    Hey HZuniverse!

    I have coded a useful extension of the existing block explorer;
    now there is one page for each asset, showing the issuance description, etc.

    So every asset issuer can (soon) link to a page which is showing the most essential information about his baby.

    Please pull upstream into the existing B.E. code, and put online.
    Happy to answer any questions.

    More info here, 4 postings:

    and I made a copy-for-eternity in my own AltSheets thread:

    Happy to contribute!
    your
    AltSheets Dev :-)

    Nice work AltsheetsDev on the HZ Asset detail page, a really needed feature in the Horizon Explorer which hopefully the HZ Dev Team will see fit to expose in the Asset Listing.

    With that vote of confidence (perhaps coupled with some contributions for your efforts) it would be great to see this expanded to incorporate trades and eventually the order book (as exists in mynxtinfo or nxtexplorer).

    However I can see Cryptoclub’s point in BCT that incorporating centrally maintained ratings could get tricky (vs the current trusted list) so perhaps an opportunity exists for an HZ spin on the nxtinspect asset.

    > Nice work AltsheetsDev on the HZ Asset detail page
    Thanks a lot mavigro.

    It really really helps to read such sentences!

    > a really needed feature in the Horizon Explorer
    It was exciting to build, PHP is new to me. And then quite a challenge, to find through other people’s sourcecode. Myself I always wanted to link from my asset homepage to a block explorer page about my asset. Now it exists. Done! :-)

    > to incorporate trades and eventually the order book
    You can actually already study them – inside the wallet.
    But I see your point, there is space for plenty of useful sites and functions in and around the HZ ecosystem.

    > incorporating centrally maintained ratings could get tricky
    For sure. Especially in “gray” cases where it is not 100% clear.

    Perhaps only the “revoked” signal should survive? Because if the asset issuer himself is of that opinion, there might be little doubts left? But all that is “politics” – I just provided code that allows for such warnings now.

    And anyways, my whole “warnings” function can also be ignored completely, by using this “empty” assetwarnings.xml file: https://github.com/altsheets/hz-blockexplorer/blob/master/data/assetwarnings.xml.empty instead.
    Then no warnings will be shown. But if at a later moment in time, the situation gets evaluated differently, switching it on is no problem, too.

    When I coded the new asset.phtml page, I remembered that discussion with Cyrano that he wanted his asset blacklisted (see my “revoke” example), and came up with this solution. And in the hours before, I had learnt how to use XML in PHP – so it was a good opportunity to try it out immediately.

    Let’s see what the “real” coders say about my newbie code.

    Thanks again! Sunny greetings – enjoy your day!

    I think I am ready.

    Did a lot of additional changes:
    https://github.com/pharesim/hz-blockexplorer/pull/1#issuecomment-118088106

    including a hyperlink back to this discussion thread here, in readmeAssets.md
    https://github.com/altsheets/hz-blockexplorer/blob/master/assetsReadme.md
    for collecting opinions on the (now simplifed!) asset-warnings function.

    Yiehah!
