2022 - 10 min. to build a free native iOS/Android app 🔷

What’s the goal and where are you guys at?


40, we’re at ~16, there are more details here:


Can you repost the solution here? the Slack Channel does not seem to be active

Any idea why it’s showing No Device when I have created an Android Virtual Device?

Hello @dylanp

What I know is if you using a real phone, it works. You can ask your question on the new jasonelle channel[email protected]
or on Android forum or Android Central

Hey guys, did you make a donation as promised to help for the plugin?

update: We’re at 22 out of 40. (Jul 10)

Let’s go guys.



So I’ve been playing around with this over the past couple weeks, and I can say that it’s more of a pain that their site makes it out to be, so having a plugin to do it automatically would be very nice.

For those of you stuck on various things, I’ll do my best to provide some insights:


The android version doesn’t have a setup script, but that’s ok. You can just import the project using android studio, and change a couple variables (the name, urls, and package name) and you’re pretty much good to go.


The setup script on the iOS versions is under the legacy folder, as someone pointed out above. In my experience, the script is broken. Taking a look through it, I think it might have something to do with the fact that the directory structure of the project has changed from when it was first written (at least in version 2.0). In order to get it to work, I followed the instructions for manual setup here:

IMPORTANT: Open the Jasonette.xcworkspace file, NOT the Jasonette.xcodeproj file. The iOS project is setup using cocoapods, and if you open the xcodeproj file directly it will fail to build. Once you’re all set up, you can change the name and url in the settings.plist and info.plist files in Xcode, detailed in the link above.

I also found this stack overflow post detailing how to change the overall project name. This also provides instructions on how to change the package id:

Although it is a cocoapods project, I ended up not having to clear and reinstall pods to get it to change. I also didn’t change the name of the “Jasonette” subfolder (the one with Actions, Components, Core, Services, Tests, Views, and Info.plist).

ONE MORE THING: If, like me, your xcode simulator wouldn’t launch the app after pressing play, go into your schema editing and under run -> Build Configuration: Debug, select the .app executable. Then save the schema and choose an iphone variant for your simulator.


I have found using Jasonelle for android v 2.1 (also seems to be an issue in v2.0) that the preload.json file which is supposed to show a screen while the app is loading doesn’t seem to ever be displayed. I let them know about this in their telegram channel and they are yet to look into it thoroughly, so we might just have to accept not being able to have a loading screen for now. I haven’t tried any of this on the iOS version, I wouldn’t even know how.


Now an unrelated issue:

Has anyone here managed to get google OAUTH authentication working with bubble + Jasonelle? I am using the Google sign-in plugin, but it seems that Google disallows oauth from within webviews and other embedded browsers. Short of spoofing the user agent, I don’t know how I’d go about addressing this.

EDIT: Removed unnecessary quote of myself


Hello @austin3

Excellent update. Have you asked if it was possible to do Google OAUTH inside Jasonelle? I hope you will find a solution and share it. If you are interested in the new Jasonelle plugin, it will be able to correct your need.

Jul 14 update: 19 on 40. Please help!

Hello @JohnMark and everyone else

I know we are waiting for the plug-in, but as that may still take a while I am struggeling to get this to work for Android. I have the most recent Andoid studio, I have v2.0 of Jasonette-Android-Master and the demo runs nicely.

Yet, when I replace the file name and set-up the jasonelle Return data from API workflow I keep getting an “offline” on the android virtual device.

Here is the code in the jasonelle API

And this is a screenshot from the android studio

Any suggestion what needs to be tweaked? I am a bit lost.

Thank you

Hello @jamesrizziandme

Bubble doesn’t support the GET command. You must convert it to a POST. I used Integromat to convert as explained above in this forum. Welcome to Bubble :partying_face:


Hi everyone. We still need your support :moneybag: for the NEW pluging. We need you. And thanks for the actual donors (and some multi donors). :boom:

Jasonelle wasn’t compatible with Bubble’s API endpoint, there’s this new version of Jasonelle that our plugin efforts could create that is compatible with the endpoint but it hasn’t been released in the main version yet, I’m using it to develop the plugin.

Later we won’t need to involve third party tools, so there’s a good future ahead (:


Hi @JohnMark

Really appreciate your help, especially since questions tend to repeat … thread is pretty long, sorry. I got the Integromat going (as described) and at least the virtual device is not showing “offline” anymore, but now am getting a white screen … :weary:

Any final thoughts? (except that I will check the donation page)

Brainless Step-by-Step to build and run on Android

  1. Create an index.json

        "$jason": {
            "body": {
                "background": {
                    "type": "html",
                    "url": "<your-web-app-url>",
                    "action": {
                        "type": "$default"
  2. Upload the index.json to a place where is public accessible.

    • Example 1
      1. Go to Bubble App -> Settings -> SEO / metatags -> Hosting files in the root directory.
      2. Upload index.json.
      3. Publish Bubble App and get the URL of index.json.
    • Example 2
      1. Upload index.json to any cloud storage service.
      2. Make index.json to be public accessible.
      3. Get the URL of index.json.
  3. Get jasonette-android source code

    $ git clone

  4. Update strings.xml.

    $ cd jasonette-android/app/src/main/res/values/
    $ vim strings.xml

    Then replace “file://jason-app.json” to the URL of your index.json, so that your App can find the index.json in runtime.

  5. Build and install the APK to your Android phone.

Some community friends might be confused like

  • Can not find the setup file mentioned in the 1st post?
  • What is the file I need to modify and add my index.json in jasonette-android?

Hoping that this summary is helpful for you.


@JohnMark, Does Jasonelle allows the use of GPS live tracking on the background for Android and IOS?



@vini_brito Does Jasonelle currently supports GPS Tracking on the background for Android and IOS?

Loved the guide! I just got amused at…

Not brainless hahah
But I got the idea.

@marcos I’ll be able to answer you that in about a month from now. Stay tuned!


Thanks man! Keep up the good work! Is the plugin already available for testing?
