About the Book

Android's Architecture Components covers the use of the Architecture Components released by Google in 2017. This book is updated several times a year and is available through the Warescription program. Subscribers also have access to office hours chats and other benefits.

This repository contains the source code for the sample apps profiled in the book. These samples are updated as the book is, with git tags applied to tie sample code versions to book versions.

The book, and the samples, were written by Mark Murphy. You may also have run into him through Stack Overflow:

All of the source code in this archive is licensed under the Apache 2.0 license except as noted.

All of the projects should have a build.gradle file suitable for importing the project into Android Studio. Note, though, that you may need to adjust the compileSdkVersion in build.gradle if it requests an SDK that you have not downloaded and do not wish to download. Similarly, you may need to adjust the buildToolsVersion value to refer to a version of the build tools that you have downloaded from the SDK Manager.

The samples also have stub Gradle wrapper files, enough to allow for easy import into Android Studio. However, always check the file before importing anything into Android Studio, as there is always the chance that somebody has published material linking you to a hacked Gradle installation.
