The insight chart can be found at Explorer  stats for last quarter .

Current Plans

  • Apply ACL rule of a network to Hyperledger Explorer user management
  • Unifying 2 platforms (Fabric/Iroha) support the master branch
  • Add new peer metrics view based on the information collected via Prometheus
  • Continue on bug fixes, help community in configuring HLExplorer and troubleshooting
  • Integrate the additional features mentioned in the “Contributor Diversity” section into Explorer

Maintainer Diversity

We’ve had a few spot contributors added.  No new maintainers were added. We really need the community to come forward and contribute.

Please find here the maintainers list.  https://github.com/hyperledger/blockchain-explorer/blob/master/MAINTAINERS.md

Contributor Diversity

The current main contributors are from DTCC and Fujitsu. We have 8 unique contributors on Github and 9 unique reporters on JIRA in this quarter.

We had a session in Blockchain Tech Fest 2020 to present the project overview and project roadmap to the potential users and contributors. We really appreciated  David Boswell and  Ry Jones introducing this opportunity to us and also thanks so much to all in Hyperledger India Chapter, Hyperledger Africa Chapter, and Hyperledger Sweden who organized this wonderful event.

And we had some proposals for Hyperledger Explorer as below:

  • New contributions
  • EasyDoser
  • This is the outcome of one of the Hyperledger Internship programs. The integration of this feature into Explorer will offer more visibility of the network to users.
  • Ease endorsement operations for Hyperledger based products (EasyDoser)
  • LedgerDataRefiner
  • Fujitsu Lab. has proposed integrating their open-sourced ledger data analytics tool into Explorer. We have started the discussion on how to proceed with this contribution.
  •   https://github.com/FujitsuLaboratories/Ledger-Data-Refiner
  • WIP contributions
  • minifab
  • This project is offering Hyperledger Explorer support as one of their features and we think it will be a good mutual reference. 
  • hyperledger-explorer-made-easy
  • This is a kind of utility tool for the easy setup of Hyperledger Explorer. After evaluating this tool and having a consensus for merging it into the Explorer repo within the team, we might get it included in Explorer as one of the official features.

"We really need the community to come forward and contribute"
What is a good starting point for new contributors? Can we have a blog written about the plans/architecture? Maybe come and present it to the TSC, we can publish about this session to larger audience.
