User Stories

The following required functionality is completed:

Core Platform Development

  • App keeps all strings in a strings.xml file and enables RTL layout switching on all layouts.

  • App provides a widget to provide relevant information to the user on the home screen.

Google Play Services

  • App implements Google Analytics service

  • App implements Google Ads service

  • Each service imported in the build.gradle is used in the app.

Material Design

  • App theme extends AppCompat.

  • App uses an app bar and associated toolbars.

  • App uses standard and simple transitions between activities.

Building

  • App builds from a clean repository checkout with no additional configuration.

  • App builds and deploys using the installRelease Gradle task.

  • App is equipped with a signing configuration, and the keystore and passwords are included in the repository. Keystore is referred to by a relative path.

  • All app dependencies are managed by Gradle.

Data Persistence

  • App stores data locally either by implementing a ContentProvider OR using Firebase Realtime Database. No third party frameworks may be used.

  • It it performs short duration, on-demand requests(such as search), app uses an AsyncTask.

  • App uses a Loader to move its data to its views.

The following optional features are implemented:

  • App uses Fabric & Crashlytics for metrics

  • App uses Stetho for db and network inspection

  • App uses Timber for logging and uses build variants to determine which logs to output

  • App uses JRAW library and gson for reddit processing

  • App uses Active Android for DB persistence

  • App uses Retrofit for handling network requests

Notes

  • In order to get Crashlytics to work, you need a fabric.properties file at the root of the project with your Fabric secret key
