From Jason Dreyzehner : I’ve written descriptions of each opcode and potential error in the script system for the Bitauth Templating Language compiler (used on https://ide.bitauth.com)

Opcode descriptions for opcodes which are common between BCH and BTC: https://github.com/bitauth/bitcoin-ts/blob/master/src/lib/auth/instruction-sets/common/descriptions.ts

Common error messages: https://github.com/bitauth/bitcoin-ts/blob/master/src/lib/auth/instruction-sets/common/errors.ts

BCH only descriptions: https://github.com/bitauth/bitcoin-ts/blob/master/src/lib/auth/instruction-sets/bch/bch-descriptions.ts

BCH only error messages: https://github.com/bitauth/bitcoin-ts/blob/master/src/lib/auth/instruction-sets/bch/bch-errors.ts

Also, I strongly recommend starting from the documentation on bitcoin.org, which is already very good: https://bitcoin.org/en/developer-reference
