LocalDraftUploadStarter: Upload local draft pages #9902

merged 11 commits into from May 24, 2019


Copy link

commented May 21, 2019

The first part of #9851 and has a corresponding FluxC PR at wordpress-mobile/WordPress-FluxC-Android#1271.

This adds automatically uploading local draft pages in LocalDraftUploadStarter. The same event triggers are used.

Outstanding Issues

There is an issue with Pages not automatically updating the list if an upload happens in the background. I'm currently working on fixing this as part of #9851. But I believe it's okay to get this PR merged before that is fixed.

The issue can be reproduced by these steps:

  1. Use this PR's branch
  2. Go offline
  3. Open Pages
  4. Create a draft
  5. Go online
  6. Wait a few seconds until you believe the upload should be finished. Notice the draft is still marked as Local Draft.
  7. Close Pages
  8. Go offline
  9. Reopen Pages. You should see that the draft is now shown as uploaded.

Also, snackbars do not seem to be shown when uploads finish. I'll create a separate issue for that.


  1. Go offline
  2. Create a local draft
  3. Trigger one of the events above. Validate that the local drafts were uploaded.

LocalDraftUploadStarter: Fix ambiguous context
The IDE was complaining about an ambiguous coroutineContext on the `async` calls. It’s most probably because in `upload`, you can’t tell which context is being used, the `LocalDraftUploadStarter` or something else that’s calling `upload`.
