Thirdweb is an all-encompassing Web3 development platform that provides a comprehensive suite of tools essential for smart contract and DApp development. With thirdweb, developers have access to a variety of resources tailored to support every stage of the DApp development process.

For a detailed instructions on thirdweb, using the CLI & SDK for creating and deploying applications, refer to the comprehensive thirdweb documentation.

Thirdweb CLI

1. Create a project

To create a new smart contract using the thirdweb CLI, run the following command:

npx thirdweb create

2. Configure your project

Input the following to confirgure your project in CLI:

  • What type of project do you want to create?
  • What is your project named?
  • What is the framework do you want to use?
  • What will be the name of your new smart contract?
  • What type of contract do you want to start from?
  • What extension do you want to add to your contract?

Thirdweb gives you the flexibility to chose the suitable options. Example, You can create a new project using Hardhat or Forge and add optional extensions.

3. Deploying a smart contract:

npx thirdweb deploy

Executing this command will trigger the following actions:

  • Compiling all the contracts in the current directory
  • Providing the option to select which contract(s) you wish to deploy
  • Uploading your contract source code (ABI) to IPFS

4. Network selection

After running the above command, visit the provided dashboard URL and select Cyber or Cyber Testnet from the network dropdown.

  • The dashboard will also require you to fill out the parameters, For example, If you are deploying an ERC20 based smart contract, you will have to enter the _name(Contract Name) and _symbol(Token symbol or ticket).

For additional information on Deploy, please reference thirdweb’s documentation.

5. Publishing a smart contract

npx thirdweb publish

You can publish and share your contract onto thirdweb's registry.

Thirdweb SDK

Thirdweb offers SDKs for a range of programming languages, such as TypeScript, React, React Native, Unity, .NET and Solidity.

1. Create a new application

Run the following command to start creating a new application:

npx thirdweb create --app

Input your preferences for the command line prompts:

  • Give your project a name
  • Choose your network
  • Choose your preferred framework: Next.js, CRA, Vite, React Native, Node.js, or Express
  • Choose your preferred language: JavaScript or TypeScript

2. Initialize SDK on Cyber Network

Wrap your application in the ThirdwebProvider component and change the activeChain to Cyber Network.

import { ThirdwebProvider } from "@thirdweb-dev/react";
import { Cyber } from "@thirdweb-dev/chains";
const App = () => {
  return (
    <ThirdwebProvider activeChain={ Cyber }>
      <YourApp />

3. Connect to your contract:

To connect to your contract, use the SDK’s getContract method. You will need to pass a client ID/secret key to use thirdweb's infrastructure services. If you don't have any API keys yet you can create one for free from the dashboard settings.

// create the client with your clientId, or secretKey if in a server environment
export const client = createThirdwebClient({ 
  clientId: "YOUR_CLIENT_ID" 
// connect to your contract
export const contract = getContract({ 
  chain: defineChain(7560), 
  address: "0x..."

4. Calling contract functions

You can use the hook, useReadContract to read from a contract:

import { useReadContract } from "thirdweb/react";
import { getOwnedNFTs } form "thirdweb/extensions/erc721"
const { data, isLoading } = useReadContract(getOwnedNFTs, { contract, owner: address });
  • Example: below is a code snippet that uses useOwnedNFTs hook to get a list of NFTs owned by a single wallet address:
import { useOwnedNFTs } from '@thirdweb-dev/react';
const { data: ownedNFTs, isLoading, error } = useOwnedNFTs(contract, "0x...", { start: 0, count: 100 });

5. Connect Wallets

You can use the hook, useConnectedWallets, to return all connected wallets.

import { useConnectedWallets } from "thirdweb/react";
const wallets = useConnectedWallets();

6. Send Transaction

You can use useSendTransaction, hook to send a transaction

import { useSendTransaction } from "thirdweb/react-native";
const { mutate: sendTx, data: transactionResult } = useSendTransaction();
// later

6. Deploy your app

Use the following command to deploy your static web application on IPFS:

npx thirdweb deploy --app
