Is there any easy way to get 1) version 2) vrf vkey (or hash) via http request or socket w/o a full blown socket client?
I’m trying to do some monitoring but the total lack of JSON RPC (or any useful microservice http based endpoint at all, other than EKG and prom) on cardano-node is extremely frustrating
requiring cardano-cli is not feasible if you are using docker for both running the node and doing monitoring. All other protocols provide JSON or REST interfaces
Cardano inexplicably seems to be the notable exception, unless there are simple things one can do on the socket that don’t require a complex serdes.
I confess I don’t fully understand their design rationale, so I might be missing something obvious.
Alternately, are there sample socket clients or libraries in other languages (golang would be ideal)?
