Fllow me at github

DroidPlugin is a new Plugin Framework developed and maintained by Andy Zhang( Fllow me at github ). It enables the host app run any third-party apk without installation, modification and repackage, which benefit a lot for collaborative development on Android.


Problems to be solved:

  1. Unable to send

Notification

with custom Resources,eg:

a. Notification with custom RemoteLayout, which means

Notification

's

contentView

tickerView

bigContentView

and

headsUpContentView

must be null.

b. Notification with icon customized by R.drawable.XXX. The framework will transform it to Bitmap instead.

  1. Unable to define specified

Intent Filter

for the plugged app's

Service

Activity

BroadcastReceiver

and

ContentProvider

. So the plugged app is invisible for the outside system and app. 3.

Lack of

Hook

to the

Native

layer, thus apk (e.g. a majority of game apps) with

native

code cannot be loaded as plugin.

Features:

  1. Compatible to Android 2.3 and later versions
  2. Given its .apk file, the plugged app could be run either independently or as plugin of the host, NO source code needed.
  3. Unnecessary to register the plugged app's
    Service
    Activity
    BroadcastReceiver
    ContentProvider
    in the host.
  4. The plugged app are recognized as Installed by the host and other plugged apps
  5. Very low level of code invasion, in deed just one line code to integrate DroidPlugin into the host app.
  6. Complete code level separation between host and plugged apps, only system level message passing method provide by Android allowed.
  7. All system API supported
  8. Resources management are also completely separated between host and plugged apps.
  9. Process management for plugged apps, idle processed of the plugged app will be timely recycled to guarantee minimum memory usage.
  10. Static broadcast of plugged app will be treated as dynamic, thus the static broadcasting will never be trigger if the plugged app are not activated.

Usage:

Integrate with the host apps

It is very simple integrate Droid Plugin to your proejct:

  1. Import Droid Plugin project to your project as a lib.

Include following attributes in host's

AndroidManifest.xml

<application android:name="com.morgoo.droidplugin.PluginApplication" android:label="@string/app_name" android:icon="@drawable/ic_launcher">
</application>
  1. Or, if you use customized

Application

,add following code in the methods

onCreate

and

attachBaseContext

:

@Override public void onCreate() { super.onCreate(); PluginHelper.getInstance().applicationOnCreate(getBaseContext()); //must be after super.onCreate() } @Override protected void attachBaseContext(Context base) { PluginHelper.getInstance().applicationAttachBaseContext(base); super.attachBaseContext(base); }
  1. Modify the

authorityName

value in

Libraries\DroidPlugin\build.gradle

(suggested use your package name)

Install、Uninstall or Upgrade the plugged app:

Install/Upgrade, use this method:

int PluginManager.getInstance().installPackage(String filepath, int flags);

For installation,

filepath

set to path of the .apk file, and

flags

set to 0.

For upgrade,

filepath

set to path of the .apk file, and

flags

set to

PackageManagerCompat.INSTALL\_REPLACE\_EXISTING

. 2.

Uninstall, use this method:

int PluginManager.getInstance().deletePackage(String packageName,int flags);
packageName
