Truffle is a development environment, testing framework and asset pipeline for Ethereum, aiming to make life as an Ethereum developer easier. With Truffle, you get:
$ npm install -g truffle
For a default set of contracts and tests, run the following within an empty project directory:
$ truffle init
From there, you can run
truffle migrate and
truffle test to compile your contracts, deploy those contracts to the network, and run their associated unit tests.
See the documentation for more details.
Please see the Official Truffle Documentation for guides, tips, and examples.
There are many ways to contribute!
Please see the main projects CONTRIBUTING.md for instructions on how to setup a Development Environment to work on Truffle itself.
