Introducing payments library for Elixir/Phoenix Framework.

We are thrilled to announce our latest open-source contribution, Gringotts: a payments library in Elixir & Phoenix framework.

We have been working with Elixir for quite some time now and in most of the projects that we have done in past we needed integrations with payment gateways.

Having used ActiveMerchant in past for all our payment gateway integration needs for Ruby on Rails projects we knew we had to come up with a solution for the Elixir world as well. This is something which was missing from the Elixir world.

We decided to build a library similar to ActiveMerchant. Hence, Gringotts was born.

Please visit the github project page for more info about the project and the number of gateways supported so far. We are also working hard on keeping the docs for the library as descriptive as possible. Ratio for number of lines of docs to code is 3:1.

We need community to step in and help drive the project forward by contributing in any way possible. Good way to start with are community help labelled issues.

We are trying to make the wiki as useful as possible for first time contributors. Please check all the pages in the wiki. Feel free to reach out to us on the Gitter channel to chat with the core team.

We have a roadmap for what’s coming in the library and what to expect from it.
