NanoBrowserQuest — Technical guide for accepting nano payments

  • Database: Redis
  • Server: Nodejs & Typescript
  • Client: jQuery, Typescript & Webpack
  • If you peg your items prices to fiat, you’ll have to poll a pricing API (like CoinGecko) at regular intervals and handle the case where the API is not responding or having a fallback solution. Like displaying a “Shop not available” to your users or try a second API like CMC
  • Websocket disconnects, re-add listeners for the ongoing payment sessions
  • You could consider adding a manual “Verify transaction” button in your interface that does a RPC call on the deposit account for the last transaction history in case the socket was disconnected at the exact time the transaction was recorded on the nano node
  • Logging the customer journey though your payment flow is very important for successes and failures handling to keep improving robustness
  • If you are building for the long term, an automated and complete test suite is vital to preserve functionality in-between releases. Don’t only aim for 90–100% coverage but also testing all the possible outcomes. Most of the time you’ll end up finding bugs while writing tests
  • Reporting and monitoring tools for medium to large scale projects. You want to be alerted as soon as the payment system emits a failure to be able to display a notification to your players and provide a fix when possible
