ViewPump

View inflation you can intercept.

ViewPump installs a custom LayoutInflater via a ContextThemeWrapper and provides an API of pre/post-inflation interceptors.

Getting started

Dependency

Include the dependency Download (.aar) :

dependencies {
    compile 'io.github.inflationx:viewpump:1.0.0'
}

Usage

Define your interceptor. Below is a somewhat arbitrary example of a post-inflation interceptor that prefixes the text in a TextView.

public class TextUpdatingInterceptor implements Interceptor {
    @Override
    public InflateResult intercept(Chain chain) {
        InflateResult result = chain.proceed(chain.request());
        if (result.view() instanceof TextView) {
            // Do something to result.view()
            // You have access to result.context() and result.attrs()
            TextView textView = (TextView) result.view();
            textView.setText("[Prefix] " + textView.getText());
        }
        return result;
    }
}

Below is an example of a pre-inflation interceptor that returns a CustomTextView when a TextView was defined in the layout's XML.

public class CustomTextViewInterceptor implements Interceptor {
    @Override
    public InflateResult intercept(Chain chain) {
        InflateRequest request = chain.request();
        View view = inflateView(request.name(), request.context(), request.attrs());

        if (view != null) {
            return InflateResult.builder()
                    .view(view)
                    .name(view.getClass().getName())
                    .context(request.context())
                    .attrs(request.attrs())
                    .build();
        } else {
            return chain.proceed(request);
        }
    }
}

Installation

Add your interceptors to the ViewPump.builder(), in your Application class in the #onCreate() method and init the ViewPump. The order of the interceptors is important since they form the interceptor chain of requests and results.

An interceptor may choose to return a programmatically instantiated view rather than letting the default inflation occur, in which case interceptors added after it will be skipped. For this reason, it is better to add your post-inflation interceptors before the pre-inflation interceptors

@Override
public void onCreate() {
    super.onCreate();
    ViewPump.init(ViewPump.builder()
                .addInterceptor(new TextUpdatingInterceptor())
                .addInterceptor(new CustomTextViewInterceptor())
                .build());
    //....
}

Inject into Context

Wrap the Activity Context:

@Override
protected void attachBaseContext(Context newBase) {
    super.attachBaseContext(ViewPumpContextWrapper.wrap(newBase));
}

You're good to go!
