Insight UI

A Bitcoin blockchain explorer web application service for Bitcore Node using the Insight API.

Quick Start

Please see the guide at https://bitcore.io/guides/full-node for information about getting a block explorer running. This is only the front-end component of the block explorer, and is packaged together with all of the necessary components in Bitcore.

Getting Started

To manually install all of the necessary components, you can run these commands:

npm install -g bitcore-node
bitcore-node create mynode
cd mynode
bitcore-node install insight-api
bitcore-node install insight-ui
bitcore-node start

Open a web browser to http://localhost:3001/insight/

Development

To run Insight UI locally in development mode:

Install bower dependencies:

$ bower install

To compile and minify the web application's assets:

$ grunt compile

There is a convenient Gruntfile.js for automation during editing the code

$ grunt

Multilanguage support

Insight UI uses angular-gettext for multilanguage support.

To enable a text to be translated, add the translate directive to html tags. See more details here. Then, run:

grunt compile

This action will create a template.pot file in po/ folder. You can open it with some PO editor (Poedit). Read this guide to learn how to edit/update/import PO files from a generated POT file. PO file will be generated inside po/ folder.

If you make new changes, simply run grunt compile again to generate a new .pot template and the angular javascript js/translations.js. Then (if use Poedit), open .po file and choose update from POT File from Catalog menu.

Finally changes your default language from public/src/js/config

gettextCatalog.currentLanguage = 'es';

This line will take a look at any .po files inside *po/** folder, e.g. po/es.po, po/nl.po. After any change do not forget to run grunt compile.

Note

For more details about the Insight API configuration and end-points, go to Insight API GitHub repository.
