Installation

The recommended way to use this Stripe Sample is with the Stripe CLI:

stripe samples create accept-a-payment

You can also clone the repository, but there is a bit more manual setup work to configure the .env environment variable file in the server directory.

You'll find more detailed instructions for each integration type in the relevant READMEs:


FAQ

Q: Why did you pick these frameworks?

A: We chose the most minimal framework to convey the key Stripe calls and concepts you need to understand. These demos are meant as an educational tool that helps you roadmap how to integrate Stripe within your own system independent of the framework.

Testing

See TESTING.md.

Running samples with Dev Containers or Codespaces

We provide Dev Container configurations for most of the sample apps for web. For the Visual Studio Code example, by hitting Reopen in Containers in the Command Pallete and choosing a sample from the options prompted, dedicated Docker containers for the sample will be automatically created.

You can also try these samples even without installing Docker on your machine by using GitHub Codespaces. A sample app codespace can be created by clicking "New with options..." below and choosing a sample app from the Dev container configuration select box. Note that in this case, you would be charged for usage of GitHub Codespaces.

Running server app samples

After launching the environment, a couple of setup steps would be needed to launch the web app. For the NodeJS (custom-payment-flow-server-node) example:

  1. Export the required environment variables
    1. export STRIPE_PUBLISHABLE_KEY=XXXX
    2. export STRIPE_SECRET_KEY=XXXX
    3. export PRICE=XXXX
  2. Install the dependencies and run the web server. For NodeJS example, npm install && npm run start

You can also run some tests for the server app by the following steps. This example is a little hacky as we need to use SSH to run a test command in another container (runner).

  1. Run ssh-keygen and chmod 600 ~/.ssh/*
  2. Login to the test runner service with ssh runner
  3. Move to the working dir with cd /work
  4. Export the required environment variables
    1. export $(cat .devcontainer/.env | xargs)
    2. export STRIPE_PUBLISHABLE_KEY=XXXX
    3. export STRIPE_SECRET_KEY=XXXX
    4. export PRICE=XXXX
  5. Run tests like bundle exec rspec spec/custom_payment_flow_server_spec.rb

Running client app samples

After launching the environment, a couple of setup steps would be needed to launch the app. For the Create React App (custom-payment-flow-client-react-cra) example:

  1. Export the required environment variables
    1. export STRIPE_PUBLISHABLE_KEY=XXXX
    2. export STRIPE_SECRET_KEY=XXXX
    3. export PRICE=XXXX
  2. Install the dependencies and run the node web server by running cd ../../server/node && npm install && npm run start
  3. In another terminal, install the dependencies and run the client app by running npm install && npm start
