By: Nikhil Bhaskar

Overview of this book

Truffle is a world-class development environment, testing framework and asset pipeline for Ethereum, aiming to make life as an Ethereum developer easier. If you are a web developer wanting to try your hand at developing Dapps with Truffle, then this is the book for you. This book will teach you to write smart contracts and build Dapps with Truffle. You will begin with covering the basics of Truffle, briefly explaining how it integrates Solidity and Web3, in orderto start building a mini decentralized application. Also, you will dive into migration, testing and integrating Truffle with the use of popular JavaScript frameworks. Lastly, you will ship your decentralized application and package it into a product. Moreover, you will go through the best practices in Truffle,so as to increase your proficiency in building Dapps with Truffle. By the end of the book, you will be able to write smart contracts and build decentralized applications with Truffle on Ethereum blockchains.

Choosing an Ethereum Client for Your Dapp

This chapter will give you a chance to integrate all of your newly learned skills and apply them to our real-world smart contract. You will expand on the mini Dapp you built in Chapter 1, Truffle for Decentralized Applications. This chapter will introduce you to various Ethereum clients, highlight the use case for each one, and show you how to integrate each Ethereum client with your Truffle application.

Specifically, you will:

  • Learn and understand how to connect with Geth, Parity, and Ganache
  • Learn and understand how to choose the appropriate Ethereum client to use with your Truffle Dapp
  • See how these three Ethereum clients interact with Truffle
