Summary: Galactic Vision is a 3D explorer for the Stellar network.
Goals: We want to fully build out our website to represent all aspects of the Stellar network. Our goal is to build a unique application for the community to help better understand the structure and activity of the network.
Galactic Vision is an in browser 3D application that currently features two scenes:
The activity explorer shows live activity occurring on the network. Network activity can either be observed from a glance, or interacted with to get more information. The current setup involves a space station representing the stellar network as the centerpiece. As data comes in, planets are spawned around the space station to represent accounts. Particles are emitted from the planets to represent assets. The particles travel to the space station to be processed, then are directed to the destination planet to finish the operation.
Each planet is able to be clicked on to enter account view. This allows the user to explore the balances and recent history of the account.
Quorum Explorer is a visualization of quorum sets. It displays a globe with official validator node locations and creates links between them to represent each nodes quorum set. The user can isolate each node to see its connections and learn more specific information about it. When viewing a node, green links represent nodes that the current node trusts, and cyan links represent nodes that trust the current node. The sidebar is sorted by trust index. The more nodes trust a specific node, the higher its trust index. There are three ways to navigate to nodes. You can either use the sidebar navigation on the left, click the pins the globe, or use the node info sidebar on the right to travel to related nodes. The data is provided by StellarBeat.
Stellar Consensus Protocol Graphical Tutorial
An interactive tutorial that shows how the Stellar Consensus Protocol works in 3D. This will be based on the “Adventures in Galactic Consensus” Stellar web comic.
Decentralized Exchange Viewer
To improve upon the current activity explorer, a specialized exchange activity viewer will be implemented. This will allow users to view the live exchange activity of each asset as well as various statistics.
Network Growth Time Lapse
An intergalactic look at how the stellar universe has expanded since its big bang. Users can watch the growth of multiple aspects of the network over time such as accounts, transactions, assets, lumen distribution, ledger close times.
Past transactions in the account viewer will be able to be clicked on to view the transaction in 3D while showing additional stats pertaining to it.
Mobile Friendly Design
The current app is designed around viewing on a PC/Laptop. We will create a mobile friendly layout for users on the go.
To show our commitment to the project, we have created some stretch goals for the SCF Galactic Talk phase. When these goals are met, development will begin immediately. Stretch goals for this phase are as follows:
[X] 5 likes: Relaunch planetary quorum explorer
[ ] 10 likes: Upgraded space station
[ ] 15 likes: Home page
[ ] 20 likes: Unique planet per account address (search function)
[ ] 25 likes: Adjust planet/particle size to reflect the transaction size
