license Release Version PRs Welcome

VirtualAPK is a powerful yet lightweight plugin framework for Android. It can dynamically load and run an APK file (we call it

LoadedPlugin
) seamlessly as an installed application. Developers can use any Class, Resources, Activity, Service, Receiver and Provider in
LoadedPlugin
as if they are registered in app's manifest file.

Getting started

Host Project

Add a dependency in

build.gradle
in root of host project as following.
dependencies {
    classpath 'com.didi.virtualapk:gradle:0.9.8.6'
}

Apply plugin in application module of

build.gradle
.
apply plugin: 'com.didi.virtualapk.host'

Compile VirtualAPK in application module of

build.gradle
.
compile 'com.didi.virtualapk:core:0.9.8'

Initialize

PluginManager
in
YourApplication::attachBaseContext()
.
@Override
protected void attachBaseContext(Context base) {
    super.attachBaseContext(base);
    PluginManager.getInstance(base).init();
}

Modify proguard rules to keep VirtualAPK related files.

-keep class com.didi.virtualapk.internal.VAInstrumentation { *; }
-keep class com.didi.virtualapk.internal.PluginContentResolver { *; }

-dontwarn com.didi.virtualapk.** -dontwarn android.** -keep class android.** { *; }

Finally, load an APK and have fun!

String pluginPath = Environment.getExternalStorageDirectory().getAbsolutePath().concat("/Test.apk");
File plugin = new File(pluginPath);
PluginManager.getInstance(base).loadPlugin(plugin);

// Given "com.didi.virtualapk.demo" is the package name of plugin APK, // and there is an activity called MainActivity. Intent intent = new Intent(); intent.setClassName("com.didi.virtualapk.demo", "com.didi.virtualapk.demo.MainActivity"); startActivity(intent);

Plugin Project

Add a dependency in

build.gradle
in root of plugin project as following.
dependencies {
    classpath 'com.didi.virtualapk:gradle:0.9.8.6'
}
