Testing Dev Releases

We are using Travis to perform continuous integration both by unit testing, deploying dev releases to Firebase App Distribution and final releases to the Play Store when we add a git tag.


We are using ktlint as our linter. You can run a check locally on your machine with:

./gradlew ktlintCheck

This commands runs on our CI to check if your PR passes all tests. So we strongly recommend running it before committing.

To run a check with an auto-format:

./gradlew ktlintFormat


The project currently uses lokalise to translate the application. If you are interested in helping translate go the the link and click start translating!
