Announcing SteemLogs.Info project on Utopian.io! Help us mine the blockchain for your great content!

9개월 전


I, like many of you, have spent a lot of time and effort publishing on the STEEM blockchain, in fact more than on any other platform in my entire life. But while there are many tools to see different flows of information, I have yet to find a great, comprehensive tool for different ways of mining the STEEM chain. The long term goal of SteemLogs is to become the go-to search engine multi-tool for STEEM.

Starting out, we have our filterable backlinks generator, good for making markup ready link lists. We also have our image backlinks generator, for easier use of images you have already uploaded. Along with these and other, more niche tools like the selfie-album generator, we have an incredibly quantity of tools in mind to add to STEEMLOGS.INFO - and we need your help!

 



Project History and future:


The history of this tool is long, but this is the start of a Brand New story for STEEMLOGS.INFO. As we will show you in this post, we have a roadmap to success which allows us to grow individual tools, or modules. Each module can be improved and added to independently, which will permit us to build a repository of the most useful mining tools for the STEEM blockchain.

By using a modular design, we can minimize complexity and downtime, as well as develop on multiple fronts. We also have many plans for community interaction with our tool, and we aim to be the premier search engine designed to mine content on the steem blockchain.

What is 'mining' content?

Let's stop here and delve a little deeper into what we mean by mining content. We have tons of specific tools in mind, but the general principle is transforming the content on the STEEM blockchain in usable ways.

When we started this tool with the Back Links generator, there was no 'Hide Resteem' button on the steemit interface, so finding your old blogs was a marathon of scrolling. Even then, when successfully finding them, there were half a dozen clicks necessary for each post, entering, copying the url, pasting, copying the title, pasting, adding brackets and parenthesis, and going back to the whole list. And when you went back to the list, all the old posts you had spent so much time scrolling and loading were gone, requiring you to start all over!

We recognize the immense possibilities available with STEEM, but if we are going to be able to truly use our forever content, we need a better way to access, search and visualize our old data.

 

Tiered task-list:


 
Tier 1: Upgrade to Beem


The most important task we have right now is to transition from a deprecated version of steempy to the beem libraries. We are looking for help from a python developer that can help us upgrade what we already have before starting to increase functionality.

There are two principle tasks here, the first of which is the Backlinks Generator's python call, the second of which is the Easy Image Backlinker's python call.

Ideally we would like to work with a python developer who is open and easy going, able to explain what is being done to someone who is just starting to read the beempy documentation.

Tier 2: Aesthetics and Design

After completing the first tier, we will begin working through the second tier task-list which will include help with CSS, a new banner, and the creation and digitization of the logo for the site. In this stage we will focus on making the UI/UX more friendly with a focus on clean, outstanding design.

This phase will have in mind principles such as 'first impression', 'easy of use' and 'even my four year old can use it'. More advanced tools will be available behind tabbed organization while more commonly used tools will be pushed to the front.

 

Tier 3: New features, adding a database, community outreach and more!

 

Later, we will happily open up tasks for new tools on our list, as well as open up a forum for suggestions, as we are eager to make this the most useful tool for mining content on the STEEM blockchain, for ALL users.

While adding features from our list will take priority to start, we believe that the community participation and outreach will snowball into becoming the main driver behind site innovation. Continuing with our modular approach, we anticipate developing niche tools for many different groups across the broad spectrum of use cases on the STEEM blockchain.

One such example could be IPFS node analysis for dtube videos. An easy tool where a user could put their user name in and get returned a filtered list of their dtube videos, along with status (available or unavailable) and a list of other pertinent information. This would be useful to some users, but not all, and could integrate with programs such as @onelovedtube's paid service.

Thank you for your review, @tykee! Keep up the good work!

Thank you for sharing information about your project. The project looks cool. I tried some commands, and I like the result. Aside from the initial purpose to filter out post, I love the information about the precise time and date an account was created.

I appreciate the work done, and I’d love to see more improvement on the project as explained in the post. The project needs more touches, and you could get like-minded guys within the Utopian community. To be on a faster track, you could use the Utopian task-request category to invite developers to your project.

Again, I appreciate the information, and I wish you success on the project!

Your contribution has been evaluated according to Utopian policies and guidelines, as well as a predefined set of questions pertaining to the category.

Thank you for recommending the Task-Request category! That will be my next stop to find someone who can help me with the beem implementation :) I will check up on the guideline via the link you left.

Hi @tykee

I fully agree. This tool has some potential.

Just took a quick spin around @steemlogs and was wondering if there is a list of the tags that are searchable. Photography worked ok but some others that I tried return nil. e.g. steem, life, colorchallenge etc

It should be quite simple to add the full list of tags to the existing table.

Is my above suggestion on the roadmap?

I like what I've seen so far.

·

Yes sir! Tag search is a little funky because of the deprecated steempy libraries, but should work just fine soon as we bring everything up to date. This is the next thing on the roadmap, before adding new features.

Thanks for giving it a spin!

Dear @steemlogs

I was just wondering what "mining" content means and thank you for your great explanation.

there was no 'Hide Resteem' button on the steemit interface, so finding your old blogs was a marathon of scrolling.

Very true. The problem with "hide resteem" is that I need to click on it every time I want to visit some profile.

I could never understand why people like to resteem so much. It's not like anyone really ever click on those resteemed posts. If someone does end up on your profile then most likely such a person is interested with your content and your content only.

Based on my experience resteeming doesnt really help much.

Ideally we would like to work with a python developer who is open and easy going, able to explain what is being done to someone who is just starting to read the beempy documentation.

Did you find anyone yet? It may be quite difficult task. I'm assuming that you don't have any budget to pay for this person work? Just curious.

How did you build steemlogs.info so far? Also in phyton?

Your post has been recommended by @ecoinstant. Thx buddy. Gooc luck to you and @jackmiller

Thanks for stopping by Piotr! A very comprehensive comment, which I will take in parts.

Resteem - I think it does serve a purpose, but is a tricky business. I have found things I wouldn't have because people I follow resteemed. I also 'skip over' a lot of resteems.

Without revealing too much of our specific plans, I mean 'mining' in the sense of 'data mining' and not 'blockchain mining'. Finding, searching, using and visualizing your and other's data on the steem blockchain (without scrolling for hours).

The project is built in python, I am learning and I have had help from other developers, principally @kit.andres to start and now looking for another one. I don't think it is so hard, I'll keep working myself but I am very slow, and I have every confidence we will find just the right person to help.

Don't assume too much, and we also have the power of utopian behind us :)

Thank you again for your valuable comment!
