ConsenSys subsidiary Truffle has announced that it will be integrating its ethereum developer tools with Microsoft Azure in a bid to bring quality developer tools to enterprise blockchains.
“Early on it was very clear Ethereum developers needed professional, modern development tools,” said Truffle founder and CEO Tim Coulter.
“With enterprise’s growing adoption of blockchain technology, Truffle recognises the importance of this opportunity to bring our blockchain-native experience to enterprise developers across the world through our partnership with Microsoft.”
Truffle will join Quorum, JPMorgan’s private enterprise version of the Ethereum blockchain, on the Azure platform. A month ago, Truffle announced enterprise-grade integrations with Quorum and Axoni’s proprietary blockchain AxCore.
Love for open-source community
Truffle tools have already been available on Microsoft Azure since May 2, but the announcement singles out smart contract management solution Truffle Teams as among the first Truffle services to be integrated into Azure.
The solution will let dapp developers manage and monitor blockchain applications, detect anomalies, and analyse smart contracts in real time. Truffle Teams will be free for open-source users.
“The Truffle integration demonstrates our continued investment in working with the open source community,” said Marc Mercuri, principal program manager at Azure Blockchain Engineering.
“Integrating Truffle Suite with Visual Studio Code and Azure DevOps will deliver a world-class developer experience for customers targeting Azure Blockchain Service and public Ethereum.”
