Ach so!

Android video recording and annotation app for construction.

Usage with Android Studio

Please use the latest Android Studio version from the stable channel.

  1. Clone the repository.
  2. File → Import Project...
  3. Select the build.gradle file in the project root directory.

Launching Ach so! from intents

You can launch Ach so! just to play singular Ach so!-videos. (if e.g. some other service finds Ach so! videos as resources and wants to show them for the user)

If you provide generic Intent.VIEW with an uri using the 'achso:'-scheme, Ach so! will load the uri and play the video:

Intent intent = new Intent(Intent.ACTION_VIEW);
// we have a video with id "2de064a5-cb38-4c04-9fde-502ab619fc46"
// uri will be "achso:2de064a5-cb38-4c04-9fde-502ab619fc46"
Uri uri = Uri.fromParts("achso", "2de064a5-cb38-4c04-9fde-502ab619fc46", null);

Another way to show a single video is to specifically ask Ach so! to play a .mp4 -video. In this case Ach so! looks if there are annotations available for this video file in the default server and fetches those.

Intent intent = new Intent("fi.aalto.legroup.achso.action.VIEW");
Uri uri = Uri.parse("");
intent.setDataAndType(uri, "video/mp4");

There are libraries to launch intents in PhoneGap/Cordova. If you want to play Ach so! videos in non-android environments, use video player in Achrails.

Contribution guidelines

Loosely based on Thoughtbot’s Git protocol.

The master branch mirrors the currently stable version, i.e. the one that is currently on Google Play. The history on this branch is final and must never be rewritten.

The integration branch hosts the current development version. Rebasing this branch is discouraged, but it can be done if there’s a good enough reason and contributors are consulted with beforehand.

Other branches are working branches. You can expect their history to be rewritten at any time.

  1. Create a new branch based off integration before starting work. Use a traceable name like feature/LL-123 or bugfix/LL-123, where the number after the prefix is the issue number in JIRA. Use feature/summary-of-feature if the feature doesn’t have JIRA ticket.

  2. Do your work in the new branch and commit often with good, descriptive commit messages. The first line of your commit message should not exceed 50 characters.

  3. Check your commit history when you’ve finished work. Use interactive rebase git rebase -i integration to clean it up. Your commits should be atomic: each commit should contain one change that doesn’t depend on other commits to build. This is easier if you commit often and then rebase.

  4. Create a pull request against integration when your commits are clean. If you accidentally mistarget the pull request, against master for example, close it and create a new one.

  5. Mark the JIRA issue as resolved.

  6. Other contributors will review your changes. If they need more work, push additional commits to the working branch.

  7. The reviewer marks the JIRA issue as closed and merges the pull request.

  8. Delete your working branch when it’s no longer needed. This can be done easily from the pull request page.

When the changes in the integration branch are deemed stable, they will be merged into master and a new version is released.


Since v0.10.0, Ach so! releases follow semantic versioning and each release is tagged in the master branch.


Ach so! is developed by the Learning Environments research group at the School of Arts, Design and Architecture of Aalto University, Finland.
