Over the past month or so, I have started developing an Android application for a client. Perhaps one of the most interesting aspects of developing this application is that it is being created in Scala and C++. In addition to being a great opportunity to do some larger-scale development for Android and with Scala, it has given me the opportunity to start developing a toolkit for Scala and Android developers.
Baitha is hosted on GitHub and is licensed using the Apache Software License 2.0. I hope it may be useful to other Scala/Android developers, and I would love feedback from developers in terms of comments, patches, etc. The library is currently designed to be used an Android library project and can easily be integrated using a snapshot version of the SBT Android plugin. For more information, please consult the readme.
Right now, the library supports the following features:
AlertDialogBuilder: A wrapper around Android’s AlertDialog.Builder class that provides some implicit conversions and a mini-DSL.
BuildMode: A trait that makes converting between debug/production code easier.
EnhancedViews: Provides some implicit conversions to make adding listeners as functions.
Logger: A replacement logging interface inspired by RoboGuice.
SdkVersions: Offers conditional execution depending on the runtime version of the Android platform.
Please check it out, use it, and help improve it.
