- The tool reduces the entry barrier for developers, rookies or veterans.
- It includes several templates to start building a smart contract right away.
The Ethereum team announced on November 12 the launch of Ethereum Studio, a tool aimed at improving the experience of developers. It is a website or an interactive development environment (IDE), which offers the ability to build a web-based development environment in minutes.
The Ethereum team announced on its blog the launch of its new tool, which allows coders, experienced or not, to create and test smart contracts in a browser. Simply log on to studio.ethereum.org to gain access to the IDE, which offers several simple smart contract projects, including one that allows you to create ERC-721 tokens or non-expendable tokens, which represent different types of pizzas and are the basis for starting a collectible game.
It also allows you to connect these smart contracts to front-end web applications, share projects with a single click, and start your applications with three tutorial templates. Ethereum Studio is open source, so you can check everything from GitHub.
The newly released Ethereum Studio also has a new “Introduction” page available, especially for novice developers, with links to web-based learning sites such as Crypto Zombies, one of Youtube’s most popular channels, which combines aspects of technical and fundamental analysis of crypto coins.
In the introductory video to the Ethereum Studio tool, you can see how you can select a template to start your own project. It includes an example with preferences to test certain configuration options on the IDE and create other new projects from the menu. It has a file explorer and other functions described below.
The team’ s post adds that it has been analyzing the interests of users of the Ethereum.org site, and for that reason they have decided to direct the content to three main actors, which represents the basis for further expansion. These three recipients are: individuals, e.g., individual ETH holders and community members. It also addresses developers, anyone with a technical interest in Ethereum, and finally companies, businesses, and other organizations that want to understand how Ethereum can benefit them.
The result of the research, on which the reorganization is based, will be published in the coming weeks, with the idea that it will be useful for the community, according to the official Ethereum blog.
Breakthroughs for the network
The global community of Ethereum (ETH) is counting the days before the Hard Fork Istanbul which is scheduled for December 4. In August, Ethereum developers approved six changes for this first phase of the Istanbul fork that will include a reduction of data transmission costs for their transactions (EIP-2028) and the inclusion of a new ETH mining algorithm (ProgPoW), all framed in their plans to develop version 2.0 of the protocol. Istanbul will be the eighth strong fork running in Ethereum.
On the other hand, developers of Ethereum have presented a proposal to solve problems of scalability of the blockchain, particularly presented by the overload that represent the transactions with stablecoins in the network. The proposed solution is the side chain Fuel (which could be translated as gasoline).
