Adding HTML to Android applications the basics.
After developing an application you often get questions from users. You solve this by creating a FAQ or Help component in your Application. For these components you can use HTML in your Android application.
You can add HTML in Android Studio by creating an assets folder and inserting your HTML here.
In the tutorial below, I explain how you can create an asset folder and add an html file to it. The tutorial contains screenshots.
Let’s add HTML to an Android app.
Before we start.
Have you already installed Android Studio on your device?
If not, you can download it here.
Open your Android project in Android Studio.
Find App in the top left corner. Click with right mouse button on App.
A menu will open, Go to Folder and search for Assets Folder.
A screen opens to add a New Android Activity. Do not change the Target Source Set unless you know what you are doing. Then click on Finish.
An Assets folder has now been created. Right click again on the Assets folder this time, choose new and then click on File.
Give your .html file a name. I named mine index.html.
Add your html content or copy your html file from your PC in Android Studio.
You can add the .html file to your application by adding the following code snippet to your MainActivity.java.
Make sure that if you copy this you change the file name.
