Hi all,

JavocSoft Android Toolbox Library

After some time, I finally decided to publish the last changes to JavocSoft Android Toolbox Library, including porting it to Android Studio that was something time ago asked by some users. I also must AndroidStudio IDEapologize for taking so long, i could not get time between my job and other projects i was making but finally, between gaps in my spare time and also time in my job, because i am using in it, I finally finished the port and added some improvements and changes to this open-source library 🙂

FCMAbout the new version, one of the modules added is the FCM module, Firebase Cloud Messaging for Push Notifications, as a new standard to use instead the old GCM (module that is still in the library, for compatibility backwards). I have made the  FCM module even more easy to integrate than the old GCM. Also Firebase analytics module is ready to use, is quite simple, it is more a tool to save you time when logging events to Firebase console of Firebase Services.

To integrate the library into your Android Studio application project, just add a new repository to your project build.gradle:

allprojects {
    repositories {
    jcenter()
    mavenCentral()
    //JavocSoft Repository
    maven {
            url "https://dl.bintray.com/javocsoft/maven"
        }
    }
}

and in your application build.gradle file:

compile 'es.javocsoft:toolbox:1.2.9'

I hope this new and ported version of JavocSoft Android Toolbox helps you again a bit more now in Android Studio  🙂

Hi,

In this update I added some assistance classes related with inter-application messaging in Android to JavocSoft Android Toolbox.JavocSoft Android Toolbox Library

Sometimes an application needs to accept messages from other applications, in those cases, a Messenger service must be implemented. See Messenger for more information about messaging. So, to make easier having a messenger service in an application, i have added a base MessengerService.java class to the library.

Hi all,

Today a new version of the library JavocSoft Android Toolbox have been released, in this case with a new module that integrates the Google Drive API. This allows to use Android ToolBox - Google DriveGoogle Drive within your applications in a really easy way. I wanted to add this to the library long time ago but until a few weeks i could not start doing it.JavocSoft Android Toolbox Library

To know how to use it and more  goto https://github.com/javocsoft/javocsoft-toolbox/wiki#google-drive.

As a brief, the list of operations that the new module for Google Drive allows are:

  • Create a file (with the posibility of creating it in the secure application folder).
  • Search for files.
  • Get a file given its name or title
  • Get the file contents.
  • Pin a file (this makes Google Drive to store a copy of its metadata locally in the Device).
  • Trash/Un-trash a file.
  • Be notified when a file changes (see TBDrive#addFileChangeListener() and TBChangeListener.java)
  • Subscribe to file changes (notifications are received even if the application is not running. See TBDrive#subscribeToFile() and TBDriveEventService.java).
  • Commit/Discard changes to a file (also be notified when Google Drive servers finish applying changes, see TBDriveEventService.java)
  • Get file contents as an String.
  • Append/Replace text to a file.
  • Get a DriveFile object from an encoded DriveId string.

As always, I hope these addition could be useful for your applications.

Hace tiempo que pusimos en el store una aplicación llamada “AppVigilant” para poder conocer el detalle de un número corto que pudiera aparecernos en la factura o que necesitásemos consultar su información. La aplicación también permitía darse de baja de un servicio de suscripción si se recibía un mensaje de este tipo. Toda la información fiable dado que se consultaba a la CMT junto con otros servicios como Axesor.
