Prefs delegates

Kotlin delegates for Android Shared Preferences

This project contains three modules:

  • prefs-delegates: core module to use kotlin delegates for primitive types
  • prefs-delegates-gson: support for objects serialization using gson
  • fake-prefs: fake class to simplify testing

This library contains some extensions methods on SharedPreferences class, there are no classes to extend. It can be used in a class that contains a SharedPreferences constructor parameter:

class TokenHolder(prefs: SharedPreferences) {
    var token by prefs.string()
        private set

    var count by prefs.int()
        private set

    fun saveToken(newToken: String) {
        token = newToken
        count++
    }
}

When count++ is invoked the value from the shared preferences is read and the incremented value is saved, under the hood something like this is executed:

prefs.edit().putInt("count", prefs.getInt("count", 0) + 1).apply()

More info about are available in this Medium post.
