iRestaurant | Android Universal Restaurant App Template

iRestaurant | Android Universal Restaurant App Template














Jan 20th 2018
• Added this line in the dependencies list of build.gradle (Module: app):
    compile 'com.squareup.okhttp3:okhttp:+'
Nov 2nd 2017
• Updated to Android Studio 3 and buildToolsVersion to '26.0.2'
Oct 6th 2017
• Updated minSdkVersion and compileSdkVersion to 26
• Added a custom 'pd.xml' file in the 'layout' folder and some code into Confgs.java ('showPD()'  and 'hidePD()' methods), which are used to replace the ProgressDialog code in the java files (that's because ProgressDialog is deprecated by API 26 | Android O)
So I've replaced all the:
    pd.dismiss();
    pd.setMessagge(...);
    pd.show();

with the new lines of code to show and hide the custom ProgressDialog, which start with:
   Configs.showPD(...);
   Configs.hidePD();

Can I host Parse Server on my own server?

Yes, although I don’t provide support for the setup process, you can read the official Guide here: http://parseplatform.org

What about free support for this template?

I can offer free support for bugs encountered in the original code. Instead, if you’ve edited the code and messed something up with it, I may apply some fee to fix it either via TeamViewer or by checking your app project files directly on my computer.

How do I rename the app’s package name?

Read this tutorial to learn how to rename a package name: https://hubpages.com/technology/Android-How-to-rename-an-app-package

Should I use the latest version of Android Studio to edit this template?

Yes, I always update my apps to the latest version of the IDE and you also should make sure you’ve updated the Android Tools to their latest version by the Android SDK manager.

The demo APK crashes on startup

Make sure that the minimum Android version of your device is the one listed in the FEATURES section below. If the problem persist, please contact me by my profile’s contact form and send me the Logcat message of you get when the app crashes along with the steps you made to reproduce the crash. Please note that not all real devices print an error Logcat message, in this case just run the APK into the Android Studio’s emulator and you’ll surely get the red messages about your issue.

How do I remove AdMob banner ads?

  1. Enter the .xml files where there’s an AdView and remove its code:
        <com.google.android.gms.ads.AdView
            android:id="@+id/admobBanner" 
            android:layout_width="wrap_content" 
            android:layout_height="wrap_content" 
            ads:adSize="BANNER" 
            ads:adUnitId="@string/ADMOB_BANNER_UNIT_ID" 
            android:layout_alignParentBottom="true" 
            android:layout_centerHorizontal="true">
        </com.google.android.gms.ads.AdView>
    
  2. Enter the .java files where there’s an AdRequest instance into its onCreate() method and remove its code:
            // Init AdMob banner
            AdView mAdView = (AdView) findViewById(R.id.admobBanner);
            AdRequest adRequest = new AdRequest.Builder().build();
            mAdView.loadAd(adRequest);
    
  3. Lastly, remove the play-services-ads reference in the build.gradle file:
        compile 'com.google.android.gms:play-services-ads:+'
