B4A Library Scringo for Basic4Android is live!

[Lib] Scringo for Basic4Android is live!

Hi all, We just released Scringo's support for Basic4Android.

For those of you who don't know Scringo, it's a Social Sidebar with lots of stuff you can add there. Just a few features:
1. Chat - your users can talk to each other
2. Activity Feed - your users can see what interesting things other people are doing in your app
3. Like button - you can add it and let users see what other people like in your app
4. Feedback - let your users send you feedback about your app
5. Rate us - let them rate the app
6. Push notifications - send push notifications and system messages to your users
7. Chat room - start a topic and let your users say express themselves (managed and moderated using the dev zone)
8. Custom buttons - don't know where to place a button - place it on the sidebar and get a notification once it is clicked

And lotsa other stuff. It's all configurable from our dev zone, no need for an upgrade to add or remove features once you integrated the SDK.

And of course, it's all free.

Here's a demo project: http://www.basic4ppc.com/android/files/ScringoB4AExample.zip

Attached are the library files (jar and xml). Place them in your libs folder and include them in your b4a project.

Then you'll need to follow these steps:
1. Register in scringo.com, get an App ID, and download the SDK. (use this link instead of the one in the dev zone, customized for B4A devs: https://dev.scringo.com/downloads/scringo-android-2.2.2-b4a.zip)
2. Open the zip and place the jars from the libs folder in your b4a libs folder (should be the same folder as above).
3. Add the contents of the ScringoManifest.txt from the zip using the B4A Manifest Editor (Project -> Manifest Editor -> Paste this: )
AddApplicationText(
<Contents of ScringoManifest.txt>
)
4. Merge the res folder from the ScringoResources with your Objects/res, and set them all to read-only (In a Windows Browser, Right click the folder -> Read Only, no need to do it one by one)
5. add the scringo.properties from the zip to the Files folder and add it to the B4A project in the Files tab, edit the file and add your Scringo app ID in the scringo.app.id property
6. Add some (or all) of this code to your code (assuming you have a MainLayout with Button1 in it):
B4X:
Sub Globals
   Dim myScringo As Scringo
   
End Sub

Sub Activity_Create(FirstTime As Boolean)
   Activity.LoadLayout("MainLayout")
   myScringo.Initialize
End Sub

Sub Activity_Resume
   myScringo.onStart
End Sub

Sub Activity_Pause (UserClosed As Boolean)
   myScringo.onStop
End Sub

Sub Activity_KeyPress (KeyCode As Int) As Boolean
If KeyCode = KeyCodes.KEYCODE_BACK Then
   If myScringo.onBackPressed Then
      Return True
   End If
End If
Return False

End Sub

Sub Button1_Click
   myScringo.openMenu
End Sub

That's it, you're good to go. Tell us how it went!

For any questions, you can drop me a line at ofer@scringo.com

I keep getting an error at that call...
Log:
android.content.res.Resources$NotFoundException: Resource ID #0x0

* I've already merged both res folders

I really don't know what the problem is. The only time I had the problem was because I forgot to mark the res folder as read only.
It seems to be that there is some file missing in the res folder, and this only can happen if you forgot to put is as read only because it not, when you compile, all the no-read only files are erased
