Install Rustup:

curl --proto '=https' --tlsv1.2 -sSf | sh
source ~/.cargo/env

Add wasm target to your toolchain:

rustup target add wasm32-unknown-unknown

Install near-cli

See near-cli installation docs

Install git

Prepare workshop repo and verify tools installation

Clone the workshop repository

git clone
cd workshop

It should clone the repository to a local folder workshop.

Compile the contract


If you have successfully installed Rust and wasm32 target, then ./ should compile the contract into res/berry_bot.wasm.

   Compiling autocfg v1.0.0
   Compiling proc-macro2 v1.0.9
   Compiling unicode-xid v0.2.0
   Compiling near-vm-logic v2.0.0
   Compiling near-sdk v2.0.0
   Compiling berry-bot v0.1.0 (workshop)
    Finished release [optimized] target(s) in 43.13s

You can check that the contract is present in res/berry_bot.wasm

test res/berry_bot.wasm && echo "OK" || echo "BAD :("

I hope you see OK

Setup NEAR account

Register a new account on testnet.

You can create a new account using NEAR Testnet Wallet It’ll create a new account for you on the NEAR Testnet. The full account ID will be something like alice.testnet

As a Security Method for this workshop I’d recommend to use either Recovery Phrase or Email Recovery.

Authorize your account with near-cli

To allow using your account with near-cli you need to login from the terminal.

near login

This should open a new browser tab in the NEAR Testnet web-wallet and ask you give full access to your account. It’s fine to do, since we’re talking about Testnet account. You’ll need access from command line and near-cli for this workshop.

Once you authorized it in the browser, the command line should automatically succeed.

You should see something like this in the console:

Logged in as [ alice.testnet ] with public key [ ed25519:HP3oxy... ] successfully

Store your account ID into local variable

To help with this workshop let’s store your account ID into ACCOUNT_ID variable in bash. Replace <YOUR_ACCOUNT_ID> with your actual account ID that you created in the wallet, e.g. alice.testnet.



Let’s verify that you’ve successfully created the account and added it to near-cli.

Run the following:

near call --accountId=$ACCOUNT_ID workshop.testnet hello

If it succeeded then you’ve successfully completed your account setup. You should see something like this:

Scheduling a call: workshop.testnet.hello()
Receipt: 5rKUqv4t9JVQryvyfrgrFr8R48iV4sFX7nD56KUv6Vhb
	Log [workshop.testnet]: Hello, test-12331.testnet!
Transaction Id 8D2L4AdhbZ3CqWXMpRURsyqUTNJaBJDcFQsN4W8vU4y7
To see the transaction in the transaction explorer, please open this url in your browser
'Hello, test-12331.testnet!'
