@atenorio Sounds like you're looking for server-side browser extension help, but if any client-side browser extension dev is being done, feel free to check our repo for Akita github.com/esse-dev/akita. @elliot and I are happy to chat if you have any questions!

Also here's Coil's open source code for their extension: github.com/coilhq/web-monetization...

Thanks Sharon!

Yes, we need help from the server-side part of the extension, any idea who could help?

We are using the Coil's open source code you shared, the problem is that we cannot get the server-side implementation, and if it is not Open Source, we would love some support to implement an Open version ourselves.

PS: We love what your project has done, looks really neat!

Hi Ambar,

I'm afraid @sharon and I don't know of anyone who is working on a server-side implementation... But we invite you to come to the upcoming virtual informal grantee hangout event, maybe you could meet someone who knows something there.

Hi @atenorio , I have extracted a MVP extension from the Coil extension. I hope it can be a helpful reference.

GitHub logo sidvishnoi / wm-firefox-extension-coil

WebMonetization extension (for Coil) to demonstrate native WebMonetization support at https://github.com/sidvishnoi/gecko-webmonetization/

Although the extension makes use of experimental web monetization browser extension APIs (see background.js), the rest of the code can be used almost as is. Feel free to ping me if you've questions.

Thanks @sid , very useful project!

We are struggling from the server-side, as we want to implement the GraphQL API Coil provides, but we cannot find the server-side implementation. Do you know where we could find help for this?

Thanks a lot

I think the Coil GraphQL API would be proprietary. @adrianhopebailie could tell more.
