OTP-006: Contract Package

OTP-006: Contract Package

This proposal defines a way to package compile contracts, their dependencies, and all related metadata into a single file.

Motivation

A unified package format is needed to simplify the process of deploying and upgrading contracts using various tools without the need to configure them.

Specification

The package file has an extension .pkg and is a JSON file:

{
  "name": "My Contract",
  "code": "... boc of code ...",
  "abi": "ABI string to be uploaded as is to IPFS or Ton Storage",
  "init": {
    "kind": "direct", // Means that this contract can be deployed as is
    "args": {
      // ... Arguments in ABI format
    },
    "prefix": {
      // Optional prefix for contract init state
      "bits": 0, // Number of bits in prefix
      "value": 0 // Value of prefix
    },
    "deployment": {
      "kind": "system-cell", // Means that this contract can be deployed as is
      "system": "... boc of system cell ..."
    }
  },
  "sources": {
    "file.ton": "... base64 encoded source file ..."
  },
  "compiler": {
    "name": "func",
    "version": "0.4.1",
    "parameters": "..." // Optional string parameters
  }
}
