The previous donate server was decommissioned and we’re moving donate to a server under our control. We need people to test the new instance. I’ve done extensive testing (and of course there is unit test coverage) but it’s not the same as getting some good black-box testing.
Please use the stripe testing cards:
There is a testing instance here:
Please do all combinations of things as you can.
Logging is on, but in some cases you might get a traceback. if you can copy it and post it, that would be great. If you know the combination of inputs which caused the issue, and you can reproduce it, including that information is amazing.
The input data just has to be sane, it doesn’t need to be real, e.g. the email address just needs firstname.lastname@example.org format.
we really want to cut over to production on Thursday, so the more testing we can do by that would be very helpful. If you have any questions or issues, let me know.
I tried to donate $4,000,000 using the test card but got an error:
Internal Server Error
The server encountered an internal error and was unable to complete your request. Either the server is overloaded or there is an error in the application.
I managed to test donate up to $100,000 which I imagine is the most we can hope for through Stripe anyway… At that point, getting the money without paying insane stripe fees would be better.
TypeError: InvalidRequestError(message=‘Amount must be no more than $999,999.99’, param=‘amount’, code=‘amount_too_large’, http_status=400, request_id=‘req_FB6kWyucCgRy7b’) is not JSON serializable
However, you shouldn’t have gotten the server error. That happened because of the same issue Julee faced where there is an attempt to serial the CardError which throws the Type Error. That will be fixed as part of #12 as well.
We haven’t migrated the old database yet. The data in the database is backed up, but the project functionality will be restored after the donation taking is done.
The logic is there, I prefer to put minimum functionality into production first, then enhance it after a quiet period. Once taking donations and subscriptions is back, old features will come back and some new features will be added.
