I'm trying to run my deploy.js file which has the code :

const HDWalletProvider = require("truffle-hdwallet-provider");

const Web3 = require("web3");

const compiledFactory = require('./build/CampaignFactory.json');

//const web3 = new Web3(provider);

const provider = new HDWalletProvider(

  "[12 word mnemonic]",

  "[rinkeby api from infura]"


const web3 = new Web3(provider);

const deploy = async () => {

  const accounts = await web3.eth.getAccounts();

  console.log("Attempting to deply from account", accounts[0]);

  const result = await new web3.eth.Contract(JSON.parse(compiledFactory.interface))

    .deploy({ data: compiledFactory.bytecode })

    .send({ gas: '1000000', from: accounts[0] });


  console.log("Contract deployed to", result.options.address);



And when I run node deploy.js: it is throwing the error now, which was working fine before, The Error is shown below:




TypeError: core.addProviders is not a function

This problem has a short and simple solution. Simply change your web3 version to 1.0.0-beta.37. Execute the code once you update your web3 version. It should work fine.
