Join Chiu-Ki Chan for an in-depth discussion in this video The sample app, part of Effective Android Testing for Mobile Developers.
- [Instructor] To learn about all the different kinds of Android testing, we are going to build a recipe app together. Import the project into Android Studio. Here I have the exercise files on the desktop. You can download them from the course page. Open the Projects tab and switch from Android view to Project view. Next, let's build the app. Click on this green triangle and run it on an emulator.
Right now, the app says, "No recipes." Let's take a look at the code. Go to app, src, main, java, and then open MainActivity. If you look at the code, you can see that the MainActivity doesn't really do anything. Go to the layout file and all it has is a TextView that says "No recipe." In other words, right now this is just your classic Hello World app.
Let's take a look at the assets folder. Inside you can see some recipes. The goal of the app is to display these recipes in the list and then go to an individual recipe when the title is clicked. We will also want to allow the user to mark some recipes as favorites. To build this app, our first task is to parse the recipes into Java objects.
