Android installation

This guide describes how to add AbleLib to your Android app.

Before you start, make sure you have a valid licence key. If you don't have one, please follow these instructions.

Go to your project level build.gradle and add the AbleLib Maven repo to it:

allprojects {
    repositories {
        ...
        maven {
            url 'https://repo.repsy.io/mvn/codecons/ablelib'
         }
    }
}

Then, add the AbleLib dependency to your module build.gradle:

dependencies {
  ...
  implementation "com.ablelib:ableLib:1.0.0"
}

Also, add the following options to the same file to make sure your code is compatible with that of the library:

android {
    compileOptions {
        sourceCompatibility JavaVersion.VERSION_1_8
        targetCompatibility JavaVersion.VERSION_1_8
    }
}

Lastly, open your app's AndroidManifest.xml and add the following meta-data to it:

<application 
  ...>
  <meta-data
    android:name="com.ablelib.LICENCE_KEY"
    android:value="INSERT_YOUR_LICENCE_KEY_HERE" />
</application>

That's it! Test the your installation by scanning for nearby devices.
