A codespace is a cloud-based development environment. You can collaborate, build, and test code in a codespace.
With the PayPal GitHub Codespace, you can:
- Get started quickly with a checkout application.
- Run sample applications with your PayPal app’s client ID and secret.
- Launch PayPal integrations in a developer container with all dependencies installed.
- Bypass setting up and configuring your local development environment.
- Modify sample code and test changes.
See GitHub Codespaces documentation for more information on codespaces.
Select the following button:
Configure your codespace to your development environment. To run your own sample application in a codespace, paste your app’s client ID in
CLIENT_ID and secret in
APP_SECRET. Complete the steps in Get started with PayPal APIs to get your app’s client ID and secret from the Developer Dashboard.
Codespaces sets up your development environment, installs required software, and starts the server automatically. Enable pop-ups for codespaces to open the server in a new tab.
In your application tab, refresh to see your changes. If you closed the application tab:
- Select the Ports tab in Visual Studio Code.
- Hover over the Local Address value for the running port.
- Select the sphere icon to open in your browser.
