Making technology easier to use has been my obsession for many years now, and this is why Pagoda resonates so much with me.
One of the most important "eaves" of Pagoda console is the alerts section, which allows non-technical users to set up simple alerts with a if-this-then-that approach. Altho the simplicity is great, the very moment the user needs a bit of business logic to decide if a notification is due or not, the system falls short.
Don't give me wrong, Pagoda console is amazing as it is, but I think I found a way to make it even better while keeping intact the Pagoda vision of being the easiest Web3 Startup Platform.
What it does
It allows users to create flows, which are small applications created using visual scripting, that work by dragging and dropping blocks that describe the application in terms that make sense for humans, so even non-technical people can develop complex logic. Flows are connected to NEAR accounts/contracts, and when an interaction with a contract happens, the flow is executed and the user's logic determines if a notification is due or not.
Notification then can be funnel into emails, webhooks or Telegram:
With NEAR Smart Events you can do all of this and much more without writing a single line of code:
- Notify by email your compliance team when contract X receives a deposit over 1000$?
- Send a telegram message every Friday at 9:00 AM with contract X balance to Bob from accounting?
- Create a ticket on Salesforce using a webhook when the Gas fees from contract X method Y are getting too high?
How we built it
The whole service runs in 2 NodeJS processes (that can scale horizontally). If you want to get more into the technical details, please take a look at the https://github.com/domingosl/nse
Open source and embeddable
NSE is and uses only MIT license open source libraries, and from the gecko is designed to be easily embeddable. It does not depend on any frontend framework, and the backend engine is very light.
What's next for NEAR Smart Events
- On chain writers blocks: By storing the private key, user can actually not only read and react to on-chain events but also write to it.
- Documentation and Tutorials
- Research into other use cases that might need new types of blocks
