I am getting the following error while trying to deploy a Mock contract on the hardhat development chain.

I am following:

Learn Blockchain, Solidity, and Full Stack Web3 Development with JavaScript – 32-Hour Course by Patrick Collins on FreeCodeCamp YT channel

I got this error while I was at 10:48:53 of the above course. I tried almost every thing but nothing helped but I found where the problem was occurring.

Ques: Where do I think the problem is occurring? (12:26)

According to me the problem is at the line where we are trying to deploy the script and we are waiting for the promise to be returned.

Here is the error:

rishavsharma@Rishavs-Air buyMeACoffee-dapp % yarn hardhat deploy --tags mocks

Here is the code snippet in which I am getting the error:


const { network } = require("hardhat");
const { developmentChains, DECIMALS, INITIAL_ANSWER } = require("../helper-hardhat-config");

module.exports = async ({ getNamedAccounts, deployments }) => {
    const { deploy, log } = deployments;
    const { deployer } = await getNamedAccounts();
    const chainId = network.config.chainId;


    if (chainId == 31337) {
        console.log("Development network detected! Deploying mocks...");
        const feedMock = await deploy("MockV3Aggregator", {
            contract: "MockV3Aggregator",
            from: deployer,
            log: true,
            args: [DECIMALS, INITIAL_ANSWER],
        });
        log("Price Feed Mock deployed!");
        log("==============================================");
    }
} 
module.exports.tags = ["all", "mocks"];

Please help me with this problem 🥹

I got the answer from the MASTER himself, @PatrickAlphaC.

When we call await getNamedAccounts in the above code, hardhat looks for the length of the named accounts in our hardhat.config.js

We have to make sure that the property given below is in there!

namedAccounts: {
    deployer: {
        default: 0, // here this will by default take the first account as deployer
    },
},

This solved my problem and I was HAPPY again!

  • I had the same error - I misspelt namedAccounts... hard to pick up, thanks

Thank you Patrick and Sharma. I struggled last few days with the above issue. Now it's resolved. By the way, the video course created by Partick is awesome. Thank you again @PatrickAlphaC.
