Branch Policy

We have the following branches

  • development All development goes on in this branch. If you're making a contribution, you are supposed to make a pull request to development. Make sure it passes a build check on Travis

    It is advisable to clone only the development branch using the following command:

    git clone -b <branch> <remote_repo>


    git clone -b my-branch

    Alternative (no public key setup needed):

    git clone -b my-branch

    With Git 1.7.10 and later, add --single-branch to prevent fetching of all branches. Example, with development branch:

    git clone -b development --single-branch

  • master This contains the stable code. After significant features/bugfixes are accumulated on development, we move it to master.

  • apk This branch contains automatically generated apk file for testing.

  • gh-pages For reference gh-pages branch is hosting the Gihub-Pages link for this Repo at

Development Setup

Before you begin, you should have already downloaded the Android Studio SDK and set it up correctly. You can find a guide on how to do this here: Setting up Android Studio

Setting up the Android Project

  1. Download the phimpme-android project source. You can do this either by forking and cloning the repository (recommended if you plan on pushing changes) or by downloading it as a ZIP file and extracting it.

  2. Install the NDK in Android Studio.

  3. Open Android Studio, you will see a Welcome to Android window. Under Quick Start, select Import Project (Eclipse ADT, Gradle, etc.)

  4. Navigate to the directory where you saved the phimpme-android project, select the root folder of the project (the folder named "phimpme-android"), and hit OK. Android Studio should now begin building the project with Gradle.

  5. Once this process is complete and Android Studio opens, check the Console for any build errors.

    • Note: If you receive a Gradle sync error titled, "failed to find ...", you should click on the link below the error message (if available) that says Install missing platform(s) and sync project and allow Android studio to fetch you what is missing.
  6. Download this OpenCV-android-sdk zip file and extract it.

    • Copy all the files from "OpenCV-android-sdk/sdk/native/3rdparty" to "phimpme-android/app/src/main/3rdparty" (create directory if it doesn't exist)

    • Copy all the files from "OpenCV-android-sdk/sdk/native/libs" to "phimpme-android/app/src/main/jniLibs" (create directory if it doesn't exist)

    • Copy all the files from "OpenCV-android-sdk/sdk/native/jni/include" to "phimpme-android/app/src/main/jni/include" (create directory if it doesn't exist)

    • Copy all the files from "OpenCV-android-sdk/sdk/native/staticlibs" to "phimpme-android/app/src/main/staticlibs" (create directory if it doesn't exist)

    • Now build your project. If your build fails then try deleting these build directories "phimpme-android/app/.externalNativeBuild" and "phimpme-android/app/build", if they exist and run the build again.

    • Note: If you receive a Gradle sync error titled, "executing external native build for ndkBuild ...User\Project\phimpme-android\app\src\main\jni\",Then you go to the file "app/build.gradle" and make those lines "externalNativeBuild { ndkBuild { path 'src/main/jni/' }" comment.

  7. If build error still persist, try replacing ndk with ndk version 18b from ndk-archives . Once all build errors have been resolved, you should be all set to build the app and test it.

  8. To Build the app, go to Build > Make Project (or alternatively press the Make Project icon in the toolbar).

  9. If the app was built successfully, you can test it by running it on either a real device or an emulated one by going to Run > Run 'app' or pressing the Run icon in the toolbar.

  10. To enable the sharing features to a different account, add API_KEY/ APP_ID associated with accounts. Add the Keys in and strings.xml. Following are the links to developer pages of account. Go there to create apps and get keys.
