Hey Thomas,

In fact, I went through the steps to setup such a small scale setup was part of the WICMP[1] hacker event and documented them[2]. This setup guide also contains some gotchas like "Android blocks HTTP traffic for apps".

My setup takes some shortcuts regarding system security but should get you running quickly. (Last tested in December 2022, highly subject to bit rot).

In case you're a german speaker, I held a talk about it (describing the setup in the last third) (video[3], slides[4]).

Would be happy to see my setup guide influence a properly maintained howto :).

I'm not a software developer, but following this list after the article about GNU Taler in CT (German computer journal).

May question is:
Could it be possible to make a tutorial for a little (but whole) example of "circulating money ecosystem" with Taler?
What I mean. Since Covid a lot of people, groups got somehow acquainted with installing videoconference serves like BigBlueButton, Cloud administration, Nextcloud etc.
And this kind of groups/people e.g. eco village communities etc. – as I think – could be interested in trying out Taler system with e.g. there own ideas and needs of money.

For example:
A vending machine running with Taler, would it be possible to produce something like a "step by step" tutorial? Which can be used by semipro administrators? I don’t mean focus on that level on security, the vending machine etc. But on a whole system. How the customer gets the "Taler" money, how to spend it, how it gets to the merchant...
Or does it make no sense, because too complicated for semipro, too much hacking/maker skills required?

If its somehow realistic and if someone would like to do kind of tutorial for "semipro's", I would like to donate for that work. :))

What use is GNU Taler if it is just another tech make-up on
top of a corrupting and corrupt credit/ledger system?

GNU Taler is agnostic to such questions. You can use it with the current “FIAT” currencies where money is created by credit, or with crypto currencies where money is mined, or with YOUR money system where money always serves the people and not rich investors.
Please establish such a system and we will support it in GNU Taler.
