Fabric

Many powerful tools, one easy platform.

Fabric is a mobile platform with modular kits you can mix and match to build the best apps. Fabric is tightly integrated into your dev environment, making adding new services a breeze. Start with what you need from Fabric today, and quickly add more kits as your needs grow.

Getting Started

To get up and running with Fabric, sign up for a free account and follow the on-screen instructions to quickly get set up!

Once your account is configured, it’s time to onboard your first app to Fabric by installing a kit. Kits can be installed manually or using the Fabric IDE plugin for Android Studio or IntelliJ.

Note

If you have multiple accounts press Ctrl+L with the Fabric plugin in focus to log out.

If you have an Application subclass, then you can place Fabric.with() in the onCreate() method. Otherwise, if you have multiple launch activities in your app, then add Fabric.with() to each launch activity. Fabric is only initialized the first time you call start, so calling it multiple times won’t cause any issues.
