Embark is a framework that helps you build, test, and deploy decentralized applications and smart contracts. In a certain sense, Embark is similar to Truffle, especially at its most basic level. However, Embark provides you with more control to manage and deploy smart contracts. This framework is highly extensible and gives you enough flexibility for you to define how much you want to delve into the configuration itself. 

Embark is a framework that allows you to easily develop and deploy Decentralized Applications (DApps). Embark currently integrates with EVM blockchains (Ethereum), Decentralized Storages (IPFS), and Decentralized communication platforms (Whisper and Orbit). Swarm is supported for deployment.
