Step-by-step

  1. Download the plugin.

    The latest version of the plugin can be found on our public GitHub location, https://github.com/ibm-watson-cxa/SDK_Tools/tree/master/AndroidStudioPlugin. Download the cxa-plugin-XXXX.zip file.

  2. Open Android Studio.

    See the “Prerequisities” section above if you need to download Android Studio.

    Once you open Android Studio,

    1. Follow the filepath:
      • (For Windows and Linux) Choose File > Settings > Plugins > Install plugin from Desk
      • (For Mac OS)Android Studio > Preferences > Plugins > Install plugin from Desk
    2. Browse and select the .zip file. Click Open
    3. You might need to restart your IDE (Integrated Development Environment)
  3. Add the SDK repositories.

    In your module Gradle file (usually the app/build.gradle), add rules to your root-level build.gradle file to include the SDKs maven repository.

    buildscript {
        // ...
        repositories {
            // ...
            maven {
                url "https://raw.githubusercontent.com/ibm-watson-cxa/Android_Maven/master"
            }
        }
    }
    
    repositories {
        // ...
        maven {
            url "https://raw.githubusercontent.com/ibm-watson-cxa/Android_Maven/master"
        }
    }
    
  4. Start instrumentation.

    CXA should appear as a new Menu Bar item. Click on it and select Start Instrumentation.

  5. Sync your Gradle and Build project.
