Any suggestion how to solve this issue?

  • Please check if the .contract file exists in the following directory. "contracts/todo_list/target/ink". If it doesn't exist, please tell us the result of executing the compile command with "-v". Commented Feb 16, 2023 at 10:22
  • Which swnky-cli version are you using? There was an issue with copying artifacts some older versions. (latest one being 1.0.11) Also, the swanky dev container is available now, it has a full environment set up with latest swanky version, and removes that warning from polkadot/util github.com/AstarNetwork/swanky-dev-container

There have been multiple new releases of swanky-cli since you posted: https://github.com/AstarNetwork/swanky-cli/releases.

There were some fixes for handling contract artifacts and it's likely that your issue will be resolved by using a recent swanky-cli version.
