Solidity Online Compiler - IDE, Editor & Compiler

Practice solidity coding online with codedamn compiler in your browser. Now edit, run & share your solidity projects & share with the world. Start building smart contracts with solidity.

What is Solidity?

Solidity is a high level, object-oriented programming language for writing smart contracts in the Ethereum Blockchain. Smart contracts are used to manipulate the Ethereum Blockchain and govern the behaviour of the accounts within the Ethereum Blockchain.

Solidity is highly influenced by JavaScript, C++ and Python. It is designed to target the EVM (Ethereum Virtual Machine). With Solidity, you can create interesting Web 3.0 projects like a crowdfunding system, blind auctions, multi-signature wallets. Solidity keeps receiving many regular updates which means that you have to adapt to the new version as quickly as you can. The most recent Solidity version is 0.8x.

As Web 3.0 has just started to gain traction, many companies are ahead of the curve and have already started to adapt to the change and have started implementing Solidity in their development processes.

Top companies using Solidity:

  • LeewayHertz
  • EngineerBabu
  • TreeHouse Technology Group
  • OpenGeek Slab
  • Altoros
  • AppInvetiv
  • Abes Lab
  • Arc Touch

What is a Solidity Compiler?

A Solidity compiler compiles all your smart contracts which are written in Solidity. It outputs all the code into bytecode and various other artifacts which are needed for deploying your Smart Contract to the Ethereum Blockchain. Earlier Solidity was part of the Geth installation, now it has been removed from Geth and has been given its own package.

However, compiling the Smart Contracts which you are writing on your own desktop environment can be a hassle at times as it involves installing multiple libraries and packages for it to compile and deploy. The online compiler removes this hassle by compiling your code on the browser itself where it already has the required packages running in the background. The online IDE helps you write, debug and run smart contracts within the browser itself.

How codedamn compiler is different from others?

Codedamn compiler opens up a docker container in the backend of the website which then uses WebSockets to verify your credentials and then help run the code in the background and display the output to you in the terminal.

In simple terms, it opens a separate linux computer in the background which compiles your Solidity code and checks for any errors or problems in your code and shows the output to you on your computer in the terminal of the codedamn playground.

Solidity Compiler Explained

Solidity first compiles your source code (.sol file) into a format known as byte code. The compilation is simply a translation step, and byte code is a lower-level, and platform-independent, representation of your source code.

Using codedamn Solidity compiler is easy. Write your Solidity Code in the .sol file and at the bottom left of the screen press the RunCode button and the output of your code will be present in the Terminal.

How can you start learning Solidity?

You should check out the Web3 and Blockchain Learning Path offered by codedamn. It covers Solidity and ethereum extensively as it is one of the main runtimes you will be using for programming your smart contracts.

It covers the following topics:

  • Introduction to Ethereum
  • Introduction to Solidity
  • Solidity fundamentals
  • Abstract contracts
  • Polymorphism
  • Deploying contracts

And more!

Codedamn courses also have a test and practice labs at the end of every module which counts towards the final XP towards your certificates. Hence, checking along the way whether you have understood every concept in depth along with the fundamentals required, to check if you can solve real life problems with a program.

Frequently asked questions

Playground lets you write and edit Solidity code which you can easily run and compile right in the browser. You just need to type your code and click on the Run Code button on the bottom left of the screen and the output of your code will be displayed in the terminal.

Codedamn playground uses Solidity v0.8+. Making use of Solidity v0.8+, it runs your code and displays the output in a matter of a few seconds.

Codedamn compiler opens up a docker container in the backend of the website which then uses websockets to verify your credentials and then help run the code in the background and display the output to you in the Terminal.

In simple terms, it opens a seperate linux computer in the background which compiles your Solidity code and checks for any errors or problems in your code and shows the output to you on your computer in the terminal of the codedamn playground.

Installing a separate code editor for only one specific language can be a hassle. Compiling your code on codedamn playground is very easy as it opens up another linux computer for you that does all the work in the background without making your own computer lag, and also compiles it faster than any other compiler available anywhere.

The ease of use is another crucial factor that ensures that all your files are in one place and are always safe, due to the auto-save function which saves every line of code you write ensuring that you never lose your work.

Write your program and press the Run Code button on the bottom left and the output of your program will be displayed in the terminal.

Web3 has started to gain traction, and many companies are ahead of the curve by starting to adapt to the change.

They have started implementing Solidity in their development flow for building smart contracts. The demand for Solidity will be starting to skyrocket this year. This is a great time to be a Web 3 developer. Start learning with Web3 and Blockchain Learning Path.
