Downloading and compiling ODK Collect, an Android XForms client

Using Windows syntax since if you know *nix you'll understand the windows command line.

  • Install Java 1.6+
  • Install ANT, primarily a cross platform Java build automation tool.

Download and extract Ant (1.8.1 at time of writing): http://ant.apache.org/bindownload.cgi
# Create 'ANT_HOME' environment variable.
# Add '%ANT_HOME%\bin' directory to 'PATH' environment variable.

Clone "Collect" source from repository

Install yet another SCM tool, HG Mercurial

  • defaults will suffice during setup

Get a local copy of the opendatakit collect repository with this command:

hg clone https://collect.opendatakit.googlecode.com/hg/ opendatakit-collect

Editing Code

Import project into Eclipse (loaded with Android plugin http://developer.android.com/sdk/eclipse-adt.html)

Run or Debug as desired (Tested on HTC Incredible SDK 3.0+ required)

Use an Emulator if you do not have a phone connected via USB.

To deploy you'll need to create a self signed keystore and use the .apk packaging wizard(Right click on project, menu Android tools, Export signed).
