SteemWatch 0.5.0 Is Deployed! Real-time Event Stream Is Online!

in steemwatch •  3 years ago

SteemWatch is the notification center for Steemit.com that anybody can sign up to. Today I am happy to announce that I deployed version 0.5.0 into production.

Release Notes

As usual, you can find details on GitHub, but let me introduce the major addition here as well.

Real-time Event Stream

I added a new section to the webapp, Event Stream, which you can just open and watch your customized event feed being streamed into the browser. The same user-defined filter as for Slack applies.


connected

The stream features auto-reconnect right now, so in case there are any issues, it will try to auto-reconnect automatically.


disconnected

The stream is pretty simple for now, there is no history, no buffering, so in case the connection is lost, the events are lost as well. But it would just take too long to deploy this with the history logic in place. And really, the feed is pretty cool as it is already, just see some screenshots or try yourself:

All event kind supported for Slack are supported in this feed as well.

What Is Next?

The event stream implementation is pretty simple, without any history, buffering and such. I will try to improve this to make the feed more handy. Adding desktop notifications would be also cool. But really, for now I just want to make the event stream more robust and handy.

Support

As usual, any support is greatly appreciated. SteemWatch is a free service for now. You can just upvote this post, or donate my effort directly if you feel like doing so.

In any case, have fun with SteemWatch, I hope that you like the improvements!

Of course, there are some issues just now that I publish the release :-) Let me fix the issues ASAP.

·

Ok, it's a bug in go-steem/rpc, let me fix it.

·
·

Hotfixed in production.

·

And now it is steemd dead, fixing it as well... Seriously, what is wrong? Just when I published this post :D

·
·

Fixed, sorry for the downtime, but it was not really in my hands...

Also feel free to join steemwatch channel on Steemit Rocket Chat to be up to date when there are updates, issues and so on. Or just drop by and say hi, that is cool as well ;-)

This is coming in a timely fashion and very useful for many, thanks a bunch! Namaste :)

·

My pleasure ;-)

I'll be honest, I'm a bit turned off that I have to sign up to participate. I'm one of those people that don't like to sign up for anything unless I absolutely have to. Is there any chance this could work without signing up? Are there any technical limitations preventing this that could be overcome?

·

You have to sign up so that you can create your personalised event filter. And no, I am not going to provide any unfiltered event stream. There are too many events happening on the blockchain anyway and it would be a waste of bandwidth, to stream everything into the browser or something.

·
·

I tried google sign up but it gave me internal server error, signed up with facebook and it's currently stuck at loading screen.

·
·

Understandable. Thanks for the explanation!

Do I have to put @ in front of the name or not?

·

ńo, no @ is needed before the name

·
·

Yeah, sorry, that is probably not documented properly.

Great, time to stalk some whales. Kinda like how killer whales hunt. But less gruesome more just stalker like.

This is great! I'd love to integrate this functionality into SteemShovel

All these analytical tools for users is welcome news and a sign of a growing user base that wants to contribute to the success of the platform.

Woohoo! Real time event stream, just what I was waiting for. Thanks a bunch for everything, @void.

Can't wait for the desktop notifications!

I wish I could down vote these without opening them...

·

Downvote what exactly?

·
·

Not you or your post, sorry it was late last night. The stupid comments that pop up in my feed on legitimate posts.

Very cool, thanks for the update!

Hi, whenever I try to create a slack steem account and click on your link , I 've this message :

Heroku | No such app
There is no app configured at that hostname.
Perhaps the app owner has renamed it, or you mistyped the URL.

Am I missing something ? I would love to have notifications through slack !

·

Steem Slack was disabled, it is not being used any more. People moved to https://steemit.chat and I am working on the notifier for that right now. Before that is ready please use https://steemwatch.com/eventstream as a temporary solution.

·
·

Ok, thank you for replying, I'll do that.
Nice work btw ! I hope it won't be too complicated to get the notifier working again, good luck ;)

·
·

any update on a rocket.chat webhook for steem notifications? i am using rocket.chat on my own website and having steem in there would be great.

very ncie work! thanks for putting effort and time into it:D

·

Glad you like it :-)

·

My pleasure ;-)
