How to Commit code to Git / Bitbucket from Android Studio

                             On this blog I am going to explain how to commit the code to a git or bitbucket repository from android studio.  I already created a got repository on bitbucket, Here I will show how to commit and push the code to the repository I created on bitbucket.

I am doing this using the command on Android studio Terminal,

Step 1

First we need to initialize the git on out code, 

git init

         This command creates a new Git repository. It can be used to convert an existing, unversioned project to a Git repository or initialize a new, empty repository.

Step 2

Remove Existing git repository, 

rm -rf .git

If you want to remove the old or existing git repository you can run the above comment.
Here -r means "recursive", so it will delete the entire contents of the folder instead of erroring out because the folder isn't empty, and -f makes it not ask if you're really sure about deleting stuff.

Adding a remote git repository, 

git remote add origin YOUR_GIT_REPOSITORY_HTTPS_LINK

          To add a new remote, use the git remote add command on the terminal, in the directory your repository is stored at. The git remote add command takes two arguments: A remote name, for example, origin.

git remote -v

This code will help us to knew did the previous code worked correctly, Is the  fetch and push URL is applied correctly.

Switch Branch / Create New Branch 

git checkout BranchName

This comment will switch BranchName branch which is already exist in the repository.

git checkout -b NewBranchName

This code will create a new branch NewBranchName and switch to it at the same time.

git branch –show-current

This code will show you the current branch.

Step 3

Adding the files or changes to the repository, 

git add --all

         If this code is not working with you you can try the below code also, 

git add -A

         If you are in any subdirectory of the working directory, git add -A will add all files from the entire working directory, and git add . will add files from your current directory.

git add .

         If you are in any subdirectory of the working directory, git add .  will add new files and modifications, without deletions (on the current directory and its subdirectories).

git add -u

         If you are in any subdirectory of the working directory, git add -u will add stages modifications and deletions, without new files.

Step 4

Moves changes from the working directory to the local repository

git commit -m "YOUR_COMMIT_MESSAGE"

      This command takes the staged snapshot and commits it to the project history. My passing the Message you can Identify the changes we made on that commit.

Step 5

Upload local repository content to a remote repository, 

git push origin master --force

      This command  is used to upload local repository content to a remote repository. Pushing is how you transfer commits from your local repository to a remote repository.

--force This option overrides the “fast forward” restriction and matches our local branch to the remote branch.

Draw direction and by parsing direction API response

 I want to draw direction with waypoints based on the result of google direction API, From this URL I want to parse the response and draw the route on the google map.

I need to draw direction from 10.1849092, 76.3753045   to 10.3080271 , 76.3336779 

also I have some waypoints(this means need to reach destination through that points), Here is my waypoints 
10.2269749, 76.3750218
10.2632015, 76.3492569
10.2834370, 76.3420206

For this first we need to generate the request URL, Here is the format

This is is the format of URL without passing waypoints.
&waypoints=via:Charlestown,MA|via:Lexington,MA &departure_time=now

Here is the final URL from my origin , destination and waypoint locations,,76.3753045&destination=10.3080271 ,76.3336779&waypoints=10.2269749,76.3750218|10.2632015, 76.3492569|10.2834370, 76.3420206&key=YOUR_API_KEY

Here will be the response format from Google Direction Api,

From this Google Direction Api response we use the value "routes" -> "overview_polyline"-> "points" to drew the direction, 

"overview_polyline" : {
            "points" : "yhd}@madqMD]CiA]eF[_HMaCKg@]]SUIUMq@Cw@Cy@M_AUkAsCqAuA{@Y]w@oAeA}BuAaDaAkCa@{@g@y@eCsCi@g@kAs@o@OuBWwCUs@As@@cBJoAVaI`CiC|@iD~@mBf@gFjB{C`AoBl@eEnA_HxBYHiEj@wDd@uEv@aEv@{BNkA@sACwEGy@?oAHiBVs@P}@\\aEpBuHpDuG~CqDbB{FpCeDrAyCv@kIlBwLrCkCl@qF~@cDf@yEx@}BZ[DCSdBWzAWCMvCg@rF_AhAQC_@S}Ak@oAs@qAKg@EiCOuAEi@PqCj@}DBc@?_EMwB?{AJoAAoAgAEoE?aCEkACHv@AZm@XmA`@m@H@FF~@KrAYhAe@xCIhFCxC?jBDf@Bj@ZzDFn@Nt@TlBB~@N`BDd@@Jn@IlCe@t@MBLpKaB`Eu@pEeAxKoCvJ{BvBq@tAm@JT]L}B|@yCv@kIlBwLrCkCl@qF~@cDf@yEx@}BZmCb@gMtB{GbAiHhAeBR_CJaA@mACuG[gBGiABcDHwGRqQl@yANaBZ{Bl@qB~@qAv@aCjByCfCmA|@uBhAwCvAkAd@kBl@sDhA}HbCyH|BeBx@oErB}Br@sFlAoAZu@Zu@\\}A`AwAdAa@^m@n@i@x@i@dAe@tAkBpGoAjDgCtGqFfOyErL{@jBsAbCmAtBo@x@s@t@i@f@mE|C?HEJ_DjC{CbCmD`DMLFFLLv@g@f@WTE^AxBJrCRv@L\\Lf@^d@p@HZH\\Rc@L[@@PD`@J~@HR?@IBET@l@BBG@OH[Fc@dADDAE@eAEGb@IZANCFm@CUACDAHS?_AIs@QAAMZSb@I]I[e@q@g@_@]Mw@MsCSyBK_@@UDg@Vw@f@_@e@oAdAmAp@gChAwAb@qHxBsHfCcAd@sBjAoHrFgAt@}@j@w@b@cBl@eBd@aANuAJ}EBqCEuCFoD`@s@NcAXSHEHQNwG|BXbDYcDwDxAOFEOiAb@cBt@mBrA}@~@cAvAkApB_AfCuAvDy@zBi@tAq@nAk@v@g@h@aAp@wAr@}@ZaATyB\\w@B}@@wACs@EoAOuBk@cM{DaAQwAImA?uIZgDBwDCsA@_AF}@LkAX{@ZcCdA{JhEyAl@cEnBkCvAsEnCiBnAcEdCaDtB{D`CaClA_GlCsErBJPkHzCwSjJCk@`GmCzG}CtHcDzMeGlEwBlMcIvA{@MItCkB"

We are  using drawDirectionToStop() to draw the route, I am passing to the value of "points" decodeOverviewPolyLinePonts() for parse the response, Here is the functions

//This function is to parse the value of "points"
public List<LatLng> decodeOverviewPolyLinePonts(String encoded) {
    List<LatLng> poly = new ArrayList<LatLng>();
    if (encoded != null && !encoded.isEmpty() && encoded.trim().length() > 0) {
        int index = 0, len = encoded.length();
        int lat = 0, lng = 0;

        while (index < len) {
            int b, shift = 0, result = 0;
            do {
                b = encoded.charAt(index++) - 63;
                result |= (b & 0x1f) << shift;
                shift += 5;
            } while (b >= 0x20);
            int dlat = ((result & 1) != 0 ? ~(result >> 1) : (result >> 1));
            lat += dlat;

            shift = 0;
            result = 0;
            do {
                b = encoded.charAt(index++) - 63;
                result |= (b & 0x1f) << shift;
                shift += 5;
            } while (b >= 0x20);
            int dlng = ((result & 1) != 0 ? ~(result >> 1) : (result >> 1));
            lng += dlng;

            LatLng p = new LatLng((((double) lat / 1E5)),
                    (((double) lng / 1E5)));
    return poly;

private void drawDirectionToStop(DirectionData.Overview_polyline overviewPolyline) {
    if (overviewPolyline != null) {
        List<LatLng> polyz = decodeOverviewPolyLinePonts(overviewPolyline.getPoints());
        if (polyz != null) {
            PolylineOptions lineOptions = new PolylineOptions();
            lineOptions.color(ContextCompat.getColor(getActivity(), R.color.colorAccent));
