And, I executed "eth.getCompilers()" is show enter image description here

I stopped at this step. What should I do make I can create my Greeter Dapp?

Are you using Geth? eth.getCompilers are gone after geth geth 1.6.0. https://github.com/ethereum/EIPs/issues/209

Deprecate eth_compile family of methods

And there is a tool that will help you compiling and deploying contracts. Truffle does the job. And yesterday they had a very good webinar explaining basics of smart contract and how to use Truffle (48 min): https://youtu.be/OoAC_AB4w-o

Learn about the sweetest way to develop for Ethereum. Beginners welcome!

  • Thank you very much. my geth's version is 1.7.3-stable-4bb3c89d; I want to know how to execute the code is the official tutorial about first image's detail.
