SpaceLaunchNow

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.

Setup

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 keystore.properties file used by both mobile and wear modules.

keystore.properties

storePassword=yourStorePassword
keyPassword=yourKeyPassword
keyAlias=yourAlias
storeFile=/full/path/to/keystore

API Keys

Add a api_keys.xml to res/values.

<resources>
    <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>
</resources>

version.properties

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

#Thu Feb 15 11:52:58 EST 2018
AI_VERSION_CODE=3

Replace google-services.json

Replace the google-services.json with your own.

AndroidX

Update gradle.properties to include the following lines if you have issues pertaining to AndroidX,
e.g. an Adapter or Activity doesn't match the required type:

android.useAndroidX=true
android.enableJetifier=true

Memory issues when building

If you're seeing stalled command-line builds, or warnings/errors pertaining to running out of memory
while building, you can increase the amount of memory allocated to Gradle using the following line
in gradle.properties

org.gradle.jvmargs=-Xmx3g -XX:MaxPermSize=2048m -XX:+HeapDumpOnOutOfMemoryError -Dfile.encoding=UTF-8
