Pointzi Legacy for Android Support Libraries Integration

Due to the deprecation of Android’s Support Libraries new features will only be added to the AndroidX version of Pointzi. If you need any support on this version of Pointzi don’t hesitate in contacting us at support@pointzi.com .

Requirements

  • Your App Version must be targeted for at least KitKat (4.4) and above
  • minSdkVersion version 19 and above.
  • Pointzi uses Java 1.8 features, please make sure your app uses it as well:

        compileOptions {
            sourceCompatibility JavaVersion.VERSION_1_8
            targetCompatibility JavaVersion.VERSION_1_8
        }
        ...
    }
    
  • If you plan to use custom images please ensure you have one of the supported image libraries below:

    1. Glide > 3.x (4.x is supported on Android-X) [recommended]
    2. Picasso == 2.5.2
  • If you are using Proguard please ensure you follow the instructions here

allprojects {
    repositories {
        maven {
            url "https://repo.pointzi.com/sdk/pointzi"
        }
        maven {
            url "https://repo.pointzi.com/sdk/streethawk"
        }
    }
}
Include Pointzi dependencies in your module/app level build.gradle.

dependencies {
    implementation "com.streethawk:pointzi:1.9.3"
}
Add the following code in your application's launcher activity, replacing ```MyApp``` with the [app_key](../../../faq/#what-is-my-app-key) from the dashboard.
1
Pointzi.INSTANCE.init(application,  "MyApp");
you can get ```application>``` through the ```getApplication()``` method or ```this```, for example:
1

3
4
import com.streethawk.library.pointzi.Pointzi;


Pointzi.INSTANCE.init(getApplication(),  "MyApp");
We recommend you also send a unique ID for the user so you can "tag" users from backend system. This is called the ```cuid```. To do this place the following snippet just after your registration and login calls.
1
2
//unique id in your system, for example customer's login id
Pointzi.INSTANCE.setCuid("user@example.com");
If you use Proguard, please follow instructions in the [Proguard configuation](#proguard-configuration) section below.
