Jacquard SDK

Getting started

Jacquardâ„¢ by Google weaves new digital experiences into the things you love, wear, and use every day to give you the power to do more and be more. Jacquard SDK is a way to connect Jacquard interactions within your apps. Create an app and bring it to life with swipes and taps through the Jacquard SDK.

What do I need to get started?

The Android Jacquard SDK supports Android versions 23 and greater.

You will need the Jacquard Tag with a supported Jacquard product (all come with one tag). Currently supported products are:

  • Levi's Trucker Jacket
  • Samsonite Konnect-i backpack
  • Saint Laurent Cit-e Backpack
    You can find links to purchase these products on the Google Jacquard website.

Sample App

To run the example project,

  • Clone the git repo
  • Open sample app build.gradle file and update your keys as below.
    buildConfigField "String", "API_KEY", "\"<Your-api-key>\""
    buildConfigField "String", "MAPS_API_KEY", "\"<Maps-api-key>\""
    resValue("string", "maps_api_key", "\"<Maps-api-key>\"")

    You can obtain API_KEY on Google Jacquard website whereas MAPS_API_KEY can be obtained from Google Maps Platform.

  • You are now all set to run the sample app.

Next Steps

Once you have completed the tutorial, the best place to go next is the API Overview which will explain the features of your Jacquard tag and gear, and how to use the API. After that, check out the API Documentation (available in the table of contents on the left of every page) and build your awesome app :)
