Feathercoin daemon and wallet production version 0.17.0.2

Looking for Feathercoin Blockexplorer with an API


  • | Tip priestc

    I know there are about a half-dozen FTC blockexplorers that are out there, but none of them I know of have an API. There used to be a BitPay Insight instance running on ftc-c.com, but it appears to be no longer running. I need this API for a project I’m building that I want to support FTC.

    Try this.

    @ChekaZ That API is missing some essential functions. Such as “Push TX”, and “Unspent Outputs”. These endpoint are essential to building a wallet, and the feathercoin.com API is missing these… The BitPay Insight instance had everything I need…

    Dont take this the wrong way, Im not being an ass but why dont you set it up? Do you have a server that it can be run on? It would help fellow users like yourself (if you need an api, others may as well). I think thats what @aciddude was setting up at one point before he moved to a different app.

    @AmDD I probably will eventually, but I don’t think its my place to run such a service. The community should provide these services for people like me. My project is coin-agnostic, I would like to add FTC, but there are many other coins out there that I could add, that already have a full API running that requires no extra work on my part.

    @priestc Sure, fair enough answer. If I had more experience with such things Id try to set it up for you. Hopefully someone can point you in the right direction.

    I will forward it to the TeamChat today 🙂

    There are so many areas and facilities the Blockchain can achieve it is impossible for any “Team” to get fully involved in them all. The FTC “core team” must concentrate on the Blockchain (feathercoind) and the wallet. They also maintain the mobile wallet, Github, Compiling bitcode for Windows and MAC, the forum and run core pools.

    However, as these are “open source” projects forum members and “staff” of FTC have been able to engendered and developed and deployed most of them, to some level.
    I’m pretty sure Bushstar (Peter Bushnell) did a lot of work porting over the API, you might try contacting him and offering a bounty to add the facilities you require, or help get it set up.

    Hey Guys.

    So I’m in the process of moving house and getting my internet back… 😞 sad times until then.

    I’ve already bought a 1 year contract with a VPS provider its a little CentOS 7 box all new and ready…it’s a small server but it’s good enough for this for now and i can increase bandwidth and things at a later date if needed.

    when i’m back online 100% I’ll be setting this up.

    I’m happy to hand over the details to any Team Members if they wanna help. PM Me.

    I have internet! Woop!!

    So I’ve compiled and installed feathercoind 0.9.3.1 and I’m using bitpays insight-api + frontend

    will be available at http://fsight.chain.tips when it’s ready.

    @Wellenreiter do you know if Bitcore works out of the box with feathercoin?

    From what I understand the insight api installs bitcore …I can see Bushstar did “feathercore” but I’m not sure how to deploy it.

    I’ve changed the right things so the api service reads the feathercoin blockchain. I’m just waiting for it to sync at the moment.

    Update: Tweaked the frontend slightly, removed Bitcoin branding, NodeJS app running in “production” mode, url paths working (/api/)

    To be done: Edit the API page and remove all bitcoin related hashes, replace with feathercoin values so the examples work… and maybe add HTTPS ?
