Steam Backend Service

The purpose of this repository is to demonstrate how to make the necessary backend calls to Steam to support things like microtransactions/purchases.

To be able to run this locally you need to:

  • Generate a SteamWorks API key
  • Have a valid Steam App ID provided by Steamworks (this is the id that represents your game)

Setting up and running locally

Install go

First you need to install golang:

Download dependencies

make deps

Create config

Create a new config.env file that matches config.env.sample and replace the values as necessary.

Run the service

make run

Hit the service

curl -X POST \
  http://localhost:8090/v1/api/microtxn/initTxn \
  -H 'cache-control: no-cache' \
  -H 'content-type: application/x-www-form-urlencoded' \
  -d 'SteamAccountID=76561198006253851&OrderID=100002&ItemID=1'
