How to help the project?

Translate the application

Translations are managed at Transifex, please contribute there at https://www.transifex.com/projects/p/open-keychain/

Contribute Code

  1. Lookout for interesting issues on Github. We have tagged issues were we explicitly like to see contributions: https://github.com/open-keychain/open-keychain/labels/help-wanted
  2. Read this README, especially the notes about coding style
  3. Fork OpenKeychain and contribute code (the best part :sunglasses: )
  4. Open a pull request on Github. We will help with occuring problems and merge your changes back into the main project.
  5. PROFIT

For bigger changes

  1. Join the development mailinglist at http://groups.google.com/d/forum/openpgp-keychain-dev
  2. Propose bigger changes and discuss the consequences

I am happy about every code contribution and appreciate your effort to help us developing OpenKeychain!

Build with Gradle

  1. Clone the project from GitHub
  2. Get all external submodules with git submodule update --init --recursive
  3. Have Android SDK "tools", "platform-tools", and "build-tools" directories in your PATH (http://developer.android.com/sdk/index.html)
  4. Open the Android SDK Manager (shell command: android).
    Expand the Tools directory and select "Android SDK Build-tools (Version 21.1.2)".
    Expand the Extras directory and install "Android Support Repository"
    Select everything for the newest SDK Platform, API 22, and also API 21
  5. Export ANDROID_HOME pointing to your Android SDK
  6. Execute ./gradlew build
  7. You can install the app with adb install -r OpenKeychain/build/outputs/apk/OpenKeychain-debug-unaligned.apk

Run Tests

  1. Use OpenJDK instead of Oracle JDK
  2. Execute ./gradlew test

Development with Android Studio

We are using the newest Android Studio for development. Development with Eclipse is currently not possible because we are using the new project structure.

  1. Clone the project from Github
  2. Get all external submodules with git submodule update --init --recursive
  3. From Android Studio: File -> Import Project -> Select the cloned top folder

Libraries

Bouncy Castle

Spongy Castle

Spongy Castle is the stock Bouncy Castle libraries with a couple of small changes to make it work on Android. OpenKeychain uses a forked version with some small changes. These changes will been sent to Bouncy Castle, and Spongy Castle will be used again when they have filtered down.

Build System

We try to make our builds as reproducible/deterministic as possible.

Update Gradle version

  • Always use a fixed Android Gradle plugin version not a dynamic one, e.g. 0.7.3 instead of 0.7.+ (allows offline builds without lookups for new versions, also some minor Android plugin versions had serious issues, i.e. 0.7.2 and 0.8.1)
  • Update every build.gradle file with the new gradle version and/or gradle plugin version
    • build.gradle
    • OpenKeychain/build.gradle
  • run ./gradlew wrapper twice to update gradle and download the new gradle jar file
  • commit the corresponding Gradle wrapper to the repository (allows easy building for new contributors without the need to install the required Gradle version using a package manager)

Update SDK and Build Tools

  • Open build.gradle and change:
ext {
    compileSdkVersion = 21
    buildToolsVersion = '21.1.2'
}
  • Change SDK and Build Tools in git submodules "openkeychain-api-lib" and "openpgp-api-lib" manually. They should also build on their own without the ext variables.

Add new library

  • You can add the library as a Maven dependency or as a git submodule (if patches are required) in the "extern" folder.
  • If added as a Maven dependency, pin the library using Gradle Witness (Do ./gradlew -q calculateChecksums for Trust on First Use)
  • If added as a git submodule, change the compileSdkVersion and buildToolsVersion in build.gradle to use the variables from the root project:
android {
    compileSdkVersion rootProject.ext.compileSdkVersion
    buildToolsVersion rootProject.ext.buildToolsVersion
}
  • You can check for wrong compileSdkVersion by find -name build.gradle | xargs grep compileSdkVersion

Slow Gradle?

Error:Configuration with name 'default' not found.

Gradle project dependencies are missing. Do a git submodule init && git submodule update

Build on Mac OS X fails?

Try exporting JAVA_TOOL_OPTIONS="-Dfile.encoding=UTF8"

Translations

Translations are hosted on Transifex, which is configured by ".tx/config".

  1. To pull newest translations install transifex client (e.g. apt-get install transifex-client)
  2. Config Transifex client with "~/.transifexrc"
  3. Go into root folder of git repo
  4. execute tx pull -af --skip

see http://help.transifex.net/features/client/index.html#user-client

Coding Style

Code

  • Indentation: 4 spaces, no tabs
  • Maximum line width for code and comments: 100
  • Opening braces don't go on their own line
  • Field names: Non-public, non-static fields start with m.
  • Acronyms are words: Treat acronyms as words in names, yielding !XmlHttpRequest, getUrl(), etc.
  • Fully Qualify Imports: Do not use wildcard-imports such as import foo.*;

The full coding style can be found at http://source.android.com/source/code-style.html

Automated syntax check with CheckStyle

Linux

  1. Paste the tools/checkstyle.xml file to ~/.AndroidStudioPreview/config/codestyles/
  2. Go to Settings > Code Style > Java, select OpenPgpChecker, as well as Code Style > XML and select OpenPgpChecker again.
  3. Start code inspection and see the results by selecting Analyze > Inspect Code from Android-Studio or you can directly run checkstyle via cli with .tools/checkstyle. Make sure it's executable first.

Mac OSX

  1. Paste the tools/checkstyle.xml file to ~/Library/Preferences/AndroidStudioPreview/codestyles
  2. Go to Preferences > Code Style > Java, select OpenPgpChecker, as well as Code Style > XML and select OpenPgpChecker again.
  3. Start code inspection and see the results by selecting Analyze > Inspect Code from Android-Studio or you can directly run checkstyle via cli with .tools/checkstyle. Make sure it's executable first.

Windows

  1. Paste the tools/checkstyle.xml file to C:\Users\<UserName>\.AndroidStudioPreview\config\codestyles
  2. Go to File > Settings > Code Style > Java, select OpenPgpChecker, as well as Code Style > XML and select OpenPgpChecker again.
  3. Start code inspection and see the results by selecting Analyze > Inspect Code from Android-Studio.
