Location-track-library

this is a light weight library for getting location updates

Getting last location

LocationProvider locationProvider=new FusedLocationProvider(this);

or

LocationProvider locationProvider=new NetworkProvider(this);

you can use any of the above providers , if googleplay service is not present then it uses LocationManager by default.

LocationObj locationObj=new LocationTrack.Builder(this).withProvider(locationProvider).build().getLastKnownLocation();

Getting location updates

new LocationTrack.Builder(this).withProvider(locationProvider).build().getLocationUpdates(new LocationUpdateListener() {
                                                                                                    @Override
                                                                                                    public void onLocationUpdate(Location location) {
                                                                                    
                                                                                        
                                                                                                    @Override
                                                                                                    public void onTimeout() {
                                                                                        
                                                                                                    }
                                                                                                });

Getting current location

locationProvider.setCurrentLocationUpdate(true);
new LocationTrack.Builder(this).withProvider(locationProvider).build().getLocationUpdates(new LocationUpdateListener() {
                                                                                                        @Override
                                                                                                        public void onLocationUpdate(Location location) {
                                                                                        
                                                                                            
                                                                                                        @Override
                                                                                                        public void onTimeout() {
                                                                                            
                                                                                                        }
                                                                                                    });

Customizing the locaton request

Example distance=20;interval=3000 ;priority=HIGH

 locationProvider.addLocationSettings(new LocationSettings.Builder()
                .withDistance(distance)
                .withInterval(interval)
                .withPriority(priority)
                .build());
        new LocationTrack.Builder(this)
                .withProvider(locationProvider)
                .build()
                .getLocationUpdates(new LocationUpdateListener() {
            @Override
            public void onLocationUpdate(Location location) {


                @Override
                public void onTimeout() {

                }
            });

In your activity override the onActivityresult function and add below lines

@Override
protected void onActivityResult(int requestCode, int resultCode, Intent data) {
    super.onActivityResult(requestCode, resultCode, data);
    if (yourProvider != null) {
        yourProvider.onActivityResult(requestCode, resultCode, data);
    }
}

Add below permission in manifest

<uses-permission android:name="android.permission.ACCESS_FINE_LOCATION" />
<uses-permission android:name="android.permission.ACCESS_COARSE_LOCATION" />

Support for Rx-java, Now you can get location updates by subscribing to Observables

new LocationTrack.Builder(this)
               .withProvider(fusedLocationProvider)
               .build()
               .getLocationUpdates()
               .subscribe(new Action1<Location>() {
           @Override
           public void call(Location location) {

           }
       }, new Action1<Throwable>() {
           @Override
           public void call(Throwable throwable) {

           }
       });

Step 1. Add the JitPack repository to your build file

Add it in your root build.gradle at the end of repositories:

allprojects {
  repositories {
   ...
   maven { url "https://jitpack.io" }
  }
 }

Step 2. Add the dependency

dependencies {
 compile 'com.github.mohanmanu484:Location-track-library:2.0'
}

Step 3. Add multidex option in your app class (if probliem in running app)

android {
    compileSdkVersion 21
    buildToolsVersion "21.1.0"

    defaultConfig {
        ...
        // Enabling multidex support.
        multiDexEnabled true
    }
    ...
}

dependencies {
  compile 'com.android.support:multidex:1.0.1'
}

add the below code in your application class

@Override 
  protected void attachBaseContext(Context base) {
    super.attachBaseContext(base);
    MultiDex.install(this);
  } 

add application name in manifest

 <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
  <manifest xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android"
      package="com.example.android.myapplication">
      <application
          ...
          android:name="android.support.multidex.MultiDexApplication">
          ...
      </application>
  </manifest>
