Yeti - Control what you share

Do you want to customize what you share, depending on what the user wants to share it with?

Let's say you want to add a "via @theTwitterAccountOfYourProduct" if the content is being shared with a Twitter client.

###BOOM! That's what Yeti does.

Add to your project

Gradle (jcenter)

compile 'me.kentin:yeti:1.1.0'

Maven

Who uses that? Seriously.

Or you can clone it and import yeti as a module.

Usage

Two options. Because there are 2 ways to share on Android.

  • using a shareActionProvider (the menu thing)
  • using a normal intent, with ACTION_SEND.

For both you're going to need an Intent anyway.

shareIntent = new Intent();
shareIntent.setAction(Intent.ACTION_SEND);
shareIntent.setType("text/plain");
shareIntent.putExtra(Intent.EXTRA_TEXT, "This is the text BEFORE you change it bro. (if you want huh)");

ShareActionProvider

Add the action provider to your menu xml.

<item
  android:id="@+id/menu_item_share"
  xmlns:app="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res-auto"
  app:showAsAction="ifRoom"
  android:title="Share"
  app:actionProviderClass="me.kentin.yeti.YetiActionProvider" />

And set the intent in your activity:

@Override
public boolean onCreateOptionsMenu(Menu menu) {
    // Inflate the menu; this adds items to the action bar/toolbar if it is present.
    getMenuInflater().inflate(R.menu.menu_actionprovideractivity, menu);

    // Locate MenuItem with YetiActionProvider
    MenuItem item = menu.findItem(R.id.menu_item_share);

    // Fetch and store ShareActionProvider
    yetiActionProvider = (YetiActionProvider) MenuItemCompat.getActionProvider(item);

    // You don't have to Override everything though, just what you want
    yetiActionProvider.setOnShareListener(shareListener);
    yetiActionProvider.setShareIntent(shareIntent);

    return true;
}

Normal way

Create the Yeti intent and then, startActivityForResult with it.

Yeti yeti = Yeti.with(activity);
Intent intent = yeti.share(yourShareIntent)
startActivityForResult(yeti.share(shareIntent), REQUEST_CODE_YETI);

Override onActivityResult and use THE SAME INSTANCE OF YETI with the data.

@Override
protected void onActivityResult(int requestCode, int resultCode, Intent data) {
    super.onActivityResult(requestCode, resultCode, data);
    if (resultCode == RESULT_OK && requestCode == REQUEST_CODE_YETI) {
        yeti.result(data, shareListener);
    }
}

shareListener here is just a OnShareListener.

Todo

  • "I want to share with Twitter, and Facebook only. Filter the apps pretty please." ---> Done in 1.1.0
  • Want something? Tell me. :)
