Abstract

We will present a powerful solution to remotely configure an Android app. If you want to configure features, URLs or other aspects (e.g. A/B testing) our tool will enable you to do that based on virtually everything such as app state, user accounts, actions and so on. CoCoS consists of a service, a client library and a command line tool to deliver, read and set up configurations. Configurations are based on a freely defined context sent from the app to the service. This service is comparable to Firebase Remote config but has infinite flexibility and will be open source. This talk gives you an overview of the capabilities of CoCoS and how we use it to make our app remotely configurable in a powerful and easy way.
