Ripple Trade client


The Ripple Trade client is an open-source GUI for the Ripple network that facilitates the peer-to-peer exchange of any store of value. It’s the only platform where you can trade between stores of value spanning fiat, cryptocurrencies, commodities, and unusual assets like pre-1965 silver dimes.

Ripple Labs is the core team behind the project. For more information on the Ripple protocol, please visit our wiki.

We would love to have folks contribute! Check out our bounties here.

Ripple Trade is available at www.rippletrade.com.

Getting Started

Install Dependencies

Install Node.js, Gulp, Git and Python 2 if you haven't already.

Install bower by running sudo bower install --allow-root.

Fork and clone the ripple-client repository and run npm install.

Create a new config.js file and copy/paste from config-example.js into the same directory.


Run 'gulp' in your command line for development.

Run 'gulp dist' for the production ready client.

Your web client is in the 'build/dist/' directory.

Target backend

By default, the ripple.txt file is pointed at the staging server. This means you will only be able to log in on your dev environment with an account created on staging.rippletrade.com.

If you want to point your environment at the production server:
