This is an Android SDK for handling push integration with the Vibes Platform APIs.

The Android repository is available on the Vibes GitHub Repository.

Installing the Android SDK

  1. Click Add Firebase and follow the instructions on the Firebase website. This will include setting up the Google Services plugin and downloading the google-services.json into your App folder.

  2. Click Add Firebase Cloud Messaging and follow the instructions. This will include adding two services to your app to handle app token refresh and incoming push notifications.

  3. Add the Vibes SDK by doing the following:

    1. Add the following to your project-level build.gradle file:

      maven {
         url "https://github.com/vibes/android-sdk-repository/releases"
      }
    2. Add the following to your app-level build.gradle file:

      dependencies {
         // other dependencies here
         compile "com.vibes.vibes:vibes:1.+"
      }
    3. Sync your project in Android Studio.

Using an Older Version of Google Services

If you are using an older version of Google Services (the latest version uses Firebase) to handle push notifications, you need to do the following.

  1. Verify that the dependency Play-Services version is a minimum of 9.0.0. You can check this in your application build gradle configuration CustomerApplication/app/build.gradle.

    dependencies {
        ...
        compile 'com.vibes.vibes:vibes:1.+'
        compile "com.google.android.gms:play-services:9.0.0"
        compile 'com.google.android.gms:play-services-ads:9.0.0'
    }
    
    apply plugin: 'com.google.gms.google-services'
    Note: The (compile 'com.google.android.gms:play-services-ads:9.0.0') dependency only concerns those applications that send ads in their notifications. It is not mandatory.
  2. Verify that the dependency gradle version is minimum 2.3.3 and the Google-Services is version 3.0.0. You can check these in the CustomerApplication/build.gradle.

    buildscript {
        repositories {
            jcenter()
        }
        dependencies {
            classpath 'com.android.tools.build:gradle:2.3.3'
            classpath 'com.google.gms:google-services:3.0.0'
            classpath 'com.android.tools.build:gradle:2.0.0-alpha6'
            // NOTE: Do not place your application dependencies here; they belong
            // in the individual module build.gradle files
        }
    }
  3. Verify that your application doesn’t use the deprecated class GooglePlayServicesUtil. The com.google.android.gms.common.GooglePlayServicesUtil has been deprecated and replaced by import com.google.android.gms.common.GoogleApiAvailability.
    If you are using it, replace the code in Code Example One below by the code in Code Example Two in your application activity (java class) where you check Google Play Services availability.

    Code Example One
    (CustomerApplication/[ACTIVITY_CLASS_NAME].java)

    import com.google.android.gms.common.GooglePlayServicesUtil; // GooglePlayServicesUtil has been deprecated
    
    ...
    
    int resultCode = GooglePlayServicesUtil.isGooglePlayServicesAvailable(getApplicationContext());
    if(ConnectionResult.SUCCESS != resultCode) {
        //Check type of error
        if(GooglePlayServicesUtil.isUserRecoverableError(resultCode)) {
           
     Toast.makeText(getApplicationContext(), "Google Play Service is not 
    install/enabled in this device!", Toast.LENGTH_LONG).show();
            //So notification
            GooglePlayServicesUtil.showErrorNotification(resultCode, getApplicationContext());
        } else {
           
     Toast.makeText(getApplicationContext(), "This device does not support 
    for Google Play Service!", Toast.LENGTH_LONG).show();
        }
    } else {
        //Start service
        Intent itent = new Intent(this, GCMRegistrationIntentService.class);
        startService(itent);
    }

    Code Example Two

    import com.google.android.gms.common.GoogleApiAvailability;
    
    ...
    
    GoogleApiAvailability googleAPI = GoogleApiAvailability.getInstance();
    int resultCode = googleAPI.isGooglePlayServicesAvailable(getApplicationContext());
    if (ConnectionResult.SUCCESS != resultCode) {
        //Check type of error
        if(googleAPI.isUserResolvableError(resultCode)) {
           
     Toast.makeText(getApplicationContext(), "Google Play Service is not 
    install/enabled in this device!", Toast.LENGTH_LONG).show();
            //So notification
            googleAPI.showErrorNotification(getApplicationContext(), resultCode);
        } else {
           
     Toast.makeText(getApplicationContext(), "This device does not support 
    for Google Play Service!", Toast.LENGTH_LONG).show();
        }
    } else {
        //Start service
        Intent itent = new Intent(this, GCMRegistrationIntentService.class);
        startService(itent);
    }
  4. If you had a deprecated version of Google Services and have followed the previous steps, the last step is to regenerate a google-services.json, then add/replace it into your App folder on https://console.firebase.google.com/.
