What Is Android Library?
An Android library is structurally the same as an Android app module. It can include everything needed to build an app, including source code, resource files, and an Android manifest. However, instead of compiling into an APK that runs on a device, an Android library compiles into an Android Archive (AAR) file that you can use as a dependency for an Android app module.
Why And When To Use?
How To Create?
Step 1 : Creating module.
:- Either to create a new library module in your project.
:- Or converting an existing app module to Library module.
:- Or import the library module to your project.
Step 2: Setup dependency & configuration
:- In your settings.gradle file add
settings.gradle file add
include ‘:app’, ‘:my-library-module’
Where “app” is application module, and “my-library-module” is library module.
:- Open the app module’s build.gradle file and add a new line to the dependencies block as shown in the following
:- Click Sync Project with Gradle Files.
Now Any code and resources in the Android library (my-library-module) are accessible to your app module (app), and the library AAR file is bundled into your APK at build time.
As you develop your library modules and dependent apps, be aware of the following behaviors and limitations.
Once you have added references to library modules to your Android app module, you can set their relative priority. At build time, the libraries are merged with the app one at a time, starting from the lowest priority to the highest.
You must also add the following line inside the android block of your library’s build.gradle file to expose your library’s non-release configurations to projects that use it:
Note, however, that setting publishNonDefault can increase build times.
