Developer activity of the Ethereum blockchain network is actively rising, as more developers continue to learn to contribute code to the protocol and develop efficient decentralized applications on Ethereum.
Recently, Truffle, an open-source development environment, testing framework and asset pipeline for Ethereum, surpassed 200,000 downloads from individual developers. In the past three months, Truffle’s user base of developers has grown by 60 percent, which is a rapid rate for a development tool for a particular public blockchain network.
With tools like Truffle, developers can freely develop and deploy decentralized applications by compiling smart contracts and deploying binary management. Specifically, Truffle also enables developers to rely on its network management for implementing smart contracts across many public and private networks.
As such, the rise in the popularity of open-source development frameworks portrays the exponential growth rate of the Ethereum development community. Truffle creator Tim Coulter expressed his appreciation towards the Ethereum community for using the Truffle open-source development tool and for creating a vibrant development ecosystem for developers from other industries to contribute:
“We’re humbled by the use of our tools and the support we’ve gotten from the community. Thank you all.”
The rapid growth rate of the Ethereum community and the open-source development community has also been evident in the scale of the meetups, hackathons, and conferences, including major events like DevCon, the Seoul Ethereum Meetup and the Toronto Ethereum developer meetup…
