Android Geocities Theme

Bringing the best of the web to native!

Features

  • 🚧 Cool "under construction" views
  • πŸ‘ ImageViews have their images replaced with GIFs that are better than whatever was there before
  • ❌ Replaces some images with "broken image" images
  • 😎 Marquee and blink text
  • πŸ”₯ An awesome hit/visitor counter for your app
  • πŸ™ Uses Comic Sans as the Gods intended
  • πŸ”Š Plays awesome audio midi files

Sample video (contains audio):

In the video we launch BaseDemoActivity which unfortunately is not Geocitified, however we fix that by next launching GeocitiesDemoActivity, which is a sub-class of the same activity that only adds in Geocities.wrap(newBase) to attachBaseContext (see instructions below).

And just like that the activity becomes 100x better than it was before πŸ‘

Sample Video

Usage

In your application class:

override fun onCreate() {
  super.onCreate()
  Geocities.init(this)
}

Add this to your activity:

override fun attachBaseContext(newBase: Context) {
  super.attachBaseContext(Geocities.wrap(newBase))
}

Add the dependency in your app build.gradle:

compile 'com.github.dvoiss:android-geocities-theme:1.0.2'

Add the jitpack repo to your root build.gradle:

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

FAQ

How does it work?

The ViewPump library is used to intercept a few UI components that are then modified to be "Geocitified".

  • ImageViews have their images replaced with GIFs or "broken image" images.
  • Toolbars are modified to have the GIF back button seen in the video above as well as a hit counter, rainbow colored title text, and an "under construction" GIF.
  • TextViews blink and scroll (marquee effect) and use comic sans.
  • The root layout (ContentFrameLayout) has a background set with one of the supplied backgrounds.

Can I use this in a real app?

That's probably ill advised. This library was not meant for serious consumption (surprised?) and as such some of the resources below are pulled from public sources. If you really want to use this you may need to check the usage/licenses for them or replace them.

There's a lot of GIFs will it crash my app? Is this library stable?
