  • Ask HN: What are some well-designed websites?
    12 projects | | 7 Sep 2023
    For me Stripe is the peak for a product/company website:

    I heard some people admire but I don't see the appeal myself

    Majority of websites often fall into one of two categories:

    1. Traditional off the shelf template

    2. Look cool but fail when it comes to usability and robustness (those featured on awwwards)

  • How to Process Stripe Subscriptions In Your Serverless Apps

    You could have the best service in the world, but if you have a payment gateway that leaves people feeling uncomfortable, you'll lose them. Not only that, but you have PCI compliance you would need to deal with and a slew of other things that are handled for you with a payment vendor like Stripe, Square, or PayPal.
  • Using Stripe to Implement Payment handling on a website
    3 projects | | 21 Jul 2023
    First you'll want to go to Stripe's website and setup an account. Then install Stripe with pip install stripe. In this example I'm using Flask for the backend and React for the frontend. The website is an e-commerce page for buying and selling skateboards. Now create some models for the product to sell and the receipts then run flask db init, flask db migrate, and flask db upgrade to create the database. My models look like so:

    I've spent my fair share of time in Silicon Valley on some of the coolest startups in the tech scene. So, a lot of our inspiration comes from companies like Stripe (e.g. their landing page) and Linear (e.g. their gradient usage). And, the data display architecture you're referencing (down to the layout on shift on screen sizes) is almost a perfect clone of the NBA's. And there's definitely a team there that costs 7 figures who has researched every nook and cranny about making that the most optimal layout haha.

    Look, absolutely millions of people are going to type credit card numbers into and and this year and nobody will get their credentials stolen or their credit card compromised. I mean, far far fewer then from the waiter or checkout person taking a quick photo of your credit card while they run it through the Point of Sale device physically.

    Toast uses SSL. So does Stripe ( and so does Square ( Everybody, without fail now uses HTTPS (SSL), they really do. That ship sailed. If you use the Chrome web browser, anything not serving up puppy pictures over HTTPS says "Not Secure" for the last HALF DECADE. If you google "PCI compliance" it's literally THE LAW that it is required for handling credit cards. Anybody not using HTTPS will get fined, and probably go to jail. The embarrassment of the programmers getting caught not using HTTPS would be amazing, like they would have trouble ever getting another job programming computers.

  • Injections in Stripe Search Queries and How to Prevent Them
    2 projects | | 24 May 2023
    I was developing a backend that integrates Stripe to manage customers and to process subscriptions. In one use case, it should search for user input in the metadata of Stripe subscriptions. When I looked up the documentation about how to use the search functionality I came across the Search Query Language. It looked like users could easily inject their own additional query clauses. After a simple check: Yes, e.g. for the user input "124' OR status:'active" all active subscriptions are returned as well.
