How to store maps api key in local.properties and use it in AndroidManifest.xml



I am using Jetpack Compose and trying to integrate Google maps in my application. I have followed the documentation in setting up an API key. However, I am getting an error when building the project. On my local.properties file I have the following code:

MAPS_API_KEY=my_api_key

And on my AndroidManifest.xml I have the following code:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>

<application
    android:allowBackup="true"
    android:icon="@mipmap/ic_launcher"
    android:label="@string/app_name"
    android:roundIcon="@mipmap/ic_launcher_round"
    android:supportsRtl="true"
    android:theme="@style/Theme.GuideMeTravelersApp">
    <meta-data
        android:name="com.google.android.geo.API_KEY"
        android:value="${MAPS_API_KEY}" />
    <activity
        android:name=".homescreen.HomeScreen"
        android:exported="true"
        android:label="@string/title_activity_home_screen"
        android:theme="@style/Theme.GuideMeTravelersApp.NoActionBar" />
    <activity
        android:name=".registerview.RegisterView"
        android:exported="true"
        android:label="@string/title_activity_register_view"
        android:theme="@style/Theme.GuideMeTravelersApp.NoActionBar" />
    <activity
        android:name=".ExperienceDetailsView.ExperienceDetailsActivity"
        android:exported="true"
        android:label="@string/title_activity_experience_details"
        android:theme="@style/Theme.GuideMeTravelersApp.NoActionBar" />
    <activity
        android:name=".LoginView.LoginActivity"
        android:exported="true"
        android:label="@string/title_activity_login"
        android:theme="@style/Theme.GuideMeTravelersApp.NoActionBar" />
    <activity
        android:name=".MainActivity"
        android:exported="true"
        android:label="@string/app_name"
        android:theme="@style/Theme.GuideMeTravelersApp.NoActionBar">
        <intent-filter>
            <action android:name="android.intent.action.MAIN" />

            <category android:name="android.intent.category.LAUNCHER" />
        </intent-filter>
    </activity>
</application>
But, this seems that it is not enough, because I get the following error when building the project to see the preview:
java.lang.IllegalStateException: A required meta-data tag in your app's AndroidManifest.xml does not exist.  You must have the following declaration within the <application> element:     <meta-data android:name="com.google.android.gms.version" android:value="@integer/google_play_services_version" />

When I check the local.properties file it gives me a warning that the MAPS_API_KEY is not used. I am not sure how i can use it. I followed what the documentation says, but it is not working. For the map code I am trying to adapt the Crane sample to my project, which has a Google map.

Answer

Add this in your app module’s build.gradle, in the defaultConfig closure:

android {
    ...

    defaultConfig {
        Properties properties = new Properties() 

        properties.load(project.rootProject.file('local.properties').newDataInputStream())
        manifestPlaceholders = [MAPS_API_KEY: "${properties.getProperty('MAPS_API_KEY')}"]
    ...
    }
}

And add this meta data in your manifest:

<meta-data
   android:name="com.google.android.gms.version"      
   android:value="@integer/google_play_services_version" />

Here is a project example on Github.
