Charles

Build Status Download

Charles is a local file selector for Android. You can

  • Use it in Activity or Fragment
  • Select multi-media file including images, videos, audio and documents
  • Apply different themes, including two built-in themes and custom themes
  • Restrict different screen orientations
  • Find more by yourself

| Charles Style | Charles Dark Style | Empty View | | :-------------: | :-------------: | :-------------: | | Charles Style | Empty View | Charles Empty Layout |

Download

  • Add the JitPack repository to your build file:
allprojects {
    repositories {
        jcenter()
    }
}
  • Add the dependency:
dependencies {
    implementation 'io.github.tonnyl:charles:x.y.z'
}

ProGuard

If you use Glide as your image engine, add rules as Glide's README says. And add extra rule:

-dontwarn com.squareup.picasso.**

If you use Picasso as your image engine, add rules as Picasso's README says. And add extra rule:

-dontwarn com.bumptech.glide.**

Attention: The above progurad rules are correct.

Usage

Permission

The library requires two permissions:

  • android.permission.READ_EXTERNAL_STORAGE
  • android.permission.WRITE_EXTERNAL_STORAGE

So if you are targeting Android 6.0+, you need to handle runtime permission request before next step.

Simple Usage Snippet

Start

CharlesActivity
from current
Activity
or
Fragment
:
Charles.from([email protected])
        .choose()
        .maxSelectable(9)
        .progressRate(true)
        .theme(R.style.Charles)
        .imageEngine(GlideEngine())
        .restrictOrientation(ActivityInfo.SCREEN_ORIENTATION_UNSPECIFIED)
        .forResult(REQUEST_CODE_CHOOSE)

Themes

There are two built-in themes you can use to start

CharlesActivity
:
  • R.style.Charles
    (light mode)
  • R.style.CharlesDark
    (dark mode)

And Also you can define your own theme as you wish.

Receive Result

In

onActivityResult()
callback of the starting
Activity
or
Fragment
:
override fun onActivityResult(requestCode: Int, resultCode: Int, data: Intent?) {
    super.onActivityResult(requestCode, resultCode, data)
    if (requestCode == REQUEST_CODE_CHOOSE && resultCode == Activity.RESULT_OK) {
        val uris = Charles.obtainResult(data)
        val paths = Charles.obtainPathResult(data)

    Log.d("charles", "uris: $uris")
    Log.d("charles", "paths: $paths")
}

}
