Deploying the same contract on multiple chains can be cumbersome. It requires specific configurations and necessitates the possession of native tokens to initiate transactions. Furthermore, maintaining a consistent address across multiple chains can be technically challenging and time-consuming.
OmniDeployer addresses these challenges head-on by introducing a streamlined Hardhat plugin and user interface:
This drastically enhances the efficiency of multi-chain smart contract deployment, making the entire process seamless and user-friendly.
At its core, OmniDeployer operates by having the same address deployed to all chains. This address, referred to as OmnichainDeployer, is intricately connected with AxelarExecutable. As a result, OmniDeployer can initiate deployment transactions across all chains from a singular chain, exemplifying the power and utility of Axelar's cross-chain capabilities.
It took a a lot of time to test on multiple chains with cross-chain messaging, however, we created an automated hardhat script to test the result in Testnet using Axelar Network.
