Open-Transactions Library Project
The Open-Transactions project is a collaborative effort to develop a robust, commercial-grade, fully-featured, free-software toolkit implementing the OTX protocol as well as a full-strength financial cryptography library, API, CLI, and prototype server. The project is managed by a worldwide community of volunteers that use the Internet to communicate, plan, and develop the Open-Transactions toolkit and its related documentation.
Open-Transactions democratizes financial and monetary actions. You can use it for issuing currencies/stock, paying dividends, creating asset accounts, sending/receiving digital cash, writing/depositing cheques, cashier's cheques, creating basket currencies, trading on markets, scripting custom agreements, recurring payments, escrow, etc.
Open-Transactions uses strong crypto. The balances are unchangeable (even by a malicious server.) The receipts are destructible and redundant. The transactions are unforgeable. The cash is untraceable. The cheques are non-repudiable. Etc.
This product includes software developed by Ben Laurie for use in the Lucre project.
All development goes in develop branch - please don't submit pull requests to master.
Use clang-format and cmake-format.
clang-format Git hook
For convenience please enable the git hook which will trigger clang-format each time you commit. To do so type in the repo directory:
cd .git/hooks ln -s ../../cmake/scripts/git_hooks/pre-commit
Ensure opentxs is fully checked out prior to running cmake:
git submodule update --init --recursive
Basic build instructions:
mkdir build cd build cmake -GNinja -DBUILD_SHARED_LIBS=ON .. cmake --build . ctest -j4 sudo cmake --install .
