Migratron

Android port of MTMigration for Android to execute pieces of code that only need to run once on version updates. This could be anything from data normalization routines, "What's New In This Version" screens, or bug fixes.

Add it to yout project

Include the library in your build.gradle

dependencies{
    compile 'com.github.ffgiraldez.migratron:migratron:1.0'
}

or to your pom.xml if you are using Maven

<dependency>
    <groupId>com.github.ffgiraldez.migratron</groupId>
    <artifactId>migratron</artifactId>
    <version>1.0</version>
</dependency>

Usage

First of all you need create the Migratron object, with a Context recomended the application context and a SharedPreference to store version information needed to handle correctly the diferents Migration

SharedPreferences preferences = context.getSharedPreferences(PREFERENCES_NAME, Mode.Private);
Migratron migratron = new Migration(context.getApplicationContext(), sharedPrefenences)

Migratron provides two kind of migrations, one to use when you need some code that run every time you update your application. Use updateMigrationmethod

When you need a piece of code that runs every time you update your application. Use the applicationUpdateBlock: method.

migratron.updateMigration(new Migration() {
    @Override
    public void migrate(Context context) {
        rater.reset();
    }
})

the other migratrion is specific to a version, use addMigration(int versionCode,Migration migration) and Migratron will ensure that the Migration passed it's only ever run once for that version

migratron.addMigration(8, new Migration() {
    @Override
    public void migrate(Context context) {
        showVersionNotesController.enable();
    }
})

Once all your migrations are configured in a Migratron object execute it calling

migratron.migrate();

This allow programers configure the Migratron and execute the migrations in a lazy way only when needed, usualy in the onCreate method of the Application.

Migratron inspect your AndroidManifest.xml for your actual versionCode and keeps track of last migration.

It will migrate all un-migrated Migration inbetween. For example, let's say you had the following migrations:

migratron.addMigration(9, new Migration() {
    @Override
    public void migrate(Context context) {
        // Some 9 stuff
    }
})
migratron.addMigration(10, new Migration() {
    @Override
    public void migrate(Context context) {
        // Some 10 stuff
    }
})

If a user was at version 8, skipped 9, and upgraded to 10, then both the 9 and 10 migrations would run.

Notes

Migratron assumes version numbers are incremented in a logical way, i.e. 101 -> 102, 110 -> 120, etc.

Version numbers that are past the version specified in your app will not be run. For example, if your AndroidManifest.xml file specifies 120 as versionCode, and you attempt to migrate to 130, the migration will not run.

Migrations are executed on the thread the migration is run on. Background/foreground situations should be considered accordingly.

Contributing

This library does not handle some more intricate migration situations, if you come across intricate use cases from your own app, please add it and submit a pull request. Be sure to add test cases.
