ButterKnifeLite

##Android View initializer and Click Listener boiler plate code remover

####This library is based on the ideas of removing boilerplate code like ButterKnife but with use cases targeted for view binding of xml. Resulting is a vey tiny library.

## @BindView annotation to refer any view defined in XML

 @BindView(R.id.txtView)
 public TextView textView1;

 

## @OnClick annotation to set onClick method for any view defined in XML

@OnClick(R.id.btn1)
public void onBtn1Click(){
    textView1.setText("Btn 1 click");
}

## @OnLongClick annotation to set OnLongClick method for any view defined in XML

@OnLongClick(R.id.btn2)
private void onBtn2LongClick(){
    txtView.setText("Btn 2 long click");
}

##For Any class with inflated view from XML can be used as described below ##For example in a Fragment

public class MyFragment extends Fragment {

    @BindView(R.id.txtView)
    public TextView txtView;

    @Override
    public View onCreateView(LayoutInflater inflater, ViewGroup container, Bundle savedInstanceState) {
        View promptsView = inflater.inflate(R.layout.my_fragment, container, false);
        ButterKnifeLite.bind(this, promptsView);
        return promptsView;
    }

    @OnClick(R.id.btn1)
    public void onBtn1Click(){
        txtView.setText("Btn 1 frag click");
    }

    @OnClick(R.id.btn2)
    public void onBtn2Click(){
        txtView.setText("Btn 2 frag click");
    }
}

Note: In version 0.0.1 and 0.0.2 we had to call ButterKnifeLite.unbind(obj) to remove the binded class. It is not required from version 0.0.3

#Gradle

  compile 'com.mindorks:butterknifelite:0.0.3'

Proguard Note:

If you are using proguard, then add this rule in proguard-project.txt

Recent Libraries:

# PlaceHolderView

PlaceHolderView helps create views without any adapter in a very modular form. It uses the power of RecyclerView and enhances it to another level. For the first time with the list view comes card stack view.

# JPost

JPost is a pubsub library based on massages over a channel. It's very efficient and much powerful than other pubsub libraries. It prevents memory leak and increases code control. Also, provide a mechanism to run code asynchronously.

Why should you use JPost library

  1. In contrast to the existing pub-sub libraries, it hold the subscribers with weakreference. Thus it doesn't create memory leaks.
  2. Single message can be sent to selected subscribes. This avoids the problem of event getting received at undesirable places. Thus minimising the chances of abnormal application behaviour.
  3. The subscriber addition can be controlled by using private channels. It minimises the chances of adding subscribes by mistake to receive undesirable messages.
  4. It is a tiny library < 55kb . Thus not effecting the application overall size.
  5. It facilicates synchronous as well as asynchronous message delivery and processing.
  6. It provides a mechanism to run code asynchronously.
