Example application using Bugfender SDK in Android


Bugfender Android SDK


SDK Installation

Here are the main points to getting Bugfender working on your apps:

  • Add Bugfender SDK dependency to your module <module>/build.gradle: compile 'com.bugfender.sdk:android:0.+'
  • Add the required permissions to your AndroidManifest.xml if you don't have them already android.permission.ACCESS_NETWORK_STATE and android.permission.INTERNET
  • Initialize Bugfender in your Application#onCreate() with:
Bugfender.init(this, "<YOUR APP KEY>", BuildConfig.DEBUG);
  • If using Proguard, you do not need to change your configuration. Bugfender is compatible out of the box.
  • If you detect an issue, you can send it calling Bugfender.sendIssue("Title", "Message");
  • If you want to associate a value (String, Integer, Boolean or Float) to a device, you can send it with (learn more about Device associated data):
    • Bugfender.setDeviceString("user.email", "john@john.com");
    • Bugfender.setDeviceInteger("user.photo.image.width", 600);
    • Bugfender.setDeviceBoolean("user.is.logged", true);
    • Bugfender.setDeviceFloat("user.children", 3f);
  • If you want to remove a specific value associated with the device, you can do it with: Bugfender.removeDeviceKey("user.children");
  • Bugfender automatically generates an identifier for the application install in a device. You can retrieve it to show in your UI or send it to your server: Bugfender.getDeviceIdentifier();
