I'd like to share a side project that I've been working on for a bit: https://www.overblock.dev

This website lets you buy fake items using the Lightning network on testnet. You could do this to test your Lightning wallet, or to give yourself some inbound liquidity on the testnet Lightning network while developing.

These were some of my goals for the project:
- Gain familiarity setting up Bitcoin and Lightning nodes
- Write a ground-up project using microservices and containers
- Build a Lightning reference app for myself, so that if/when I want to make something real, I'll have an existing project to use as a guide
- Successfully deploy such a project to a cloud environment (in this case, Google Cloud)
- Open source the project with guides so that others can use it as a resource, too

To interact with the site you need a testnet Lightning wallet. Acinq has Eclair Mobile Testnet available in the Play store on Android. You can use a testnet faucet to get some coins in this wallet, and then play with the site.

You can find the source code here: https://github.com/cilphex/overblock

It's very impressive, do you work it alone? I take a look at the GitHub and the documentation / guide is quite detailed.

I checked the website, but couldn't click button "Buy it". Is it intentional?

Thank you! Yes, alone, just a personal project.

Hm, that should not be the case. You should be able to click buy and make a lightning payment on the site. I just tested myself and I believe it's working.

I tried it again, but now i could click "Buy it" button. I don't try LN payment though since i currently don't hold any tBTC.
