Truffle compile and migrate not working

by skr   Last Updated February 27, 2019 18:28 PM

I have a geth node running on my laptop. This is the command I used to start geth.

geth --port 4321 --networkid 1234 --datadir=./dataDir  --rpc --rpcport 8543 --rpcaddr 127.0.0.1  --rpcapi "eth,net,web3,personal,miner"

geth attach http://127.0.0.1:8543/

I have the truffle folder structure as below:

truffle folder structure

This is my truffle-config.js

**
 * Use this file to configure your truffle project. It's seeded with some
 * common settings for different networks and features like migrations,
 * compilation and testing. Uncomment the ones you need or modify
 * them to suit your project as necessary.
 *
 * More information about configuration can be found at:
 *
 * truffleframework.com/docs/advanced/configuration
 *
 * To deploy via Infura you'll need a wallet provider (like truffle-hdwallet-provider)
 * to sign your transactions before they're sent to a remote public node. Infura API
 * keys are available for free at: infura.io/register
 *
 * You'll also need a mnemonic - the twelve word phrase the wallet uses to generate
 * public/private key pairs. If you're publishing your code to GitHub make sure you load this
 * phrase from a file you've .gitignored so it doesn't accidentally become public.
 *

// const HDWalletProvider = require('truffle-hdwallet-provider');
// const infuraKey = "fj4jll3k.....";

module.exports = {
  /**
   * Networks define how you connect to your ethereum client and let you set the
   * defaults web3 uses to send transactions. If you don't specify one truffle
   * will spin up a development blockchain for you on port 9545 when you

   rpc: {
    host:"localhost",
    port:8545
},
  networks: {
    // Useful for testing. The `development` name is special - truffle uses it by default
    // if it's defined here and no other network is specified at the command line.
    // You should run a client (like ganache-cli, geth or parity) in a separate terminal
    // tab if you use this network and you must also set the `host`, `port` and `network_id`
    // options below to some value.

     development: {
       host: "127.0.0.1",     // Localhost (default: none)
       port: 8545,            // Standard Ethereum port (default: none)
      network_id: "*",
      from: 0x2e0d45a887c8120d7bc6a3d06aec5214270902ba,
      gas:8500000,
      gasPrice:2000000000,       // Any network (default: none)
     },

    // Another network with more advanced options...
    // advanced: {

      // websockets: true        // Enable EventEmitter interface for web3 (default: false)
    // },

    // Useful for deploying to a public network.
    // NB: It's important to wrap the provider as a function.

      // provider: () => new HDWalletProvider(mnemonic, `https://ropsten.infura.io/${infuraKey}`),
      // network_id: 3,       // Ropsten's id
      // gas: 5500000,        // Ropsten has a lower block limit than mainnet
      // confirmations: 2,    // # of confs to wait between deployments. (default: 0)
      // timeoutBlocks: 200,  // # of blocks before a deployment times out  (minimum/default: 50)
      // skipDryRun: true     // Skip dry run before migrations? (default: false for public nets )
    // },

    // Useful for private networks
    // private: {
      // provider: () => new HDWalletProvider(mnemonic, `https://network.io`),
      // network_id: 2111,   // This network is yours, in the cloud.
      // production: true    // Treats this network as if it was a public net. (default: false)
    // }
  },

  // Set default mocha options here, use special reporters etc.
  mocha: {
    // timeout: 100000
  },

  // Configure your compilers
  compilers: {
    solc: {
       version: "0.6.0",    // Fetch exact version from solc-bin (default: truffle's version)
      // docker: true,        // Use "0.5.1" you've installed locally with docker (default: false)
      // settings: {          // See the solidity docs for advice about optimization and evmVersion
      //  optimizer: {
      //    enabled: false,
      //    runs: 200
      //  },
      //  evmVersion: "byzantium"
      // }
    }
  }
}

This is the smart contract I have:

pragma solidity >=0.4.18;

Contract HelloWorld {

    function hi() public pure returns (string) {

        return (“Hello World”);

    }

}

My 2_deploy_contracts.js:

var HelloWorld = artifacts.require("./HelloWorld.sol");
module.exports = function(deployer) {
   deployer.deploy(HelloWorld);
};

When i run truffle compile, nothing happens and truffle migrate also doesn't return any information. I tried using ganache instead of the geth node. Still, it is not working. I am running the node from my macbook pro laptop. I am not sure if a port needs to opened or something is wrong with the contract. Please help

Thanks in advance skr
