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

What Is Hyperledger Fabric?

Since launching in 2015, Hyperledger Fabric has been a top choice for enterprises looking to build apps on permissioned blockchain networks. The modular architecture is capable of powering large-scale applications that require enterprise-grade data security.

The ability to protect certain details of peer transactions has made Hyperledger Fabric a go-to protocol for industries like financial services, supply chains, and the insurance industry. It works for complex use cases that involve personally identifiable information and proprietary business data.

Hyperledger Fabric is one of the many protocol choices available on Kaleido. With a full suite of plug and play services, flexible cloud deployment options, and powerful APIs, Kaleido is the easiest way to run a Fabric network anywhere.

Benefits of Hyperledger Fabric

Hyperledger Fabric is an open source project designed to handle enterprise-grade use cases. Key differentiators are its quick transaction throughput and its modularity, allowing for more innovation and optimization regardless of industry use cases. Other benefits include scalability and security, key pillars of any enterprise application.

Modular & Pluggable

Hyperledger Fabric is a modular blockchain framework that allows you to plug in different components, such as consensus algorithms and membership services, and tailor networks to your needs

Open source

Part of the Hyperledger project of the Linux Foundation, Hyperledger Fabric is an open source protocol that allows the enterprise to build custom applications and limit vendor risks

Security

With a high level of security for enterprise users, Fabric uses a permissioned network to prevent unauthorized access

Benefits of Quorum

Quorum is a blockchain protocol specially designed for use in a private blockchain network, where there is only a single member owning all the nodes or a consortium blockchain network where multiple members each own a portion of the network.

Scalability

Quorum is designed to be highly scalable, with low transaction latencies and the ability to support a higher number of transactions per second than other blockchain protocols. This makes it well-suited for use in high-volume applications.

Security

Quorum includes a number of security features that are designed to protect sensitive or proprietary data, like private transactions that allow network participants to transact without revealing the details of their transactions to the rest of the network.

Flexibility

Quorum is based on the Ethereum protocol and can support a wide range of decentralized applications and smart contracts. It is also highly modular and customizable so that it can be tailored to the needs of specific use cases.

Gas-free transactions

There is no cost required to submit transactions to a Quorum network, unlike Ethereum, which requires the payment of high and unpredictable gas fees to submit transactions.

How it works

How it Works

Truffle Suite

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.

Enterprise Use Cases
Run Better on Kaleido

Hyperledger Fabric is a private blockchain that allows developers to create subnets, or channels, meaning that certain proprietary or personal information can remain confidential. This makes Fabric a protocol of choice for industries like financial services, insurance, and supply chain management.

Supply Chains

Hyperledger Fabric networks can increase transparency and traceability of transactions within the network. This transparency can be used to monitor real-time location data, limit fraud and counterfeit goods, and track ESG efforts.

Digital Assets

Complex multi-party business networks built on Fabric can easily tokenize assets, transact instantly, share data, and eliminate cumbersome paperwork as financial business flows are automated.

Insurance

Moving insurance transactions to blockchain can eliminate fraud, automate claim processing, and digitize legacy systems. Hyperledger Fabric also allows stakeholders to automate Know Your Customer (KYC) processes via smart contracts.
