Releasing MVP transaction editor webapp

Certainly, this project has taken way too long for delivery. I had to reconsider its design many times. It went from an ambitious self-sovereign goal of hosting all infrastructure to leveraging your current web wallet for all your interactions with the blockchain. Today with many wallet options, it seems a better choice and I can focus on my particular goal.

TL;DR: The editor is finally out, it has still many rough edges but you can try it with your favorite wallet. Find the link in this post or from the project page.

Releasing documentation ouroboros-network local state query

Ever wondered how to communicate directly to your Cardano node? Where you bound to the cardano-cli? Did you wrap it around your preferred language? Now I have a new way. Talk directly to the node. The node follows a network specification on how it communicates to other nodes and clients. You can implement that specification and talk directly to the node. I have done it, and documented the effort along the process.

Showcase State management

I have been silent for a while, publishing progress reports and demos is not as fun as programming and debugging. I released the latest update of cardano.el , which now uses an SQLite database to manage state. It is a massive increase in complexity, but it enables wallet like features. It keeps track of key files, script files and manages addresses. More over it now has an optional integration to Cardano-Wallet, the backend for Daedalus.
