Frontend tools for Blockchain Developers

Beyond the limit of NodeJS

Blockchain is definetely an exciting technologies. It's complex but very powerful. Don't think only to cryptocurrencies. Blockchain can be used for many others projects! Here I want to have some ideas about the tool we can use to build innovative and amazing applications with small efforts. No more talking then. Let's start!

Truffle framework

The most popular Ethereum development framework

Truffle is a development environment, testing framework and asset pipeline for Ethereum, aiming to make life as an Ethereum developer easier.

Truffle is easy to learn, it has a very good documentation and it offers additional tools like Ganache and Drizzle to help any developer to work. You cannot ask more. Highly recommended!

Ganache

Personal blockchain for Ethereum development

Ganache is your personal blockchain for Ethereum development.

Drizzle

Reactive Ethereum datastore for dapp UIs

Drizzle is a collection of front-end libraries that make writing dapp frontends easier and more predictable. The core of Drizzle is based on a Redux store, so you have access to the spectacular development tools around Redux.

React JS

A JavaScript library for building user interfaces

React JS is a library, not a framework like Angular. Its simplicity helps the developer to add some dependencies to a NodeJS project and start to build amazing applications with the right effort.

Embark framework

Build Powerful DApps Easily

Embark is a fast, simple and powerful framework to help you develop and deploy Decentralized Applications

Web3 JS

Ethereum JavaScript API

The Ethereum compatible JavaScript APIwhich implements the Generic JSON RPC spec. It's available on npm as a node module, for bower and component as an embeddable js and as a meteor.js package.

Conclusions

As you can see, you have a lot of great tools to work with. Just try the Truffle framework with Ganach and Drizzle and you will discover a great stack! Think about Ethereum and the IPFS protocol or cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin to build great DApps.
