notils

Never again need a .utils. package yur scurvy sea dogs!

Notils comes in two modules - notils-java contains classes that don't depend on anything from the Android SDK, while notils-android contains classes that do.

Description

notils contains a set of common classes that we use in our projects:

  • AndroidUtils, for showing the keyboard, checking running services, etc.
  • ClassCaster - to help with listeners between Activitys & Fragments
  • No need to cast when finding Fragments
  • No need to double type your types when creating collections
  • Simple Fade animations in & out done for you
  • Simple Log to give to give automatic details of where the Log executed
  • StrictMode Management - enable strict mode in one line
  • WebViews, allowing custom loading of different scenarios (raw assets, external urls)
  • ToastDisplayers for saner displaying of Toast notifications
  • SimpleDateFormatThreadSafe allowing you to use date formatting from multiple threads
  • DeveloperError - custom exceptions for explicit declaration / faster feedback when something goes wrong
  • SimpleTextWatcher - simple implementation of android.text.TextWatcher with stub implementations of each method
  • QueryUtils - easily create placeholders for ContentResolver operations selection
  • DeviceDetection - to detect whether the user has Amazon or Intel x86 devices.
  • AndroidVersion - to check the Android version in a nicer way.

Adding to your project

To start using this library, add these lines to the build.gradle of your project:

repositories {
    jcenter()
}

dependencies {
    compile 'com.novoda:notils-java:3.1.5'
    compile 'com.novoda:notils-android:3.1.5'
}

Simple usage

Here are a few examples.

  • Use the Views class to avoid casting your views over and over!
UserFragment userFragment = Fragments.findFragmentById(fragmentmanager, R.id.userFragment);
  • Use DeveloperError to let other devs know a problem in the code or prevent potential issues:
switch (menuOptionId) {
    case R.id.menu_take_picture:
        // Start the camera...
    break;
    case R.id.menu_from_gallery:
        // Open the gallery...
    break;
    default:
        throw new DeveloperError("Unhandled case in switch statement!");
}
  • Object-oriented Toasts!
Toaster toaster = new Toaster(context);
toaster.popToast("Good morning!"); // Short toast
toaster.popBurntToast("Good night!"); // Long toast
toaster.dropInBath(); // Cancells all active toasts this toaster created
  • Check the javadoc for more! The package structure allows you to easily see what's in each package.
