@shiqicao noticing that it happens on build time.

You’re trying to construct a struct outside of its definition module, which is not possible (as they are private).

To generate a struct outside of the defining module, you’d need a function that creates a struct and returns it inside the foo module itself.


public fun create_foo(): Foo {
    Foo {}

But, keep in mind that this is a public function and anyone could create a struct of type Foo. There are a few ways to guard this:

  1. Adding some business logic based on which you’d return a Foo.
  2. Using a public(friend) function and making the module a friend.
  3. Authentication mechanisms to protect it. (Suifrens uses this technique)

Also, it’s recommended you use the Sui Move Analyzer to catch these issues earlier and improve your development experience!

This is a bug report for the compiler, it is a must fix.
