Google Santa Tracker for Android 🎅🤶

About

Google Santa Tracker app for Android is an educational and entertaining tradition that brings joy to millions of children (and children at heart) across the world over the December holiday period.

The app is a companion to the Google Santa Tracker website (repository here), showcasing unique platform capabilities like Android Wear watchfaces, device notifications and more.

Features

  • A beautiful designed village
  • Exciting games like Penguin Swim and Rocket Sleigh
  • Use of Dynamic Feature Modules (each game is a separate module, fetched dynamically on first run)
  • Interactive Android Wear watchfaces (with sound!)
  • Videos, animations and more.

Building the app

First up, Santa Tracker is powered by Firebase, so you'll need to enable it on your Google account over at the Firebase console. Once you're in the console, follow these steps:

  • Create a new project
  • Add Firebase to your Android app
  • Package name: com.google.android.apps.santatracker.debug
  • Debug signing certificate can be blank, or follow the instructions in the tooltip to find yours.
  • Save the google-services.json file to the santa-tracker/ directory

Now you should be able to plug your phone in (or fire up an emulator) and run:

./gradlew santa-tracker:installDebug

Alternatively, import the source code into Android Studio (File, Import Project).

Note: You'll need Android SDK version 28. If you're unsure about this, use Android Studio and tick the appropriate boxes in the SDK Manager.
