Using Smart School Android App, you must have running Smart School version 6.2.0 on your online server with domain or subdomain or ip address. Smart School Android App fetches Smart School data through Smart School Api so before using app you must install Smart School Api on your same hosting server at any place with domain or subdomain or ip address. Your web server must be running PHP 5.6 or higher and Mysql 5.5 or higher. We have tested it with Windows, Mac and Linux but for optimum performance we will recommend to use Linux with Apache webserver. Below are a list of items you should ensure your host can comply with.
Smart School Android App can be install and configure in following 4 steps -
Initially your Smart School version 6.2.0 should be up and running and must be registered with your Envato Market Purchase Code. There should be atleast one student available for login through mobile app. If you have yet not installed Smart School then check Smart School documentation in Smart School downloaded package. Here in this documentation we assume Smart School version 6.2.0 is installed at base_url https://demo.smart-school.in/
Smart School Api is built on PHP Codeigniter. Its HTTP based api which sends and receives data in JSON format. Smart School Api is a middleware which provides communication between Smart School Android App and Smart School. Smart School Android App cannot directly interact with your Smart School so it require Smart School Api which fetches Smart School data and send to Smart School Android App.
In your Smart School Android App downloaded package from codecanyon, you can find folder smart_school_api_src which contains Smart School Api code files. To install Smart School Api on your server first create a folder with name api under your Smart School installation folder on your server. Now just copy all files under smart_school_api_src folder and paste in your Smart School api folder. Now further we need to edit two configuration files.
1. Enter your Smart School Api url in \application\config\config.php file base_url. So Smart School Android App can fetch data from Smart School Api.
2. Enter your Smart School version 6.2.0 database details in \application\config\database.php file for hostname, username, password, database. So Smart School Api can fetch data from Smart School.
At this point we have installed and configured Smart School Api.
In Smart School login to superadmin and go to System Settings > General Setting here in Mobile App Api URL enter Smart School Api url. If you want to make changes in Smart School Android App colors then enter your desired color code in Mobile App Primary Color Code and Mobile App Secondary Color Code then click on Save button.
