Description

This library project provides a convenient way for Android developers to see the contents of their Realm database files on the device.

It's a fork of dmytrodanylyk/realm-browser which was originally created by Danylyk Dmytro but sadly discontinued.

Integration codecov

Releases: Build Status - Develop branch (Snapshots): Build Status

The project is available via JitPack.io.

  1. Add the JitPack repository to your build file

    allprojects {
           repositories {
           ...
           maven { url "https://jitpack.io" }
           }
       }
    }
    
  2. Add the dependency

    dependencies {
       debugCompile 'com.github.jonasrottmann.realm-browser:realm-browser:0.0.14'
       testCompile 'com.github.jonasrottmann.realm-browser:realm-browser-no-op:0.0.14'
       releaseCompile 'com.github.jonasrottmann.realm-browser:realm-browser-no-op:0.0.14'
    }
    

    The no-op version of Realm Browser has empty functions which do nothing. It is not necessary to include this, but you may if you do not want to access Realm Browser in release mode. If you want to use a build of the newest development use compile "com.github.jonasrottmann.realm-browser:realm-browser:develop-SNAPSHOT" instead.

  3. Exclude support libraries (maybe optional): Realm Browser depends on Android support libraries, so you might want to exclude them from your project if they conflict with the ones you include:

    depedencies {
       debugCompile ('com.github.jonasrottmann.realm-browser:realm-browser:0.0.14') {
           exclude group: 'com.android.support';
       }
    }
    
  4. Add ProGuard rules (optional): Use these if you enable minification for debug builds or want to use Realm Browser in release builds.

    # Realm Browser
    -keep class de.jonasrottmann.realmbrowser.* { *; }
    -keep class android.support.v7.widget.SearchView { *; }
    -keep class android.support.v7.view.** { *; }
    

Usage

If you want to see all your database files:

RealmBrowser.startRealmFilesActivity(context);

If you want to see all the tables in a database call:

RealmBrowser.startRealmModelsActivity(context, realmConfiguration);

To display a notification from which the Realm Browser can be started:

RealmBrowser.showRealmFilesNotification(context);
RealmBrowser.showRealmModelsNotification(context, realmConfiguration);

There are also App Shortcuts available for devices running Android 7.1 or newer:

RealmBrowser.addFilesShortcut(context);
RealmBrowser.addModelsShortcut(context, realmConfiguration)
