Detailed information

New Features

In this release, I started adding charts so let’s look at the example of beneficiary reward to see reward pages form.

In the current release, I also added on-demand data download to the tables. Now it is possible to show data over all the time of the account exists.

How receiving beneficial rewards are implemented:

So far as all accounts’ data is stored in the MongoDB we can get all operations of the type:

As there are cases when we need to handle a lot of data so I solved that the data for charts will be collected using the DB by the following request:

$data_by_monthes = $collection->aggregate([
        '$match' => [
            'type' => ['$eq' => 'comment_benefactor_reward'],
            'op.benefactor' => ['$eq' => $acc]
    ['$unwind' => '$op'],
        '$group' => [
            '_id' => ['date' => ['M' => ['$month' => '$date'], 'Y' => ['$year' => '$date'],]],
            'total' => ['$sum' => '$op.VESTS'],
            'count' => ['$sum' => 1]

We have two reward types:
those which are received by the account 'op.benefactor' => ['$eq' => $acc]
those which are given out by the account (i.e.from its posts) 'op.benefactor' => ['$ne' => $acc]

Data sampling for this kind of tables are proceeded by the request:

$data_by_monthes = $collection->aggregate([
        '$match' => [
            'date' => ['$gte' => $date_start, '$lt' => $date_end],
            'type' => ['$eq' => 'comment_benefactor_reward'],
            'op.benefactor' => [$typeQ => $acc]

So we get monthly data, then handle them in foreach and convert them into desirable form.

foreach ($data_by_monthes as $state) {
    if ($type == 'In') {
        $arr['author'] = $state['op'][1]['author'];
    if ($type == 'Out') {
        $arr['author'] = $state['op'][1]['benefactor'];

    $arr['permlink'] = $state['op'][1]['permlink'];
    $arr['VESTS'] = $state['op'][1]['VESTS'];
    $arr['SP'] = BchApi::convertToSg($state['op'][1]['VESTS']);
    $arr['timestamp'] = $state['timestamp'];
    $res_arr[] = $arr;

See more details here: app/Http/Controllers/BenefactorRewardsController.php


Besides each release contains changes for data transfer from blockchain to the DB. I can’t find an error-free way so far. Any sort of bugs occurs all the time :(

I suppose it's needed to move on to the separate library for work with DB and to implement a full-value initial collection of data from blocks.

Thanks for the contribution!

The benefactor rewards chart is very interesting! What determines which dates are shown? I checked @utopian-io for example, and it only shows data for 2017 Oct, 2017 Dec and 2018 May. It would be really cool if it was possible to see more months than that.

I am really happy you included a screenshot showing which commits are included in this release! However, keep in mind that only commits that are 14 days old or less at the time of submitting are eligible. Also, it would be nice if you'd create a PR with all the relevant commits, which makes it easier for us to have an overview of the changes, but of course this isn't required.

Thanks for approving.

For @utopian.pay there is more month https://steemit.accusta.tk/@utopian.pay/benefactor

For @utopian-io I can see late evening, why only shows data for 2017 Oct, 2017 Dec and 2018 May.

Commits that late 14 days contains bugfixes, not so important. Included just for statistics. :)


Cool! I think it's because there simply weren't any beneficiaries set in other months (forgot that they used @utopian.pay for that), so it makes sense, thanks.
