This is my personal project to experiment with following tools & technologies

  • Firebase - Analytics (See #111), Crash Reporting (See #10), Remote Config etc.
  • Travis CI - for build automation (See travis.yml)
  • Code coverage (jacoco [See travis.yml],, codacy, codebeat)
  • OpenAPI Specification & Related Tools (See #11, wiki)
  • RxJava (Using for retrofit and app)
  • Jack & Jill Toolchain - Used for Java 8 support (LIMITATION: I was not able to use Java 8 feature due to library project not being supported by jack. See AOSP issue #211386)
  • Retrofit 2 (See API Services)
  • Dagger 2 (See #29, core-lib:gradle)
  • Picasso - Used for memory efficient image loading
  • Coordinator & Constraint Layout
  • Timber (android logging) (See #30)
  • Android TV Leanback (Most code samples are taken from "leanback-showcase" project)
  • Design Support Library
  • Database (local caching - Realm (maybe?))
  • Scheduler - data syncing
  • MVP Architecture (See #27, some UI still needs refactoring)
  • AutoValue (See #76)
  • Google Play Alpha Beta release (Beta app available on Google Play)
  • LeakCanary (See #60)

Features started using in the mobile app:

  • Kotlin Support (See #175)
  • Room ORM (Planned for content caching)
  • Upgrade to RxJava 2 (Planned)

I'll try to update references for these items when I use in the app 😎
