Installing UIKit (deprecated)

The Android SDK is delivered via Jitpack repository.
To provide greater customization options, we have open-sourced our UIKit and deprecated the managed UIKit version previously available. For the best quality and access to the latest features, we strongly recommend integrating our UIKit with the open-source version. For more details Please refer to Android UIKit Installation Guide section.


SDK supports Android 5.0 (API Level 21) and above
android {
defaultConfig {
minSDKVersion 21 // at least 21


Add the Jitpack repository in your project level build.grade at the end of repositories:
allprojects {
repositories {
maven { url '' }
Add the dependency in your module level build.grade. Find latest UIKit version at Changelog.
// add buildFeatures, compileOptions and kotlinOptions in android tag
android {
buildFeatures {
dataBinding = true
compileOptions {
sourceCompatibility JavaVersion.VERSION_1_8
targetCompatibility JavaVersion.VERSION_1_8
kotlinOptions {
jvmTarget = JavaVersion.VERSION_1_8
dependency {
implementation 'com.github.AmityCo.Amity-Social-Cloud-UIKit-Android:amity-uikit:x.y.z'
AmityUIKit already includes our SDK. Don’t install AmitySDK separately if you have already installed the UIKit.
From the version 3.x. please install the UIKit with the open source guideline here Android UIKit Installation Guide

Managing Conflicting File Generation

In your app module's build.gradle , add the following packaging options.
android {
packagingOptions {
exclude 'META-INF/'

Code Obfuscation

By using our SDK, you can use the Android ProGuard tool to obfuscate, shrink, and optimize your code. Obfuscated code can be more difficult for other people to reverse engineer. ProGuard renames classes, fields, and methods with semantically obscure names and removes unused code. However, you need to add these configurations to your ProGuard rules when using our SDK.
-keep class com.ekoapp.ekosdk.** { *; }
-keep interface com.ekoapp.ekosdk.** { *; }
-keep enum com.ekoapp.ekosdk.** { *; }
-keep class com.amity.socialcloud.** { *; }
-keep interface com.amity.socialcloud.** { *; }
-keep enum com.amity.socialcloud.** { *; }
