ReGalAndroid Build Status

Formerly named g2android, ReGalAndroid is a Menalto Gallery 2 client; but aimed to be also compatible with G3, Piwigo , etc...

There are 6 modules present :

  • g2-java-client : the gallery2 (G2) compatibility layer, providing a lightweight Java API (and its unit tests) to communicate with the gallery2 remote interface described here
  • g3-java-client : the gallery3 (G3) compatibility layer, providing a lightweight Java API (and its unit tests) to communicate with the G3 remote interface described here
  • commons-gallery : a project providing common (!) API elements, for all gallery implementations ; that is, for now, mainly an Album and a Picture class
  • jiwigo-ws-api : the Piwigo compatibility layer, providing a lightweight Java API (and its unit tests) to communicate with the Piwigo remote interface this module has been developed by Gael Le Guevel
  • regalandroid : this is the android application; compatible with all Android enabled phones and tablets starting from 1.5
  • regalandroid-parent : this is the parent of all the project; build this one and you'll build all the projects at once.

How to compile/build

The project recently (August 2015) switched to Android Studio 1.3 You can whether use Linux, Windows or MacOsX to build any of regalandroid sub-projects.

You will need the following components installed on your machine :

  • Sun (Oracle) JDK 5.0 (though I'm using JDK 8.0)
  • Android Studio (I'm using Android Studio 1.3)
  • a git client

Make sure your environment is ok (ie the environment variables : JAVA_HOME should be set properly and also added to the path, for example, add $JAVA_HOME/bin to your $PATH)

Create a new working directory (it will become your workspace) mkdir workspace && cd workspace Checkout the whole project using : git clone git@github.com:anthonydahanne/ReGalAndroid.git ./ Build and start the app : $ ./gradlew -x test installDebug The APK should be in regalandroid/build/outputs/apk/regalandroid-debug.apk

How to import in Android Studio

Well, just import the project, build it and deploy !

How to deploy (to an emulator/phone/any android 1.5+ device)

Quickly deploy to your device

If you use an emulator, make sure to provision at least 400MB for the external storage, or else (for a reason I don't yet know) the virtual device will refuse to write to the external storage.

You can grab the compiled regalandroid APK (or build it using gradle, it will be in regalandroid/build/outputs/apk/regalandroid-debug.apk) and then copy it to your device sdcard; then browse this file on your device (using Astro for example) and install it (you need your device to be in dev mode : Menu->Settings->Applications->check Unknown sources and enable Development options)
