[Android SDK] Using variables from Gradle, in Java code

This is a pretty simple issue, but I’ve seen many questions and bad solutions about it.

An example of doing that could be:

file: app/build.gradle

android{
   buildTypes{
       release{
           buildConfigField "int", "SAMPLE_INT", "52"
           buildConfigField "boolean", "SAMPLE_BOOL", "true"
           buildConfigField "String", "SAMPLE_STR", "\"release_foo\""
       }
       debug{
           buildConfigField "int", "SAMPLE_INT", "55"
           buildConfigField "boolean", "SAMPLE_BOOL", "false"
           buildConfigField "String", "SAMPLE_STR", "\"debug_foo\""
       }
   }
}

file: MainActivity.java

@Override
 protected void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState){
     String gradleStr = BuildConfig.SAMPLE_STRING;
     int gradleInt = BuildConfig.SAMPLE_INT;
     boolean gradleBool = BuildConfig.SAMPLE_BOOL;
 }

As simple as that 🙂

hope it helps for you!

[Marmalade SDK] Warning: Using default deployment icon(s)

I just found this error when deploying my Marmalade App to Android.

As it’s explained on this thread, we need to supply a default generic icon, apart from the android-specific icon options (like android-icon-xhdpi).

For those using the hub, there is a solution in the previously mentioned thread. For those who, like me, still use .mkb files, this is how I’ve solved it.

deployments
{
["Default"]
icon='data/icons/icon96.png'

... rest of the mkb
}

Deploy tool is not complaining about this anymore 🙂
