Hello world! we are happy to announce that
TzKT is updated to version 1.4 and this release brings a lot of toasty features for Tezos
adventurers, and now we want to highlight some of its improvements. Here we go! First, we
optimized a smart-contract data operated via API and made it more convenient. Smart contracts
in Tezos are very flexible and therefore pretty hard to master. Thus we have taken a big
step toward making it more user-friendly firstly by normalizing JSON parameters and now a
response like this can be turned into this. And also we added a query parameter to configure it
as you wish. And there's more – you can filter any transaction by a specific parameter which makes
your request even more flexible and comfortable. A similar improvement was made with the
JSON storage – new API endpoints allow you to access storage in various formats.
Moreover, you can use path parameter to get specific fields from the storage, which
allows you to save your time and resources In addition, you can now extract contact
storage value in any time in the past and easily get any contact storage history.
The next big thing released is a WebSocket API which allows you to subscribe to real-time
Previously if some were spamming the rest API every second checking for new
data then now by using WebSocket you can receive the latest data as soon as it appears
on the node and a TzKT indexer processes it. At the moment we started with a very basic set of
subscriptions: new head, new block, new operation, and new account operation. In the near future, we
will add more events and subscriptions with more data so if you have any feature request
this is the best time to apply for them in addition, we provide some optimizations
upgraded core dependencies migrated to .NET 5 and to PostgreSQL 13 instead of
12. More about this in the description. Conclusion. The new update brings meaningful
improvements that makes TzKT even more advanced Tezos blockchain indexer and you will definitely
see more features in the future, so stay tuned. And yeah: TzKT is community driving
project that is fully open-source and free for everyone and for any use.
Many thanks to all our friends and the entirety Tezos community for help with improving
You are breathtaking! See ya!.
