PlayBasis android sdk sample

In this article, we will go to through what's inside playbasis android SDK along with it's sample apps than were created to give developers guidelines on developing their own applications.

Download Sample Android App

Playbasis android sample project, consist of the android sdk itself and sample apps.

The sample apps are as the following list.

  • - Get player info Demo
  • - Reward Store Demo
  • - Quest Demo
  • - Quiz Demo
  • - Badge Demo

This code use a sample end-point. By this way you don't have to configure anything on the dashboard for test the code. For work with the sample end-point, the API_KEY is “3416989394” and API_SECRET is “b1fa1529410702557a6fe2f3913768a0”

Setting up sample key

This part is not require for the sample end-point.

If you want to use your own endpoint you should replace the sample api_key and api_secret. Open the AndroidManifest.xml file and change the apikey and secret, meta-data value with your own key.

            android:value="\ 3416989394" />
            android:value="\ b1fa1529410702557a6fe2f3913768a0" />

A best practice is to create a String resource file with these key, and referee to it on meta-data value. If you write the key directly on the manifest file, keep “\ ” at the beginning. It's force the manifest to read the meta-data value as string.

Last step, on the, delete the .setBackendUrl("") method from Playbasis.Builder.

playbasis = new Playbasis.Builder(this)
