Eclipse is a Modular Blockhain utilizing the SVM on Ethereum.

This article refers to deploying smart contract in Eclipse using Linux. This can be done on windows as well.

Ensure Git and Rust is installed

Install Prerequisites

Install Rust

curl --proto '=https' --tlsv1.2 -sSf | sh

Check if installation was successful

rustc --version

Cloning Hello World Repo

git clone
cd example-helloworld
npm install

Press enter to continue the next command

Incase you get this errors

Paste this commands

npm audit fix
npm audi fix --force

Building the smart contract

npm run build:program-rust

Deploy Smart contract on Eclipse Devnet

solana program deploy dist/program/

It will generate a Program ID. Therefore, our contract is being deployed.

We can run the JavaScript client and confirm whether the smart contract was deployed successfully:
We can run the JavaScript client and confirm whether the smart contract was deployed successfully:

npm run start

If you get a Successful output then you are good. Copy your contract details including your Program ID somewhere safe.

Output should look like this

Let's say hello to a Solana account...
Connection to cluster established: { 'feature-set': 2045430982, 'solana-core': '1.7.8' }
Using account AiT1QgeYaK86Lf9kudqKthQPCWwpG8vFA1bAAioBoF4X containing 0.00141872 SOL to pay for fees
