To provide context on the difference between access.devnet.nodes.onflow.org:9000 and https://access-testnet.onflow.org. The first one is a grpc binary protocol, while the latter is the https proxy of the grpc binary protocol. The js-sdk needs to work in both the browser and node, so because browsers can’t do proprietary binary protocols we have to talk to the access nodes via the https-proxy.
This might be a dumb question but are the past sporks still accessible? If so, are there https proxys available for those past sporks that we can use for js-sdk calls? When I look at the past sporks page I just see the access node with 9000 port.
Hi there - unfortunately you have to use different urls and possibly versions of the sdk to query past sporks. I believe a community member has created a proxy service to query events of past sporks you can get in touch with.
Here is the discord link. His Discord tag is - NedRyerson#4922
Did you already sort out how to query events from past sporks? I have an http proxy service I have built that lets me query events from any spork (except for a few really old ones that aren’t currently available), I can help you set that up if you’re interested
