From AndroidManifest.xml to Java classes

With the navigation groundwork laid in previous weeks I could add another extension relatively easily. AndroidManifest.xml can refer to various classes in your projects: activities, services, providers and so on. For a while this was ignored by NBAndroid navigation support that helped you to get from Java to resource files or move between resources. Starting with the plugin version 1.154 you can use hyperlinking in AndroidManifest.xml editor on these android:name values. Summary of these enhancements will be built in our Wiki page.

As it is usual recently: it took me hours to implement this and it will increase your productivity and thus it is locked and enabled for those who posses valid subscription key.

Better Wiki

Take a look at our new Wiki. This is another step in my effort to get rid of old kenai.com legacy. We're going to use custom wiki and project downloads server together with simple bug tracker at BitBucket (this can be replaced if it is not flexible enough).

Back to GUI preview

There are few changes in layout preview functionality:
  • Configuration derived from a folder name of displayed layout is now taken into account. It means res/layout-land/main.xml will be rendered automatically in landscape mode.
  • Various bugfixes.
  • Preview is available as part of NBAndroid Extensions only. It means you will need valid subscription.
The last step is not an easy decision and I hope it will help to create sustainable model to support this project.
