Development Environment Setup

Clone the repository

$ git clone 

Before you begin, you should already have the Android Studio SDK downloaded and set up correctly. You can find a guide on how to do this here: Setting up Android Studio

Setting up the Android Project

  1. Download the loklak_wok_android project source. You can do this either by forking and cloning the repository (recommended if you plan on pushing changes) or by downloading it as a ZIP file and extracting it.

  2. Open Android Studio, you will see a Welcome to Android window. Under Quick Start, select Import Project (Eclipse ADT, Gradle, etc.)

  3. Navigate to the directory where you saved the loklak_wok_android project, select this folder.

  4. Once this process is complete and Android Studio opens, check the Console for any build errors. Note: If you receive a Gradle sync error titled, "failed to find ...", you should click on the link below the error message (if available) that says Install missing platform(s) and sync project and allow Android studio to fetch you what is missing.

  5. Once all build errors have been resolved, you should be all set to build the app and test it.

  6. To Build the app, go to Build>Make Project (or alternatively press the Make Project icon in the toolbar).

  7. If the app was built successfully, you can test it by running it on either a real device or an emulated one by going to Run>Run 'app' or pressing the Run icon in the toolbar.
