VSCode Solidity Inspector •
An extension for VSCode editor to inspect the Solidity smartcontracts and generate yul/asm outputs to inspect what's happening under-the-hood. Read 0age's tweet, it is the inspiration for this extension.
Note: This extension is not tested across multiple platforms yet.Only the contracts under foundry project are supported for now.
0age 👑 dropped the optimization alpha in his tweet and when I tried it out for the first time I thought it was really a cool trick. The tweet has the configuration only for hardhat projects. But forge helps to do the same thing in a single command. So I thought instead of typing out the command for each contract in the CLI, it would be handy for the buildooors if there's an extension to inspect solidity contracts and generate low-level code for the contracts. The o/p generated is very useful for gas optimizations.
TL;DR, this is my first VSCode extension, so feel free to provide feedback as I know that there's a plenty of room for improvements, as always^^
Features at a glance:
- Forge ir-optimized o/p generation for the current file (or) selected file(s).
- Forge asm-optimized o/p generation for the current file (or) selected file(s).
- Forge storage-layout o/p generation for the current file (or) selected file(s).
The following will need to be installed in order to use this template. Please follow the links and instructions.
- Foundry / Foundryup
- This will install
- You can test you've installed them right by running
forge --version and get an output like:
forge 0.2.0 (f016135 2022-07-04T00:15:02.930499Z)
- To get the latest of each, just run
The usage of this extension is straightforward. You can inspect the solidity contracts that are under the foundry project in two ways:
2.) From the command pallet: Press
Cmd + Shift + P -> Search
