2. How to add the library

2.1. Adding the library to project

Library supports Maven Repository and AAR file.Please link library that suits your application configuration.


From SDK V5.17.1, StarIO and StarIOExtension libraries have been changed to AAR file.

Please download and confirm the newest SDK and Library from our Global Support Site.

2.1.1. Use Maven Repository

1. Insert following code in app/build.gradle.

dependencies {
    implementation 'com.starmicronics:stario:starioVersion'
    implementation 'com.starmicronics:starioextension:starioextensionVersion'
    implementation 'com.starmicronics:stariodevicesetting:stariodevicesettingversion'


Please refer to app/build.gradle in each sample of examples folder for the latest library version.

2.1.2. Manually adding the link

  1. Select the libraries in the libs folder.

    • stario.aar

    • starioextension.aar

    • StarIODeviceSetting.aar

  2. Copy the library to the libs folder of project.

  3. Insert following code in app/build.gradle.

    dependencies {
        implementation(name: 'stario', ext: 'aar')
        implementation(name: 'starioextension', ext: 'aar')
        implementation(name: 'StarIODeviceSetting', ext: 'aar')


    If using a starioextension.aar, stariodevicesetting.aar, insert also a stario.aar in the build.gradle.

(Option) When printing of QR code / PDF417 on TSP100 series, add about use of the library.

dependencies {
    implementation 'com.google.zxing:core:3.2.1'
  1. Insert following code in build.gradle.

    allprojects {
        repositories {
            flatDir {
                dirs 'libs'

2.2. Project setting

2.2.1. Edit AndroidManifest.xml

        android:maxSdkVersion="30" />
    <uses-permission android:name="android.permission.BLUETOOTH_SCAN"
        tools:targetApi="31" />
    <uses-permission android:name="android.permission.BLUETOOTH_CONNECT" />
  3. In case of USB connection, add about use of USB connection.

        <action android:name="android.hardware.usb.action.USB_DEVICE_ATTACHED" />
        <action android:name="android.hardware.usb.action.USB_ACCESSORY_ATTACHED" />
    <meta-data android:name="android.hardware.usb.action.USB_DEVICE_ATTACHED" android:resource="@xml/device_filter" />
    <meta-data android:name="android.hardware.usb.action.USB_ACCESSORY_ATTACHED" android:resource="@xml/accessory_filter" />
