Forage is an open source Material Design geocaching Android app using MVP architecture and modern libraries. Forage integrates with the OpenCaching API.
This project is currently under heavy development!
This is my first Android project in order to learn the Android SDK and relevant Android libraries. Please critique my code! If you are just starting with Android check out this wiki page for a comphrensive list of learning resources that I used.
- Dagger 2
- Retrofit 2
- RxJava and RxAndroid
- Signpost and OkHttp-Signpost
- Material Dialogs
- Google Support Libraries
- Google Play Location Services
- Google Play Maps
To compile and run the project you’ll need:
- Android SDK
- Android N (API 24)
- Android SDK Tools
- Android SDK Build Tools
- Android Support Repository
- Android Support Libraries
- JDK 1.8
- Valid API keys
API keys are not stored in the repo! Thus, you will need the following API keys:
Add the following to your global
gradle.properties file. On OSX this file is stored at
OKAPI_US_CONSUMER_KEY=PUT OKAPI CONSUMER KEY HERE OKAPI_US_CONSUMER_SECRET=PUT OKAPI CONSUMER SECRET HERE GOOGLE_MAPS_API_KEY=PUT GOOGLE MAPS KEY HERE
A release build needs to be signed with an Android Keystore. The easiest way to generate one is to open
Android Studio and go to
Build -> Generate Signed Apk -> Create New... After that you need to create a
signing.properties file in the root directory and add the following info to it:
STORE_FILE=/path/to/your.keystore STORE_PASSWORD=yourkeystorepass KEY_ALIAS=projectkeyalias KEY_PASSWORD=keyaliaspassword
gradle assembleRelease will then build and sign a release version of the app.
