Easy Permissions

Android requires that these request come from an Activity. With Easy Permissions this is no longer an issue, you may request permission from anywhere as long as you provide Context. In addition, if you request a permission that is already granted the user will not be prompted.


How to Use

Setup

Include the below dependencies in your build.gradle project.

buildscript {
    repositories {
        jcenter()
        maven { url "http://code.newtronlabs.com:8081/artifactory/libs-release-local" }
    }
    dependencies {
        classpath 'com.android.tools.build:gradle:2.3.3'
        classpath "com.newtronlabs.android:plugin:1.1.0"
    }
}

allprojects {
    repositories {
        jcenter()
        maven { url "http://code.newtronlabs.com:8081/artifactory/libs-release-local" }
    }
}

subprojects {
    apply plugin: 'com.newtronlabs.android'
}

In the build.gradle for your app.

dependencies {
    provided 'com.newtronlabs.easypermissions:easypermissions:2.1.0'
}

Request Permission

As long as you have context you can request a permission from anywhere. Make sure you implement IPermissionsListener to receive information about what is happening with your permission request.

Example 1

This example uses a Service to request the permission, something native Android does not allow. It also automatically requests the permissions that you have enabled on your Manifest.

public class ExampleService extends Service implements IPermissionsListener
{
    @Override
    public void onCreate()
    {
        super.onCreate();
        
        // Will request all permissions from the Manifest automatically.
        EasyPermissions.getInstance().requestPermissions(this, this);
    }

    @Override
    public void onRequestSent(Set<String> set)
    {

    }

    @Override
    public void onFailure()
    {

    }
}

Example 2

This example uses a Service to request the permission, something native Android does not allow. This example allows more flexibility so that you can decide which permissions you desire.

public class ExampleService extends Service implements IPermissionsListener
{
    @Override
    public void onCreate()
    {
        super.onCreate();

        // Request as many permissions as you like. You may seperate them by commas or pass an array.
        // Make sure that these permissions are in your Manifest as well.
        EasyPermissions.getInstance().requestPermissions(this, this,
                Manifest.permission.ACCESS_FINE_LOCATION,
                Manifest.permission.CAMERA,
                Manifest.permission.CALL_PHONE,
                Manifest.permission.WRITE_EXTERNAL_STORAGE);
    }

    @Override
    public void onRequestSent(Set<String> set)
    {

    }

    @Override
    public void onFailure()
    {

    }
}

Always add the permission to your AndroidManifest.xml

As a requirement permissions must be in the Manifest.

<uses-permission android:name="android.permission.ACCESS_FINE_LOCATION"/>
<uses-permission android:name="android.permission.CAMERA"/>
<uses-permission android:name="android.permission.CALL_PHONE"/>
<uses-permission android:name="android.permission.WRITE_EXTERNAL_STORAGE"/>
