IntegrationPreference

This library is especially for extension apps developers. Some applications like (Muzei, Series Guide) has extension capabilities. You can use their SDK to integrate your app into theirs. Or your app may need another app to be installed on the device.

Those can be rare cases but this library is just for you.

You put IntegrationPreference into your preference XML file and it checks the given Intent inside its XML tags. If it cannot find the application to handle that Intent, it opens Play Store on click to install the required application.

Usage

Detailed usage can be found in the sample project and in the following applications.

For the basic usage, you need to add IntegrationPreference into your preference xml like below.

    <com.tasomaniac.android.widget.IntegrationPreference
      android:title="Preference Title"
      android:key="pref_key"
      android:summaryOff="Description to shown when the Intent is found."
      android:summaryOn="Click here to install the required app.">

      <intent
        android:targetClass="com.google.android.apps.muzei.settings.SettingsActivity"
        android:targetPackage="net.nurik.roman.muzei"/>

    </com.tasomaniac.android.widget.IntegrationPreference>

And in your PreferenceFragment or PreferenceActivity you can add these to functions into you onResume and onPause methods to enable automatic detecting of application installs.

    @Override
    protected void onResume() {
        super.onResume();

        integrationPreference.resume();
    }

    @Override
    protected void onPause() {
        super.onPause();

        integrationPreference.pause();
    }

For other configurations and manual Intent handling, please refer to the sample project.
