- The tool lowers the entry barrier for developers, rookies or veterans.
- It comes with several templates to get you started creating a smart contract right away.
The Ethereum team announced on November 12th the launch of Ethereum Studio, a tool designed to improve the developer’s experience. It’s a website or an interactive development environment (IDE) that offers the ability to create a web-based development environment in minutes.
The Ethereum team announced on their blog the launch of their new tool that allows experienced or inexperienced programmers to create and test smart contracts in a browser. Just log into studio.ethereum.org to get access to the IDE, which offers several simple smart contract projects, including one that allows you to create ERC-721 tokens or non-dispensable tokens that various Represent types of pizzas and the basis for starting a collecting game.
Plus, you can connect these smart contracts to front-end web applications, share projects with a single click, and launch your applications with three tutorial templates. Ethereum Studio is open source so you can check it all out from GitHub.
The newly released Ethereum Studio also features a new “Introduction” page, especially available for inexperienced developers, with links to web-based learning sites like Crypto Zombies, one of Youtube’s most popular channels that combines aspects of technical and fundamental analysis of crypto coins .
In the introductory video for the Ethereum Studio tool, you can see how you can choose a template to start your own project. It includes an example with settings to test certain configuration options in the IDE and to create other new projects from the menu. It has a file explorer and other features described below.
The team’s contribution adds that it has analyzed the interests of the users of the Ethereum.org website and has therefore chosen to target the content to three main actors, which is the basis for further expansion. These three recipients are: Individuals, e.g. individual ETH owners and community members. It is also aimed at developers, anyone with a technical interest in Ethereum, and ultimately, businesses, corporations, and other organizations who want to understand how Ethereum can benefit them.
The result of the research on which the reorganization is based will be released in the coming weeks with the thought that it will be useful to the community, according to the official Ethereum blog.
Breakthroughs for the network
The global Ethereum community (ETH) is counting the days leading up to the Hard Fork Istanbul scheduled for December 4th, their transactions (EIP-2028) and the inclusion of a new ETH mining algorithm (ProgPoW), all as part of their plans to develop version 2.0 of the protocol. Istanbul will be the eighth strong fork in Ethereum.
On the other hand, the developers of Ethereum have come up with a proposal to solve problems of the scalability of the blockchain, in particular due to the congestion that the transactions with stablecoins represent in the network. The proposed solution is side chain fuel (which could be translated as gasoline).
