Creating an ink! Project

Creating an ink! Project

We are going to use ink! CLI to generate the files that we need for a Substrate Smart Contract project.

Make sure you are in your working directory and then run:

cargo contract new mycontract

This command will create a new project folder named mycontract which we will explore:

cd mycontract

ink! Contract Project

├── Cargo.toml              <----- Rust Dependencies and ink! Configuration
└──                  <-- Contract Source Code

0 directories, 2 files

Testing Your Contract

At the bottom of the source code, you can see a simple test uses for verifying the functionality of the contract. You can also quickly test this code using ink! off-chain test environment if it is functioning as expected.

In your project folder, run:

cargo +nightly test

To which you should see a successful test completion:

running 2 tests
test mycontract::tests::default_works ... ok
test mycontract::tests::it_works ... ok

test result: ok. 2 passed; 0 failed; 0 ignored; 0 measured; 0 filtered out; finished in 0.00s
