In Bitcoin there is a library named Bitcore. It helps abstract away a number of details, including using direct RPC commands. Is there something like Bitcore for Ethereum? Or do I need to use JSON-RPC?

  • It's unclear what you are asking. Could you explain which bitcore functionality are you missing? In addition, try to ask one question per thread. Create a new question for the open source blockchain explorer. – Afr Mar 3 '16 at 9:09
  • I'm editing the question and please create a new question for the explorer as suggested by 5chdn. – eth Mar 6 '16 at 1:32

Here are libraries you may find helpful:

https://github.com/ethereum/web3.js - for DApp development so you don't have to use JSON-RPC directly

https://github.com/ethereum/ethereumjs-lib - Bitcore-like Javascript library for Ethereum

https://github.com/ethereum/pyethereum - Bitcore-like Python library for Ethereum

  • Do these allow you to scan the full blockchain? – Shamoon May 8 '18 at 15:01
  • @Shamoon They can help you get data from the full blockchain if you use them on a synced Ethereum node. – eth May 20 '18 at 10:01
