Dune Analytics version 2 is now live!
Today we are beyond excited to open a whole new chapter for on-chain data broadly and Dune Analytics specifically! Our team of four (we’re hiring!) started on a hugely ambitious project at the beginning of this year: to rebuild the Dune Analytics experience from the ground up. And today, less than a quarter later, you can enjoy a whole new Dune as v2 is now live!
The long story short is:
- Automatic and reliable query and dashboard refreshing
- A unified, simpler and prettier Dune experience
- A much faster application overall
- A whole range of other upgrades
You don’t need to do anything to upgrade, and your queries and dashboards will work seamlessly in Dune v2.
Let’s break it down.
Automatic and reliable query and dashboard refreshing
Dune has grown like crazy for many many months now, and eventually Dune v1 simply could not cope with the insane demand we saw for refreshing queries and dashboards. With Dune v2 we’ve rebuilt our entire query execution and queuing system to better handle an ever-increasing demand for running queries.
For you as a user this means that you no longer need to doubt if query results are up to date!
Dune will now automatically refresh queries when they are viewed. Query creators don’t need to worry about setting a refresh schedule either. Whenever a user looks at a query with stale results, Dune will automatically refresh under the hood. You can find more details on how this works in our docs.
A unified, simpler and prettier Dune
Finding the right data tables, creating queries and visualising your results has never been easier! We’ve redesigned the entire query and dashboard editor experience. Improvements include:
- The whole Dune experience now lives on the duneanalytics.com domain and there’s no “go to app”
- All charts have gotten a complete makeover
- Cleaner query editor overall
- Simply scroll down to see, add and edit visualisations of your query results
- Queries save on the fly when you run them
- The dashboard editor is more flexible and way faster to work with
You can find more details in our docs.
A super fast experience
The Dune application is now many times faster than it was before.
That’s it, that’s the paragraph.
Query parameters - what is probably Dune’s most underrated feature has gotten a major upgrade. It’s now super easy to filter any query or dashboard for a token, address or anything, really. Meaning you can turn your queries and dashboards into interactive apps for on-chain data.
See content without having to log in - simply copy and share your query or dashboard link! The exception is for paid users that make their content private, more details on our pricing page.
