LoggerPreferences

Get to know which class changed the value in SharedPreferences.

Installation

In the root level build.gradle file add:

allprojects {
    repositories {
        ...
        maven { url 'https://jitpack.io' }
    }
}

Now add the dependency:

dependencies {
    compile 'com.github.gurleensethi:LoggerPreferences:v1.0.0'
}

Usage

Initialize

LoggerPreferences will log any action that is taken with SharedPreferences, be it changing values or retrieving them. To enable logging, you have to initalize LoggerPreferences.

LoggerPreferences.init(true, true);

The first parameter tells LoggerPreferences to log everytime when a value is changed in SharedPreferences and the second parameter tells to log everytime a value is retrieved.

Getting a Reference

There are two ways you can obtain a reference. First is by providing a Context, filename ( Stirng) and mode ( int).

//LoggerPreferences.get(Context, fileName, mode);
LoggerPreferences preferences = LoggerPreferences.get(this, "sp_file", Context.MODE_PRIVATE)
        .with(this);

Second is by providing an object of SharedPreferences directly.

//LoggerPreferences.get(SharedPreferences);
LoggerPreferences preferences = LoggerPreferences.get(getSharedPreferences("sp_file", Context.MODE_PRIVATE))
        .with(this);

You also have to call the function with(Object) and pass in the object which is responsible for interacting(changing/retrieving) with SharedPreferences. with takes in a parameter of type Object. If you don't call with() then by default LoggerPreferences will logged as the file name, so make sure to call with().

API

LoggerPreferences is a wrapper around SharedPreferences. It has all the functions provided by SharedPreferences and works in exactly the same manner.

So if in the MainActivity you change a String value.

preferences.edit()
        .putString("key_string", "new value")
        .apply();

In logcat you will get:

D/LoggerPreferences: [String] MainActivity changed the value of Key[key_string] from [old value] to [new value].

If you are retrieving a String value:

String value = preferences.getString("key_string", null);

In logcat you will get:

D/LoggerPreferences: [String] MainActivity is retrieving the value of Key[key_string] which is set to [new value].

LoggerPreferences has all the functions provided by SharedPreferences and SharedPreferences.Editor.

public class MainActivity extends AppCompatActivity {

    @Override
    protected void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {
        super.onCreate(savedInstanceState);
        setContentView(R.layout.activity_main);

        LoggerPreferences.init(true, true);

        LoggerPreferences preferences = LoggerPreferences.get(this, "sp_file", Context.MODE_PRIVATE)
                .with(this);

        HashSet<String> set = new HashSet<>();
        set.add("New Value");
        set.add("Oh!");
        set.add("I am in a set");

        preferences.edit()
                .putInt("key_int", 123)
                .putString("key_string", "new value")
                .putBoolean("key_boolean", false)
                .putFloat("key_float", 10.0f)
                .putLong("key_long", 112320L)
                .putStringSet("key_set", set)
                .apply();

        preferences.getString("key_string", null);
        preferences.getInt("key_int", 0);
        preferences.getBoolean("key_boolean", false);
        preferences.getLong("key_long", 1000L);
        preferences.getFloat("key_float", 10f);
        preferences.getStringSet("key_set", null);
        preferences.getAll();
        preferences.registerOnSharedPreferenceChangeListener(null);
        preferences.unregisterOnSharedPreferenceChangeListener(null);
    }
}

Logcat:

D/LoggerPreferences: [Int] MainActivity changed the value of Key[key_int] from [123] to [123].
D/LoggerPreferences: [String] MainActivity changed the value of Key[key_string] from [new value] to [new value].
D/LoggerPreferences: [Boolean] MainActivity changed the value of Key[key_boolean] from [true] to [false].
D/LoggerPreferences: [Float] MainActivity changed the value of Key[key_float] from [1.0] to [10.0].
D/LoggerPreferences: [Long] MainActivity changed the value of Key[key_long] from [10000] to [112320].
D/LoggerPreferences: [Set<String>] MainActivity changed the value of Key[key_set] from [[Test, Testing!]] to [I am in a set,Oh!,New Value].

D/LoggerPreferences: [String] MainActivity is retrieving the value of Key[key_string] which is set to [new value].
D/LoggerPreferences: [Int] MainActivity is retrieving the value of Key[key_int] which is set to [123].
D/LoggerPreferences: [Boolean] MainActivity is retrieving the value of Key[key_boolean] which is set to [false].
D/LoggerPreferences: [Long] MainActivity is retrieving the value of Key[key_long] which is set to [112320].
D/LoggerPreferences: [Float] MainActivity is retrieving the value of Key[key_float] which is set to [10.0].
D/LoggerPreferences: [Set<String>] MainActivity is retrieving the value of Key[key_set] which is set to [I am in a set,Oh!,New Value].
D/LoggerPreferences: MainActivity is retrieving all values.
D/LoggerPreferences: MainActivity has registered a OnSharedPreferenceChangeListener.
D/LoggerPreferences: MainActivity has unregistered a OnSharedPreferenceChangeListener.

Tips

LoggerPreferences uses the same tag when logging: LoggerPreferences. In your logcat search LoggerPreferences to get all the logs.

Never log in production!
