Proximity Beacon Manager
This repository contains a sample beacon manager application on Android using Google's Proximity Beacon API. The application exposes a few basic functions of the API:
- Registering new beacons
- Listing registered beacons
- Listing beacon attachments
- Listing project namespaces
- Creating & deleting beacon attachments
This repository contains sample code intended to demonstrate the capabilities of the Proximity Beacon API. It is not intended to be used as-is in applications as a library dependency—or a stand-alone production application—and will not be maintained as such. Bug fix contributions are welcome, but issues and feature requests will not be addressed.
The beacon API (and this sample application) uses your Google account and OAuth 2.0 to authenticate all requests. Because of this, you do not need to make any source code changes to use it. You must simply choose a Google account that is already attached to your developer's console project where the Proximity Beacon API is enabled.
For more information on enabling the API and creating the proper API credentials, follow the beacon API Getting Started Guide.
On your first run through the application (after selecting an account) there will likely be no beacons to list. Select Register Beacon from the options menu to launch the beacon scanner. This activity will scan for advertising Eddystone-UID beacons and allow you to register them with your console project.
Once you have one or more beacons registered, you can tap on those beacons in the main list to access their attachments. You may create new attachments using the add action in the options menu. Existing attachments can also be deleted from the attachments list.
To assist in making new attachments easier, tapping on an existing attachment will copy its contents to the clipboard so they can be pasted into the create activity.
