Announcement

Why?

The aim of this project is to provide code that is used in a lot of Android-Apps over and over again this way:

  • reduce code in the apps ( -> more readable )
  • deduplicate code and tests ( -> save space & time )

How?

You can either and use it - or pull the lib via jcenter ( is like mavenCentral, but better ) - this is how you should do it via gradle:

repositories {
    jcenter()
}

dependencies {
    compile 'org.ligi:AXT:0.36'
}

Android now uses jcenter by default, so you might not need the first part.

most helpers are invoked that way

 // context
 EditText editText = getEditText();
 
 // invoke AXT
 AXT.at(editText).changeTextIfNeeded("new text?");

there are also things beside these helpers that can reduce your code - e.g. a SimpleTextWatcher to reduce this common mess:

textView.addTextChangedListener(new TextWatcher() {
    @Override
    public void beforeTextChanged(CharSequence s, int start, int count, int after) {
        // nothing
    }

    @Override
    public void onTextChanged(CharSequence s, int start, int before, int count) {
        // nothing
    }

    @Override
    public void afterTextChanged(Editable s) {
        theRealWork(s);
    }
});

to this:

textView.addTextChangedListener(new SimpleTextWatcher() {
    @Override
    public void afterTextChanged(Editable s) {
        theRealWork(s);
    }
});

Why the Name?

the acronymes comes from Android eXTensions and also leaned torwards dagger and butterknife that aim on reducing code in android apps - AXT is german for AXE - so also a cutting tool.
