  /api/addr/[:addr]/utxo[?noCache=1]

Sample return:

[
    {
      address: "n2PuaAguxZqLddRbTnAoAuwKYgN2w2hZk7",
      txid: "dbfdc2a0d22a8282c4e7be0452d595695f3a39173bed4f48e590877382b112fc",
      vout: 0,
      ts: 1401276201,
      scriptPubKey: "76a914e50575162795cd77366fb80d728e3216bd52deac88ac",
      amount: 0.001,
      confirmations: 3
    },
    {
      address: "n2PuaAguxZqLddRbTnAoAuwKYgN2w2hZk7",
      txid: "e2b82af55d64f12fd0dd075d0922ee7d6a300f58fe60a23cbb5831b31d1d58b4",
      vout: 0,
      ts: 1401226410,
      scriptPubKey: "76a914e50575162795cd77366fb80d728e3216bd52deac88ac",
      amount: 0.001,
      confirmation: 6    
      confirmationsFromCache: true,
    }
]

Please note that in case confirmations are cached (which happens by default when the number of confirmations is bigger that INSIGHT_SAFE_CONFIRMATIONS) the response will include the pair confirmationsFromCache:true, and confirmations will equal INSIGHT_SAFE_CONFIRMATIONS. See noCache and INSIGHT_IGNORE_CACHE options for details.

The following are the events published by insight:

'tx': new transaction received from network. This event is published in the 'inv' room. Data will be a app/models/Transaction object. Sample output:

{
  "txid":"00c1b1acb310b87085c7deaaeba478cef5dc9519fab87a4d943ecbb39bd5b053",
  "processed":false
  ...
}

'block': new block received from network. This event is published in the 'inv' room. Data will be a app/models/Block object. Sample output:

{
  "hash":"000000004a3d187c430cd6a5e988aca3b19e1f1d1727a50dead6c8ac26899b96",
  "time":1389789343,
  ...
}

'': new transaction concerning received from network. This event is published in the '' room.

'status': every 1% increment on the sync task, this event will be triggered. This event is published in the 'sync' room.

Sample output:

{
  blocksToSync: 164141,
  syncedBlocks: 475,
  upToExisting: true,
  scanningBackward: true,
  isEndGenesis: true,
  end: "000000000933ea01ad0ee984209779baaec3ced90fa3f408719526f8d77f4943",
  isStartGenesis: false,

Example Usage

The following html page connects to the socket.io insight API and listens for new transactions.

html

<html>
<body>
  <script src="http://<insight-server>:<port>/socket.io/socket.io.js"></script>
  <script>
    eventToListenTo = 'tx'
    room = 'inv'

    var socket = io("http://<insight-server>:<port>/");
    socket.on('connect', function() {
      // Join the room.
      socket.emit('subscribe', room);
    })
    socket.on(eventToListenTo, function(data) {
      console.log("New transaction received: " + data.txid)
    })
  </script>
</body>
</html>
