Services

This project is actively maintained

It is part of the ODK-X Android tools suite.

Prior to rev 200, this repo was the core repo.

It is an APK that provides services (database, content providers, local webserver) used by all the other ODK-X tools.

The developer wiki (including release notes) and issues tracker are located under the ODK-X Tool Suite project.

Setting up your environment

General instructions for setting up an ODK-X environment can be found at our Developer Environment Setup wiki page

Install Android Studio and the SDK.

This project depends on ODK-X's androidlibrary and androidcommon projects; their binaries will be downloaded automatically from our maven repository during the build phase. If you wish to modify them yourself, you must clone them into the same parent directory as survey. You directory stucture should resemble the following:

    |-- odk-x

        |-- services

        |-- androidlibrary
  • Note that this only applies if you are modifying androidlibrary. If you use the maven dependencies (the default option), the project will not show up in your directory.

Now you should be ready to build.

Building the project

Open the Services project in Android Studio. Select `Build->Make Project' to build the app.

Running

If the project builds properly, it should be able to run on an Android device without any other prerequisites.
