Quickstart by language
Stripe’s server-side helper libraries (also known as server-side SDKs) and command-line interface (CLI) allow you to interact with Stripe’s REST APIs. Start with the Stripe CLI and make Stripe API calls without writing a line of code. Use the SDKs to avoid writing boilerplate code. To start sending requests from your environment, choose a language to follow a quickstart guide.
In this quickstart, you install the Stripe CLI—an essential tool that gets you command line access to your Stripe integration. You also install the Stripe Ruby server-side SDK to get access to Stripe APIs from applications written in Ruby.
