Use the build pipeline

Alert: This command is deprecated. Please use third-party build tools like webpack or grunt, or see our Truffle Boxes for an example.

Truffle 1.0 and 2.0 came standard with a default build system heavily geared toward web applications (here, the term "build" means turning code artifacts into HTML, Javascript and CSS). That build system has been pulled out into its own module to make Truffle usable and extensible for all kinds of applications.

Truffle can be configured for tight integration with any build system. To configure a custom build system, see the Advanced Build Processes section for more details.


To build your application when a build system is configured, run:

$ truffle build

Note you'll receive an error if you try to run the build command without first configuring a custom build process.
