Introduction to Aave

Aave is a decentralized non-custodial liquidity markets protocol where users can participate as depositors or borrowers. Depositors provide liquidity to the market to earn a passive income, while borrowers are able to borrow in an overcollateralized (perpetually) or undercollateralized (one-block liquidity) fashion. Aave’s open-source protocol offers features such as flash loans, rate switching, and more, making it a powerful tool for DeFi applications.


Before you start, make sure you have the following:

  • Node.js installed on your system.
  • Git installed on your system.
  • An account with Tenderly.

Steps to Integrate DevNets into Aave

  1. Clone the Aave Project: Start by cloning the Aave project from Tenderly. This will create a local copy of the project on your system. Run the following command in your terminal:

    git clone
  2. Set Up the Hardhat Config File: Next, you’ll need to set up the hardhat configuration file. This file is used to specify the network configuration for your project. Update the networks section as follows:

    networks: {
        devnet: {
            url: ' . .',
            hardfork: 'YOUR_HARDFORK',
            chainId: YOUR_HARDHAT_CHAINID,
            throwOnTransactionFailures: true,
            throwOnCallFailures: true,

    Replace 'YOUR_HARDFORK' and YOUR_HARDHAT_CHAINID with the appropriate values for your project.

  3. Run Hardhat Tests: Finally, you can start running hardhat tests on your local system. Run the following command in your terminal:

    npm run test-devnet

    This command will run the test suite against the DevNet.


If you encounter any issues during the integration process, please refer to the Hardhat Troubleshooting Guide or the Tenderly Documentation.

Next Steps
