Updates


I've been deeply focused on my SDS (Steem Data Service) development lately and am currently tweaking and trying out different setups. A few days ago I installed a new data server, which will be used to deliver the already parsed blocks and block indices in a fast and easy way to other SDS instances.

The required time for planing/developing the services, parsing, compressing the blocks (own compression + xz) and testing the resulting data is massive, but I'm making good progress. I changed the number of blocks per file from 100,000 to 10,000, because it's easier to provide/xz the updates in smaller block archives. When an instance is 30,000 blocks behind, it only needs to download the latest three block archives, update the block indices and voila, we are nearly there ;)

There were a number of lessons to be learned and I even needed to re-compress all blocks again (which sucks)², but at least I now have an external solution for faster exchanging the data, so that from now on I can make all testing on a dedicated machine instead of my local one.


My recent morning routine looks like:

  • Go SteemWorld.
  • See VP is at 100%.
  • No time to read any posts.
  • Go Feed and make votes in 'Chaos Mode'.

Please forgive me... ^^


Don't let anybody distract you from achieving your goals!
Diving deep into blocks again...

Have a 'mooning' week!

Caching Posting/Memo Keys


As I wrote in my last post:

The Posting/Memo Keys are now being cached in your browser's local storage (encrypted), so that you don't need to enter them again after reloading the site. All 'higher' keys are never being cached anywhere and I improved the checking routine in the Input Dialog to make sure that people don't use their Owner/Active Key in places where only the Posting Key is required.

If you don't want to use the new caching feature, there is now a new option to be found in Settings:

In the making

   ( A )


  • Responsive Design for mobile devices
  • Post Viewer and Editor
  • Steem Data Service (SDS)
  • Theme Builder
  • Starting a witness node

   ( B )


  • Different views, no limit in the Posts Overview (requires SDS)
  • Account Operations without limits, custom date ranges and filters, jump to day x (requires SDS)
  • Exact (separated SP, STEEM and SBD) All Time Rewards in the Stats Section (requires SDS)
  • Rewards Overview Tool with searching capabilites (requires SDS)

   ( C )


  • RC costs calculation
  • Downloadable SteemWorld that can be run locally
  • More details in Coming Rewards (number of posts/comments, pie charts?, filters?)

You never need to be forgiven buddy! Thanks for all you do 😊❤️

I actually used a new feature a few days ago...and it reminded me of how this site is growing...maybe you will soon need someone to write a Help file so as to explain all that can be done (in simple terms for the non-coders among us).

I think this is the first time I have not been able to multiple-vote for you in the comment section!

Hi @steemchiller,
The key caching feature really likes me and saves me from going to where I have them stored to copy/paste them, thanks!
It's hard for those we are busy in a daily basis to read and curate posts, I'm totally with you.
My support and best wishes for your work, keep on! your doing really nice, wish I had more resources to support you as you deserve.
Have a nice weekend
Hugs

Sometimes there is just not enough time @steemchiller, and that's really OK... you can't be all things at all time. I have been working for myself for almost 20 years, so I know how it goes when there is just not enough time to do everything you want.

SteemWorld remains one of the very best things about our ecosystem!

Amazing work. Thank you.
My clearest resteem of the week.

• Go SteemWorld.
• See VP is at 100%.

Please forgive me... ^^
@SteemChiller

Nothing to forgive, sir!
Thank you for your dedication to the #steem community.

WE immer kann ich das meiste was du mir erzaehlst nicht verstehen aber ich bin sehr froh dass du ein tool fuer uns baust das ich verstehen kann LOL

I love your very human morning routine, ahahhahhah! ;)

Go ahead with your SDS: I can't wait to see it working as you have dreamed!
Thanks for implementing memo key caching: it's useful!

A huge hug
@amico

Keep this going brother, you are on the right path

Hi,

Could you update this. The numbers are wrong. The 198.735 Mvest is in reality STEEM.

·

Thanks for the hint! Indeed it's STEEM and I will remove the whole 'Total Vesting Fund' row, because the sum is already being displayed in the 'Total Vesting Shares' row.

thumbsup For this great work. Looking out for the Desktop Version.

Hey, @steemchiller.

It's good to hear from you again. I hope you are well, in addition to all the progress you are making on the front, middle and back ends of steemworld. I hope you are getting the compensation you need. I hope you are getting the rest and recreation you need. I don't know when you could possibly being doing the other, but I still wish it for you.

Onward and upward.

Sure good to hear from you @steemchiller! I was looking on your profile a couple of days ago, to see if somehow I'd missed something.

"I've been deeply focused on my SDS (Steem Data Service) development lately and am currently tweaking and trying out different setups."

This sounds very good and, perhaps, may explain the delay. I know what it is like to be deep into a project ...

Amen on the ...

"Don't let anybody distract you from achieving your goals!"

And not to worry, nothing to forgive! Thanks for the amazing work you do for us and for increasing (it is going to go up, right?) the value of the Steem blockchain. 👍

Upvoted! 😁😁😁

Been visiting your site everyday for my account data. A very good service to the steem community indeed.

I absolutely love your project @steemchiller. I've been meaning to mention a function that I can't find on steemworld. Can you let me know where it is? I'm looking for the STEEM/SBD spread between the two coins. It kinda should be in the Order Section menu, but I'm not seeing it. Is it somewhere else? Or is it just not there?

Thank you! The spread is not yet being displayed in there, but I will add it to the Orderbook tab with one of the next updates ;)

seriously ? 20GB for one block ? @steemchiller

·

At time of making the screenshot there were 1989 archive files with 20 million blocks ready to download. I'm currently still uploading the next bunch of 10M blocks. Size for the whole blockchain + indices will be at least 50GB (strongly compressed).
