Krate

Krate is a persistence layer that offer CRUD operations for a key-value store and result is delivered through a RxObservable. Additionally you can sync your offline data with a server through Krate's fetch functions.

class User(val name: String = "Danny", val age: Int = 27)

const val key = "userId"

fun crud(krate: Krate) {
    krate.get<User>(key).subscribe { user -> /* ... */ }
    
    krate.put(key, User()).subscribe { /* ... */ }
    
    krate.remove(key).subscribe { /* ... */ }
}

Apps often rely on a webservice to provide objects. Krate is great for this data centric approach, since it persists the result of a network call before passing it through.

// first gets it from persistence
// next it does the network call and persist the result
// emits 0, 1 or 2 results.

fun network(krate: Krate, getUserFromApi: () -> Single<User>): Flowable<User> = 
        krate.getAndFetch(key, getUserFromApi)

Based on your needs you can decide you persistence location. Images are often not welcome in a database, so Krate can manage a directory for you:

fun krates(context: Context, picture: ByteArray) {
    val dirKrate = DirectoryKrate(context.cacheDir)
    val sqlKrate = DatabaseKrate(context.openOrCreateDatabase("test", Context.MODE_PRIVATE, null))
    
    dirKrate.put("giantPicture", picture).subscribe()
    sqlKrate.put("smallObject", Any()).subscribe()
}

You may have the need of encryption or you want to use an alternative serializer. Krate's implementations provide easy access for this use cases:

fun customKrate(context: Context) =
        DirectoryKrate(
                directory = context.cacheDir,
                serializer = CustomSerializer(), // swap the default Java serialization
                interceptor = CustomInterceptor() // manipulate the bytes
        )

Krate offers control over the threads you want to apply your operations on. Just wrap the your Krate in a SchedulerKrate.

fun schedulerKrate(krate: Krate): Krate =
        SchedulerKrate(
                krate,
                Schedulers.io(), // io and network operations
                AndroidSchedulers.mainThread() // result is dispatched to the UI thread
        )
