Merchant Library Specs

We built the Button open-source library with the key questions we hear from our partners in mind. In particular:

  • It's completely open-source
  • No third party dependencies
    • Note: Android uses Support Library and Google Play services
  • 100% functional test coverage
  • Strict semantically versioned releases
  • MIT Licensed
