      libraries: {}, // optional. References to non-inlinable libraries
      optimizer: {
        mode: '3' // optional. 3 by default, z to optimize bytecode size
        fallback_to_optimizing_for_size: false, // optional. Try to recompile with optimizer mode "z" if the bytecode is too large
      experimental: {
        dockerImage: '', // deprecated

Create a simple vyper contract

The zkSync Era cli generates a contracts folder which includes a Greeter.sol contract.

  • Delete Greeter.sol from the contracts/ directory.
  • Add the equivalent Greeter.vy Vyper contract:
# @version ^0.3.3

greeting: constant(String[100]) = "Hello, World!"

def greet() -> String[100]:
    return self.greeting

Compile the contract

yarn hardhat compile

Create deployment script

First update the use-greeter.ts script, supplied by the CLI in the deploy/ directory by importing contract from correct location.

import * as ContractArtifact from "../artifacts-zk/contracts/Greeter.vy/Greeter.json";

Add private key to environment variables

Remove example from the .env.example file and add your private key to .

Deploy the contract

yarn hardhat deploy-zksync --script deploy-greeter.ts


You should see something like this:
