The XRP community and the developers in the ecosystem have been persistent to increase the viability of XRP and in turn the XRP Ledger. In the latest series of developments, Dev Null Productions, a software production agency, released XRBP, an interface that allows easy access to the XRP Ledger.
The organization stated that the tool enables a seamless connection with Rippled servers while giving users the option to read and write data from and into the XRP Ledger. Rippled servers are those server softwares that powers the XRP Ledger. Dev Null Productions announced on their official blog post:
“Dev Null Productions is pleased to announce the general availability of XRBP a library aimed at providing an accessible, fault-tolerant interface to the XRP ledger. XRBP allows the developer to read and write data to/from the XRP network in real time, synchronizing ledger data including accounts, transactions, objects, and more. Data is presented via both synchronous and asynchronous mechanisms with multiple-connection load balancing and fault tolerance baked in behind the scenes.”
The XRP Ruby interface’s code includes an XRBP library and a new web socket connection to s1.riiplecom. The platform keeps interchangeability and customizations as its core ideology which resulted in plugins that offer multiple features. The existing plugins provide users the ability to automatically timeout inactive connections and reestablish the link between broken servers. Other features include:
“Allowing the user to register custom data parsers to transform received data
Allowing the user to register custom data parsers to transform received data.”
The news of the XRBP launch was widely accepted by the XRP community with many users on Twitter congratulating the Dev Null team.
XRP Scan, a Twitter handle commented:
“This is great work, more language bindings are awesome.”
To this, Dev Null responded:
“Agreed, we’re quickly discovering the XRP ledger is a great language-agnostic distributed DB. All you need is a websocket client (really just tcp/ip support as the websocket protocol isn’t that complicated ontop of that) and you can read and write data to/from the ledger!”
The XRP Ledger has received other positive news over the past week as reports showed that the Ledger recorded a 3x spike in the number of ledgers. On March 22, the number of ledgers spiked from an average of 23,000 to a massive 75,000. Some users in the community speculated that the surge would have occurred due to the Cobalt update going live in the ecosystem.
