What is Abcmint?

Abcmint is an experimental new digital currency that enables instant payments to anyone, anywhere in the world. Abcmint uses peer-to-peer technology to operate with no central authority: managing transactions and issuing money are carried out collectively by the network. Abcmint is also the name of the open source software which enables the use of this currency.

For more information, as well as an immediately useable, binary version of the ABCMintCore client software, see http://www.abcmint.org.

Development process

Developers work in their own trees, then submit pull requests when they think their feature or bug fix is ready.

If it is a simple/trivial/non-controversial change, then one of the ABCMintCore development team members simply pulls it.

If it is a more complicated or potentially controversial change, then the patch submitter will be asked to start a discussion (if they haven't already) on the mailing list.

The patch will be accepted if there is broad consensus that it is a good thing. Developers should expect to rework and resubmit patches if the code doesn't match the project's coding conventions (see doc/coding.md) or are controversial.

The master branch is regularly built and tested, but is not guaranteed to be completely stable. Tags are created regularly to indicate new official, stable release versions of Abcmint.

Testing

Testing and code review is the bottleneck for development; we get more pull requests than we can review and test. Please be patient and help out, and remember this is a security-critical project where any mistake might cost people lots of money.

Automated Testing

Developers are strongly encouraged to write unit tests for new code, and to submit new unit tests for old code.

Unit tests for the core code are in src/test/. To compile and run them:

cd src; make -f makefile.unix test

Unit tests for the GUI code are in src/qt/test/. To compile and run them:

qmake ABCMINT_QT_TEST=1 -o Makefile.test abcmint-qt.pro
make -f Makefile.test
./abcmint-qt_test

Every pull request is built for both Windows and Linux on a dedicated server, and unit and sanity tests are automatically run. The binaries produced may be used for manual QA testing — a link to them will appear in a comment on the pull request posted by AbcmintPullTester. See https://github.com/TheBlueMatt/test-scripts for the build/test scripts.

Manual Quality Assurance (QA) Testing

Large changes should have a test plan, and should be tested by somebody other than the developer who wrote the code.

See https://github.com/abcmint/QA/ for how to create a test plan.

Mining Algorithm Using GPU

A new program that can be used to do ABC mining on a GPU is recently release at http://polycephaly.org/projects/forcemq/data/MQForceGPU-20180724.tgz

To use it correctly, one may have to do some small adjustments.
