RetrofitHelper is an Open Source Android library that used to make HTTP request easily.

Here are some advantages of using RetrofitHelper over other libraries:

  1. Network checking is not required.
  2. No need to handle ProgressDialog while calling an API.
  3. ApiInterface and ApiClinet are not required.
  4. You can handle errors in a single place.
  5. You can optimise your code.
  6. Avoid code redundancy.

For using this networking library, you need to follow the below instructions.

Step 1: Add Dependency in build.gradle

  compile 'com.droidmentor:helper:1.0.1' 

Step 2: Set Base URL and common headers if needed. Base URL field is mandatory.
Step 3: This library checks your internet connection be default so if you want to toast message you can set the error message.

  ApiClient.setNetworkErrorMessage("Network Error");

Step 4: APICall is the class do the magic. You can call the API using the following set of code.

  APICall networkCall;
  networkCall = new APICall(this);

  Map queryParams = new HashMap<>();
  queryParams.put("user[email]", etUserEmail.getText().toString());
  queryParams.put("user[name]", etUserName.getText().toString());


Step 5: APIRequest is the method simplifies your process and act wisely based on your parameters. This method can handle the following arguments.

  • type : type of the request.
  • url : endpoint
  • responseModel : response model class.
  • body : request body.
  • params : URL parameters.
  • from : int value represent the source, because in a single page you can trigger multiple requests.
  • is_PDshow : boolean flag shows the visibility of the ProgressDialog.
  • message : Loader title message.
  • responseListener : It is an interface, it contains the callback methods (onSuccess, onFailure, onNetworkFailure).

In AndroidManifest.xml

Specify all the needed permissions. If you don't, permission requests fail silently. That's an Android thing.
