I've decided to fully opensource the code behind Bitcoin Central.

Someone (he'll make his name public if he wishes) specifically requested it and donated a respectable amount of bitcoins to make it happen.

The source has already been released to this person and will be publicly released under the AGPL Free Software Foundation license on February 1st.

If you are a Rails developer and you want to study/improve the code behind Bitcoin Central feel free to send me a PM or an e-mail at support@bitcoin-central.net in order to get early access to the source tree.

Hopefully, this move will help build a better platform for everyone to use in setting up local/global exchanges, and in the long run, improve the bitcoin economy and awareness as a whole.

Hopefully it will also bring a much tougher competition to the bitcoin trading/exchange market Smiley

It will also enable Rails developers like me to collect bounties on specific feature requests.

I have to say I'm really really proud of the work I did and I hope others will find it useful and contribute to it !

This is nice.

I've also released my website source (just click the link "voir la source" on the bottom of the page).

I think the more exchange plateforms we have, the better !

Nice job davout. I think it would qualify for the bounty if everyone agrees.

Yes.  It's the only language I can use for free on freeshell.org.

I like it.  It might have some performance problems if my site is much visited, but it's fun to write.

I'm a total noob at bash scripting, it looks like a very manly way to code xD

It's just GPL without the web service loophole.

I am that donor.  Feel free to mention me...  I am just trying to help out the bitcoin community.

Bitcoin needs an open source currency exchange site, to make it easier for others to open, for example, a Bitcoin-to-Polish-zloty exchange.

Seriously, what you've done davout is great.  Releasing the source code for such as wevsite is great.

I won't donate because I'm too selfish.  But I will take part in this and I've already add a few bitcoins to my account.  I'll probably give up my own site.  Just because yours is better.

Now, one question : why can't we have a proper presentation for the book order ?   Decreasing bids on left, and increasing asks on right ?   We actually don't care about the time an order has been sent.


It should look like what I wrote once about order books on issuepedia :

Your positive comments can count as donations.

You can, I just have to code it up.

Thanks, I'll use it as a useful example !

Good, good.

Now, you definitly should make one book for LRUSD, and an other one for LREUR.  Possibly one for EURcash and USDcash if you have any.

Otherwise, congratulations and thanks.  This is getting pretty nice.

Good job if you've opened the source, but what the hell? Where is it?

Can you put it on git (upload to github?) so we start forking it?

jgarzik- you're the best. I've seen you making lots of donations around here and helping build the bitcoin economy. Good job.

It looks great, but only when the browser gets almost my whole large screen, otherwise they start to overlap.

Move to first post, read first post.

Done.

Maybe a little, shouldn't it drop below if it can't fit though? The currency selector buttons do, though not exactly correctly. The radio buttons should stick with their titles, not get separated. They aren't a problem until I scrunch it way narrow though so I wouldn't worry much about that, just using it for comparison.

Guess I should look a little more into low-res issues Smiley

Howso?
