Akash Deploy UI Challenge - Akashlytics

Hello! I’m the co-creator of akashlytics.com and proud to announce that we will be participating in this hackathon by making a deploy ui.

The whole process of creating/hosting a web app on akash inspired me and my friend to create a fully dependency free desktop app that can be installed on windows/mac/linux in a few clicks and be able to do all the steps required to deploy in the same app, so create/import a wallet, fund the wallet, create a certificate, create a deployment, accept a bid to create a lease and finally, send the manifest.

So technically, we’re not using the cli since it’s not compatible with Windows. We basically coded our own wallet interfaces for transactions and ported some of the cli’s go code to javascript to support all the operations. Since it’s a desktop app, the user is in complete control of it’s certificate and most importantly, it’s private key or mnemonic.

The main goals are to make it:

  • Easy to use
    • No dependencies required, ie: no docker or cli needed to be installed.
    • Create or import an existing wallet, Keplr like.
  • Secure
    • Private key and certificate stored locally.
  • Accessible
    • Cross platform

Funny enough, we had the ambition to finish a mvp by the start of this hackathon so that people could start using it, but we’re not quite there yet, as this result required a lot of research and development. It’s an amazing coincidence and we’re more than happy to compete for that prize!

P.S. the repo is still private for now as it is not open-source friendly yet.

@colin.lowenberg Thanks, sure will do!

Quick update on the project: We are finalizing on our mvp, doing testing making sure it works properly and handles some edges cases. We will soon start closed beta testing with some individuals. I plan on making a video demo or something like that for everyone to see what’s going on!

Here’s a little sneak peak… :wink:

Thank you! Sure I will send you a link to our discord server.

As a matter of fact, Akashlytics here it is! If someone wants to take place in the upcoming beta version of the deploy tool, this is there I will be announcing new versions and stuff! All are welcome! :slight_smile:

Just released a new page Akashlytics to promote the deploy ui. You can download it and test it out! Still a lot of stuff to do, but glad to share it now!

Just submitted our work for the hackathon Akash Deploy UI Challenge | ovrclk Funded Issue Detail | Gitcoin | Gitcoin!

We spent quite a lot of time in the past month and a half to make this happen, I hope you all find it useful for Akash’s journey to mass adoption!

We just changed the visibility of the github, so you can take a look and give us your feedback. GitHub - Akashlytics/akashlytics-deploy: Desktop app to easily deploy on the Akash Network.

Thanks all!
