ATB Core integration/staging tree
What is ATBCoin?
ATBCoin is an experimental digital currency that enables instant payments to anyone, anywhere in the world. ATBCoin uses peer-to-peer technology to operate with no central authority: managing transactions and issuing money are carried out collectively by the network. ATB Core is the name of open source software which enables the use of this currency.
master branch is regularly built and tested, but is not guaranteed to be
The contribution workflow is described in CONTRIBUTING.md.
Developer IRC can be found on Freenode at #ATBCoin-core-dev.
Testing and code review is the bottleneck for development; we get more pull requests than we can review and test on short notice. Please be patient and help out by testing other people's pull requests, and remember this is a security-critical project where any mistake might cost people lots of money.
Developers are strongly encouraged to write unit tests for new code, and to
submit new unit tests for old code. Unit tests can be compiled and run
(assuming they weren't disabled in configure) with:
There are also regression and integration tests of the RPC interface, written
in Python, that are run automatically on the build server.
These tests can be run (if the test dependencies are installed) with:
The Travis CI system makes sure that every pull request is built for Windows, Linux, and OS X, and that unit/sanity tests are run automatically.
Manual Quality Assurance (QA) Testing
Changes should be tested by somebody other than the developer who wrote the code. This is especially important for large or high-risk changes. It is useful to add a test plan to the pull request description if testing the changes is not straightforward.
