Ethereum Developer Kit


Overview of Ethereum Developer Kit

If you are looking to get started with Ethereum development & wants to have an out of box environment to get up & running in minutes, this VM is for you. It includes

  1. Truffle Ethereum framework ( http://truffleframework.com )
    Truffle is a world class development environment, testing framework & asset pipeline for Ethereum to make life as an Ethereum developer easier. It includes:
  • Built-in smart contract compilation, linking, deployment & 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.
  • Interactive console for direct contract communication.
  • Configurable build pipeline with support for tight integration.
  • External script runner that executes scripts within a Truffle environment.
  1. Ganache testnet (http://truffleframework.com/ganache)
    Ganache provides a blockchain user interface allows you to quickly fire up a personal Ethereum blockchain which you can use to run tests, execute commands, & inspect state while controlling how the chain operates.

  2. Visual studio code with solidity plugin (https://code.visualstudio.com)
    The Visual studio code along with the solidity plugin gives developer the IDE they need for faster development & testing.

  3. Go Ethereum (Geth) (http://github.com/ethereum/go-ethereum/wiki/geth)
    Geth is the command line interface for running a full Ethereum node implemented in Go programming language. By installing & running geth, you can

  • Take part in the Ethereum live network
  • Mine real ether
  • Transfer funds between addresses
  • Create contracts & send transactions
  • Explore block history
  1. Metamask Firefox plugin (http://metamask.io)
    Metamask allows you to run Ethereum dApps right in your browser without running a full Ethereum node. It includes a secure identity vault, providing a user interface to manage your identities on different sites & sign blockchain transactions.
  2. Quorum private blockchain
    Quorum is an enterprise-focused version of Ethereum. Quorum is ideal for application requiring high speed & high throughput processing of private transactions within a permissioned group of known participants. Quorum addresses specific challenges to blockchain technology adoption within the financial industry, & beyond.
  3. Hands on demos
    The best & fastest way to learn Ethereum development is through sample demos included in the VM. Demos provide developer to play around with the working code to understand various Ethereum & blockchain concepts without doing any coding. The demos include:
  • Hello world demo for Ethereum
  • Complete Dapp with user interface
  • Quorum private blockchain demo
  • Much more …
