Android @Properties

This lib provides a simple way to read a <file>.properties from assets folder.

You just have to extends from AssetsProperties and use @Property annotation to invoke the automatic property mapping.

Installation

It's very simple with gradle ;)

Add mavenCentral as repository source:

repositories {
  mavenCentral()
}

And finnaly add this line inside dependencies { } section:

implementation 'com.github.fernandodev.androidproperties:androidproperties:+'

The + symbol indicates to gradle to get the latest version.

  • See the sample if there are any doubts.

Using

Super simple usage ;)

Android Properties can parse String,int,float,double and boolean values from file .properties.

Create a class that represents your file properties and extend from AssetsProperties class.

Example:

assets/config.properties

int_value=23
flag=true
tax=2.3f

Config.java

public class Config extends AssetsProperties {

  @Property("int_value") int intValue;
  @Property boolean flag;
  @Property float tax;

  public Config(Context context) { super(context); }
}

You must use @Property annotation to map field as property field from file. Pass the name of property if it's different from the field name in class.

Tips

Read another file properties

The default file for properties is called config.properties but if you need to read another file properties, just pass the name of file in the constructor:

super(context, "another_properties_file");

Map property name

The @Property annotation uses the name of field as name of property field in file. So if the field name is diferent of the name in file, just pass the name of property by @Property("property_name").

Useful public methods

If you do not want to use @Property annotation or need only a reader property class you can use some public methods from AssetsProperties:

public int getInt(String key, int defaultValue);

public float getFloat(String key, float defaultValue);

public double getDouble(String key, double defaultValue);

public boolean getBoolean(String key, boolean defaultValue);

public String getString(String key, String defaultValue);

If the AssetsProperties can't read the key then the defaultValue will be returned.

Testing

There are a simple test for the rating dialog. If you want to contribute check the tests too.

$ git clone git@github.com:fernandodev/android-properties.git
$ cd android-properties
$ ./gradlew connectedAndroidTest --daemon

You must open an emulator before.
