[Hyperledger Project TSC] Hyperledger Explorer Proposal
Konrad Pabjan <konradpabjan@...>
I've recently developed a Hyperledger Explorer UI that allows for information to be quickly queried from the blockchain and presented in a quick and easy to use manner. Similar to Bitcoin or other crypto-currency explorer's (see https://live.blockcypher.com/btc/ or https://blockchain.info/ ), this explorer utilizes the existing gRPC APIs to get recent block, transaction, and network information and view detailed information regarding the current state of the blockchain. An Explorer like this is essential for any ledger and would allow current state information to be easily retrieved and examined. This would also spark interest outside of the development community by giving potential users a glimpse of how Hyperledger works. Long term this explorer could be greatly expanded upon to include more detailed information but for an initial 1.0 release I think it's ready.
The existing code is on my repo:
Long term maintenance and work would be taken over by Satheesh Kathamuthu (skathmuthu@...).
I will gladly answer any questions/concerns during the call on Thursday. I have been having some issues with screen sharing lately so please take a look at the video for a demo of the explorer in action.

This is neat, thanks. Would you please complete a HIP (Hyperledger Improvement Proposal 
and add it to the wiki . Thanks! I've asked Todd to add to this week's agenda.
