Getting Started

Either you start a new app or you adapt an existing one, there are few easy steps to do in order to fully enjoy a CARTON Viewer.

1 - Add the library to your gradle app file

dependencies {
    ...

    compile 'mobi.carton:library:0.1.0'
}

2 - Update your manifest: set the orientation of your activity (all of them) to landscape, add a category to make your launcher (only) activity compatible, finally, add a simple description.

<application
    ...
    android:description="@string/app_description">

    <activity
        ...
        android:screenOrientation="landscape">
        <intent-filter>
            <action android:name="android.intent.action.MAIN"/>
            <category android:name="android.intent.category.LAUNCHER"/>
            ...
            <category android:name="mobi.carton.intent.category.COMPATIBLE"/>
        </intent-filter>
    </activity>
</application>

3 - Extend your activity with CartonActivity

public class MyActivity extends CartonActivity {
    ...

Features

Auto adaptive screens

In order to fully use the Carton viewer, everything on the screen needs to be horizontally reversed, the brightness set the maximum, and the size and margin has to be set to respectively 60x35mm and 10x10mm (from top left). Carton SDK make it easy by extending CartonActivity class instead of Activity.

public class MainActivity extends CartonActivity {

    ...

Default Launcher Activity

The default launcher provide help to the user to place the mobile phone into the Carton viewer.

@Override
protected void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {
    super.onCreate(savedInstanceState);
    setContentView(R.layout.activity_main);

    startDefaultLauncher();

    ...
}

Head Gesture Recognition

This library is here to help head gesture recognition when using Carton. Three kinds of gestures are available : tilting, nodding, and shaking.

@Override
protected void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {
    super.onCreate(savedInstanceState);
    setContentView(R.layout.activity_main);

    ...

    HeadRecognition headRecognition = new HeadRecognition(this);
    headRecognition.setOnHeadGestureListener(new HeadRecognition.OnHeadGestureListener() {
        @Override
        public void onTilt(int direction) {
            switch (direction) {
                case HeadRecognition.TILT_RIGHT:
                    // do whatever
                break;
                case HeadRecognition.TILT_LEFT:
                    // do whatever
                break;
            }
        }

        @Override
        public void onNod(int direction) {
            switch (direction) {
                case HeadRecognition.NOD_DOWN:
                    // do whatever
                break;
                case HeadRecognition._NOD_UP:
                    // do whatever
                break;
            }
        }

        @Override
        public void onShake() {
            // ... do whatever
        }
    });
}

// ...

@Override
protected void onResume() {
    super.onResume();
    mHeadRecognition.start();
}

@Override
protected void onPause() {
    super.onPause();
    mHeadRecognition.stop();
}
