Installation

First, declare the dependency for the Storyly Monetization SDK in your app’s module Gradle file (usually app/build.gradle).

android {
    dependencies {
        ...
        // You should add this line
        implementation 'com.appsamurai.storyly:storyly-monetization:<latest-version>'
        ...
    }
}

📘

Tip

Please do not forget to replace <latest-version>. The latest version is Maven CentralMaven Central

🚧

Warning

Storyly Monetization SDK targets Android API level 17 (Android 4.2, Jelly Bean) or higher.

🚧

Warning

You need to add Java 1.8 compatibility configuration as well. In your app’s module Gradle file (usually app/build.gradle), please add the following instructions:

android {
    compileOptions {
        // You should add these two lines
        sourceCompatibility JavaVersion.VERSION_1_8
        targetCompatibility JavaVersion.VERSION_1_8
    }
}

Initialize StorylyAdProvider

You need to set a StorylyAdProvider to your StorylyView instance to enable monetization feature.

storylyView.storylyAdViewProvider = StorylyAdViewProvider(this, ADMOB_NATIVE_AD_ID)
storylyView.setStorylyAdViewProvider(new StorylyAdViewProvider(this, ADMOB_NATIVE_AD_ID));

Just hit the run. Now, you should be able to enjoy Storyly with ads :tada:!
