Getting Started

These instructions will get you a copy of the project up and running on your local machine ready for development. If you want to help developing the app take a look to the contributing section, at the end.

Development environment setup

We use Android Studio (the official Android IDE) for development, so we recommend it as the IDE to use in your development environment. Once you install Android Studio, you can use the Android SDK Manager to obtain the SDK tools, platforms, and other components you will need to start developing. The most important are:

  • Android SDK Tools and Android SDK Platform-tools (upgrade to their last versions is usually a good idea).
  • Android SDK Build-Tools 27.0.3.
  • Android 8.1 (API Level 27) SDK Platform.
  • Android Support Repository

You can also install other packages like emulators for running the app, if you don’t have or don’t want to use a real device. The minimum supported Android version is 4.1, Jelly Bean (API level 16).
