Prerequisites

Installation

  1. 1.
    For a no-mess installation to get Explorer up and running, copy the following code into an accessible file docker-compose.yml:
version: '3.9'
services:
explorer-postgres:
image: provenanceio/explorer-database:latest
container_name: explorer-postgres
environment:
- POSTGRES_USER=postgres
- POSTGRES_PASSWORD=password1
ports:
- 5432:5432
explorer-service:
image: provenanceio/explorer-service:latest
container_name: explorer-service
ports:
- 8612:8612
environment:
- SPRING_PROFILES_ACTIVE=container
- DB_USER=postgres
- DB_PASS=password1
- DB_HOST=postgres
- SPRING_DATASOURCE_URL=jdbc:postgresql://explorer-postgres:5432/explorer
- DB_PORT=5432
- DB_NAME=explorer
- DB_SCHEMA=explorer
- DB_CONNECTION_POOL_SIZE=40
- SPOTLIGHT_TTL_MS=5000
- INITIAL_HIST_DAY_COUNT=14
- EXPLORER_MAINNET=false
# Hits the locally running node
- EXPLORER_PB_URL=http://host.docker.internal:9090
- EXPLORER_FIGMENT_APIKEY=45af964c1cc7292d06db51b5d9a523a4
- EXPLORER_FIGMENT_URL=https://pio-testnet-1--lcd.datahub.figment.io

explorer-frontend:

container_name: explorer-frontend
ports:
- 3000:3000

  1. 1.
    a. For the most up-to-date compose file, head here.
  2. 2.
    From the location of the above saved file, run `docker-compose pull. This pulls the latest versions of the dockers defined in the file.
  3. 3.
    Once the pull is complete, run docker-compose up. This starts up the dockers as a single unit.
Once it's up and running, you should be able to access the UI from http://localhost:3000/dashboard.

Using Github/IDE

Additional prerequisites:
  1. 2.
    From within your favorite IDE (or CLI, you brute), you'll need to get everything to build. This project uses Gradle as the build tool. Run the following series of commands from the root directory to get everything built:
    1. 1.
      sh ./gradlew
    2. 2.
      ./gradlew clean proto:generateProto
    3. 3.
      ./gradlew build
  2. 3.
    Start up the database
    1. 1.
      Run docker-compose -f docker/docker-compose-db.yml up -d . This starts the database in a docker environment.
    2. 2.
      By running the database separately, you can keep it running in the background while starting and stopping the frontend separately.
  3. 4.
    Run ./gradlew bootRun -Dspring.profiles.active=development to run in a development environment.
  4. 5.
    Start up the frontend
    1. 1.
      Open docker/docker-compose.yml
    2. 2.
      Make the following changes
version: '3.9'
services:
# explorer-postgres:
# image: provenanceio/explorer-database:latest
