Simple Bitcoin Payments
Gateway is a payment processor enabling merchants to easily accept Bitcoin Cash on their sites without the need for hassle or technical know-how. Check out the Gateway Project Charter for our roadmap, use-cases and a lot more info.
In order to get established with a development workflow, there are a few extra things you need to do aside from simply cloning the repository.
MySQL Server Requirement
To work with the API and backend server, a MySQL database is required. Install a MySQL server on your local machine, or you can always play around with our production API server over at api.gateway.cash.
After you've installed MySQL, create a blank database and a new user with full permissions over the database. Make sure your SQL database is running while you work.
Ruby and Bundler
In order to build the documentation websites (yes, we have multiple), you will
need to install Ruby and Bundler. Once you've installed Ruby, simply run
gem install bundler before you build the project.
NodeJS and Yarn
# cd to your projects folder cd ~/projects # clone the repo git clone https://github.com/gatewaycash/gateway.git # cd to the repository root cd gateway # install dependencies yarn # set up the database (if you plan on working with the API) yarn setup # [follow the prompts] # first-time developers answer YES to set up a new database # fire up your editor and start coding! yarn dev

Issues and Pull Requests
Always feel free to open an issue. Issues are how discussions get started and how bugs get resolved. If you see something wrong or some room for improvement, please don't hesitate to open an issue and be the one to start the discussion.
Pull requests should serve to make the changes discussed in an issue. If a discussion has taken place in the issue and it looks like something you want to be responsible for, self-assign the issue and start a pull request.
Questions and Concerns
Feel free to send email to firstname.lastname@example.org with any ideas, questions or feedback. If you'd like to become a contributor, join the ambassador.cash Discord server and chat with us in the #gatewaycash channel.
Weekly Community & Development Meetings
There are weekly community meetings to discuss development, ideas and tech every Saturday at 9AM PST (17:00 UTC) in the Discord server voice channel. All parties are welcome.
Gateway is accepting donations to fund development, accelerate adoption and pay bounties to developers who work on certain tasks. Donations are made and bounties are paid in Bitcoin Cash (or Bitcoin SV, while supplies last).
Our donation and bounty payout address is a secure two-of-three multisignature address controlled by prominent contributors to the project.
