A space launch tracker for Android using data from the Launch Library API, the current roadmap can be viewed on Trello.

Data Sources

A majority of the data is currently sourced from Launch Libary a wonderful set of API's and Librarians that are constantly tracking and updating launches around the world. Additionally I utilize Space Launch Now - Server to provide additional vehicle data and push notifications for launch times.


Space Launch Now is now translated into five languages, huge thanks to those that have contributed. If you are interested in helping improve the translations feel free to take a look here.

Thanks to the following translators for their work:

Fosco85, Francescog91, Ndre85f, Ajtudela, Pedroleon, SwGustav, Ogoidmatos, Ludi.vogt, Bullinger.mathis, Lukas Affolter, Castelle.arnaud, Nem.meric, Arnaud.muller1308, Jaros.jan.j, Jirkatp, Peter.handless




To properly build this project you will need to create a few files and add a few extra string keys.

NOTE: I will not be able to provide support beyond what is inside of this setup guide. It is on you as a developer to get the correct keys and create the correct accounts to build the project.

Keystore File

From the root of the project create a file used by both mobile and wear modules.


API Keys

Add a api_keys.xml to res/values.

    <string name="wunderground_key">yourWeatherUndergroundKey</string>
    <string name="forecast_io_key">yourForecastIOKey</string>
    <string name="GoogleMapsKey">yourGoogleMapsKey</string>
    <string name="banner_ad_unit_id">yourAdUnitID</string>
    <string name="rsa_key">yourGoogleBillingRSAKey</string>
    <string name="sln_token">noNeedToChangeThis</string>

In the mobile and wear modules add a or reset AI_VERSION to 0 if it exists.
