  • I also filed a [feature request](https://github.com/codidact/qpixel/issues/747) to make donations optional. This here is more like the bug report and for quick fixes.

How to circumvent Stripe::AuthenticationError: No API key provided
I want to setup a local QPixel instance (WSL - Ubuntu 20.04) and am following the [guide](https://collab.codidact.org/posts/280451) by luap42.

Finally I get an error `Stripe::AuthenticationError: No API key provided. Set your API key using "Stripe.api_key = <API-KEY>".` in DonationsControllerTest.

This is probably related to the donation box and specific for Codidact, not really needed for QPixel. While it's nice that QPixel can have a donation possibility via Stripe, for my local development I would rather keep it optional, i.e. I would prefer if QPixel can be configured to work without donations.

Is there a quick fix to work around that error (without needing to get an API key from Stripe)?
