Boot Laces

A kotlin work manager library for Android that includes notifications and Hilt support.

User Instructions

  1. Add the JitPack repository to your project's build.gradle
allprojects {
 repositories {
  ...
  maven { url 'https://jitpack.io' }
 }
}
  1. Add the kapt and hilt plugins to the top of your app's build.gradle file
apply plugin: 'kotlin-kapt'
apply plugin: 'dagger.hilt.android.plugin'
  1. Add the dependencies for boot laces & hilt to your app's build.gradle
dependencies {
        implementation 'com.github.evilthreads669966:bootlaces:10.0'
        implementation "com.google.dagger:hilt-android:2.29.1-alpha"
        kapt "com.google.dagger:hilt-android-compiler:2.29.1-alpha"
}
  1. Add the Hilt plugin to your project's build.gradle dependencies
dependencies {
    ...
    classpath "com.google.dagger:hilt-android-gradle-plugin:$hilt_version"
}
  1. Annotate your subclass of Application class
@HiltAndroidApp
class App: Application()
  1. Add name of your Application subclass to manifest
<application
    android:name=".App"
    ...
>
  1. Create your worker(s).
  • you can opt-in for having a progress notification that displays while Worker.doWork is active
    • the description for your worker is good practice and will be used for things like notifications if you choose to use them
  • you perform your work inside of doWork and Boot Laces will keep it running in the background until it has completed and reschedule as necessary
  • WorkerNine below demonstrates how to create a WorkReceiver
    • a WorkReceiver is created by passing in an action for it to subscribe to.
    • you can broadcast to this BroadcastReceiver from within your doWork function or anywhere else in your app
    • for now the WorkReceiver is only registered and subscribing to broadcast while you are performing work. Everytime doWork executes it registers the receiver & unregisters it after doWork completes
  • If you do not need a worker and just a BroadcastReceiver then you can use PersistentReceiver
    • PersistentReceivers only have a WorkReceiver and you don't need to override doWork function
class WorkerEight: Worker(8, "working for 2 hours", true){

  1. Inject your WorkScheduler inside of an Android context
@Inject lateinit var scheduler: WorkScheduler
  1. Your WorkScheduler instance provides you with a scoping function called WorkScheduler.use
  • it accepts a trailing lambda
  • within WorkScheduler.use scope you have access to scheduling functions that have a receiver type of Worker
    • This allows you to use your worker(s) instance(s) to call schedule on your worker
  1. Schedule your worker inside of WorkScheduler.use scope
  • you can pass four arguments to your worker's many available KTX schedule functions
    • surviveReboot
      • allows the worker to survive the phone rebooting
    • precision
      • ensures the worker executes at the exact time scheduled.
        • not using precision allows for the operating system to only execute the worker when there are not too many workers in the background.
    • repeating
      • sets whether the worker should be scheduled to repeat everytime the specified time passes
    • it's default value is false so you don't have to opt out of repeating
      • wakeUpIfIdle
    • sets whether you worker should wake up the device to perform work rather than wait for it stop sleeping
      • the default value for this is false
