BUIDL-Weekly: 16MAY22–22MAY22

CoinGecko Integration

A massive thanks to the CoinGecko team for getting integration over the line this week despite their existing workload and commitments! All of the Spartan Protocol pools now show up as markets on CoinGecko for users who are searching for information on listed assets or on the protocol itself of course.

There are still some details to finalise, after which the integration will be announced on our community socials, keep your eyes peeled for more info as it arises.

SynthVault Claim Drop | SPIP-105

If you missed out on the SPIP-105 discussions, get up to date via this article. TLDR: SynthVault harvest will reduce, so make sure you harvest before each drop!

The next 1% drop will occur next week, so please ensure you have performed a SynthVault harvest to receive the current 3% rate.

GitHub Activity — Spartan DApp

Migrate to newer React

  • Adjust eslint as required
  • Added in craco to inject in the Polyfills that no longer come with CRA
  • Update most dependencies (including a lot of breaking major updates)
  • Adjust all usage of react-router-dom to suit all the breaking changes from the two major-version bump-ups

Add Table-View

  • Added ‘sort’ icon to Icons component
  • Created a parent TableView component to house the table header, items, search and sorting functionality
  • The table rows are mapped into that as PoolTableItem components
  • Users who prefer to browse the DApp with more info can still choose to change the view back to tiled view with a less compact set of details available for each pool
  • A similar set of separate components were also created for the Synth items
  • Refactored the DOM conditional logic in src/containers/Pools/index.js

Added volume to PoolItem

  • Added the 24hr rolling volume figure to each pool item

Workaround for ‘Apple Zoom’

  • On DApp initial-load, check for whether it is an Apple device and disable the zoom feature accordingly

Workaround for mobile browser

  • Added some padding to the body to account for some mobile browsers hiding the bottom of the screen in some situations

Improve wallet connection experience

  • When connecting wallets, in some very edge cases instances, connecting would work but not quite… work. Resulting in maybe not seeing your assets until refreshing or not for some time.
  • Added a simple check for whether the wallet.account is available after wallet.activate and conditionally performed again if false

API issues -> hide pricing

  • With the CoinGecko public API having some troubles this week, there would have been some instances where things didn’t seem quite right in the DApp. ie. TVL showing as $0
  • Went through the DApp and added conditionals to not show anything that would appear skewed by a bad SPARTA price API call
