[Solved] Compiler not defined

The following code:
const AeSDK = require(’@aeternity/aepp-sdk’);
const Universal = AeSDK.Universal;
const Node = AeSDK.Node;

const keypair = {
  publicKey: 'top',
  secretKey: 'secret'

var client = null;

async function init() {
  const network = {
    url: 'http://localhost:3001',
    internalUrl: 'http://localhost:3001/internal',
    networkId: "ae_devnet",
    compilerUrl: 'http://localhost:3080'
  const node = await Node({
    url: network.url,
    internalUrl: network.internalUrl,
    forceCompatibility: true
  client = await Universal({
    nodes: [{
        name: 'ANY_NAME',
        instance: node
    accounts: [AeSDK.MemoryAccount({
    nativeMode: true,
    networkId: network.networkId,
    compilerUrl: network.compilerUrl,
    forceCompatibility: true


async function deployContract(_name, _source, _arguments, amount) {
  await init();
  const contract = await client.getContractInstance(_source);
  const deployed = await contract.deploy(); 
  return deployed;

results in the error: Compiler not defined. I have seen several forum posts about this error and the solution was to add compilerUrl on the client. However, despite having done that I still get this error.

What am I doing wrong?

Just make sure that the compiler on URL http://localhost:3080 is alive.
Try to make request manually like GET 'http://localhost:3080/version'

Hey @arjan.chain Can you confirm whether this is resolved?

Yes this is indeed resolved. The problem was exactly as described, an unreachable endpoint.
