Deploy Contract

The deployment of a smart contract involves publishing the contract's binary code, Application Binary Interface (ABI), and other necessary metadata to the Artela blockchain, thereby generating an associated address for the contract, making it available on the network.


You can deploy contract using the following command:

npm run contract:deploy -- --skfile {privateKey-path} \
--abi ./build/contract/xxx.abi \
--bytecode ./build/contract/xxx.bin \
--args [..] \
--gas 200000


  • --skfile : privateKey path for sender. (optional,default value ./privateKey.txt).
  • --abi : contract abi path.
  • --bytecode: contract bytecode path.
  • --args : If your contract's constructor requires input parameters, use --args '[1, "a"]' (optional).
  • --gas : e.g., 200000 (optional,default value 7000000)


## usage 1: deploy a contract 'xxx.sol' using default private key './privateKey.txt'
npm run contract:deploy -- --abi ./build/contract/xxx.abi \
--bytecode ./build/contract/xxx.bin

## usage 2: deploy a contract 'xxx.sol' using private key './privateKey2.txt'
npm run contract:deploy -- --skfile ./privateKey2.txt \
--abi ./build/contract/xxx.abi \
--bytecode ./build/contract/xxx.bin

## usage 3: deploy a contract 'xxx.sol' with 'constructor(uint num, address owner, string name)' constructor.
npm run contract:deploy -- --abi ./build/contract/xxx.abi \
--bytecode ./build/contract/xxx.bin \
--args 1 0xAABB...CCDD "a"

Command Output

If the command is executed successfully, the following log will be printed, which can record the contractAddress, and some commands will rely on this value.

The logic for the create-account command is written in the scripts/contract-deploy.cjs file, primarily relying on the implementation provided by the @artela/web3 API.
If needed, you can modify the logic within this file to achieve your specific functionalities.

Furthermore,you can modify the project.config.json in the project root folder to set the network configurations..
