Prefs

Android preferences for WINNERS!

This little tool generates wrappers for your SharedPreferences, so you can benefit from compile time verification and code completion in your IDE. You also get nice singletons for free.

Usage

1/ Add the dependencies to your project

dependencies {
    /* ... */
    annotationProcessor 'org.jraf:prefs-compiler:1.2.2' // or kapt if you use Kotlin
    implementation 'org.jraf:prefs:1.2.2'
}

2/ Define your preferences

Use the @Prefs annotation on any plain old Java object. All its (non static) fields will be considered a preference.

For instance:

@Prefs
public class Main {
    /**
     * User login.
     */
    String login;

    /**
     * User password.
     */
    String password;

    @DefaultBoolean(false)
    Boolean isPremium;

    @Name("PREF_AGE")
    Integer age;
}

Currently, the accepted types are:

  • Boolean
  • Float
  • Integer
  • Long
  • String
  • Set<String>

Optionally, use @DefaultXxx and @Name annotations (the default default is null, and the default name is the name of your field).

You can pass a file name and mode (as per [Context.getSharedPreference()](http://developer.android.com/reference/android/content/Context.html#getSharedPreferences(java.lang.String, int))) like this:

@Prefs(fileName = "settings", fileMode = Context.MODE_PRIVATE)

If you don't, PreferenceManager.getDefaultSharedPreferences(Context) will be used.

3/ Be a winner!

A class named <YourClassName>Prefs will be generated in the same package (at compile time). Use it like this:

        MainPrefs mainPrefs = MainPrefs.get(this);

        // Put a single value (apply() is automatically called)
        mainPrefs.putAge(42);

        // Put several values in one transaction
        mainPrefs.edit().putLogin("john").putPassword("p4Ssw0Rd").apply();

        // Check if a value is set
        if (mainPrefs.containsLogin()) doSomething();

        // Remove a value
        mainPrefs.removeAge();
        // Or (this has the same effect)
        mainPrefs.putAge(null);

        // Clear all values!
        mainPrefs.clear();
