Everlife Explorer 2.0.0

We are pleased and excited to announce the release of Everlife Explorer 2.0.0!

Newest API usage

Everlife Explorer 2.0.0 incorporates the latest releases of all underlying technology - from Process Management, the GUI Framework, the Everchain, and the Stellar library.

The latest explorer is faster, smaller, and more performant than ever before! 😎

Features

This release contains:

  1. Mnemonic key generation - because it's much easier to remember a list of words than your public/private keys. For new users, these words hold the key to (re-)generate the avatar, it's stellar wallet, and it's ethereum wallet as well!
  2. Face recognition - your avatar can now recognise your face and log you in. The new face recognition allows you to set up a password protected access to your avatar that can be unlocked only by your face. 🤯
  3. Purchase EVER functionality - you can now purchase EVER from any other account that contains XLM or other assets that can be traded through to EVER. The system will find you the best price and the best path for the amount you wish to purchase. 💰 💵

Download the release for your OS below.

We are pleased to announce that in this release of the Everlife Community Node we have managed to make your avatar slimmer and faster. It is now half the size of the earlier release and performance is significantly improved. In addition, this release has removed dependencies on NodeJS and Git, added a way for your avatar to support your website through chat, and we now provide a server version so you never need to worry about your avatar stopping when you shut down your desktop.

With lots of other minor fixes and enhancements, this release is well worth your download.

Release Features

  1. Support Chat Widget: You can now embed a chat widget on any website you own and connect it with your avatar. This allows visitors to chat with your avatar which will reply from your own Knowledge base.
  2. Server Version: Now your avatar can run 24/7 on a dedicated server or VPS so you don't need to keep your desktop running forever.
  3. Easy Install: We have significantly reduced the pre-requisites you needed for setting up your community node. You no longer need to install either NodeJS or Git.
  4. Slimmer, Lighter, and Faster: Significant work has gone into reworking the insides of the Avatar to streamline it and make it smaller (almost half the size), lighter, and faster to download, install, and run.

Installing

To install your Avatar on the community node please you still need to have:

  • Python

installed on your machine. With this done, simply download the appropriate version (Win/Lin/Mac/Server) and run the installer and you're ready to go! Note that if you are on an older version of Mac you may need the Mac Mojave version

Source Code

As always source code for this avatar node UX is available here: https://github.com/everlifeai/everlife-community-node

We are working on improving the source code availability for future releases.

Release Highlights

Using the Chat Widget

One of the exciting new features is the ability to use your Avatar to support your small business website. With this feature, you can create a Facebook messenger chatbot on your website and connect it with your Avatar.

This will allow visitors to your website to chat with your Avatar directly. The Avatar will respond to any basic queries they may have (from all the Knowledge Bases you have given it). Any queries it does not have answers to it will forward to you and you can reply to them directly.

Please see the attached "Chat Widget Instructions.pdf" document for details on how to set this up.

Using The Server Version

To use the server version you first need some dependencies set up.

  1. NodeJS (with npm)
  2. Git

And the make tools for your distribution:

Debian / Ubuntu

apt-get install \
  automake \
  g++ \
  libgconf-2-4 \
  libtool \
  libxext-dev \
  libxkbfile-dev \
  libxtst-dev \
  m4

CentOS / Fedora

dnf install \
  libXext-devel \
  libXtst-devel \
  libxkbfile-devel \
  gcc-c++ \
  m4 \
  automake \
  libtool

Mac OS

brew install libtool automake

After you have set up the dependencies, simply follow these steps:

  1. Unzip the server package into a directory
  2. Enter the directory and run npm install
  3. After the install is complete run npm run server to start your avatar as a server node

Easy Install

In this release we have significantly reduced the amount of dependencies you needed to get the community node installed. You no longer need to first set up NodeJS or Git for the base community node to work. You still need to install Python and, if you use external skills you will need npm to set up the external skill dependencies. In future releases we will be removing these requirements as well.

Slimmer, Lighter, Faster

Internally the Avatar has undergone a lot of changes to make it streamlined, cleaner, faster, and more robust. This new and improved Avatar is almost half the size of the previous release, faster, and uses less memory. Enjoy!
