How To Deploy Blockchain Explorer For Development?

Currently the instructions are for Valet

git clone https://github.com/ArkEcosystem/explorer.ark.io.git
cd explorer.ark.io
composer install
yarn install

cp .env.example .env
php artisan key:generate
php artisan migrate:fresh
## You can run these commands to create a core database with fake data (change EXPLORER_DB_DATABASE to your actual database name))
# php artisan migrate --path=tests/migrations --database=explorer
# composer play
php artisan storage:link
yarn run watch

valet link explorer-ark-io

Important: You will need access to a Core Postgres database, or use the commented lines above to fill it with dummy data. The details can be specified in the .env file under EXPLORER_DB_*.


Before access the Explorer you’ll need to cache data that is accessed a lot. Run php artisan horizon and then php artisan explorer:cache-development-data and wait until it has finished.

Afterwards, you can navigate to explorer-ark-io.test in your browser to see it in action.
