Command-Line Interface (CLI)

The command-line interface provides several simple tools to manage and debug Ethereum-related tasks using the ethers.js library.

To install:

/home/ricmoo> npm install -g @wansproject/cli

Sandbox Utility

The sandbox utility run on its own will run a REPL environment similar to running node, with many features from the ethers.js library already imported and permits loading accounts and setting up a provider.

It also provides a simple interface to common tasks, such as sweeping accounts, signing messages and compiling Solidity.

Example: Create and fund testnet account

/home/ricmoo> ethers init ropsten.json
Creating a new JSON Wallet - ropsten.json
Keep this password and file SAFE!! If lost or forgotten
it CANNOT be recovered, by ANYone, EVER.
Choose a password: ****
Confirm password: ****
Encrypting... 100%
New account address: 0xe923a7f82860C30442a1A541C14bE4251bd71A34
Saved:               ropsten.json
/home/ricmoo> ethers --wait --network ropsten fund 0xe923a7f82860C30442a1A541C14bE4251bd71A34
Transaction Hash: 0x457c1d8b58170c73a02afa2816e877de41d6337a483d4af9cbd674d2b478473d

Example: Simple evaluations

/home/ricmoo> ethers eval 'namehash("ricmoose.eth")'

/home/ricmoo> ethers eval 'id("Hello...")'

/home/ricmoo> ethers --network ropsten eval '(new Contract(provider.network.ensAddress, [ "function owner(bytes32) view returns (address)" ], provider)).owner(namehash("eth"))'

Example: REPL

/home/ricmoo> ethers --network ropsten --account mnemonic.txt
network: ropsten (chainId: 3)
ropsten> provider.getGasPrice()
BigNumber { _hex: '0xb2d05e00', _isBigNumber: true }
ropsten> accounts[0].signMessage("Hello...");
  Message:        "Hello..."
  Message (hex):  0x48656c6c6f2e2e2e
Sign Message? (y/N/a) yy
