Firehose is a new technology developed by StreamingFast working with The Graph Foundation. The product provides previously unseen capabilities and speeds for indexing blockchain data using a files-based and streaming-first approach.
Firehose extracts, transforms and saves blockchain data in a highly performant file-based strategy. Blockchain developers can then access data extracted by Firehose through binary data streams. Firehose is intended to stand as a replacement for The Graph’s original blockchain data extraction layer.
The Firehose documentation is currently maintained by the StreamingFast team on the StreamingFast website.
