TRUSTLINES

To set a trust line easily with ripple-REST:

POST to https://xagate.com:5990 /v1/accounts/rGgS5Hw3PhSp3VNT43PDTXze9YfdthHUH/trustlines?validated=true

	{
	  "secret": "sn3nxiW7v8KXzPzAqzyHXbSSKNuN9",
	  "trustline": {
	  "limit": "10",
	  "currency": "XAG",
	  "counterparty": "rGgS5Hw3PhSp3VNT43PDTXze9YfdthHUH",
	  "account_allows_rippling": false
	  }
	}

https://ripple.com/build/ripple-rest/#grant-trustline will give you more information on these fields. The response should be:

		{
			"success": true,
			"trustline": {
			"account": "rf1BiGeXwwQoi8Z2ueFYTEXSwuJYfV2Jpn",
			"limit": "10",
			"currency": "XAG",
			"counterparty": "rGgS5Hw3PhSp3VNT43PDTXze9YfdthHUH",
			"account_allows_rippling": false,
			"account_trustline_frozen": false,
			"state": "pending",
			"ledger": "9302926",
			"hash": "57695598CD32333F67A70DC6EBC3501D71569CE11C9803162CBA61990D89C1EE"
			}
		}

Where Counterparty is the Gateway's address. You can test using USD or any other ISO currency: https://wiki.ripple.com/Currency_format

GET BALANCES

Navigate to https://xagate.com:5990/v1/server to view more information about the QuickGatewayKit public ripple-REST server.
This will GET the server information via the /v1/server end-point. Do this first to see if the server is online.

Now navigate to https://xagate.com:5990/v1/accounts/rGgS5Hw3PhSp3VNT43PDTXze9YfdthHUH/balances
This is the /v1/accounts end-point for serving balances to the user. The /v1/accounts end-point has to specify which address it is querying, in this case, I'm querying what assests ~Xagate has issued and available on its account. The /balances portion of the URL tells ripple-REST that I want to specifically find balances.
If I had used https://xagate.com:5990/v1/accounts/rGgS5Hw3PhSp3VNT43PDTXze9YfdthHUH then ripple-REST does not know what I am requesting as there are multiple end-points for accounts. For example, the /settings end-point will tell you what this Ripple account's settings are I.E. https://xagate.com:5990/v1/accounts/rGgS5Hw3PhSp3VNT43PDTXze9YfdthHUH/settings will tell you that I have set a domain and this address requires you to use a destination tag when you send a payment to this account.

To get your account's balances, simply replace your address with my address and book-mark it to your Bookmarks bar in your web browser to fetch your balances.

SEND PAYMENTS

Install the Postman extension for chrome @ https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/postman/fhbjgbiflinjbdggehcddcbncdddomop?hl=en

Navigate to the Body tab. Click on the 'Raw' radio button. Set the mode from text to JSON (application/json).

Select the POST method beside the URL field. Input a ripple-REST server's end-point to POST to. In this example, I'm going to POST a payment from my Gateway's address to my Hotwallet.
We need to set what end-point we are using. For sending payments, we need to specify our Ripple address as well as the validated=true flag by inputting: https://xagate.com:5990/v1/accounts/rGgS5Hw3PhSp3VNT43PDTXze9YfdthHUH/payments?validated=true (remember to replace your ripple address!)

Within the body of the Postman client, we need to tell ripple-REST what settings are required. I will not go into detail about each field below, just the most necessary portions, the remainder of this documentation is found @ https://ripple.com/build/ripple-rest/#submit-payment

		{
		  "secret": "s...",
		  "client_resource_id": "91f708f0-e867-4fa2-8f29-4b989e744bff",
		  "last_ledger_sequence": "",
		  "max_fee": "0.1",
		  "fixed_fee": "0.01",
		  "payment": {
		    "source_account": "rGgS5Hw3PhSp3VNT43PDTXze9YfdthHUH",
		    "source_tag": "",
		    "source_amount": {
		      "value": "5.01",
		      "currency": "XRP",
		      "issuer": ""
		    },
		    "source_slippage": "0",
		    "destination_account": "rKYNhsT3aLymkGH7WL7ZUHkm6RE27iuM4C",
		    "destination_tag": "",
		    "destination_amount": {
		      "value": "5.01",
		      "currency": "XRP",
		      "issuer": ""
		    },
		    "invoice_id": "",
		    "partial_payment": false,
		    "no_direct_ripple": false
		  }
		}

The most important portions of this JSON payment object are:

secret: your secret key (I've obviously omitted mine) client_resource_id: 91f708f0-e867-4fa2-8f29-4b989e744bff - This is the unique ID number I've set for this payment, you can get a unique ID by GETTING it from https://xagate.com:5990/v1/uuid last_ledger_sequence: an optional field, include a ledger sequence here if you know what you are doing max_fee: the maximum amount of XRP to pay to the network to include this transaction in a new ledger, in this case, 0.1XRP. fixed_fee: the amount of XRP to pay to the network to include this transaction in the ledger, in this case, I will pay no less than 0.01XRP for this tx. source_account: the ripple address that I'm sending this transaction from, I.E. your ripple address which you replaced within https://xagate.com:5990/v1/accounts/rGgS5Hw3PhSp3VNT43PDTXze9YfdthHUH/payments?validated=true value: the amount I am sending, in this case, 5.01 XRP. issuer: blank if sending XRP, otherwise, include the Gateway's ripple address within this field. destination_account: the account receiving the payment, in this case, ~Twarden/rKYNhsT3aLymkGH7WL7ZUHkm6RE27iuM4C invoice_id: optional field, maximum of 64 hex characters

Note that the URL for this endpoint has .../payments?validated=true set within the URL.
This specific end-point when validated: true is set will respond using the format of https://ripple.com/build/ripple-rest/#confirm-payment

		  "ledger": "14656436",
		  "state": "validated"
		}

If validated is set to false or omitted, you will receive a response in the format of:

		{
		  "success": true,
		  "client_resource_id": "123",
		  "status_url": ".../v1/accounts/r1.../payments/123"
		}

Note the status URL field, this URL will allow you to GET with your web browser the payment's status.
