Blockchain Explorer for Besu, Quorum and Ethereum
Clone the repo, navigate to the cloned directory and run the instance with:
docker-compose pull NODE_ENDPOINT=http://<node_endpoint> docker-compose up
Note that if setting
NODE_ENDPOINT to a local Ethereum instance, you may need to use the IP address associated with the Docker bridged interface.
On Linux, the bridged adapter should be 172.16.239.1, as denoted in docker-compose.yml. To connect to a local node, start with the command:
NODE_ENDPOINT=http://172.16.239.1:8545 docker-compose up
On MacOS and Windows, a platform sepcific command is required due to limitations around the Docker network stack on MacOS. This is as follows:
NODE_ENDPOINT=http://host.docker.internal:8545 docker-compose up
Note that in both cases, your local instance of geth must be started with
--rpcaddr 0.0.0.0 and
--rpcvhosts="*", or Epirus will be unable to access it.
Also note that on Windows Epirus may take a long time to come up (sometimes up to 20 minutes) due to Windows filesystem performance issues with Linux VMs.

To connect to new network you should remove the volumes associated with the old network

Tokens and contract metadata
This is a free version of our Epirus Blockchain Explorer. For additional features such as full tokens support, and contract metadata upload (so all transaction and events are decoded), please use our offering available on the Azure Marketplace.
We can also provide hosted Blockchain Explorer instances - these can be hosted within your cloud subscription or hosted by us.
Some of the features include:
- SSO authentication (Active Directory, SAML, Okta, etc)
- Dedicated database
- Data encryption at rest and in transit
- Continuous backup and point in time data recovery
- Full access to backups
- Tableau integration support
- Due to a limitation with Docker, you may only have one instance of the Explorer running at a time.
