Cakeshop is a set of tools and APIs for working with Ethereum, packaged as a Java web application archive (WAR) that gets you up and running quickly.

Out of the box you get:

  • Blockchain explorer - View transactions, blocks, and contracts, and see historical contract state at a point in time.
  • Node info - View the overall status of your network.
  • Peer management - Discover, add, and remove peers.
  • Enhanced permissions UI - Manage enhanced network permissioning.
  • Solidity sandbox - Develop, compile, deploy, and interact with Solidity smart contracts.
  • Contract registry - Keep track of deployed contracts and their code, interfaces, and state.

You can access Cakeshop when using the Quorum Developer Quickstart, with Spring Boot, or with Docker.

To view Cakeshop with your GoQuorum Quickstart network:

  1. Start the Quorum Developer Quickstart with GoQuorum, selecting default monitoring.
  2. Open the Cakeshop UI at http://localhost:8999.


The Quorum Developer Quickstart tutorial demonstrates how to perform transactions directly using the Cakeshop UI.
