OpenZeppelin SDK Command-Line Interface (@openzeppelin/cli)

standard-readme compliant NPM Package CircleCI

Command-line interface for the OpenZeppelin smart contract platform.

OpenZeppelin SDK is a platform to develop, deploy and operate smart contract projects on Ethereum and every other EVM and eWASM-powered blockchain.

This is the repository for the OpenZeppelin commmand-line interface, the recommended way to use the OpenZeppelin SDK.


First, install Node.js and npm. Then, install the OpenZeppelin SDK running:

npm install --global @openzeppelin/cli


To start, create a directory for the project and access it:

mkdir my-project
cd my-project

Use npm to create a package.json file:

npm init

And initialize the OpenZeppelin SDK project:

openzeppelin init my-project

Now it is possible to add contracts to the project with the openzeppelin add command, push these contracts to a blockchain network with openzeppelin push, use openzeppelin create to create instances for these contracts that later can be upgraded, and many more things.

Run openzeppelin --help for more details about this and all the other functions of the OpenZeppelin CLI.

The OpenZeppelin SDK documentation explains how to use the openzeppelin command-line interface to build a project, to upgrade contracts and to share packages for other projects to reuse. It also explains how to operate the project with the OpenZeppelin JavaScript libraries instead of this openzeppelin command.
