Kickstarter for Androidβ„’


Welcome to Kickstarter's open source Android app! Come on in, take your shoes off, stay a whileβ€”explore how Kickstarter's native squad has built and continues to build the app, discover our implementation of RxJava in logic- filled view models, and maybe even create an issue or two.

We've also open sourced our iOS app, written in Swift: check it out here. Read more about our journey to open source here.

Kickstarter for Android

Getting Started

Follow these instructions to build and run the project with mock data..

  1. Clone this repository.
  2. Download the appropriate JDK for your system. We are currently on JDK 8.
  3. Install Android Studio.
  4. cd into the project repo and run make bootstrap to bootstrap your Android development environment. Keep an eye on the output to see if any manual steps are required.
  5. Import the project. Open Android Studio, click Open an existing Android Studio project and select the project. Gradle will build the project.
  6. Run the app. Click Run > Run 'app'. After the project builds you'll be prompted to build or launch an emulator.


While we're at it, why not share our docs? Check out the native docs we have written so far for more documentation.


We intend for this project to be an educational resource: we are excited to share our wins, mistakes, and methodology of Android development as we work in the open. Our primary focus is to continue improving the app for our users in line with our roadmap.

The best way to submit feedback and report bugs is to open a Github issue. Please be sure to include your operating system, device, version number, and steps to reproduce reported bugs. Keep in mind that all participants will be expected to follow our code of conduct.

Code of Conduct

We aim to share our knowledge and findings as we work daily to improve our product, for our community, in a safe and open space. We work as we live, as kind and considerate human beings who learn and grow from giving and receiving positive, constructive feedback. We reserve the right to delete or ban any behavior violating this base foundation of respect.

Find this interesting?

We do too, and we’re hiring!
