Android Market Manager

Introduction

The Android Market Manager library is a small library project for Android app developers to simplify interaction with various app markets.

Currently, it contains:

  • Methods to link to the appropriate app store for either a single app, or all of a developer's apps
  • Some library utilities for checking which device the app is running on

Also included is the test project, which is a handy way to check how linking to each market will work on a particular device.

Note that while documentation is currently light, the constants file contains a lot of description for how the linking occurs. This may be useful for you even if you don't want to use the library itself.

For a description of available methods and what they are for, see http://www.projectjourneyman.com/linking-android-app-stores-android-market-manager

Beyond simply copying the code into your project there are two easy ways to bring it into Android Studio.

Including as a local library

To reference it as a local module (but not a part of your project), add the following in your settings.gradle (substituting the location as appropriate)

include ':AndroidMarketManagerLib'
project(':AndroidMarketManagerLib').projectDir = new File(settingsDir, '../AndroidMarketManager/AndroidMarketManagerLib')

Next, add the following to the build.gradle for your module:

dependencies {
    compile project(':AndroidMarketManagerLib')
} 

Referencing directly from GitHub

To reference this (or any) library or codebase on GitHub or a few other places (but not in a repo), try this.

First, your module's build.gradle must add a new repo for JitPack (the second line):

repositories {
    jcenter()
    maven { url "https://jitpack.io" }
}

Next, add the dependency to the same build.gradle. Note that the final string is the commit version; you can update this at JitPack.io by entering the GitHub project url and picking the latest commit.

dependencies {    
    ...    
    // Use jitpack.io to capture https://github.com/TimMackenzie/AndroidMarketManager
    compile('com.github.TimMackenzie:AndroidMarketManager:bc272e410c') {
        exclude module: 'AndroidMarketManagerTest'
    }
}

That's it!
