We pay sats for PRs. Sats will be proportional to the impact of the PR. If there's something you'd like to work on, suggest how much you'd do it for on the issue. If there's something you'd like to work on that isn't already an issue, whether its a bug fix or a new feature, create one.
We aim to have a quick PR turnaround time, but we are sometimes slower than we'd like. In most cases, if your PR is unambiguously good, it shouldn't take us more than 1 week.
If you have a question about contributing start a discussion.
If you found a vulnerability, we would greatly appreciate it if you contact us via email@example.com or t.me/k00bideh.
Stacker News is like Hacker News but we pay you Bitcoin. We use Bitcoin and the Lightning Network to provide Sybil resistance and any karma earned is withdrawable as Bitcoin.
We're experimenting with providing an SN-like service on nostr in Outer Space. It's our overarching goal to align SN with Bitcoin's ethos yet still make a product the average bitcoiner loves to use.
- Install docker-compose and deps if you don't already have it installed
git clone firstname.lastname@example.org:stackernews/stacker.news.git sn && cd sn
docker-compose up --build
You should then be able to access the site at
localhost:3000 and any changes you make will hot reload. If you want to login locally or use lnd you'll need to modify
.env.sample appropriately. More details here and here. If you have trouble please open an issue so I can help and update the README for everyone else.
To enable Web Push locally, you will need to set the
VAPID_* env vars.
VAPID_MAILTO needs to be an email address using the
mailto: scheme. For
VAPID_PRIVKEY, you can run
npx web-push generate-vapid-keys.
To configure the image proxy, you will need to set the
IMGPROXY_ env vars.
NEXT_PUBLIC_IMGPROXY_URL needs to point to the image proxy service.
IMGPROXY_SALT can be set using
openssl rand -hex 64.
There are two. 1. the web app and 2. the worker, which dequeues jobs sent to it by the web app, e.g. polling lnd for invoice/payment status
wallet transaction safety
To ensure stackers balances are kept sane, all wallet updates are run in serializable transactions at the database level. Because prisma has relatively poor support for transactions all wallet touching code is written in plpgsql stored procedures and can be found in the prisma/migrations folder.
The code is linted with standardjs.
