Remix Commands

In the console, you can run the commands listed below. Once you start to type a command, there is auto completion. These commands are using the following libraries:

  • ethers: The ethers.js library is a compact and complete JavaScript library for Ethereum.
  • remix: Ethereum IDE and tools for the web.
  • web3: The web3.js library is a collection of modules which contain specific functionality for the ethereum ecosystem.
  • swarmgw: This library can be used to upload/download files to Swarm via

Here’s the list of commands

remix.debug(hash): Start debugging a transaction.

remix.debugHelp(): Display help message for debugging

remix.execute(filepath): Run the script specified by file path. If filepath is empty, script currently displayed in the editor is executed.

remix.exeCurrent(): Run the script currently displayed in the editor.

remix.getFile(path): Returns the content of the file located at the given path Display this help message.

remix.loadgist(id): Load a gist in the file explorer.

remix.loadurl(url): Load the given url in the file explorer. The url can be of type github, swarm or ipfs.

remix.setFile(path, content): set the content of the file located at the given path

remix.setproviderurl(url): Change the current provider to Web3 provider and set the url endpoint.

swarmgw.get(url, cb): Download files from Swarm via https**://

swarmgw.put(content, cb): Upload files to Swarm via https**://

ethers.Contract: This API provides a graceful connection to a contract deployed on the blockchain, simplifying calling and querying its functions and handling all the binary protocol and conversion as necessarily.

ethers.HDNode: A Hierarchical Deterministic Wallet represents a large tree of private keys which can reliably be reproduced from an initial seed.

ethers.Interface: The Interface Object is a meta-class that accepts a Solidity (or compatible) Application Binary Interface (ABI) and populates functions to deal with encoding and decoding the parameters to pass in and results returned.

ethers.providers: A Provider abstracts a connection to the Ethereum blockchain, for issuing queries and sending state changing transactions.

ethers.SigningKey: The SigningKey interface provides an abstraction around the secp256k1 elliptic curve cryptography library.

ethers.utils: The utility functions exposed in both the ethers umbrella package and the ethers-utils.

ethers.utils.AbiCoder: Create a new ABI Coder object

ethers.utils.RLP: This encoding method is used internally for several aspects of Ethereum, such as encoding transactions and determining contract addresses.

ethers.Wallet: A wallet manages a private/public key pair which is used to cryptographically sign transactions and prove ownership on the Ethereum network.

ethers.version: Contains the version of the ethers container object.

web3.bzz: Bzz module for interacting with the swarm network.

web3.eth: Eth module for interacting with the Ethereum network.

web3.eth.accounts: The web3.eth.accounts contains functions to generate Ethereum accounts and sign transactions and data.

web3.eth.abi: The web3.eth.abi functions let you de- and encode parameters to ABI (Application Binary Interface) for function calls to the EVM (Ethereum Virtual Machine).

web3.eth.ens: The web3.eth.ens functions let you interacting with ENS.

web3.eth.Iban: The web3.eth.Iban function lets convert Ethereum addresses from and to IBAN and BBAN. Net module for interacting with network properties.

web3.eth.personal: Personal module for interacting with the Ethereum accounts.

web3.eth.subscribe: The web3.eth.subscribe function lets you subscribe to specific events in the blockchain.

web3.givenProvider: When using web3.js in an Ethereum compatible browser, it will set with the current native provider by that browser. Will return the given provider by the (browser) environment, otherwise null.

web3.modules: Contains the version of the web3 container object.

web3.providers: Contains the current available providers.

web3.shh: Shh module for interacting with the whisper protocol

web3.utils: This package provides utility functions for Ethereum dapps and other **web3.js packages.

web3.version: Contains the version of the web3 container object.

web3.eth.clearSubscriptions();: Resets subscriptions.

web3.eth.Contract(jsonInterface[, address][, options]): The **web3.eth.Contract object makes it easy to interact with smart contracts on the ethereum blockchain.

web3.eth.accounts.create([entropy]);: The web3.eth.accounts contains functions to generate Ethereum accounts and sign transactions and data.
