Working on an Existing Project

Foundry makes developing with existing projects have no overhead.

For this example, we will use PaulRBerg's foundry-template.

First, clone the project and run forge install inside the project directory.

$ git clone
$ cd foundry-template 
$ forge install

We run forge install to install the submodule dependencies that are in the project.

To build, use forge build:

$ forge build
Compiling 10 files with 0.8.15
Solc 0.8.15 finished in 4.35s
Compiler run successful

And to test, use forge test:

$ forge test
No files changed, compilation skipped

Running 1 test for test/Greeter.t.sol:GreeterTest
[PASS] testSetGm() (gas: 107402)
Test result: ok. 1 passed; 0 failed; finished in 4.77ms
