Socialize SDK Android

Integrating Socialize into your App

Check out the full documentation to learn how to integrate Socialize into your app:

http://socialize.github.io/socialize-sdk-android/

Building Socialize from Source

Note: This is not required if you simply want to integrate Socialize into your app

Prerequisites

Make sure you have the following installed on your local machine:

Also make sure you have the following versions of the Android SDK installed:

  • Android 2.2 (API 8)
  • Android 4.4 (API 19)

These are installed using the Android SDK manager:

http://developer.android.com/tools/help/sdk-manager.html

Building Socialize

First clone this repo:

git clone git@github.com:socialize/socialize-sdk-android.git

Socialize depends on 3 external library projects:

git clone git@github.com:socialize/android-ioc.git
git clone git@github.com:socialize/loopy-sdk-android.git
git clone git@github.com:facebook/facebook-android-sdk.git

Setup the Facebook SDK for Build

Switch to the verified (tested) version of Facebook:

cd facebook-android-sdk
git checkout sdk-version-3.0.1
cd ../

This version of the Facebook SDK (3.0.1) has some compilation warnings which are treated as errors by facebook. To override this, we need to change the compiler arguments in the facebook ant.properties:

vim facebook-android-sdk/facebook/ant.properties

Replace the following line:

java.compilerargs=-Xlint -Werror

With:

java.compilerargs=-Xlint

Now you can build the SDK distribution:

cd socialize-sdk-android/sdk
ant -Dsdk.dir=/usr/local/android clean build

Make sure you replace /usr/local/android with your local path to the Android SDK

Building the Demo App

To build and test the demo app from the command line:

cd socialize-sdk-android/demo
ant -Dsdk.dir=/usr/local/android clean release

Make sure you replace /usr/local/android with your local path to the Android SDK

Now you can install the demo app:

/usr/local/android/platform-tools/adb uninstall com.socialize.demo
/usr/local/android/platform-tools/adb install bin/socialize-demo-release.apk

The demo app is called, Socialize Demos

Building the Documentation

Note: Sphinx 1.2.2 is required to generate docs:

sudo pip install sphinx

To build the html version of the documentation:

cd socialize-sdk-android/sdk
ant -Dsdk.dir=/usr/local/android doc

Make sure you replace /usr/local/android with your local path to the Android SDK

Now you can browse the documentation:

open build/docs/user_guide/index.html

Running the Tests

In order to run the tests you need either an Android 4.4 device or emulator. We recommend using the Genymotion Android virtualization platform available here: http://www.genymotion.com/

Ensure the device/emulator is connected and available:

/usr/local/android/platform-tools/adb devices

If you do not see any devices listed, try restarting the adb server:

/usr/local/android/platform-tools/adb kill-server
/usr/local/android/platform-tools/adb start-server

Prior to running the tests you MUST run an sdk cleanup so that the stage server has its state reset. This is a python script located in the test folder:

cd socialize-sdk-android/test

python sdk-cleanup.py <consumer-key> <consumer-secret> \
<http://stage.api.socialize.com/v1> \
[facebook_user_id] [facebook_token]

To run the tests:

ant -propertyfile ant.global.properties -Dsdk.dir=/usr/local/android test-with-results

Make sure you replace /usr/local/android with your local path to the Android SDK

Now you can browse the coverage results:

open coverage-results/coverage.html

Building the Distro

To build the distributable SDK (zip):

cd socialize-sdk-android/sdk
ant -Dsdk.dir=/usr/local/android clean build

Make sure you replace /usr/local/android with your local path to the Android SDK
