Upgrades to the Wallet App and Blurtjs | Dev Update 2021-12-28

in blurtdevelopment •  5 months ago 

Hello, Blurters!

I've had a few days off and I spent a bit of time doing some dev work on Blurt, and this is an update to let you know what I've been up to.

Added Fees and Missed Blocks to Witness Page

I have added two rows to the witness page. One shows how many blocks have been missed by each witness. The other one, which is more important in my opinion, shows the fees that are voted for by each witness.

If you didn't already know, the fees are voted on by the witnesses, and the actual fees are the median of the fees voted by the top 20 witnesses. They vote for the account creation fee, the operation flat fee, and the bandwidth fee.

You can view the code changes here.

Added Count for Remaining Power Downs in Wallet App

If you look at the wallet page and you have a power down in progress, it now displays the number of remaining power downs.

You can view the code changes here.

Updated Blurtjs

This update is for developers who write software for Blurt in the Javascript language.

I have updated a lot of things.

Adding account posting or active authority now works correctly. It didn't work at all before.

I've also added the transaction ID in what gets returned when broadcasting a transaction. That way you can easily verify the status of a transaction after broadcasting it.

You can check the commits here if you're interested in knowing what changes I made.

That's All, Folks!

That's it for this quick update.

Until next time, I hope you all have a great one!

Vote for my witness!

I run a witness node on the Blurt blockchain and I would really appreciate your witness vote.

Hello @saboin,
i am new witness since few days.
Is there a way to see how many Blocks i have produced?

You can go to this webpage, then choose "producer reward" from the drop-down list, then press "boil". It will show you all the times you signed a block.

Great new updates. Happy to see how well Blurt is shaping up! Keep up the great work. Is there a roadmap of things you all want to acomplish with Blurt in 2022?

I haven't posted a roadmap yet, but I will put one together and post it.

Thanks for the suggestion!

Thanks for all your work developing new tools for Blurt.

We are happy to have you in blurt sir
Keep up the good works 🙌🙌🙏👏


hey @saboin It's really good to see new features in the wallet and other areas.

I have a small idea if you like. When we withdraw a delegation we do not see the amount of return until the delegation arrives. Just curious, whether we can add a text about the return date of the delegation in the wallet.

That is in the plans already. It's one of the first things I will do next. There will be a tab that shows expiring delegations with the return date. And someday there will also be a tab for incoming delegations. The functionality for incoming delegations needs to be added to Blurt nodes first, so that feature will come later. The expiring delegations, that I can do the next time I have some spare time to work on it.

yes, it will be very good. i hope you will done the work very soon

I am happy to be the number 101 voter of this post
Your update is always very exceptional even as a witness
I thank you for the dev works you are always putting in place to keep the platform rolling high.

The added countdown for power down is absolutely necessary so that we can know our worth and those farming the platform.

I am very optimistic about your future dev contributions
in blurt.
I will vote for your witness again and again if it were possible.
Thank you @saboin
You are a leader 🙌🙌🙌🙌

Thank you for this update and that you take the time for it. This is not a self-understanding, I am also curious what else is new.

Hello how good that every day it is growing more, not only in its monetary value ... But it has a team of developers that works to implement new features, this makes more users come ...

Hello @saboin, I'm impressed with all you've been upto and I enjoy the updates you bring on board.

Blurt will reach a favourable figure for all of us.

Thank you for your hard work to change the blurt.blog platform, hopefully we can build together this blurt.blog platform into a fun platform. I am proud to be able to join here.

It's really nice to see new features to wallet and for other cases.

I have a just small idea if your prefer. When we revoke a delegation we can't see returning amount until the delegation arrived. Just curious, whether we can add a text about delegation returning date in the wallet also.

Yes. That’s in the plans. We will add expiring delegations and also incoming delegations eventually. The expiring delegations will be added soon. The incoming delegations need to be added to the Blurt nodes first, so those will take longer before they are added to the frontend UI.

patiently waiting to see those developments.

Blurt to the Moon..........

I have updated a lot of things.

I believe we can see many awesome and competitive features in Blurt with no time with the engagement of such active witnesses. Good job

Thank you so much for your hard work to continue to make this platform impactful change. Of course I didn't go wrong with you along with the other top 20 witnesses. Congratulations on your achievement at the end of the year.

Thanks for the feedback. Do you know something about python APIs to do some analysis? I'm planning to create some dashboards, extra tools, etc.

For reading the chain, Beem works very well. For broadcasting transactions, it only works for a few operations. I have a fork of Beem on my GitHub that works for all operations on Blurt.

Thanks for suggestions. I will look the source code

Agaion some awesome steps forward for this amazing Chain, thx for your service for Blurt ... smiles

I've tried a lot to set up a Witness but I haven't been able to associate myself with it yet because I don't understand the details.

There is a channel on the discord blurt server titled #witness-boot-camp. There is also guides on how to set it up. Join the discord here:


Thank you for these updates saboin , i really liked the missed block and fees that is now shown with the witness name.
Also the remaining powerdown is also a good feature.

keep it up , i hope i could start learning blurtjs soon. Thank you 😊

Already supporting you , thank you once again.

I want to update the documentation eventually and make it very easy to understand even for beginners. I'll add some tutorials as well.

That will be really nice of you saboin , tutorials for beginners will be a great help for me and many other wanting to learn.

Also can you tell me if one can work on bkurt frontend if he/she do not have knowledge of back-end. I have searched on the web and saw that most of the courses are teaching blockhain web dev using solidity only.

Can we use solidity and do something for blurt ?

Thank you

You can simply fork condenser and start working on it.

Solidity is kind of backend code for ethereum compatible blockchain. Blurt Is a graphene blockchain and uses c

thanks for the update sir, good job 👍

Good work. Btw, can we have comment re-blurt option on blurt.blog?

I think it's possible to reblurt a comment, but it doesn't show up in your blog or your followers' feed. That's something that would have to be changed on the RPC nodes. I can ask about it, but it's not something that is within my ability to add. The blockchain nodes are programmed in C++, which I don't do.

On Hive (and Steem before that) the freezepeach account reblogs posts and comments when it can't counter downvotes effectively. The comments get reblogged but they don't show up anywhere. It's still possible to stream the blockchain to see those reblogs, but that's the only way.

Hi, dear how I became a witness, please tell me all process.

also we have #witness-boot-camp in the blurt official discord server where you can recieve extra help if needed.


Thanks so much for visit my comments and gave me a platform for help.

Bundle of thanks

You can find all the instructions here:

Thanks so much for that sir.
