Introducing thirdweb Deploy

A game changing tool for web3 developers

  • Deploy your smart contracts without dealing with private keys or scripts
  • Automatic SDKs for your contracts - javascript, python, node (go/unity/ios/android soon)
  • Manage contracts with an intuitive dashboard
  • Publish contracts for your team or public use
  • See whats happening on-chain with analytics
Learn more about thirdweb Deploy from our Head of Engineering, Joaquim Verges. 

๐Ÿ•ธ๏ธ What is thirdweb?

Our mission is to make it easy to develop web3 apps & games. Currently our platform offers a variety of pre-built smart contracts (NFT Drops, Marketplaces, Voting, Splits, etc) that you can integrate into your application by using our SDKs and Dashboard.

We are extending thirdweb to support any smart contracts you develop!

You can now deploy your own smart contracts and get all the benefits of the thirdweb platform: SDKs, Dashboards and Analytics for free.

If you have a smart contract (ERC721A, Staking, Yield Farming, your own, etc) and want to build apps with it, this feature is for you!

Write your solidity smart contract, deploy through thirdweb and enjoy the benefits for free:

  • Automatic SDK - interact with your contracts easily
  • Manage your contracts using our dashboard
  • See activity of your contracts in our dashboard

๐Ÿš€ Getting started

Once you have a solidity contract (your own or from Github) you can enable thirdweb with a few steps:

Install the contracts package

npm i @thirdweb-dev/contracts

Extend ThirdwebContract in your Solidity code

// SPDX-License-Identifier: MIT
pragma solidity ^0.8.4; 

import "@thirdweb-dev/contracts/ThirdwebContract.sol"; 

contract MyCustomContract is ThirdwebContract {    
// ... your contract code

Deploy it

npx thirdweb deploy

This command will:

  • auto-detect any contract that extends ThirdwebContract in your project
  • compile your project
  • Upload ABI and bytecode to IPFS
  • Generate a deploy link

Follow the link to the dashboard where you can connect a wallet (or a multi-sig like gnosis) to deploy your code to blockchains from your browser connected wallet. No copy/pasting private keys or complex scripting required!

Deploy contracts from the browser.

We currently support hardhat,forge, truffle, brownie projects, and even raw solc compilation! For more information on the thirdweb CLI, head over to our thirdweb CLI github repository.

You can deploy a specific instance of the contract directly from your dashboard, specifying basic contract metadata and parameters.

Fill in contract metadata and parameters.

Once deployed, you can immediately start interacting with your deployed contract using automatically thirdweb SDKs! Your contract dashboard will show how to get started and how to call functions on your contract.

If your contract implements any common EIP specification - like ERC20, ERC721, ERC1155 and more - we auto detect this in the SDK and in our dashboard. This means you get the same intuitive APIs in React, Typescript and Python and convenient web dashboard that you would get with our built-in contracts.

๐Ÿ’ป Javascript / Typescript SDK


npm install @thirdweb-dev/sdk

EIP Feature detection:

// interact with your contract without dealing with ABIs
const contract = await sdk.getContract("0x..."); 

// call any contract function (see dashboard for list of function signatures)
await contract.functions.someCustomFunction(); 

// if your contract follows the ERC721 standard, contract.nft will be present
const allNFTs = await constract.nft.query.all() 

// if your contract extends IMintableERC721, will be present
const tx = await"0x...", {    name: "Cool NFT",    image: readFileSync("some_image.png"),  });

Find out more in our documentation.

๐Ÿ’ป React SDK


npm install @thirdweb-dev/react

Contract hooks

// Use your contract in a react project
const { contract, isLoading, error } = useContract("0x...."); 

// if your contract follows the ERC721 standard you use custom "NFT" hooks
const { data: nfts, isLoading, error } = useNFTList(contract); 

//if your contract extends IMintableERC721, you can mint using hooks
const { mutate: mint, isLoading, error } = useNFTMint(contract);
	name: "Cool NFT",    
    image: readFileSync("some_image.png"),  

Find out more in our documentation.

๐Ÿ’ป ย Python SDK


pip install thirdweb-sdk

EIP Feature detection:

# interact with your contract without dealing with ABIs
contract = sdk.get_custom_contract("0x...") 

# read data from your contract

# send transactions
contract.send_transaction("mintTo", ["0x...", "ipfs://..."]) 

# if your contract follows the ERC721 standard, get convenience APIs

Find out more in our documentation.

๐ŸŒŽ Dashboard

Your contract dashboard page also auto detects standard functionality like ERC721 to lists your contract tokens, and even mint functionality.

๐Ÿ“œ Contract SDK

We support any contract that youโ€™ll write and you can use the SDK to call raw functions on it. But to get the full thirdweb convenience, APIs and dashboard functionality, you can extend your dashboard with our contract interfaces to enable specific features in the SDK and dashboard.

// SPDX-License-Identifier: MIT
pragma solidity ^0.8.4; 

import "@thirdweb-dev/contracts/ThirdwebContract.sol";
****import "@thirdweb-dev/contracts/feature/interface/IMintableERC721.sol"; 

// Adding IMintableERC721 and implementing it gives you
// SDK -> with auto upload to IPFS
// Dashboard -> Mint button on admin dashboard 
contract MyCustomContract is ThirdwebContract, IMintableERC721 {

	function mintTo(address to, string calldata uri) external returns (uint256) {        
	// implement your mint function

โš ๏ธ Early access disclaimers

This an early preview that comes with some limitations for this alpha release

  • Requires Solidity > 0.8.0
  • Only supports publishing and deploying on testnets (mainnet coming very soon!)

Since this is an early preview, be prepared for your published contracts to not be accessible anymore once we launch this product fully.

๐Ÿ› ๏ธ We want to hear from you

Once you've deployed your contract, we'd love to hear your experience. Fill in this quick survey to help shape the future of the product!

To chat direclty with us, Join our Discord. Head to the #general channel and say: โ€œi'm a builder. here for the alpha.โ€

We'll grant you a role to access to the builders alpha channel where you can share your feedbacks and bug reports to our engineering team.
