Framework Dependencies

In the Creative SDK for Android, we’ve broken the functionality into smaller dependencies so that developers can include only the pieces that they need, thereby reducing the size of their apps.

Note: Your Client ID must be approved for Production Mode by Adobe before you release your app.

Dependencies Overview

Below is a table that contains all of the framework dependencies for each feature of the Creative SDK:

Adding dependencies to Gradle

To add Creative SDK dependencies to your Android project, open your Module build.gradle file and locate the dependencies block at the bottom of the file.

In the dependencies block, add the Creative SDK dependencies that you need.


An example of the correct format for an app using the Creative SDK Asset Browser UI and Creative Cloud Files API:

compile 'com.adobe.creativesdk.foundation:auth:0.9.2006-5'
compile 'com.adobe.creativesdk.foundation:assetux:0.9.2006-5'
compile 'com.adobe.creativesdk.foundation:assetcore:0.9.2006-5'
