Storage Chooser

GitHub issues demo javadoc

A pretty and simple directory chooser and file picker library for 4.4+ devices. This library was created to be included in OpenGApps App. There are too many storage chooser out there but this one is too materially :stuck_out_tongue: . Easy to implement and does not take a lot of your valueable time in setting-up all the other necessary things that every developer seeks, like

  • saving path to sharedPreference
  • event when path is selected and act upon that path
  • and much more.

There are also some really nice features that I thought would come in handy:

  • You show a quick overview of the storages present and their memory available before choosing so that users know which storage to choose.
  • you can choose between sheet and sleek layouts.
  • Inline create folder view (not another dialog to handle)
  • Full localization. I mean literally every strings can be localized to your desired language.
  • Memory thresholding - a restriction or a toast that it shows when user’s memory is less than your defined memory for operations.
  • and more will be added soon.

Preview

SC Features

Installation

Add this to your root build.gradle file under repositories:

allprojects {
	repositories {
		maven { url "https://jitpack.io" }
	}
}

Add this to your app level build.gradle as dependency:

com.github.codekidX:storage-chooser:1.0.31

Notes

Before you implement this library here are some notes that you can follow to avoid errors.

Confirm:

  • You have asked for Runtime Permission from the user in the past to avoid read errors.
  • Permissions with “READ_EXTERNAL_STORAGE” and “WRITE_EXTERNAL_STORAGE” is enough for this library to work.
  • This library follows same color scheme as that of the parent app to maintain the aesthetic of the parent app. See the color scheme section below

Implementation

Simple Type

  • Let’s you toggle between inernal/external root directory.
// ~

// Initialize Builder
StorageChooser chooser = new StorageChooser.Builder()
.withActivity(MainActivity.this)
.withFragmentManager(getSupportFragmentManager())
.withMemoryBar(true) 
.build();

// Show dialog whenever you want by
chooser.show();

// get path that the user has chosen
chooser.setOnSelectListener(new StorageChooser.OnSelectListener() {
    @Override
    public void onSelect(String path) {
        Log.e("SELECTED_PATH", path);
    }
});

OUTPUT: /storage/emulated/0

Pre-defined Type

  • Let’s you append a specific path to the root of internal or external directory.
// --- ADD --
.withPredefinedPath(STATIC_PATH)

OUTPUT: /storage/emulated/0/Downloads/CodekidLabs

Custom Type

  • Let’s your user choose custom directory/file.

Directory Chooser

// --- ADD ---
.allowCustomPath(true)
.setType(StorageChooser.DIRECTORY_CHOOSER)

File Picker

NOTE: File Picker is still –> WIP

// --- ADD ---
.allowCustomPath(true)
.setType(StorageChooser.FILE_PICKER)

Save directly to preference

// --- ADD ---
.actionSave(true)
.withPreference(sharedPreferences)

Get path from preference

String path = sharedPreferences.getString(DiskUtil.SC_PREFERENCE_KEY,"");

Localization

A seperate localization wiki is posted here
