2. Setup a Certificate

Follow this guide below:

3. Install SDK using Gradle

Add the Gradle repository. Enter the following values ​​inside the repositories block:
Where is the repositories block in your project?
For a project created through the latest Android Studio, it is located in settings.gradle -> dependencyResolutionManagement.
For others, build.gradle -> allprojects.
build.gradle (legacy)
dependencyResolutionManagement {
repositories {
// Add the code below
maven { url '' }
allprojects {
repositories {
// Add code below
maven { url '' }

Kotlin (MainApplication.kt)
import com.flarelane.FlareLane;
public class MainApplication extends Application {
public void onCreate() {
// Add the code below
FlareLane.initWithContext(this, "INPUT_YOUR_PROJECT_ID");
import com.flarelane.FlareLane
class MainApplication : Application() {
override fun onCreate() {
// Add the code below
FlareLane.initWithContext(this, "INPUT_YOUR_PROJECT_ID")
