Braintree Go

GoDoc Build Status

A Go client library for Braintree, the payments company behind awesome companies like GitHub, Heroku, and 37signals.

This is not an official client library. Braintree maintains server-side libraries for Ruby, Python, PHP, Perl, Node, C# and Java, but not Go. This package implements the core functionality of the other client libraries, but it's missing a few advanced features.

With that said, this package contains more than enough to get you started accepting payments using Braintree. If there's a feature the other client libraries implement that you really need, open an issue (or better yet, a pull request).

Usage

Setting up your credentials is easy.

import "github.com/lionelbarrow/braintree-go"

bt := braintree.New(
  braintree.Sandbox,
  "YOUR_BRAINTREE_MERCH_ID",
  "YOUR_BRAINTREE_PUB_KEY",
  "YOUR_BRAINTREE_PRIV_KEY",
)

So is creating your first transaction.

tx, err := bt.Transaction().Create(&braintree.Transaction{
  Type: "sale",
  Amount: 100,
  CreditCard: &braintree.CreditCard{
    Number:         "41111111111111111",
    ExpirationDate: "05/14",
  },
})

The error returned by these calls is typed. The package returns a generic error when something mechanical goes wrong, such as receiving malformed XML or being unable to connect to the Braintree gateway. However, if Braintree was able to process the request correctly, but was unable to fulfill it due to a semantic failure (such as the credit card being declined) then a BraintreeError type is returned.

In addition to creating transactions, you can also tokenize credit card information for repeat or subscription billing using the CreditCard, Customer, and Subscription types. This package is completely compatible with Braintree.js, so if you encrypt your customers' credit cards in the browser, you can pass them on to Braintree without ever seeing them yourself. This decreases your PCI regulatory exposure and helps to secure your users' data. See the examples folder for a working implementation.

Installation

The usual. go get github.com/lionelbarrow/braintree-go

Documentation

Braintree provides a ton of documentation on how to use their API. I recommend you use the Ruby documentation when following along, as the Ruby client library is broadly similar to this one.

For details on this package, see GoDoc.

Testing

The integration tests run against a sandbox account created in the Braintree Sandbox. See TESTING.md for further instructions on how to set up your sandbox for integration testing.
