ErgoDEX technical update #1
(6 Dec 2021 — 13 Dec 2021)
You know that ErgoDex is an open and transparent project with an open-source code base. But keeping track of updates through repositories in GitHub is not very convenient. So we decided to keep a blog with weekly tech updates to keep everyone informed. Sometimes it can be difficult to understand, but, come on, these are technical updates, it has to be difficult.
So here’s what happened last week:
Updated issue with logo. Now it works as expected.
Updated global Form components (on review). Greatly improved performance and speed. Now the Form almost does not consume RAM.
Backend and Smart Contracts
Execution Bots (Cardano side)
Services Tracker and Executor were updated with wrapped Kafka integration. Also, Bots were successfully integrated with Cardano SDK.
SDK was successfully updated with Datum-keeper to enable a possibility for third party integrations.
Created a new auxiliary off-chain service, Datum-keeper.
Datum-keeper is a simple HTTP-API application which allows other apps to integrate within Cardano SDK. The main purpose of the Datum-keeper is to save the received data in PostgreSQL as pairs (DatumHash ➡️ Datum) for the possibility of further ensuring the search for the corresponding data
