A look at Tact: Next generation in smart contracts
Tact, TON’s smart contract language, is designed to lead and become the most user-friendly language for smart contracts for any blockchain, and with Anton Trunov at the helm, this vision is closer to being realized.
Available at tact-lang.org, Tact offers an open platform for collaboration. Anton has laid out a roadmap that also has an open invitation for participation from the community, developers and TON enthusiasts.
Everyone is invited to follow the development of Tact and contribute to its improvement through the Tact Language Roadmap platform, where every comment is valued.
Anton Trunov has outlined a roadmap that addresses key areas to improve security, language capabilities, contract update capabilities, and development tools.
Here’s a quick look at some highlights:
- Collaborating with experts to ensure the security of Tact, with a focus on addressing the security of FunC as Tact is incorporated into it. Includes extensive penetration testing and code execution troubleshooting.
- Introduction of tuples and enumerations for more expressive contracts, implementation of arrays and improvements in the handling of low-level constructs.
- Implementation of a standardized mechanism for contract and family updates.
- Aim to reduce gas consumption for both user-written code and the Tact runtime.
- Focus on VS Code plugin and development of a standalone LSP server for greater editor compatibility.
- Expanded Tact documentation with chapters for beginners, best practices, and common problems.
- Development of automated tools for security audits, including static analyzers and tools for model checking and symbolic execution.
