Build profile options


forc deploy [OPTIONS] [SIGNING_KEY]


<SIGNING_KEY> Set the key to be used for signing



Print the generated Sway AST (Abstract Syntax Tree)

--build-profile <BUILD_PROFILE>

Name of the build profile to use.

If unspecified, forc will use debug build profile.

--dca-graph <DCA_GRAPH>

Print the computed Sway DCA graph. DCA graph is printed to the specified path. If specified '' graph is printed to stdout

--dca-graph-url-format <DCA_GRAPH_URL_FORMAT>

Specifies the url format to be used in the generated dot file. Variables {path}, {line} {col} can be used in the provided format. An example for vscode would be: "vscode://file/{path}:{line}:{col}"


Treat warnings as errors



Print the finalized ASM.

This is the state of the ASM with registers allocated and optimisations applied.

-g, --output-debug <DEBUG_FILE>

If set, outputs source file mapping in JSON format

--gas-limit <LIMIT>

Gas limit for the transaction

[default: 100000000]

--gas-price <PRICE>

Gas price for the transaction

[default: 0]

-h, --help

Print help information


Print the generated ASM.

This is the state of the ASM prior to performing register allocation and other ASM optimisations.


Print the generated Sway IR (Intermediate Representation)


By default the JSON for ABIs is formatted for human readability. By using this option JSON output will be "minified", i.e. all on one line without whitespace


Outputs json abi with callpaths instead of names for struct and enums


By default the JSON for initial storage slots is formatted for human readability. By using this option JSON output will be "minified", i.e. all on one line without whitespace


Requires that the Forc.lock file is up-to-date. If the lock file is missing, or it needs to be updated, Forc will exit with an error

--maturity <MATURITY>

Block height until which tx cannot be included

[default: 0]

--node-url <NODE_URL>

The URL of the Fuel node to which we're submitting the transaction. If unspecified, checks the manifest's network table, then falls back to [crate::default::NODE_URL]


-o, --output-bin <BIN_FILE>

If set, outputs a binary file representing the script bytes


Offline mode, prevents Forc from using the network when managing dependencies. Meaning it will only try to use previously downloaded dependencies

--output-directory <OUTPUT_DIRECTORY>

The directory in which the sway compiler output artifacts are placed.

By default, this is <project-root>/out.

-p, --path <PATH>

Path to the project, if not specified, current working directory will be used


Generate a random salt for the contract. Useful for testing or deploying examples to a shared network


Use release build plan. If a custom release plan is not specified, it is implicitly added to the manifest file.

If --build-profile is also provided, forc omits this flag and uses provided build-profile.

--salt <SALT>

Optional 256-bit hexadecimal literal(s) to redeploy contracts.

For a single contract, use --salt <SALT>, eg.: forc deploy --salt 0x0000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000001

For a workspace with multiple contracts, use --salt <CONTRACT_NAME>:<SALT> to specify a salt for each contract, eg.:

forc deploy --salt contract_a:0x0000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000001 --salt contract_b:0x0000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000002

-t, --terse

Terse mode. Limited warning and error output


Output the time elapsed over each part of the compilation process


Do not sign the transaction

-V, --version

Print version information


You can use forc deploy, which triggers a contract deployment transaction and sends it to a running node.

Alternatively, you can deploy your Sway contract programmatically using fuels-rs, our Rust SDK.

You can find an example within our fuels-rs book.
