Build Your First Android App

Get started with Mitter.io by building a fully functional app that sends/receives messages in a group of users.

NOTE The Getting Started docs show you how to build your first Mitter.io app with our cloud-hosted sandbox only.

To use it with your docker container, simply change the base API Url (when creating the mitter object) to the address of your running docker container.

Introduction

Before we get started with this tutorial, let’s have a quick primer on what Mitter.io is and what we will be building in this tutorial.

What is Mitter.io?

Mitter.io is a messaging platform that allows you to build apps around messaging. You can treat a message as something more than just an envelope for text with our platform.

What are we going to build?

In this tutorial, we’re going to build a simple chat app which allows private replies to specific participants in a group.

Where's the repository for this project?

You can find the complete project hosted on GitHub. Feel free to clone the repository and play around.
