  • And more...

Prerequisites

If you are saving downloads outside of your application's sandbox, you will need to add the following storage permissions to your application's manifest. For Android SDK version 23(M) and above, you will also need to explicitly request these permissions from the user.

<uses-permission android:name="android.permission.WRITE_EXTERNAL_STORAGE"/>
<uses-permission android:name="android.permission.READ_EXTERNAL_STORAGE"/>

How to use Fetch

Using Fetch is easy! Just add the Gradle dependency to your application's build.gradle file.

implementation "com.tonyodev.fetch2:fetch2:2.2.0-RC7"

Next, get an instance of Fetch and request a download.

public class TestActivity extends AppCompatActivity {

    private Fetch fetch;

    @Override
    protected void onCreate(@Nullable Bundle savedInstanceState) {
        super.onCreate(savedInstanceState);

 FetchConfiguration fetchConfiguration = new FetchConfiguration.Builder(this)
                .setDownloadConcurrentLimit(3)
                .build();

        fetch = Fetch.Impl.getInstance(fetchConfiguration);

        String url = "http:www.example.com/test.txt";
        String file = "/downloads/test.txt";
        
        final Request request = new Request(url, file);
        request.setPriority(Priority.HIGH);
        request.setNetworkType(NetworkType.ALL);
        request.addHeader("clientKey", "SD78DF93_3947&MVNGHE1WONG");
        
        fetch.enqueue(request, updatedRequest -> {
            //Request was successfully enqueued for download.
        }, error -> {
            //An error occurred enqueuing the request.
        });

    }
}

Tracking a download's progress and status is very easy with Fetch. Simply add a FetchListener to your Fetch instance, and the listener will be notified whenever a download's status or progress changes.

FetchListener fetchListener = new FetchListener() {
    @Override
    public void onQueued(@NotNull Download download, boolean waitingOnNetwork) {
        if (request.getId() == download.getId()) {
            showDownloadInList(download);
        }
    }

    @Override
    public void onCompleted(@NotNull Download download) {

    }

    @Override
    public void onError(@NotNull Download download) {
        Error error = download.getError();
    }

    @Override
    public void onProgress(@NotNull Download download, long etaInMilliSeconds, long downloadedBytesPerSecond) {
        if (request.getId() == download.getId()) {
            updateDownload(download, etaInMilliSeconds);
        }
        int progress = download.getProgress();
    }

    @Override
    public void onPaused(@NotNull Download download) {

    }

    @Override
    public void onResumed(@NotNull Download download) {

    }

    @Override
    public void onCancelled(@NotNull Download download) {

    }

    @Override
    public void onRemoved(@NotNull Download download) {

    }

    @Override
    public void onDeleted(@NotNull Download download) {

    }
};

fetch.addListener(fetchListener);

//Remove listener when done.
fetch.removeListener(fetchListener);

Fetch supports pausing and resuming downloads using the request's id. A request's id is a unique identifier that maps a request to a Fetch Download. A download returned by Fetch will have have an id that matches the request id that started the download.

Request request1 = new Request(url, file);
Request request2 = new Request(url2, file2);

fetch.pause(request1.getId());

...

fetch.resume(request2.getId());

You can query Fetch for download information in several ways.

//Query all downloads
fetch.getDownloads(new Func<List<? extends Download>>() {
 @Override
        public void call(List<? extends Download> downloads) {
         //Access all downloads here
        }
});

//Get all downloads with a status
fetch.getDownloadsWithStatus(Status.DOWNLOADING, new Func<List<? extends Download>>() {
 @Override
        public void call(List<? extends Download> downloads) {
         //Access downloads that are downloading
        }
});

// You can also access grouped downloads
int groupId = 52687447745;
fetch.getDownloadsInGroup(groupId, new Func<List<? extends Download>>() {
 @Override
   public void call(List<? extends Download> downloads) {
        //Access grouped downloads
   }
});

When you are done with an instance of Fetch, simply release it.

//do work

fetch.close();

//do more work

Downloaders

By default Fetch uses the HttpUrlConnection client via the HttpUrlConnectionDownloader to download requests. Add the following Gradle dependency to your application's build.gradle to use the OkHttp Downloader instead. You can create your own custom downloaders if necessary. See the Java docs for details.

implementation "com.tonyodev.fetch2okhttp:fetch2okhttp:2.2.0-RC7"

Set the OkHttp Downloader for Fetch to use.

OkHttpClient okHttpClient = new OkHttpClient.Builder().build();

FetchConfiguration fetchConfiguration = new FetchConfiguration.Builder(this)
 .setDownloadConcurrentLimit(10)
 .setHttpDownloader(new OkHttpDownloader(okHttpClient))
 .build();

Fetch fetch = Fetch.Impl.getInstance(fetchConfiguration);

RxFetch

If you would like to take advantage of RxJava2 features when using Fetch, add the following gradle dependency to your application's build.gradle file.

implementation "com.tonyodev.fetch2rx:fetch2rx:2.2.0-RC7"

RxFetch makes it super easy to enqueue download requests and query downloads using rxJava2 functional methods.

FetchConfiguration fetchConfiguration = new FetchConfiguration.Builder(this).build();
Rxfetch rxFetch = RxFetch.Impl.getInstance(fetchConfiguration);

rxFetch.getDownloads()
        .asFlowable()
        .subscribe(new Consumer<List<Download>>() {
            @Override
            public void accept(List<Download> downloads) throws Exception {
                //Access results
            }
        }, new Consumer<Throwable>() {
            @Override
            public void accept(Throwable throwable) throws Exception {
                //An error occurred
                final Error error = FetchErrorUtils.getErrorFromThrowable(throwable);
            }
        });

FetchFileServer

Introducing the FetchFileServer. The FetchFileServer is a lightweight TCP File Server that acts like an HTTP file server designed specifically to share files between Android devices. You can host file resources with the FetchFileServer on one device and have Fetch download Files from the server on another device. See sample app for more information. Wiki on FetchFileServer will be added in the coming days.

Start using FetchFileServer by adding the gradle dependency to your application's build.gradle file.

implementation "com.tonyodev.fetch2fileserver:fetch2fileserver:2.2.0-RC7"

Start a FetchFileServer instance and add resource files that it can server to connected clients.

public class TestActivity extends AppCompatActivity {

    FetchFileServer fetchFileServer;
    
    @Override
    protected void onCreate(@Nullable Bundle savedInstanceState) {
        super.onCreate(savedInstanceState);
        fetchFileServer = new FetchFileServer.Builder(this)
                .build();
        
        fetchFileServer.start(); //listen for client connections

        File file = new File("/downloads/testfile.txt");
        FileResource fileResource = new FileResource();
        fileResource.setFile(file.getAbsolutePath());
        fileResource.setLength(file.length());
        fileResource.setName("testfile.txt");
        fileResource.setId(UUID.randomUUID().hashCode());
        
        fetchFileServer.addFileResource(fileResource);
    }

    @Override
    protected void onDestroy() {
        super.onDestroy();
        fetchFileServer.shutDown(false);
    }
}

Downloading a file from a FetchFileServer using the Fetch is easy.

public class TestActivity extends AppCompatActivity {

    Fetch fetch;

    @Override
    protected void onCreate(@Nullable Bundle savedInstanceState) {
        super.onCreate(savedInstanceState);
        FetchConfiguration fetchConfiguration = new FetchConfiguration.Builder(this)
                .setFileServerDownloader(new FetchFileServerDownloader()) //have to set the file server downloader
                .build();
        fetch = Fetch.Impl.getInstance(fetchConfiguration);
        fetch.addListener(fetchListener);

        String file = "/downloads/sample.txt";
        String url = new FetchFileServerUrlBuilder()
                .setHostInetAddress("127.0.0.1", 6886) //file server ip and port
                .setFileResourceIdentifier("testfile.txt") //file resource name or id
                .create();
        Request request = new Request(url, file);
        fetch.enqueue(request, request1 -> {
            //Request enqueued for download
        }, error -> {
            //Error while enqueuing download
        });
    }

    @Override
    protected void onResume() {
        super.onResume();
        fetch.addListener(fetchListener);
    }

    @Override
    protected void onPause() {
        super.onPause();
        fetch.removeListener(fetchListener);
    }

    @Override
    protected void onDestroy() {
        super.onDestroy();
        fetch.close();
    }

    private FetchListener fetchListener = new AbstractFetchListener() {
        @Override
        public void onProgress(@NotNull Download download, long etaInMilliSeconds, long downloadedBytesPerSecond) {
            super.onProgress(download, etaInMilliSeconds, downloadedBytesPerSecond);
            Log.d("TestActivity", "Progress: " + download.getProgress());
        }

        @Override
        public void onError(@NotNull Download download) {
            super.onError(download);
            Log.d("TestActivity", "Error: " + download.getError().toString());
        }

        @Override
        public void onCompleted(@NotNull Download download) {
            super.onCompleted(download);
            Log.d("TestActivity", "Completed ");
        }
    };
}

Fetch1 Migration

Migrate downloads from Fetch1 to Fetch2 using the migration assistant. Add the following gradle dependency to your application's build.gradle file.

implementation "com.tonyodev.fetchmigrator:fetchmigrator:2.2.0-RC7"

Then run the Migrator.

        if (!didMigrationRun()) {
            //Migration has to run on a background thread
            new Thread(new Runnable() {
                @Override
                public void run() {
                    try {
                        final List<DownloadTransferPair> transferredDownloads = FetchMigrator.migrateFromV1toV2(getApplicationContext(), APP_FETCH_NAMESPACE);
                        //TODO: update external references of ids
                        for (DownloadTransferPair transferredDownload : transferredDownloads) {
                            Log.d("newDownload", transferredDownload.getNewDownload().toString());
                            Log.d("oldId in Fetch v1", transferredDownload.getOldID() + "");
                        }
                        FetchMigrator.deleteFetchV1Database(getApplicationContext());
                        setMigrationDidRun(true);
                        //Setup and Run Fetch2 after the migration
                    } catch (SQLException e) {
                        e.printStackTrace();
                    }
                }
            }).start();
        } else {
            //Setup and Run Fetch2  normally
        }
