Elven Tools CLI

What is it?

The CLI tool helps to:

  • deploy the NFT and SFT minter smart contracts on the MultiversX blockchain
  • setup and interact with the NFT and SFT minter smart contracts on the MultiversX blockchain
  • provides a couple of helper tools for getting the data from API (NFTs)
    • get collection owners => docs
    • filter and export the data
    • distribute EGLD, ESDT, SFT and Meta ESDT to the NFT owners of a collection => docs

For now it is designed to deploy contracts:

Be aware that smart contracts doesn't have any audits. They has complete functionality for the first versions, but they still needs some improvements. Test them first on the devnet/testnet.

You can use elven-tools-dapp as your frontend dapp for minting process! (NextJS based app with all 4 auth providers included, and React hooks for interaction) (Learn more about it here: How to start with the Dapp) For now, by default it supports only NFT smart contract, but it will handle both in the future.

How does it work?

General how to:

  • npm install elven-tools -g - install elven-tools cli tool
  • elven-tools --version or elven-tools -v - check current version
  • elven-tools --help or elven-tools -h - for getting the commands on the root level
  • elven-tools nft-minter --help or elven-tools nft-minter -h - for getting all the commands for the subcommand

You can also use it with npx directly. For example:

  • npx elven-tools@latest deploy nft-minter
