GSoC 2022 - OpenMRS Android Client Project 3.0.x - Final Presentation

Project Summary

Overview

The main objective of the project is to migrate the whole architecture of the Android Client Project from MVP to MVVM so that it makes the app more robust, scalable, easier to test, and make the codebase cleaner and easier to understand for newcomers. I’ve completed this objective and some of the other side objectives (Dependency injection using Hilt, and migrating from Java to Kotlin (24% to 59%)). What’s left to do is to continue converting the rest of the codebase (41%) from Java to Kotlin, and increasing the test coverage in the project.

The following is a Public Google Drive Link for the final presentation video of the project showcasing the work done throughout the GSoC coding period:

Future Work

  • Increase test coverage in the project.
  • Migrate the rest of the codebase (40%) from Java to Kotlin.
  • Update OpenMRS Android SDK library to the latest changes.
  • Fix the Continuous Integration checks for the PRs in Android Client’s GitHub repository because they ignore the failing tests.
  • Add guidelines regarding the architecture and patterns followed in the project for any future contributions (for more consistency).

Thoughts on GSoC

Lastly, I would like to thank my mentor, the org admins, and community members for their continuous support and help during the project. It was so exciting to be working on this project with this wonderful community! I learned a lot during this project and would like to thank everyone for this opportunity.
