Thanks Himanshu! If you want to avoid running a full node I would recommend using a service like Infura.
Here’s a post on setting up Infura with Truffle although it’s a little dated. Infura now requires you get an API key and include that in your URL.
Also, you can checkout our starter project which has an Infura configuration in truffle.js set up and uses truffle-hdwallet-provider which eliminates a lot of the boiler plate code you see in the Truffle post.
