Tezos Foundation, the overseer of the Tezos blockchain protocol, has announced that Johann Tanzer of TulipTools, who is creating a Tezos development environment tool called Tplus, has received a grant to continue to build and improve the platform.
Tplus is a collection of GUI (graphical user interface) and CLI (command-line interface) tools to make it easier to manage Tezos nodes for development and production use. Tplus is fully open-source and manages the installation of language compilers and other development tools to make it more accessible for developers to create sandbox environments for testing and deploying their smart contracts.
Tplus is split into three parts: 1) the Tplus server that handles all your environments, tezos nodes, databases, and tools; 2) a web interface, and 3) a command-line client.
The Tezos Foundation’s core mission is to support the long-term success of the Tezos protocol and ecosystem. By funding projects imagined by scientists, researchers, developers, entrepreneurs, and enthusiasts, the Foundation encourages decentralized development and robust participation.
