more elegant way to get data directly from an API endpoint, I agree with that, on the other, I wish I'd had spotted this earlier.

Anyway, thanks to those who mentioned that steem.supply was down in the comments.

Also, a short reminder: if you think that my work (on steem.supply, and overall, on the Steem blockchain) matters, I would appreciate your vote for my witness node (use the link below).

Steem on!

Wanna know when you're getting paid?

I know the feeling. That's why I created steem.supply, an easy to use and accurate tool for calculating your Steemit rewards

It's free to use, but if you think this is a useful addition, I'd appreciate your witness vote.

Thank you!

Thanks for all the useful articles and tools you made for us, they really helped me in understanding how the steem blockchain works. By the way, are you working on an future version of steem.supply given the announced changes for HF21?

Great to know that the site is up i opened it up a few weeks ago didn't worked that time for me

More importantly we were getting a little worried about you. I guessed you were busy snaxxing bit it's nice to see your name crop up. Thanks for fixing Steem supply, still the number 1 app for price feed for me.
Beat wishes to whatever you're up to :-)

Thanks mate, appreciate your concern. All good here, as a matter of fact, swamped with work, but then again, it's good to have work to do, rather then other way around :)
