A library which fetches the contacts from mobile and allows to search over it.

To use this library:

  1. git clone https://github.com/amit-upadhyay-IT/contacts-search-android.git

  2. Change the first line of app level build.gradle file to: apply plugin: 'com.android.library'

  3. Sync the project

  4. Now you can use the Pre-defined classes for your purpose. EG: ContactsRecyclerAdapter, SearchActivity, etc;

  5. To request permissions you can use this code:

     public static final int MY_PERMISSIONS_REQUEST_READ_CONTACTS = 1;
     public void onRequestPermissionsResult(int requestCode,
                                            String permissions[], int[] grantResults) {
         switch (requestCode) {
                 // If request is cancelled, the result arrays are empty.
                 if (grantResults.length > 0
                         && grantResults[0] == PackageManager.PERMISSION_GRANTED) {
                     // permission was granted, yay! Do the
                     // contacts-related task you need to do.
                 } else {
                     // permission denied, boo! Disable the
                     // functionality that depends on this permission or ask for permission again.
                             new String[]{Manifest.permission.READ_CONTACTS},
             // other 'case' lines to check for other
             // permissions this app might request

        if (ContextCompat.checkSelfPermission(MainActivity.this,
            != PackageManager.PERMISSION_GRANTED) {
                new String[]{Manifest.permission.READ_CONTACTS},
