Akvo FLOW app

The Akvo FLOW app is the mobile application for data collection.

Akvo FLOW is a tool built specially for international development teams to monitor and evaluate initiatives while working in diverse locations that are often remote or lacking reliable basic infrastructure. It is designed for people who want to understand what is happening now, so they can make informed decisions that lead to secure, sustainable development aid investments.

Getting Started

To set up your development environment you'll need:

  • Android SDK: With the SDK Manager, ensure you have at least the version 23.0.2 of the Android SDK Tools and the version 20 of the Android SDK Build-Tools. You will also need to check out the Android Support Library, Android Support Repository and Google Play Services.
  • [Optional] Android Studio or Eclipse (using the Gradle Plugin) (Given the built-in Gradle support, Android Studio is recommended).
  • [Optional] Gradle: You can either use a local Gradle installation, or just use the bundled binaries (recommended).

Importing the Project in Android Studio

  • Click File > Import Project... and select the build.gradle file from the root directory of the repository. This will recursively import the modules of the app.

Note: For an overview on how Android Studio manages the Project structure, see the official documentation

Building the app

  • Before building the app, ensure the corresponding file is located in app/src/main/res/raw/.
  • In order to automatically sign the generated APKs, we will need to set up the file in the app module. Just copy the sample file without the .template extension, and edit the values according to your local environment.
  • To build a release version of the app: ./gradlew assemblyRelease (or simply ./gradlew aR). The generated APK will be located in app/build/outputs/apk/app-release.apk
