Hello xrpchat community,

I am interested in knowing more about XRP-L's smart contracts since there are little to no information regarding this topic.  Hope you are able to answer a few of my question about it.

So,  are there any books or websites that i can buy/visit to learn about the technical sides of XRPL's smart contract programming?  Here are my main questions about this subject.
- what programming language is being used to code a smart contract in XRP-L? 
- what are the challenges on programming and publishing smart contracts?
- could smart contract exchange messages/data with each other?
- why is this better than Flare's smart contract or in general,  the Flare Network itself.

It would also be very kind of you if you could add some important information regarding this subject.  Thank you.

Within the RippleX community of developers XRPL Labs is working on native/XRPL-based smart contract functionality via an amendment called "Hooks." Flare Networks is a touring-complete Federated Byzantine Agreement (FBA) smart contract platform. The first Hooked article below explains/details the difference between native smart contract functionality (Hooks) vs Flare Networks (touring-complete).

  2. Hooked #2: Hooks & Security (Smart Contracts on the XRP ledger)

Ripple also has Codius which was developed way back in 2015 by Ripple's former CTO, Stefan Thomas (now CEO of Coil and Chairman of the Interledger Foundation). It has been pretty much in stealth-mode since then. In the Codius link I referenced, Stefan goes into the reason(s) Codius has yet to be fully realized. Recently, Stefan added a bit more color to picture on Twitter about how he and Evan Schwartz (Coil Board member and President of the Interledger Foundation) worked on Interledger and Web Monetization to provide the infrastructure that will help facilitate more rapid up-take of Codius (worth a read). On a recent podcast Ripple's current CTO & co-creator of the XRPL, David Schwartz, further elaborates as to the reason(s) Codius has yet to be implemented and his thoughts on Flare Networks.
