MomoURU Biblioteca (MomoURU Library) is a simple application to see the online catalog of library books of the Universidad Rafael Urdaneta (Rafael Urdaneta University) in Maracaibo, Venezuela, and is a sister project of MomoURU.

It was developed to have a more friendly access to the online catalog that the university has, as the web site is not easily accessible through mobiles and also is visually outdated.

Currently it's only available for Android devices, and it's published as an open-source project.


Source code of this application is available in Github.

The university doesn't provide an API to access the information in their books database, so I reverse engineered their website to do queries based on the results obtained from HTTP requests, processing the returned HTML contents. This would be similar to consuming the website as if it were a webservice.


Version 1.1:

- Started using ButterKnife library.

- Replaced Shared Preferences to SQLLite storage for Favorites.

- Minor changes.

Version 1.0:

- Initial version. It has basic querying functionality and details view of an item. Added functionality to save books as favorites locally.
