There are various development frameworks now available for Ethereum. As seen in the examples discussed earlier, it can be quite time-consuming to deploy the contracts via manual means. This is where Truffle and similar frameworks such as Embark can be used to make the process simpler and quicker. We have chosen Truffle because it has a more active developer community and is currently the most widely used framework for Ethereum development. However, note that there is no best framework as all frameworks aim to provide methods to make development, testing, and deployment easier.
You can read more about Embark here: https://github.com/embark-framework/embark.
In the next section, you will be introduced to an example project to demonstrate the usage of the Truffle framework.
