## Code Style
We follow the [Android Java style](https://source.android.com/source/code-style.html).
Some key points:
We follow the default Android Studio code formatter (e.g. `Ctrl-Alt-L`). This
should be more or less the same as [Android Java

## Debugging
To get all the logcat messages by F-Droid, you can run:
adb logcat | grep `adb shell ps | grep org.fdroid.fdroid | cut -c10-15`
## Building tips
* Use gradle with `--daemon` if you are going to build F-Droid multiple times.
* If you get a message like `Could not find com.android.support:support-...`,
make sure that you have the latest Android support maven repository.
* When building as part of AOSP with `Android.mk`, make sure you have a
recent version of Gradle installed as `gradlew` will not be used.
## Running the test suite
Before pushing commits to a merge request, make sure this passes:
./gradlew checkstyle pmd lint
In order to run the F-Droid test suite, you will need to have either a real device
connected via `adb`, or an emulator running. Then, execute the following from the
command line:
./gradlew check
Note that the CI already runs the tests on an emulator, so you don't
necessarily have to do this yourself if you open a merge request as the tests
will get run.
Many important tests require a device or emulator, but do not work in GitLab CI.
That mean they need to be run locally, and that is usually easiest in Android
Studio rather than the command line.
### Running tests in Android Studio
For a quick way to run a specific JUnit/Robolectric test:
Later versions of Android Studio require tests to be run with a "Working directory"
of `$MODULE_DIR$`.
[To make this the default behaviour](https://code.google.com/p/android/issues/detail?id=158015#c11),
close any projects to get the Welcome dialog. Then choose _Configure > Project Defaults >
Run Configurations > Defaults > Android JUnit_, and change "Working directory"
to `$MODULE_DIR$`. If you already have a project setup in Android Studio, you
may also need to change the default in _Run > Edit Configurations... > Defaults >
Android JUnit_.
./gradlew testFullDebugUnitTest --tests *LocaleSelectionTest*
## Versioning
For a quick way to run a specific emulator test:
Each stable version follows the `X.Y` pattern. Hotfix releases - i.e. when a
stable has an important bug that needs immediate fixing - will follow the
`X.Y.Z` pattern.
./gradlew connectedFullDebugAndroidTest \
-Pandroid.testInstrumentationRunnerArguments.class=org.fdroid.fdroid.MainActivityExpressoTest
Before each stable release, a number of alpha releases will be released. They
will follow the pattern `X.Y-alphaN`, where `N` is the current alpha number.
These will usually include changes and new features that have not been tested
enough for a stable release, so use at your own risk. Testers and reporters
are very welcome.
The version codes use a number of digits per each of these keys: `XXXYYYZNN`.
So for example, 1.3.1 would be `1003150` and 0.95-alpha13 would be `95013`
(leading zeros are omitted).
## Making releases
Note that we use a trailing `50` for actual stable releases, so alphas are
limited to `-alpha49`.
This is an example of a release process for **0.95**:
* We are currently at stable **0.94**
* **0.95-alpha1** is released
* **0.95-alpha2** is released
* **0.95-alpha3** is released
* `stable-v0.95` is branched and frozen
* **0.95** is released
* A bug is reported on the stable release and fixed
* **0.95.1** is released with only that fix
As soon as a stable is tagged, master will move on to `-alpha0` on the next
version. This is a temporary measure - until `-alpha1` is released - so that
moving from stable to master doesn't require a downgrade. `-alpha0` versions
will not be tagged nor released.
