    you are supposed to make a pull request to development.
    Make sure it pass a build check on Travis

    It is advisable to clone only the development branch using following command:

    git clone -b <branch> <remote_repo>


    git clone -b my-branch

    Alternative (no public key setup needed):

    git clone -b my-branch

    With Git 1.7.10 and later, add –single-branch to prevent fetching of all branches. Example, with development branch:

    git clone -b development --single-branch

  • master
    This contains the stable code. After significant features/bugfixes are accumulated on development, we move it to master.
  • apk
    This branch contains automatically generated apk file for testing.
  • gh-pages

Development Setup

Before you begin, you should already have the Android Studio SDK downloaded and set up correctly. You can find a guide on how to do this here: Setting up Android Studio

Setting up the Android Project

  1. Download the phimpme-android project source. You can do this either by forking and cloning the repository (recommended if you plan on pushing changes) or by downloading it as a ZIP file and extracting it.
  2. Install the NDK in Android Studio.
  3. Open Android Studio, you will see a Welcome to Android window. Under Quick Start, select Import Project (Eclipse ADT, Gradle, etc.)
  4. Navigate to the directory where you saved the phimpme-android project, select the root folder of the project (the folder named “phimpme-android”), and hit OK. Android Studio should now begin building the project with Gradle.
  5. Once this process is complete and Android Studio opens, check the Console for any build errors.
    • Note: If you recieve a Gradle sync error titled, “failed to find ...”, you should click on the link below the error message (if avaliable) that says Install missing platform(s) and sync project and allow Android studio to fetch you what is missing.
  6. Download this OpenCV-android-sdk zip file and extract it.
    • Copy all the files from “OpenCV-android-sdk/sdk/native/3rdparty” to “phimpme-android/app/src/main/3rdparty” (create directory if it doesn’t exist)
    • Copy all the files from “OpenCV-android-sdk/sdk/native/libs” to “phimpme-android/app/src/main/jniLibs” (create directory if it doesn’t exist)
    • Now build your project. If your build fails then try deleting these build directories “phimpme-android/app/.externalNativeBuild” and “phimpme-android/app/build”, if they exist and run the build again.
  7. Once all build errors have been resolved, you should be all set to build the app and test it.
  8. To Build the app, go to Build>Make Project (or alternatively press the Make Project icon in the toolbar).
  9. If the app was built succesfully, you can test it by running it on either a real device or an emulated one by going to Run>Run ‘app’ or presing the Run icon in the toolbar.
  10. To enable the sharing features to different account, add API_KEY/ APP_ID associated with accounts. Add the Keys in and strings.xml. Following are the links of developer pages of account. Go there to create apps and get keys.
