Introducing Alchemy Build: The Most Powerful Tools for Blockchain Developers
July 8, 2020
Today we are excited to introduce Alchemy Build, our powerful suite of blockchain developer tools that helps you prototype, debug, and ship products faster.
Building great blockchain apps today is difficult due to a lack of fundamental developer tools. This can lead to longer debugging sessions, delayed release cycles, and customer outages. Based on hundreds of customer interviews, we estimate that blockchain developers currently spend 12 engineering hours per week on non-product related issues. If blockchain is truly meant to change the world, the industry simply can’t afford this.
Alchemy Build helps developers save countless engineering hours with tools for searching, filtering, and browsing all product activity in milliseconds. It also includes powerful prototyping tools with real-time feedback so you can quickly ship fixes to your customers. Like the rest of the Alchemy developer platform, it’s fast and simple to set up. No code, no configuration -- it works out of the box.
Alchemy Build consists of four tools:
Explorer: Instantly search through millions of historical requests to find specific bugs, performance bottlenecks, or patterns of errors.
Mempool Visualizer: View the real-time state of transactions in the mempool in order to identify delayed, stuck, or dropped transactions.
"Alchemy Build has become an indispensable tool for our development workflow. Both the sheer simplicity of being able to spin up new Apps in minutes, as well as being able to deep dive into requests to diagnose issues has saved us countless hours of time."
Josh Richardson, Founder Bamboo
Composer: Make JSON-RPC calls directly from the dashboard in order to prototype and fix failing requests or explore the behavior of new methods.
Debug Toolkit: Quickly scan recent requests and errors, along with a real-time query visualizer to help you debug faster than ever.
"As we roll out Microtick, a new product on our own blockchain, it's crucial that our attention is focused on the right areas. Alchemy Build helps us maintain that focus, thanks to extensive tooling that takes the hassle and guesswork out of crafting web3 infrastructure." Kent Barton, Head of Research and Development, ShapeShift
At Alchemy, we believe blockchain can power the next tectonic shift in technology, but not until developers have the right tools for the job. We want to give blockchain builders the high-performance tools they need to scale systems and delight customers. This commitment is why Alchemy is relied upon by millions of users and 70% of the top blockchain apps.
