This is the Android client for Bridgewalker ( https://www.bridgewalkerapp.com/ ).

The code is only sparsely commented, I'm afraid. To give a very rough overview: The Android app talks to the Bridgewalker server over an encrypted websocket connection over which a custom JSON-based protocol is spoken. This part of the code is implemented as an Android service (see BackendService.java) which is started and accessed from the various frontend activities. The service uses the library Jackson to convert the JSON messages from the server into Java objects (see classes in .apidata.*) and conversely serializes commands send to the server to JSON via Jackson as well. Some plumbing exists between the service and the activities to push updates to the GUI as soon as they arrive and conversely send commands resulting from user actions on to the server using the backend service.
