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.

Migrating Your Dapp to Ethereum Blockchains

This chapter will teach you how to correctly migrate your Truffle application to Ethereum blockchains. You will learn that migrating your application is a fundamental component in creating a fully shippable, decentralized application. Moreover, you will learn about and work with Ethereum test networks such as Ropsten and Kovan. Lastly, you will learn and uncover common pitfalls when attempting to migrate your application.

Specifically, you will:

  • Learn and understand how to migrate and deploy a Truffle contract
  • Learn and understand how to configure Truffle to deploy to the appropriate network
  • Learn and understand common migration pitfalls and how to mitigate them
