Remix is a browser-based compiler and IDE that enables users to build Ethereum contracts with Solidity language and to debug transactions.
Remix Project is a platform for development tools that use a plugin architecture. It encompasses sub-projects including Remix Plugin Engine, Remix Libraries, and of course Remix IDE.
Remix IDE is an open source web and desktop application. It fosters a fast development cycle and has a rich set of plugins with intuitive GUIs. Remix is used for the entire journey of contract development with Solidity language in as well as being a playground for learning and teaching Ethereum.
To try web app, visit: https://remix.ethereum.org.
For desktop version, See releases: https://github.com/ethereum/remix-desktop/releases
Remix libraries work as a core of native plugins of Remix IDE. Read more about libraries here
masterbranch has always the latest stable build of Remix. It also contains a ZIP file with the entire build. Download it to use offline.
Note: It contains the latest release of Solidity available at the time of the packaging. No other compiler versions are supported.
Install npm and node.js (see https://docs.npmjs.com/downloading-and-installing-node-js-and-npm), then install Nx CLI globally to enable running nx executable commands.
bash npm install -g @nrwl/cli
Clone the github repository (
wgetneed to be installed first):
git clone https://github.com/ethereum/remix-project.git
And build it:
bash cd remix-project npm install nx build remix-ide --with-deps nx serve
nx serveand open
http://127.0.0.1:8080in your browser.
Then open your
text editorand start developing. The browser will automatically refresh when files are saved.
Prerequisites: * Docker (https://docs.docker.com/desktop/) * Docker Compose (https://docs.docker.com/compose/install/)
If you want to run latest changes that are merged into master branch then run:
docker pull remixproject/remix-ide:latest docker run -p 8080:80 remixproject/remix-ide:latest
If you want to run latest remix-live release run.
docker pull remixproject/remix-ide:remix_live docker run -p 8080:80 remixproject/remix-ide:remix_live
To run locally without building you only need docker-compose.yaml file and you can run:
docker-compose pull docker-compose up -d
Then go to http://localhost:8080 and you can use you Remix instance.
To fetch docker-compose file without cloning this repo run:
curl https://raw.githubusercontent.com/ethereum/remix-project/master/docker-compose.yaml > docker-compose.yaml
If you have trouble building the package, Make sure that you have the correct version of
nvm. Also ensure you have Nx CLI installed globally.
node --version npm --version nvm --version
In Debian based OS such as Ubuntu 14.04LTS you may need to run
apt-get install build-essential. After installing
Run the unit tests via:
bash nx test remix-analyzer
Running unit tests via
nx testrequires at least node v10.0.0
To run the Selenium tests via Nightwatch:
nx build remix-ide --with-deps && nx serve# starts web server at localhost:8080
npm run selenium-install# don't need to repeat
npm run selenium
npm run nightwatch_local_firefoxor
npm run nightwatch_local_chrome
