Spree Extension enabling Coinbase as a payment method. Goal is to make this the spree_gateway of Bitcoin payments.

For a more tested and supported solution, see the official Spree Coinbase Plugin. I would like to delegate to their extension now that they have an official release instead.

WARNING: This is still a work in progress & should be tested before Production use.


Add spree_bitcoin to your Gemfile:

gem 'spree_bitcoin', github: 'jdutil/spree_bitcoin'

Bundle your dependencies and run the installation generator:

bundle exec rails g spree_bitcoin:install


Be sure to bundle your dependencies and then create a dummy test app for the specs to run against.

bundle exec rake test_app
bundle exec rspec spec

When testing your applications integration with this extension you may use it's factories.
Simply add this require statement to your spec_helper:

require 'spree_bitcoin/factories'
