About this template

This application utilizes Flask for the backend and JavaScript with Stripe API for the frontend. It allows users to test various Stripe functionalities such as adding a card to a customer, creating a charge, and retrieving customer details. The backend interacts with the Stripe API using the stripe library, while the frontend provides a simple form for users to input their Stripe API secret and an optional customer ID. Upon submitting the form, the frontend sends a POST request to the backend, which then executes the specified tests and returns the results to be displayed on the page.

Introduction to the Stripe API Integration Tester Template

Welcome to the Stripe API Integration Tester Template! This template is designed to help you test Stripe API integrations with ease. It provides a web-based interface where you can input your Stripe API secret and optionally a customer ID to run a series of tests, such as adding a card to a customer and creating a charge. This step-by-step guide will walk you through using the template on the Lazy platform.

Getting Started

To begin using this template, simply click on "Start with this Template" on the Lazy platform. This will pre-populate the code in the Lazy Builder interface, so you won't need to copy, paste, or delete any code.

Initial Setup

Before you can test the Stripe API, you'll need to set up an environment secret for the test customer ID. Here's how to do it:

  • Log in to your Stripe dashboard and navigate to the "Customers" section.
  • Create a new customer or use an existing one and copy the customer ID.
  • Go to the Environment Secrets tab within the Lazy Builder.
  • Create a new secret with the key TEST_CUSTOMER_ID and paste the customer ID as the value.

Test: Pressing the Test Button

Once you have set up the environment secret, press the "Test" button on the Lazy platform. This will begin the deployment of the app and launch the Lazy CLI.

Entering Input

After pressing the "Test" button, the Lazy App's CLI interface will appear, prompting you to provide the Stripe API secret. You can obtain your API secret key from your Stripe dashboard under the "Developers" section. Copy the secret key and paste it into the CLI when prompted.

Using the App

After providing the necessary input, Lazy will print a dedicated server link for you to use the API. Navigate to this link in your web browser to access the Stripe API Integration Tester interface.

Here's how to use the interface:

  • Enter your Stripe API secret into the "API Secret" field.
  • If you have a specific customer ID you want to use, enter it into the "Customer ID" field. Otherwise, leave it blank, and a test customer will be created for you.
  • Click the "Run Tests" button to execute the tests.
  • The test results will be displayed on the page, indicating whether each test passed or failed.

Integrating the App

If you wish to integrate this testing functionality into another service or frontend, you can use the provided endpoints and JavaScript code. For example, you can send a POST request to the /update_info endpoint with the API secret and customer ID to run the tests programmatically.

Here's a sample request you might use:


POST /update_info
Content-Type: application/x-www-form-urlencoded

apiSecret=your_stripe_api_secret&customerId=optional_customer_id

And a sample response could look like this:


{
    "CardAdded": true,
    "ChargeCreated": true,
    "CustomerDetailsRetrieved": true
}

Remember to replace your_stripe_api_secret with your actual Stripe API secret and optional_customer_id with the customer ID you wish to test with, if any.

By following these steps, you can easily test and integrate Stripe API functionality using the Lazy platform.
