Hello, i’m trying to build a Zcash explorer (for a school project) and running it locally. My machine is a 2014 laptop (i54200, 8GB ram, no dedicated graphic card) running Ubuntu 18.04 and I have already a working zcashd synchroned.
I found out that exists an open-source solution called iquidus (https://github.com/iquidus/explorer), written in node.js and based on mongodb, which should work for any blockchain based coin.
The installation and configuration process proceeded without big problems, but the syncing of the explorer is very slow, i still am around block 17000 after about two days of running (and the total block height is like 530k+, so…).
Does anybody know if this is normal? Is iquidus a decent solution or are there better alternatives?
Thank you and sorry for my english
