download-manager

This is a copy of the http://developer.android.com/reference/android/app/DownloadManager.html but it allows for downloading to private internal storage.

Description

The download manager is a system service that handles long-running HTTP downloads. Clients may request that a URI be downloaded to a particular destination file. The download manager will conduct the download in the background, taking care of HTTP interactions and retrying downloads after failures or across connectivity changes and system reboots. Instances of this class should be obtained through getSystemService(String) by passing DOWNLOAD_SERVICE. Apps that request downloads through this API should register a broadcast receiver for ACTION_NOTIFICATION_CLICKED to appropriately handle when the user clicks on a running download in a notification or from the downloads UI. Note that the application must have the INTERNET permission to use this class.

Adding to your project

To start using this library, add these lines to the build.gradle of your project:

repositories {
    jcenter()
}

dependencies {
    compile 'com.novoda:download-manager:0.2.44'
}

If using Proguard follow the instructions here

Simple usage

Simple example source code can be found in this demo module: Android Simple Demo

You will need to add this to your Android application build.gradle:

android {
  defaultConfig {
       // other things

       manifestPlaceholders = [downloadAuthority: "com.your.unique.authority"]
  }
}

You also need to create this file in this exact package (we hope to do this for you in the future):

package com.novoda.downloadmanager;

public class Authority {
    public static final String AUTHORITY = "com.your.unique.authority";
}

There are many more features. See Advanced Usage, or take a look at the demo-extended sample app for details.
