Download

Download the latest .aar via Maven:

xml
    
      com.linkedin.shaky
      shaky
      3.0.4
    

or Gradle:

    implementation 'com.linkedin.shaky:shaky:3.0.4'

Getting Started

Add the following to your

AndroidManifest.xml
application tag:
    
        
    

Create the corresponding

res/xml/filepaths.xml
resource:
    

This allows files captured by Shaky to be shared with external apps. In this case, whatever app picks up the email Intent. Note: you only need these xml permissions to share files with external apps. For more information see FileProvider.

In your

Application
subclass:
    public class ShakyApplication extends Application {
        @Override
        public void onCreate() {
            super.onCreate();
            Shaky.with(this, new EmailShakeDelegate("[email protected]"));
        }
    }

For a complete example, see the demo app.

Advanced Usage

Your app can define custom behavior by subclassing

ShakeDelegate
and implementing the
void submit(Activity, FeedbackResult)
method (e.g. to send the data to a custom server endpoint).

In addition, you can implement the

Bundle collectData()
to collect extra app data including device logs, user data, etc. You will also need to handle how to send the extra data collected in your

submit
method.

If you want to programmatically trigger the feedback collection flow, rather than listening for shake events, you can call

Shaky#startFeedbackFlow()
on the object returned by
Shaky.with()
. See the demo app for a full example of how to do this.

Snapshots

You can use snapshot builds to test the latest unreleased changes. A new snapshot is published after every merge to the main branch by the Deploy Snapshot Github Action workflow.

Just add the Sonatype snapshot repository to your Gradle scripts:

gradle
repositories {
    maven {
        url "https://oss.sonatype.org/content/repositories/snapshots/"
    }
}

You can find the latest snapshot version to use in the gradle.properties file.
