TYMLEZ Explorer

This article describes how you can use the TYMLEZ Explorer to visualize your blockchain activity.


The TYMLEZ Explorer is a visual user interface (UI) that enables you to see all blockchain activity of a specified node. 

You can use the TYMLEZ Explorer to search for transactions, blocks, or assets that have been posted to the blockchain. 


You need to have administrator access in order to use the TYMLEZ Explorer.

For blocks, assets, or transactions to appear, execute a sample application or smart contract.

Use a Docker container

Using a terminal session, download and execute the Docker SDK container with the TYMLEZ Explorer, specifying the ports:

docker run -t -i --rm \
-p 8080:8080 \
--name tymlez-explorer \
registry.tymlez.com/sdk/ng-rt-tymlez-explorer:V3.2_production \

Within the container, navigate to the directory ng-rt-tymlez-explorer:

cd ng-rt-tymlez-explorer

Start the container:

npm start

In a new browser window, navigate to the URL http://localhost:8080/. 

In the login screen, enter the IP and port (without HTTP or HTTPS protocol) of the desired instance in the server field,

Note that admin credentials are required for accessing the TYMLEZ Explorer:

After logging in, you will see the TYMLEZ explorer.

Run some sample applications

Use your Docker container or a terminal session to run a sample application.

After it has been executed, you will see the blocks, transactions, and assets involved with this sample application.

As an example, run the track and trace sample application, ensuring that the prerequisites, including getting an app key, have already been carried out: 

node ng-rt-digitalAsset-sdk-samples/examples/usecases/track_and_trace.js

Run a smart contract

In addition, you can also run a smart contract to see the blocks, transactions and assets:

tymlez-sc publish --templateName=SC_HelloWorld_Part1 Hello

Check the TYMLEZ Explorer

At first, the blocks and transactions will not be displayed.

For example, to view all assets on the blockchain, navigate to the Type dropdown bar, and select All assets:

The Explorer will then list all the assets that were created in the transactions of the sample application:

You can use filter the results by using the other dropdown menus, such as Ascending/Descending, From/to, Offset, Limit.

As well, you can also see all the transactions that have been executed, accompanied by the block information, timestamp, asset with asset ID, owner information as well as the total transaction amount.
