Smart Contract Development on a Local Machine
Till now, we have been using
Remix to test our smart contracts. In this section, we will learn how to write and test smart contracts locally. That way we can create a consolidated development environment with all of our code in case you ever want to tie in your smart contract development with any fullstack web / mobile development that you do.
To kick off development, create a new project folder. In this project folder we will write the token smart contracts. In your dev folder (on your desktop if you are following this book), create a folder called
erc-20-token folder will contain all of the token smart contracts and the configurations required to develop smart contracts locally.
