Lifebus

Utility to trigger one-shot action on Android lifecycle events (no stream). Contains implementation based on Android Architecture Components and own implementation with an extended set of events for Activity and Fragment.

@Overridepublicvoid onStart() {
    super.onStart();
    
    finalHoldMe holdMe = obtainSomething();
    
    lifebus.on(Lifecycle.Event.ON_STOP, () -> {
        holdMe.release();
    });
}

@Override
public void onViewCreated(@NonNull View view, @Nullable Bundle savedInstanceState) {
    super.onViewCreated(view, savedInstanceState);

    final MilkyWayBinding binding = MilkyWayBinding.bind(this, view);

    lifebus.on(FragmentEvent.VIEW_DESTROYED, binding::release);
}

The idea behind this: most lifecycle events have their counterparts. onCreate/onDestroy, onStart/onStop, onResume/onPause, etc. And having something initialized for example onStart would require releasing it onStop. No need for a stream of events. You register once, you receive an event exactly once, as there should not be 2 subsequent calls for onStart without interrupting them with at least one onStop.

Arch

implementation "io.noties:lifebus-arch:${latest}"

NB this artifact relies on android.arch.lifecycle:common-java8:1.1.1 in order to receive all lifecycle events without using annotation processor. I have tested it on a project with JavaVersion.VERSION_1_7 and it compiled and worked. But I cannot guarantee that this will be true with the future releases of architecture components.

// Pass an instance of `LifecycleOwner`
private final LifebusArch lifebus = LifebusArch.create(this);
lifebus.on(Lifecycle.Event.ON_DESTROY, () -> {});

Extended set of events

implementation "io.noties:lifebus:${latest}"

Activity via (ActivityEvent):

  • CREATE
  • START
  • RESUME
  • PAUSE
  • STOP
  • SAVE_INSTANCE_STATE (new in 1.1.0)
  • DESTROY

Fragment via (FragmentEvent):

  • ATTACH
  • CREATE
  • VIEW_CREATED
  • START
  • RESUME
  • PAUSE
  • STOP
  • SAVE_INSTANCE_STATE (new in 1.1.0)
  • VIEW_DESTROYED
  • DESTROY
  • DETACH
private final Lifebus<ActivityEvent> lifebus = 
        ActivityLifebus.create(application, activity);
private final Lifebus<FragmentEvent> lifebus = 
        FragmentLifebus.create(fragmentManager, fragment);

Please note that after ActivityLifebus receives a DESTROY event it will automatically unsubscribe any listeners (after dispatching a notification). The same for the FragmentLifebus and ViewLifebus with DETACH event.
