Hive Engine net work status API : Get the health of Hive-Engine nodes
Hello everyone ! This week-end, I've made a small project which can help every HIVE project or token developer. It's not a big thing but it can be helpful. This one is the latest addition to HiveLive galaxy. Ladies & gentlemen, please welcome the Hive-Engine Network status.
This tool is a small API for developer. I will check all the Hive-Engine nodes and returns the list, sorted by ping, of every node (with some data). It's really useful to improve the experience of your project.
It can allow you or your users to switch to the best Hive-Engine API node. No more bugs or freezes from the API node you use, just get the best node from Hive-Engine Network status and execute your query on the node.
At this time, there is two endpoint to use:
/allto bring the list sorted by ping (the first the fastest)
/bestbring only the fastest node
By using them, you'll have a JSON response with, per node:
- url: link of the node
- name: hostname of the node
- online: online status
- ping: ping of the node, in ms
- version: version of Hive-Engine running on node
- nodeType: full or light
- chain: what chain is executed by the node (mainnet or testnet)
Easy, isn't it? I choose to bring only easy and fast way to improve any project which use Hive-Engine.
It's quite good for a "week-end project". But on my discord server, after talking about that, some users have plenty of ideas:
- Scan the Hive nodes
- Add more tests
- Endpoints with data, or not
- Many more...
What do you think about Hive-Engine Network status ? IF you know some developers who have some problems with Hive-Engine nodes, just talk with them about my project :)
