Starting a Feedbacker project in Android Studio

Starting a new project in Android Studio is a very simple task if we have an idea of course what we want to do. In this post, I will show step by step how to create a simple project using blank activity with fragment.

First, we should run AndroidStudio and then select from the main window: Start a new Android Studio project. After that, we will see a: Configure your new project window:


This window allows naming your project, select location of workspace and also set your company domain, for me company domain is:

Next screen allows selecting form factors on which app will be running.


I select: Phone and Tablets, also: Minimum SDK – API 21: Android 5.0(Lollipop). Why has Android 5.0 Lollipop ? Because I have a smartphone on which I can test my app – physical device, not an emulator and second: I want to build from source Android 5.0 and run in on raspberry pi 2 or 3 version. We will see in the future.


On: Add an activity to Mobile allows selecting one from several activities with automatically add necessary file to project, for example, *.xml files. I select a blank activity. If I decided to create some localization app I will choose google maps application.


Next step takes us to: Customize the Activity. Way, I choose fragments ? Because fragments allow building an application with behaves somewhat like a nested activity that can define its own layout and manage its own lifecycle. You can read more here.

 After pressing on: Finish button we will get build the layout of an application. Basic project structure with catalogs and base classes.
On this point,  we can start developing the application. Writing code and add necessary files.
