Leto Update: August 2

🌐 Overview

The team has been energized by the community's feedback and guidance over the past few weeks! Thank you.

We are finishing up a huge push to launch the Leto dashboard service. Users will be able to log in, query the Leto analytics API, and leverage anonymous metrics to make better decisions.

Much more is on the way! Keep an eye out for more blog posts about the future of Leto.

πŸ“– Simplifying the developer experience

We took time to ensure our developer documentation makes it easy to get started. To use Leto, switch out the IPFS gateway used in your project for the Leto IPFS gateway. Once data is retrieved through the Leto IPFS gateway, anonymous analytics information is automatically added to our open database.

The Leto gateway address is:


Then when you are ready to query the analytics data you can use the example code below to query the Leto analytics API. Replace β€œcid” with as many IPFS CIDs as you would like.

curl --location --request POST 'https://api.leto.gg/analytics' \--header 'Content-Type: application/json' \--data-raw '{ "cids": ["cid", "cid"], "page": 1, "size": 5}'

And you’ll get back a response with the number of times each CID was accessed and when it was last accessed. See the request below and the responses highlighted in white:

🧰 Benchmarking IPFS Gateways

Work continues on the IPFS object analyzer. This is a really useful tool to benchmark the performance of different IPFS gateways when retrieving a specific CID(s). Although this is a work in progress, the tool is already giving us insight into improving IPFS retrieval performance by racing IPFS gateways. A lot more to come on this topic!

🌟 Working with Veritic.com

We are super excited to partner with Veritic.com as an IPFS analytics provider for their smart contract management system. Leto and Veritic are complementary tools that developers use to build awesome We3 projects.

πŸ—ΊοΈ What's Next?

We are moving full steam ahead to launch the Leto dashboard service. Then, work will begin on adding more functionality and tooling. Contact us if you are interested to learn more!

Keep an eye out for more helpful Leto examples in our dev docs.
