I’m building a system for which I want to use Google+ as authentication system. This will allow me to focus on my app instead of worrying about building a secure authentication system.
The first step to building this system is to have my Android app allow users to sign in with Google. We are going to build a simple Android app that allows users to Sign In using their Google+ account.
Scaffolding the app
To get started we can use a generator I created with yeoman. Once installed create an empty folder and run:
1 yo android-minimal
At this point you should be able to build and run a very simple app.
