CameraXbasic aims to demonstrate how to use CameraX APIs written in Kotlin.


To build the app directly from the command line, run:

./gradlew assembleDebug


Unit testing and instrumented device testing share the same code. To test the app using Robolectric, no device required, run:

./gradlew test

To run the same tests in an Android device connected via ADB, run:

./gradlew connectedAndroidTest

Alternatively, test running configurations can be added to Android Studio for convenience (and a nice UI). To do that:

  1. Go to: Run > Edit Configurations > Add New Configuration.
  2. For Robolectric select Android JUnit, for connected device select Android Instrumented Tests.
  3. Select app module and class.
  4. Optional: Give the run configuration a name, like test robolectric or test device
