Upcoming improvements to encoding and decoding

2019-7-29    Harry Altman

When you’re writing, running, or debugging your smart contract, you don’t want to have to deal with raw binary data. Truffle––and Ganache and Drizzle––already contain a number of encoding and decoding features to help you interact with your contract and understand what you’re seeing. But luckily, encoding and decoding are about to become even more robust, informative, and usable.


Token Taxonomy Framework

2019-7-26    Marley Gray, Guest Blogger, Microsoft, Principal Architect - Azure Blockchain

To some, the sudden rise of Tokens in the blockchain dialog comes as a surprise. However, tokens have always been the bedrock of the blockchain movement. The introduction of SmartContract by Ethereum quickly overshadowed them, particularly in enterprise contexts. The capabilities of Smart Contracts and the broad acceptance of them, thanks to companies like Truffle, blazed a trail forward and we all went along. It wasn’t until we got halfway up the trail that someone turned around and asked, “did we pack any trail mix?”


Axoni's Enterprise Use of Truffle

2019-7-25    Jonathan Leslie, Guest Blogger, a Lead Software Engineer from Axoni

At Axoni, our mission is to make shared information more trusted and reliable. We do this through distributed technology that we call "Ethereum-inspired"...given our compliance with the web3 JSON-RPC spec, Truffle basically works "out-of-the-box". However `truffle migrate` was less extensible, so we built a Truffle-based deployment tool.


Open call for contributions by Truffle + PegaSys: EEA private transactions

2019-7-24    Felipe Faraggi, Guest Blogger, Developer Evangelist from PegaSys

In its current state, Truffle doesn't support EEA private transactions.

PegaSys and Truffle have teamed up to make a single open call for contributions. Help out and get some 😎 PegaSys swag and personally thanked on stage at TruffleCon!


The Best Methods to Understand Blockchain Technology if You’re Not A Developer

2019-7-24    Scott Olson

As a non-technical person, it feels like it takes 1.21 gigawatts to keep up with the speed of technology - even Doc Brown himself couldn’t have predicted all of the technological advancements with his flux capacitor. Not only are we trying to keep up with technologies like blockchain, machine learning, and AI, but we have an overwhelming amount of information on the web all at the click of a mouse.


Blockchain Will Cure Cancer

2019-7-23    Faina Shalts

Physicians and scientists will be the actual agents behind a cure for cancer. But in their potential to disrupt the very nature of medical research and treatment, blockchain-based solutions are extremely likely to light the way. It is important when examining any new technology to consider the ways in which it may change the world. Join me here as we briefly look at how blockchain can help lead us to a world without cancer.


Drizzle Vue: A Truffle Story

2019-7-22    Amal Sudama

I felt this was an important problem to solve in order to improve the dapp developer experience. It was important to get Drizzle working for Vue. Unfortunately, I knew nothing about Vue. In previous organizations I was a part of, I would have shied away from pursuing this project. However, at Truffle I felt comfortable and empowered to champion the idea.


An Easier Way to Deploy Your Smart Contracts

2019-7-19    Mike Seese

The Blockchain UI Problem that ENS Solves

2019-7-9    Brantly Millegan, guest blogger from Ethereum Name Service

The blockchain world has a UI problem. The computer-generated address system works great for computers but isn’t user-friendly. That’s where the Ethereum Name Service (ENS) comes in. ENS provides the same basic functionality of DNS (look up the records for “example.tld,” retrieve information), but replaces the hierarchical DNS server system with a few smart contracts on Ethereum.

Ethereum Gas Exactimation

2019-6-21    Nicholas Paterno & Cruz Molina

At Truffle, we decided such an approach was an unnecessarily CPU-intensive solution to the problem and set out to find a (theoretically) more performant and perfectly accurate way of estimating gas. The result? Gas exactimation.


How to get your boss to send you to TruffleCon

2019-5-6    Liz Daldalian

Our First Ever Truffle Retreat

2017-11-29    Tim Coulter

We recently released Truffle 3.0 in February to much fanfare. As part of that release we separated our codebase into multiple different modules to make integrating with Truffle easier. Those modules now live in the github repository, which hints at our broader mission of providing a comprehensive suite of tools for Ethereum development.


Designing the Ganache Logo

One hundred documentation pull requests? Yes please.

2017-10-23    Mike Pumphrey

Greetings! The Truffle team has been growing over the course of the last year. From a single developer, we are now a team of five (soon to be even more), which means that we can spread the work around. As a new full-time member of the team, I've first taken to looking at our existing materials to ensure that everything is up-to-date and working well. For example, our website, a public GitHub repository, had been receiving pull requests (PRs) for the better part of a year, and they had been languishing for want of someone to go through them.


You Can Now Make Your Own Truffle Box

2017-9-26    Josh Quintal

Two months ago we unveiled official integration with Truffle Boxes, example Ethereum applications and/or boilerplates that put complimentary tools and libraries into sweet, easily-downloadable packages. In addition to rolling out some official boxes, released the first community-supported box. Today we're happy to announce anyone can now make their very own Truffle Box!


Learn Ethereum The Fun Way with our Pet Shop Tutorial

2017-7-12    Josh Quintal

Here at Truffle we want to make Ethereum development accessible to developers of all stripes. To that end, today we're releasing a new tutorial called Pet Shop. It covers the entire local development process, start to finish. For added fun, we've tied the whole thing together within the narrative of creating a pet adoption dapp for a local pet shop owner.


Truffle Boxes: Making Life Sweeter

2017-7-6    Tim Coulter

When users begin developing on Ethereum, the first question they ask is, "Where do I start?". In the past, there hasn't been an easy answer: the answer generally consisted of many flavors of "it depends", and usually led to an investigation of what the user was trying to build, a general overview of their development skills, their knowledge of Ethereum, and the libraries and tools they're already most comfortable with. When determining how the Truffle team can help in this process, it quickly became apparent that what our users needed were examples. Many of them. So, being the upstanding community members we are, we set out to create those example, and today, we're happy to show you what we've accomplished.


Removing installation issues, con't: TestRPC

2017-6-13    Tim Coulter

Update: Since this blog post was published, we have released Ganache a personal blockchain and a replacement to the TestRPC. We have left this post unaltered, but we highly recommend checking out our Working with Ganache page.
