npm buidler

buidler-truffle5

Buidler plugin for integration with TruffleContract from Truffle 5. This allows tests and scripts written for Truffle to work with Buidler.

What

This plugin brings to Buidler TruffleContracts from Truffle 5. With it you can call contract() and artifacts.require() like you normally would with Truffle. Interact with your contracts with a familiar API from tasks, scripts and tests.

Required plugins

This plugin requires buidler-web3 as a prerequisite.

Installation

npm install --save-dev @nomiclabs/buidler-truffle5 @nomiclabs/buidler-web3 web3

And add the following statement to your buidler.config.js:

usePlugin("@nomiclabs/buidler-truffle5");

Tasks

This plugin creates no additional tasks.

Environment extensions

An instance of TruffleEnvironmentArtifacts is injected into env.artifacts and the method contract() is injected into the global scope for using in tests.

Usage

There are no additional steps you need to take for this plugin to work. Install it, run npx buidler test and your Truffle tests should run with no need to make any modifications.

Take a look at the testing guide for a tutorial using it.

TypeScript support

This plugin supports TypeScript through a type extensions file type-extensions.d.ts. Add it to the files field of your tsconfig.json file to enable TypeScript support. This plugins depends on the buidler-web3 plugin, so you should add that plugin's type extensions file as well, like this:

"files": [
    "./buidler.config.ts",
    "./node_modules/@nomiclabs/buidler-web3/src/type-extensions.d.ts",
    "./node_modules/@nomiclabs/buidler-truffle5/src/type-extensions.d.ts"
  ]
