Add new network in Ganache using brownie for Ethereum Smart Contract local development

This should show the list of networks available in Brownie.

brownie networks list

In the Ethereum (persistent network) there is no Ganache(local) network

Add a network to Ethereum

brownie networks add Ethereum ganache-local host=http://127.0.0.1:7545 chainid=1337

Name of the network- ganache-local

host- where ganache endpoint is listening i.e. RPC Server

chainid – for ganache it is 1337

Output

Install Ganache for Solidity development

Ganache is the development tool used to run local blockchain for Ethereum development.

Ganache can be used to deploy the contract to local Blockchain. Its a simutated environemnt like Javascript VM when developing on Remix. It helps spin up a local Blockchain.

Ganache UI

Install the Ganache from following location-

https://trufflesuite.com/ganache/

Click the QUICKSTART to get started with Ethereum. By default Ethereum is selected. Ganache can also be used for Corda development

The next screen shows the local Blockchain with the Accounts having 100 ETH and ready to receive the contracts and transactions.

Options in Ganache in later post.

Ganache CLI-

Similar to Ganache UI the local Blockchain node can be setup using CLI.

Install nodejs – https://nodejs.org/en/download/

Check the version of node js

node -v

Install yarn

npm install --global yarn

Install Ganache CLI

yarn global add ganache-cli

Verify installation by checking the version

ganache-cli --version
Ganache CLI v6.12.2 (ganache-core: 2.13.2)

Use following command to see the Accounts, Transactions, Contracts etc in command line same as UI.

ganache-cli --deterministic

For more CLI options see –

https://www.npmjs.com/package/ganache-cli

Start deploying Contracts, signing and sending transactions to the local Blockchain.
