Lighthouse - A lightning fast search for the LBRY blockchain
Lighthouse is a lightning-fast advanced search engine API for publications on the lbrycrd with autocomplete capabilities. The official lighthouse instance is live at https://lighthouse.lbry.io
What does Lighthouse consist of?
- Elasticsearch as a backend db server.
- LBRYimport, an importer that imports the claims into the Elasticsearch database.
- Lighthouse API server, which serves the API and does all calculations about what to send to the end user.
- Node v8
To get started you should clone the git:
git clone https://github.com/lbryio/lighthouse
Grab the latest release of lbrycrd here:
Create a lbrycrd config file at ~/.lbrycrd/lbrycrd.conf which contains rpcuser,rpcpassword and rpcport. Then run lbrycrd in the background with that config file.
Make sure elasticsearch is running and run (from the lighthouse dir):
yarn install --production=false
Start an instance of the decoder:
cd decoder && pip install -r requirements.txt && python decoder.py
Build and run Lighthouse:
yarn run prod
You are now up and running! You can connect to lighthouse at http://localhost:50005, api documentation is here. Lighthouse will continue syncing in the background. It usually takes ~15 minutes before all claims are up to date in the database.
