Android Templates And Utilities is a collection of source codes, utilities, templates and snippets for Android development. It helps to build new apps and shows the best way how to implement certain problems on Android platform.
I write these templates for my personal need. I use it almost every day for developing apps. It is something like cookbook for me. All my apps are based on these templates.
In this repo you can find templates for styling action bar, working with alarm manager, communicating with server API, sending and receiving broadcasts, working with database, creating dialogs, using dual pane layout, fragments, GCM, geolocation, loading and caching images, working with intents, map, navigation drawer, showing notifications, preferences, running service, setting SSL connection, working with view pager, webview and much more. All templates were tested and should be compatible with Android 4+.
Android Templates And Utilities are organized into 3 groups:
Base - basic skelet of the Android project
Res - resource code including xml files, images
Src - source code including classes, resources
How to use these templates? Just copy the template into your project, rename package "com.example" to your own package name, rename classes' or resource's names if you want and customize the code to your needs. Some templates have /src/fragment/ExampleFragment.java class which demonstrates how to use the template in a Fragment.
Example of creating a basic app skelet with 1 Activity and 1 Fragment via Android Studio:
Create a new Android project with package name "com.example"
Copy & paste Base
Copy & paste Res-Placeholder
Copy & paste Res-Strings
Copy & paste Res-Theme
Copy & paste Src-Activity
Copy & paste Src-Application-Class
Copy & paste Src-Config
Copy & paste Src-Fragment
Copy & paste Src-Logcat
Copy & paste Src-NetworkUtility
Open ExampleActivity.java and comment out onCreateOptionsMenu(...) and onOptionsItemSelected(...) methods
Build the project and voilà, we have a basic skeleton for our future app
