I need an android app skeleton built using Java for a REST client.
By skeleton, I mean structural base for a project. I am experienced with PHP so a good skeleton example I can give is [url removed, login to view] It has a setup for various features like (I will mark their requirement):
- Templating (needed)
- Firewall (preferred)
- Routing (needed)
- Profiler (preferred)
- Debugger (needed)
- Logging (needed)
- Forms (needed)
- Validators (needed)
- Caching (needed)
- Testing (needed)
This skeleton will be used to build an API client in future. So, all development should be done with this in mind. This project will act as a POC or a prototype for that purpose.
On top of the skeleton, I need one functionality property implemented. i.e. Authenticating with an API Server and showing a welcome screen.
The design is not important at this stage. The most basic design will work. But it has to be clean and easily extendable and customizable.
I don't want to use any full-featured framework until there is a very good reason for it, so I am open for discussion. But I do require a framework that is suitable for an API client. For example, if the project was for API Server (which it's not), it would be a framework built around MVC Pattern, Repository pattern, Facade, Singleton etc.(Just an example, you don't need to know them, just knowing what I am referring to will suffice)
After the prototype is approved, there will be further work on the project.
On your bid, please
- Include the technologies you are going to use and why?
- Details you need before you can start the work. (This will represent your expertise)
- Questions you have about the project.
- The framework and design patterns you will use.
- Fully documented structured code
- Fully documented build instructions
- Instructions to configure the project
- Instructions to launch the prototype
For a skeleton, I think $30 is fair. There must be many open source projects (like the one I linked above) and it just may need to customized for my requirement or for an API Client. But I am open to paying a good price for good quality work.
