Get From Idea to Dapp Quickly and Easily

Kaleido works seamlessly with Truffle so that you can use the world-class development environment, testing framework, and asset pipeline for blockchains.

What It Is

Truffle is a world-class development environment, testing framework and asset pipeline for blockchains using the Ethereum Virtual Machine (EVM), aiming to make life as a developer easier.

Truffle is widely considered the most popular tool for blockchain application development with over 1.5 million lifetime downloads. Truffle supports developers across the full lifecycle of their projects, whether they are looking to build on Ethereum, Hyperledger, Quorum, or one of an ever-growing list of other supported platforms. Paired with Ganache, a personal blockchain, and Drizzle, a front-end dApp development kit, the full Truffle suite of tools promises to be an end-to-end dApp development platform.

  • Built-in smart contract compilation, linking, deployment and binary management.
  • Automated contract testing for rapid development.
  • Scriptable, extensible deployment & migrations framework.
  • Network management for deploying to any number of public & private networks.
  • Package management with EthPM & NPM, using the ERC190 standard.
  • Interactive console for direct contract communication.
  • Configurable build pipeline with support for tight integration.
  • External script runner that executes scripts within a Truffle environment.

Truffle Boxes

Helpful boilerplates that allow you to focus on what makes your dapp unique. In addition to Truffle, Truffle Boxes can contain other helpful modules, Solidity contracts & libraries, front-end views and more; all the way up to complete example Dapps.

Drizzle Boxes

A collection of front-end libraries that make writing d’App front-ends easier and more predictable. Truffle takes care of synchronizing your contract data, transaction data and more.

Kaleido Boxes

Pre-integrated to work with Kaleido. Stand up your full encompassed d’App in minutes. Kaleido does all of the heavy lifting to secure connection.

How it Works

Truffle is the most popular development tooling for Ethereum programmers. Easily deploy smart contracts and communicate with their underlying state without heavy client side programming. An especially useful library for the testing and iteration of Ethereum smart contracts.

Connecting with Truffle

Kaleido environments are provisioned with two pre-configured Truffle boxes for the easy construction and deployment of a basic decentralized application. Truffle is a particularly useful development framework, as it abstracts many of the web3 and Ethereum complexities that typically exist with blockchain app development and allows for rapid lightweight testing and iteration. This is a great way to get started without needing deep expertise around client libraries and JSON/RPC APIs.

The first box truffle-kaleido-box compiles and instantiates the simple storage smart contract. Simple storage uses a single global variable – storedData – specified as an unsigned integer and a single method – set – for state updates.

It is accompanied by the drizzle-kaleido-box which extends the initial library with a React and Redux front end for secure interaction with your Kaleido environment.
