Complete Ethereum and Celo wallet implementation and utilities in Rust

Github Actions


Extensive documentation and examples are available here.

Alternatively, you may clone the repository and run cd ethers/ && cargo doc --open

Add ethers-rs to your repository


ethers = { git = "" }

Running the tests

Tests require the following installed:

  1. solc. We also recommend using solc-select for more flexibility.
  2. ganache-cli

In addition, it is recommended that you set the ETHERSCAN_API_KEY environment variable for the abigen via Etherscan tests. You can get one here.

Celo Support

Celo support is turned on via the feature-flag celo:


ethers = { git = "", features = ["celo"] }

Celo's transactions differ from Ethereum transactions by including 3 new fields:

  • fee_currency: The currency fees are paid in (None for CELO, otherwise it's an Address)
  • gateway_fee_recipient: The address of the fee recipient (None for no gateway fee paid)
  • gateway_fee: Gateway fee amount (None for no gateway fee paid)

The feature flag enables these additional fields in the transaction request builders and in the transactions which are fetched over JSON-RPC.

This library would not have been possibly without the great work done in:

A lot of the code was inspired and adapted from them, to a unified and opinionated interface, built with async/await and std futures from the ground up.
