forge build

Build the project’s smart contracts

$ forge build --help
Usage: forge build [OPTIONS]

  -h, --help
          Print help (see a summary with '-h')

Build options:
          Print compiled contract names

          Print compiled contract sizes

      --skip <SKIP>...
          Skip building files whose names contain the given filter.
          `test` and `script` are aliases for `.t.sol` and `.s.sol`.

          Disable the cache

Cache options:
          Clear the cache and artifacts folder and recompile

Linker options:
      --libraries <LIBRARIES>
          Set pre-linked libraries
          [env: DAPP_LIBRARIES=]

Compiler options:
      --ignored-error-codes <ERROR_CODES>
          Ignore solc warnings by error code

          Warnings will trigger a compiler error

          Do not auto-detect the `solc` version

      --use <SOLC_VERSION>
          Specify the solc version, or a path to a local solc, to build with.
          Valid values are in the format `x.y.z`, `solc:x.y.z` or `path/to/solc`.

          Do not access the network.
          Missing solc versions will not be installed.

          Use the Yul intermediate representation compilation pipeline

          Don't print anything on startup

          Includes the AST as JSON in the compiler output

      --evm-version <VERSION>
          The target EVM version

          Activate the Solidity optimizer

      --optimizer-runs <RUNS>
          The number of optimizer runs

      --extra-output <SELECTOR>...
          Extra output to include in the contract's artifact.
          Example keys: evm.assembly, ewasm, ir, irOptimized, metadata
          For a full description, see

      --extra-output-files <SELECTOR>...
          Extra output to write to separate files.
          Valid values: metadata, ir, irOptimized, ewasm, evm.assembly

Project options:
  -o, --out <PATH>
          The path to the contract artifacts folder

      --revert-strings <REVERT>
          Revert string configuration.
          Possible values are "default", "strip" (remove), "debug" (Solidity-generated revert
          strings) and "verboseDebug"

          Generate build info files

      --build-info-path <PATH>
          Output path to directory that build info files will be written to

      --root <PATH>
          The project's root path.
          By default root of the Git repository, if in one, or the current working directory.

  -C, --contracts <PATH>
          The contracts source directory

  -R, --remappings <REMAPPINGS>
          The project's remappings

      --remappings-env <ENV>
          The project's remappings from the environment

      --cache-path <PATH>
          The path to the compiler cache

      --lib-paths <PATH>
          The path to the library folder

          Use the Hardhat-style project layout.
          This is the same as using: `--contracts contracts --lib-paths node_modules`.
          [aliases: hh]

      --config-path <FILE>
          Path to the config file

Watch options:
  -w, --watch [<PATH>...]
          Watch the given files or directories for changes.
          If no paths are provided, the source and test directories of the project are watched.

          Do not restart the command while it's still running

          Explicitly re-run all tests when a change is made.
          By default, only the tests of the last modified test file are executed.

      --watch-delay <DELAY>
          File update debounce delay.
          During the delay, incoming change events are accumulated and only once the delay has
          passed, is an action taken. Note that this does not mean a command will be started: if
          --no-restart is given and a command is already running, the outcome of the action will be
          to do nothing.
          Defaults to 50ms. Parses as decimal seconds by default, but using an integer with the `ms`
          suffix may be more convenient.
          When using --poll mode, you'll want a larger duration, or risk overloading disk I/O.

          Output the compilation errors in the json format. This is useful when you want to use the
          output in other tools
