Somebody say we can get all the blocks through rpc, then we can get all the actions.

But I found that in the block information, there're no inline actions, so many inline actions will lose, right?

You can get the inline actions in get_actions RPC History API endpoint or inside the details of a transaction using also the RPC API get_transaction.

So that's exactly what I'm doing in that eos-node-watcher, I filter all the transactions relevant to my dapp and call get_transaction for them. The thing is that you could just shortcut it by running get_actions endpoint.

But after that if you want real-time integration I think you need to watch block by block indeed.

  • since the get_transaction is history api, we must store all history data to memory(use --filter-on=*), right?

  • if you need all of the transactions, contracts etc yes. otherwise you could just filter your dapp transactions Commented Jul 16, 2018 at 11:32
  • so there're no other way to get all the transactions except that use history plugin with filter-on = *, right? Even if we just want to get some transactions, we still need use the history plugin, because the transaction details is in the history.
