HowTo use ADB to monitor logs

logo

Join Community: http://Community.AppyBuilder.com

ADB is a command-line utility that that can be used to control your device over USB from a computer. It will allow you to install / uninstall and or view logs on your device. This could be very handy when there are issues with a specific app and you like to view the logs for information that may lead to identify the cause of error.

In this post, we’ll discuss how to install and use ADB.

Installation:
ADB comes with Android SDK. However, you can download ONLY the ADB files from HERE. Download it from the link and copy into a file like c:\tools\adb
Using this approach, there are no specific installation that are needed. Just copy files onto a folder like:
c:\tools\adb

Usage:
There are times that it would be necessary to view / monitor logs on your device. To accomplish this, you need to use a USB cable and enable debugging on your device. Follow instruction HERE for enabling USB debug.

Next, shell to DOS and CD to folder that you installed ADB:
cd c:\tools\adb

To start ADB, enter:
adb logcat

Above command will start displaying logs. Now you can start any app and then view / capture the log out.
To narrow down the amount of logs, you can change the Log Level. For example, if you log to only view ERRORS, enter:
adb logcat *:E

For a list of ADB commands, visit site HERE

Recommendation:
An alternative to DOS Command Window is ConEmu which can be downloaded from sourceforge HERE. It includes multi-tab features and ability to easily copy the logs.

Easy Charts with AppyBuilder

logo

Google Charts provides a variety of charts designed for data visualization. These charts are based on pure HTML5/SVG technology, so no plugins are required. All of them are interactive, and many are pannable and zoomable.  AppyBuilder includes a feature that allows you to add these charts to your mobile apps in a few simple steps.

Below is an app that was developed in AppyBuilder GOLD in matter of minutes!

AppyBuilder includes a WebViewer component. The WebViewer component includes a block called WebViewer.LoadHtml (see image above) that will allow you to load any type of html and set it to WebViewer. In above case, the html is set to THIS html, allowing for animated / interactive chart.

Using Multiple Database – TinyDB

logo

TinyDB is a Storage component that can be used to store data for an app; i.e it is a persistent data store for the app. The data stored in a TinyDB will be available each time the app is run. An example might be a game that saves the high score and retrieves it each time the game is played.

Data for TinyDB is stored using key (tag), value pairs. To store data, you specify the tag it should be stored under. Subsequently, you can retrieve the data that was stored under a given tag. The value for a tag can be a simple text or complex data structure like List of Lists.

Each app has its own data store. By default, there is only one data store per app. Even if you have multiple TinyDB components, they will use the same data store. Image below shows using 2 TinyDB but the underlying code is using the same data-store.

If your app has complex requirement and you require Multiple Independent data-stores, then AppyBuilder includes such feature / capability and will allow you break your data into multiple separate independent storage – see image below.

Image below shows how this can be accomplished. In this example, we have used 2 TinyDB, but notice that using block TinyDB.DatabaseName, we are assigning a unique name to our database. This name can be anything as long as it is unique and does not contain special characters or embedded spaces. For purpose of this tutorial, we are using same tag (platform) to store different values in each of the databases. When we retrieve data, you’ll notice that each database returns the correct value that it stored.
