Locationmanager

Locationmanager is a small wrapper for Location Tracker.

Installation

  • Add jitpackto your repositories in Project build.gradle :
allprojects {
    repositories {
        ...
        maven { url "https://jitpack.io" }
    }
    ...
}
  • Add dependency :
implementation 'com.github.grumpyshoe:android-module-locationmanager:1.1.0'

Usage

  • Get instance of LocationManager:
val locationManager : LocationManager = LocationManagerImpl()

In order to locate your device, the library will request the permissions android.permission.ACCESS_FINE_LOCATION and android.permission.ACCESS_COARSE_LOCATION. To handle to permission request result correctly delegate the response of onRequestPermissionsResult in your activity to the library like this:

override fun onRequestPermissionsResult(requestCode: Int, permissions: Array<out String>, grantResults: IntArray) {
    locationManager.onRequestPermissionsResult(requestCode, permissions, grantResults)
            ?: super.onRequestPermissionsResult(requestCode, permissions, grantResults)

}

Get last known Location

Try to get last known connection with getLastKnownPosition.

locationManager.getLastKnownPosition(
        activity = this,
        onLastLocationFound = { location ->
            // handle location data
        },
        onNoLocationFound = {
            // handle no location data
        })

Track location

If you want continuous information about device movement start the location tracking.

Start location tracking

To start location tracking call startLocationTracker.

locationManager.startLocationTracker(
        activity = this ,
        onLocationChange = { location ->
            // handle location data
        },
        config = LocationTrackerConfig())

Stop location tracking

To stop location tracking call stopLocationTracker. This should be done at LifeCycleEvent onDestroy at least to avoid any error during off screen information.

locationManager.stopLocationTracker()
