- What did you learn yesterday?

- What do you expect to learn?
Yesterday I started out trying to make a customer in Stripe so I could save a credit card and use it again. I got a bug that I couldn’t figure out, so I decided to move on and make the order confirmation page, which took forever because of lots of little bugs that had to be fixed along the way. I ended the day with the same bug I had started it with, only reached through a very roundabout path. Sigh. But I got the confirmation page working! It’s tricky to test, because I have to put all the info (name, address, email, cc number, etc) in every time, and I have it set to destroy the cart once payment has gone through, so if anything breaks in that process I have to go back and redo the entire thing. So tedious.
Today I am going to hopefully finish working on creating a customer and saving a credit card. The flow for this project seems weird to me, according to the tests I should have a cart, a checkout page (where you put credit card details), a confirmation page *and* an order summary page. Oh, and it sends an email. This seems redundant to me, but maybe there’s some reason for it? I think I’ll ask Brandon his thoughts and maybe that’ll be a step I won’t have to take. I’m so close to being done!
Part of the thing that was confusing me yesterday about saving a credit card was that I have to make a customer (to associate with the cc, which makes sense), but I’m not sure if I have to make a user to go along with that. Or…now that I look at my code, I already have a user model but I don’t have a controller. Soooo maybe I’m just confused. Anyway, I expect to learn what that’s all about and hopefully get that untangled.
Also, if any of the people who read this are in Durham, be sure to vote today!
