Zero to One Full-Stack DApp Ethereum Development based on Foundry, NextJS, Typescript - 3 Setting up the local chain

Setting up the local chain for development

Usually, We have three choose to run a chain on localhost.

  1. HardHat - HardHat Network
  2. Truffle - ganahce
  3. Foundry - anvil

Generally, we should have chosen anvil. It’s a part of Foundry.
Unfortunately, there were a lot of transitions pending when I used it. From my point of view anvil just is the 0.1.0 version. It will be need more time to develop.
And I want to keep pure in chain end’s project(Not more javascript or npm install).
Finally, we used the ganahce to run chain on localhost.

The ganahce is very easy to install and setting up. It’s a GUI application.

Install ganahce

Open ganahce official website Download it and install it.

Create an new workspace

  1. Choose ‘ETHEREUM’ and click the button.

  1. Update the server’s port and network id

The PORT NUMBER is 8545.
The NETWORK ID is 1337.
There are import things. They will match the MetaMask Wallet’s setting.
