TronBox is a tool for developing, testing, and deploying smart contracts. It is designed for blockchains using the TRON Virtual Machine (TVM).

  • Built-in smart contract compilation, linking, deployment, and binary management.
  • External script runner that executes scripts within a TronBox environment.
  • Interactive console for direct contract communication.
  • Automated contract testing for rapid development.
  • Scriptable, extensible deployment & migrations framework.
  • Network management for deploying to any number of public & private networks.

TronBox is a fork of Truffle.

Quick Start


Before you can use TronBox, install it using the npm command. For details, see Install TronBox.

$ npm install -g tronbox

Note: To verify the PGP signature, see here.

Create a default Tron-Box Project

You can create a bare project without smart contracts, run:

$ tronbox init

Once this operation is completed, you'll now have a project structure with the following items:

contracts/: Directory for Solidity contracts
migrations/: Directory for scriptable deployment files
test/: Directory for test files for testing your application and contracts
tronbox.js: TronBox configuration file

For those getting started, you can use TronBox Boxes, which offers example applications and project templates. For details, see Create a TronBox Project.


If you want to only compile, run:

$ tronbox compile

To compile all contracts, use the --compile-all option.
Specify a network using the --network option. Network name must exist in the configuration. For details, see Compile a Project.


To deploy our smart contracts, you need to connect to a blockchain. Use the TronBox Runtime Environment to create and interact with the blockchain. For details, see Contract Deployment (Migrations).

To run your migrations, run the following:

$ tronbox migrate


To run all tests, run:

$ tronbox test

Alternatively, you can specify a path to a specific file you want to run: tronbox test ./path/to/test/file.js. For details, see Test Your Contracts.

Interact with the contract

To interact with the contract, run:

$ tronbox console

You will see the following prompt:

$ tronbox(development)>

The name in the parentheses of the prompt tronbox(development)> is the network that is currently connected to. For details, see Interact with a Contract.


To dive deeper into advanced topics of the TronBox project lifecycle, please see the Official TronBox Documentation for guides, tips, and examples.
