Current Configuration Settings for Android Bumble Bee (2022)

I was able to get the project to run by doing the following:

  1. Installing the Java 8 SDK
  2. Creating a new project with an Empty Activity and a minimum SDK of 25
  3. Adding the following lines of code from the Glide documentation to my build.gradle(module) file xml implementation 'com.github.bumptech.glide:glide:4.13.0' annotationProcessor 'com.github.bumptech.glide:compiler:4.13.0'
  4. Downloading the project from Github
  5. Copying the images into the project I created
  6. Copying the ImageView from activity_main.xml into the project I created. You only want to copy the ImageView. The constraintlayout format has changed. If you copy the entire file, you'll break your code.
  7. Copying everything inside the MainActivity class inside the MainActivity class of the new file. Again, you don't want to copy the class declaration or any of the imports. Android has changed where these resources are found.
  8. If you don't have Android Studio set to optimize imports, you'll need to go through and import the relevant classes.

Here's a look at my build.gradle(Module) file

plugins {
    id 'com.android.application'

android {
    compileSdk 32

    defaultConfig {
        applicationId "com.treehouse"
        minSdk 25
        targetSdk 32
        versionCode 1
        versionName "1.0"

        testInstrumentationRunner "androidx.test.runner.AndroidJUnitRunner"

    buildTypes {
        release {
            minifyEnabled false
            proguardFiles getDefaultProguardFile('proguard-android-optimize.txt'), 'proguard-rules.pro'
    compileOptions {
        sourceCompatibility JavaVersion.VERSION_1_8
        targetCompatibility JavaVersion.VERSION_1_8

dependencies {

    implementation 'androidx.appcompat:appcompat:1.4.1'
    implementation 'com.google.android.material:material:1.5.0'
    implementation 'androidx.constraintlayout:constraintlayout:2.1.3'
    testImplementation 'junit:junit:4.13.2'
    androidTestImplementation 'androidx.test.ext:junit:1.1.3'
    androidTestImplementation 'androidx.test.espresso:espresso-core:3.4.0'
    implementation 'com.github.bumptech.glide:glide:4.13.0'
    annotationProcessor 'com.github.bumptech.glide:compiler:4.13.0'

Here is my build.gradle(Project) file

// Top-level build file where you can add configuration options common to all sub-projects/modules.
plugins {
    id 'com.android.application' version '7.1.2' apply false
    id 'com.android.library' version '7.1.2' apply false

//repositories {
//    google()
//    mavenCentral()

task clean(type: Delete) {
    delete rootProject.buildDir

Hope this helps!
