A work-in-progress TV show tracking Android app

Tivi

Tivi is a work-in-progress TV show tracking Android app, which connects to Trakt.tv. It is still in its early stages of development and currently only contains two pieces of UI. It is under heavy development.

Android development

Tivi is an app which attempts to use the latest cutting edge libraries and tools. As a summary:

  • Entirely written in Kotlin
  • Uses RxJava 2
  • Uses all of the Architecture Components: Room, LiveData and Lifecycle-components
  • Uses dagger-android for dependency injection

Development setup

First off, you require the latest Android Studio 3.0 (or newer) to be able to build the app.

Code style

This project uses ktlint, provided via
the spotless gradle plugin, and the bundled project IntelliJ codestyle.

If you find that one of your pull reviews does not pass the CI server check due to a code style conflict, you can
easily fix it by running: ./gradlew spotlessApply, or running IntelliJ/Android Studio's code formatter.

API keys

You need to supply API / client keys for the various services the
app uses. That is currently Trakt.tv,
TMDb and Fabric (for Crashlytics). You can find information about
how to gain access via the relevant links.

For Trakt.tv, set the redirect uri to app.tivi://auth/oauth2callback.

When you obtain the keys, you can provide them to the app by putting the following in the
gradle.properties file in your user home:

# Get these from Trakt.tv
TIVI_TRAKT_CLIENT_ID=<insert>
TIVI_TRAKT_CLIENT_SECRET=<insert>

# Get this from TMDb
TIVI_TMDB_API_KEY=<insert>

# Get this from Fabric/Crashlytics
TIVI_FABRIC_API_KEY=<insert>

On Linux/Mac that file is typically found at ~/.gradle/gradle.properties or in the project directory tivi/gradle.properties
