[LRUG] Stripe endpoint for static site?

Hi all,

I managed to set up a Stripe button on my Github Pages site at
http://jessewaites.com/author/jesse/ (It was a pain getting the button to
render properly with kramdown or whatever flavor of Markdown Jekyll uses)

My needs are this:

Have Stripe process the transaction. If the charge goes through
successfully, send them to a particular URL (in my case, a link to the PDF
in my Google Drive - I tried hosting the PDF on my own site but Github
Pages won't display raw PDFs - thats a whole different conversation)

If the charge does NOT go through successfully, send them to a static page
on my site that says "Hey something goofed up, try again"

I found this https://github.com/christophercliff/heroku-stripe-checkout
which seems to be perfect, except for the fact that the developer
deprecated it in favor of working on a full ecommerce solution called
"flatmarket" https://github.com/christophercliff/flatmarket-server-heroku

There is a fork of the original heroku stripe checkout here:

But I am getting forwarded to the "bad" URL on what appears to be a
successful transaction. I should probably poke around that forked repo and
see if I can sort something out but I've already dumped a few days into
this and thought maybe I'm going about it the wrong way.

But now that I've worked on this a little bit I feel like this must be a
common need and it seems it should be rather simple to get that simple
logic going. (Good transaction go here, bad transaction go here)

Anyone have any thoughts or suggestions?
