A Don't Kill My App Library

The aim of dontkillmyapp.com is to create a collection of guides and information to help users and developers troubleshoot issues on their devices related to background tasks being killed unnecessarily by the Android system. This library displays relevant information from this site to the user of an affected application, and attempts to walk users through the process of solving the problem themselves, hopefully reducing the amount of time that developers have to spend providing support as a result of these issues.

Previews

Default Activity Activity w Custom Theme Dialog Customized Doki View
The default doki activity. Doki in a custom-themed activity. Doki inside of a dialog. Doki with nice, fun, shiny colours.

For testing and experimentation purposes, a sample apk can be downloaded here.

How to use it

Doki is available via JitPack, so getting it as simple as adding it as a dependency, like this:

  1. Add JitPack repository to your root build.gradle file
allprojects {
    repositories {
        maven { url 'https://jitpack.io' }
    }
}
  1. Add the dependency in your project build.gradle file
dependencies {
    implementation('dev.doubledot.doki:library:0.0.1@aar') {
        transitive = true
    }
}

DokiActivity

The DokiActivity provides you with a default uncustomized implementation of the Doki API that is quick and easy to set up and use. Simply call DokiActivity.start(...) to open it.

Kotlin

DokiActivity.start(context = ...)

Java

DokiActivity.start(context);

Alternatively, you can use DokiActivity.newIntent(...) to create an Intent to open it.

DokiContentView

DokiContentView is the custom view that DokiActivity is based on. Implementing it allows for greater customization and use in more complex scenarios.

In the layout you want to include our custom view, just add it like this:

<dev.doubledot.doki.views.DokiContentView
        xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android"
        android:id="@+id/doki_content"
        android:layout_width="match_parent"
        android:layout_height="match_parent"/>

In order to fetch content from the Don't Kill My App website, you must call loadContent() on the view.

Kotlin

val doki : DokiContentView? = findViewById(R.id.doki_content)
doki?.loadContent()

Java

DokiContentView doki = findViewById(R.id.doki_content);
if (doki != null) doki.loadContent();

Customization

If you are using the DokiContentView, you can customize it by setting custom attributes. Please check this file which implements every option available.

For custom fonts and text styles, you can override the following styles:

<style name="Doki.Custom.Headline" parent="Doki.Headline"/>
<style name="Doki.Custom.Overline" parent="Doki.Overline"/>
<style name="Doki.Custom.Button" parent="Doki.Button"/>

And add the following attributes as you wish and with the values you want:

<item name="fontFamily">sans-serif</item>
<item name="android:fontFamily">sans-serif</item>
<item name="android:textStyle">bold</item>
<item name="android:textAllCaps">false</item>
<item name="android:textSize">16sp</item>
<item name="android:letterSpacing">0.1</item>

Note: don't change the parent styles, just add the attributes you want to modify
