Android CustomTabs

Chrome CustomTabs for Android demystified. Simplifies development and provides higher level classes including fallback in case Chrome isn't available on device.

Usage

How to create a new custom tab intent and start it with a keep-alive service as well as a fallback to plain old WebView should Chrome not be available on the device:

CustomTabsIntent customTabsIntent = new CustomTabsIntent.Builder()
        .addDefaultShareMenuItem()
        .setToolbarColor(this.getResources().getColor(R.color.colorPrimary))
        .setShowTitle(true)
        .setCloseButtonIcon(backArrow)
        .build();

// This is optional but recommended
CustomTabsHelper.addKeepAliveExtra(this, customTabsIntent.intent);

// This is where the magic happens...
CustomTabsHelper.openCustomTab(this, customTabsIntent,
        Uri.parse("https://github.com/saschpe/android-customtabs"),
        new WebViewFallback());

Preload CustomTabs in your Application.java to warm-up early and reduce start-up time:

// Preload custom tabs service for improved performance
// This is optional but recommended
registerActivityLifecycleCallbacks(new CustomTabsActivityLifecycleCallbacks());
