Deprecation: View declaration through CLI

Rémi requested to merge deprecate-cli-views-and-entrypoint into dev

Motivation and Context


Deprecates CLI options --views / -v
Deprecates ligo compile view as it would force us to keep all the necessary logic for the combination of -m and -v
Test.originate_from_file do not have a view parameter anymore


  • compiler
  • website
  • webide
  • vscode-plugin
  • debugger

Types of changes

  • Bug fix (non-breaking change which fixes an issue)
  • New feature (non-breaking change which adds functionality)
  • Breaking change (fix or feature that would cause existing functionality to not work as expected)
  • Performance improvement (non-breaking change that improves performance)
  • None (change with no changelog)


Deprecation: views can no longer be declared through the CLI. One must one the view annotation in the source


  • If a new syntax has been introduced, put a message on slack ligo-lsp
  • Changes follow the existing coding style (use dune @fmt to check).
  • Tests for the changes have been added (for bug fixes / feature).
  • Documentation has been updated.
  • Changelog description has been added (if appropriate).
  • Start titles under ## Changelog section with #### (if appropriate).
  • There is no image or uploaded file in changelog
  • Examples in changed behaviour have been added to the changelog (for breaking change / feature).
