The first crowdfunding platform from Brazil

An open source crowdfunding platform for creative projects

Welcome to Catarse's source code repository. Our goal with opening the source code is to stimulate the creation of a community of developers around a high-quality crowdfunding platform.

You can see the software in action in http://catarse.me. The official repo is https://github.com/catarse/catarse

Translations

We hope to support a lot of languages in the future. So we are willing to accept pull requests with translations to other languages.

Thanks a lot to Daniel Walmsley, from http://purpose.com, for starting the internationalization and beginning the english translation.

Payment gateways

Currently, we support MoIP, PayPal and WePay through our payment engines. Payment engines are extensions to Catarse that implement a specific payment gateway logic. The current working engines are:

  • MoIP
  • PayPal
  • WePay

If you have created a different payment engine to Catarse please contact us so we can link your engine here. If you want to create a payment engine please join our mailing list at http://groups.google.com/group/catarse-dev

How to contribute with code

Before contributing, take a look at our Roadmap (https://www.pivotaltracker.com/projects/427075) and discuss your plans in our mailing list (http://groups.google.com/group/catarse-dev).

Our pivotal is concerned with user visible features using user stories. But we do have some features not visible to users that are planned such as:

  • Turn Catarse into a Rails Engine with customizable views.
  • Make a installer script to guide users through initial Catarse configuration.

After that, just fork the project, change what you want, and send us a pull request.

Best practices (or how to get your pull request accepted faster)

  • Follow this style guide: https://github.com/bbatsov/ruby-style-guide
  • Create one acceptance tests for each scenario of the feature you are trying to implement.
  • Create model and controller tests to keep 100% of code coverage at least in the new parts that you are writing.
  • Feel free to add specs to the code that is already in the repository without the proper coverage ;)
  • Regard the existing tests for a style guide, we try to use implicit spec subjects and lazy evaluation as often as we can.
