Summary0004774: create dummy-frontend to make testing of the backend easy by the sysadmin
DescriptionWe should create a proper dummy frontend that allows the sysadmin to fully test that his setup is correct, without having him write a frontend (or install additional software, except for the wallet).
TagsNo tags attached.

The payments generator does test the backend's installation.
Can we consider this resolved?

Interesting idea of using it that way. Can you update the backend operator texi-manual to include using the payment generator for verification that the backend works? After all, assuming the generator does all we want (quite plausible), the last step to addressing this issue was always to document it ;-)

Ah, not quite so fast. There are a few things to improve just looking at the doc.

(1) the '-c' option should never be mandatory. If not given ~/.config/taler.conf should be used (usually, the GNUnet/Taler getopt-logic does that automatically)

(2) I do not even understand why '-r' is needed or what the distinction between local/remote exchange _is_, given that we given the exchange's URI.

(3) given that we point to '', the currency in the sample configuration file should be PUDOS.

(4) How exactly does the test use the bank to withdraw coins!? I didn't think we had an API for that already. Did I miss something? knows of no API for this, so if it exists, please document! (See also 0004129)

As of (4), there is no bank involved in the process: the generator just calls TALER_EXCHANGE_admin_add_incoming ().

The perfect setup would be to have the exchange polling the bank and creating the reserve once it gets some money,
but this is not implemented yet. 0004964 tracks the bank side of this.

That said, can we close this?

Yeah, I guess so.
