type BlockSigners

type BlockSigners struct {
	Number     uint64
	Hash       common.Hash
	Author     common.Address
	Committers []common.Address

BlockSigners is contains who created and who signed a particular block, denoted by its number and hash

type Snapshot

type Snapshot struct {
	Epoch uint64 // The number of blocks after which to checkpoint and reset the pending votes

	Number uint64                   // Block number where the snapshot was created
	Hash   common.Hash              // Block hash where the snapshot was created
	Votes  []*Vote                  // List of votes cast in chronological order
	Tally  map[common.Address]Tally // Current vote tally to avoid recalculating
	ValSet istanbul.ValidatorSet    // Set of authorized validators at this moment

Snapshot is the state of the authorization voting at a given point in time.

func (*Snapshot) MarshalJSON

func (s *Snapshot) MarshalJSON() ([]byte, error)

Marshal to a json byte array

func (*Snapshot) UnmarshalJSON

func (s *Snapshot) UnmarshalJSON(b []byte) error

Unmarshal from a json byte array

type Status

type Status struct {
	SigningStatus map[common.Address]int `json:"sealerActivity"`
	NumBlocks     uint64                 `json:"numBlocks"`

type Tally

type Tally struct {
	Authorize bool `json:"authorize"` // Whether the vote it about authorizing or kicking someone
	Votes     int  `json:"votes"`     // Number of votes until now wanting to pass the proposal

type Vote

type Vote struct {
	Validator common.Address `json:"validator"` // Authorized validator that cast this vote
	Block     uint64         `json:"block"`     // Block number the vote was cast in (expire old votes)
	Address   common.Address `json:"address"`   // Account being voted on to change its authorization
	Authorize bool           `json:"authorize"` // Whether to authorize or deauthorize the voted account
