VeinView

Custom WebView with build in CSS and JS injection capabilities

With VeinView you can easily inject CSS and JavaScript code into your WebView contents, and the enhance the user experience based on your individual needs.

You could apply a dark mode CSS and make Google look like this:

Installation

implementation 'com.izikode.izilib:veinview:0.2'

Usage

Use VeinView just like you would use a vanilla WebView.

<android.support.constraint.ConstraintLayout 
    xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android"
    android:layout_width="match_parent"
    android:layout_height="match_parent">

    <com.izikode.izilib.veinview.VeinView
        android:id="@+id/veinview"
        android:layout_width="match_parent"
        android:layout_height="match_parent" />

</android.support.constraint.ConstraintLayout>

Do any setup that you would normally do to your WebViews and before loading the contents, provide VeinView with a new Client; be careful to use a VeinViewClient and not a WebViewClient.

veinView.setVeinViewClient(object: VeinViewClient() {
    override fun onReadyToInject(injector: VeinViewInjector, page: String) {

        injector.injectCSS(R.raw.dark_google_style)

    }
})
  • Use the defaultClient DSL for an even simpler initialization.
veinView.setVeinViewClient(defaultClient { injector, page ->
    injector.injectCSS(R.raw.dark_google_style)
})

Use the provided VeinViewInjector to update the contents to your needs. You can inject a raw resource or plain String objects containing your CSS or JavaScript code. In the above screenshot, the following CSS style is used:

body {
    color: white;
    background-color: black;
}

For a full example, see the sample app.
