[Ethereum] the difference between Truffle and Remix


Please list the differences between Truffle and Remix.

Where is the use of both applicable? Can somebody list this using an example?

Best Answer

Truffle is a development environment/framework for smart contracts, and Remix is an IDE in the browser.

They both provide the ability to test and deploy contracts, but truffle can be included in projects as a build dependency, whereas remix contains an editor.

I use truffle when building javascript projects based on smart contracts (e.g. Dapps), and use remix for its debugging tools.
