I have completed the pioneer program and am writing my own app. I've created my react front end and now am trying to serialize my smart contract in
Haskell for a minting policy I wrote. The problem I am having is I believe I am unable to get the Plutus library installed correctly. I did a
cabal update then
cabal init to get cabal in my program. I then pretty much copied the cabal configuration from Week05 in the pioneer program with some slight modifications in to my project. See below
cabal-version: 2.4 name: version: 0.1.0.0 synopsis: license: Apache-2.0 build-type: Simple extra-source-files: CHANGELOG.md README.md common common-all build-depends: base ^>=18.104.22.168 , aeson , bytestring , containers , cardano-api , data-default , plutus-ledger-api , plutus-tx-plugin , plutus-tx , text , serialise , utilities default-language: Haskell2010 ghc-options: -Wall -fobject-code -fno-ignore-interface-pragmas -fno-omit-interface-pragmas -fno-strictness -fno-spec-constr -fno-specialise -fexpose-all-unfoldings -fplugin-opt PlutusTx.Plugin:defer-errors library import: common-all hs-source-dirs: app exposed-modules: TC_Contract
I have an
app folder where I have
TC_Contract.hs so I belivee I have everything I need setup correctly in the cabal configuration.
The error says it cannot find
plutus-ledger-api which is in the cabal file. If I comment out
plutus-ledger-api then it does to the next one on the list of
build-depends. It is like I am missing a reference to something but I don't know where. I think I am missing some information on how I actually get Plutus in my project. I've built a cabal file for a standard haskell program without a problem and the cabal files in the pioneer program were already complete. Confused on what to do. Does anyone have any ideas? Thanks.
Oh also as I note I copied the Utilities folder into my dapp from the pioneer program code as there was a lot of useful functions in there. It is strange that file had its own cabal file as well. Not sure if that is creating a problem as well.
