Network Tool

Network tool is a convenient way to organize all of your network configurations in one place.

You can register several blockchains (networks) under short names and then use these names as a target blockchain when working with contracts.

You can mark one of the networks as a default. It can be used in network commands without providing net name.

Add a network

This command adds a network to the everdev registry.

everdev network add network_name network_endpoints

See other available network addition options with help command:

$ everdev network add -h
EverDev Version: 0.5.0
Use: everdev network add name endpoints [options]
endpoints Comma separated endpoints
--help, -h Show command usage
--force, -f Overwrite key if already exists

Example with mainnet endpoints:

everdev network add main,,,,

Set a giver for a network

This command sets a giver account for a network. Giver will be used to top up your account balances on the network, including during deployment.

everdev network giver network_name giver_address

See other available network addition options with help command:

$ everdev network giver -h
EverDev Version: 0.5.0
Use: everdev network giver name address [options]
name Network name
address Giver address
--help, -h Show command usage
--signer, -s Signer to be used with giver
--value, -v Deploying account initial balance in nanotokens

Note: The default signer and the initial balance value of 10 tokens will be used, unless otherwise specified through options. Also note, that some contracts may require a higher initial balance for successful deployment. DePool contract, for instance, requires a minimun of 21 tokens.

Only one giver can be set for a network. Setting another one will overwrite the current giver. To view the current giver settings for all networks, use the everdev network list command (for details see the section below).

List registered networks

This command lists all registered networks, their public endpoints, and their giver addresses, if any.

everdev network list


$ everdev network list

Set default network

This command sets a previously added network as default (initially the mainnet is used by default).

everdev network default network_name

Delete a network

This command deletes a network from everdev registry.

everdev network delete network_name
