Shake to send a bug report!

Introduction

BugShaker allows your QA team and/or end users to easily submit bug reports by shaking their device. When a shake is detected, the current screen state is captured and the user is prompted to submit a bug report via email with this screenshot attached.

This library is similar to Telescope, but aims to be even easier to integrate into your apps and workflows:

  • all configuration occurs in your custom Application subclass (no view hierarchy alterations required);
  • no need to request extra permissions;
  • iOS version of this library is already available (based on the same shake-to-send mechanism).

Getting Started

  1. Specify BugShaker-Android as a dependency in your build.gradle file:

    dependencies {
        compile 'com.github.stkent:bugshaker:{latest-version}'
    }
  2. Configure the shared BugShaker instance in your custom Application class, then call assemble and start to begin listening for shakes:

    public class CustomApplication extends Application {
        @Override
        public void onCreate() {
            super.onCreate();
    
            BugShaker.get(this)
                     .setEmailAddresses("someone@example.com")   // required
                     .setEmailSubjectLine("Custom Subject Line") // optional
                     .setAlertDialogType(AlertDialogType.NATIVE) // optional
                     .setLoggingEnabled(BuildConfig.DEBUG)       // optional
                     .setIgnoreFlagSecure(true)                  // optional
                     .assemble()                                 // required
                     .start();                                   // required
        }
    }

It is recommended that logging always be disabled in production builds.
