Block.One Innovation Hub EOSIO Labs Releases New EOSIO Explorer for dApp Developer Benefits
EOSIO Labs, the lead developer of EOS blockchain announced the launch of the EOSIO Block Explorer earlier this week. The platform is a full web application that allows the developers (both smart contract and front end developers) to launch their smart contract development and further connect and communicate with the EOS blockchain in a local development platform.
EOSIO Explorer aims at providing decentralized apps (dApps) developers an efficient way to create their local development environment to develop their apps on the blockchain. The web based graphical interface provides a platform for users to follow up on the apps during their developmental process.
The EOSIO Explorer aims to improve interaction and monitoring of the EOS blockchain and the applications created on it. According to the announcement by EOSIO Labs, the platform will provide users with a visual representation of the network instead of the current command line based toolchain. The platform is set to be more user-friendly and accessible for the naïve developers and experts as well as using the platform.
The announcement further explains the benefits of the EOSIO Explorer assuring the developers the platform is efficient and easy to use. The developers using the platform will be able to create their development accounts and assign public and private keys pairs, settle transactions and resend unauthorized transactions and further provide a graphical representation of the smart contract development process.
The explorer reduces the total app development time and allows development teams to work on a single project through the local single-node test net. Furthermore, the EOSIO explorer has two major features for developers and users of the platform – interaction and inspection with/of the EOSIO blockchain.
The Major Features of the EOSIO Block Explorer
The interaction feature allows users to test and verify any accounts connected and interacting with the dApp. Developers on the platform are able to edit, create and import any development accounts across the platform using the interactive feature. The developers bootstrap the smart contracts on the platform and generated ABIs, assign the accounts with public and private keys and settle the smart contracts.

The inspection feature of the EOSIO Explorer allows developers of dApps on the EOS blockchain to review changes and updates that occur within the blockchain. Furthermore, developers can view the transaction information, block details and other account details on any blockchain connected on the blockchain.
This feature is quite similar to the other blockchain explorers on the web today.

The developments on EOS blockchain boost the probability of EOS becoming the top smart contract platform in the world and eclipsing Ethereum in the process. The EOSIO Explorer is a gateway for developers to freely interact with the dApps and monitor the development
