Code Style

  • mNo Hungarion notation.
  • No Impl suffixes for interface implementations. Instead name based on what it does. Ex: AppStore and implementations AppDiskStore and AppSystemStore.
  • All new modules are preferred to be written in Kotlin
  • Formatting - Android Studio Default.

Contributions

You are more than welcome to contribute to Lynket's development. New features are branched off of develop . PRs are welcome against the develop branch. How you can help:

  • Grab an issue from issues section that interests you.
  • Unit testing using Roboelectric and Dagger 2 is already setup but coverage is rather low. Adding tests to existing features would greatly help! Refer src/test/.
  • Break the ice. Feel free to create an issue to discuss your ideas.
