Blockchain Explorer for Besu, Quorum and Ethereum

alt text


This dockerized environment is designed for viewing private Quorum, Pantheon and Ethereum networks.


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, as denoted in docker-compose.yml. To connect to a local node, start with the command:

NODE_ENDPOINT= 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 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.

Append the -d argument to run the containers in the backgroud

You will be able to access the Explorer UI via:

To stop the containers use:

docker-compose down

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

docker-compose down -v
