Including in your project

Maven Central

Gradle

Add below codes to your root build.gradle file (not your module build.gradle file).

allprojects {
    repositories {
        mavenCentral()
    }
}

And add a dependency code to your module's build.gradle file.

dependencies {
    implementation "io.github.joelromanpr:loki:1.0.0"
}

Usage

LoKi

Here is a basic example of implementing a LoKi workflow. Any activity that you wish to protect with a passcode must inherit a LokiActivity

class MainActivity : LokiActivity() {}

To prompt the user to setup their passcode for the first time call the launch function within PasscodeSetupActivity

PasscodeSetupActivity.launch([email protected])

It is common to show the "enable passcode" state with a view such as a Switch from your app Settings screen. Here is one way to approach it:

class MainActivity : LokiActivity() {
    override fun onCreate(savedInstanceState: Bundle?) {
        findViewById<SwitchCompat>(R.id.enable_pin).apply {
            this.isChecked = Loki.isEnabled([email protected])
            this.setOnCheckedChangeListener { _, isChecked ->
                when (isChecked) {
                    true -> PasscodeSetupActivity.launch([email protected])
                    else -> Loki.disable([email protected])
                }
            }
        }
    }
}

Loki Customization

You can customize certain aspects of LoKi by calling overwriteConfig on the Loki singleton object. You want to most likely do this from your Application class since it serves as the first entrypoint to it.

class DemoApp : Application() {
    override fun onCreate() {
        super.onCreate()
        Loki.overwriteConfig(
            LokiConfig(
                appName = "LoKi Demo",
                maxAttempts = 1,
                passcodePinActiveCircleColor = android.R.color.holo_blue_dark
            )
        )
    }
}

Internals

  • Loki will place your app in a "disable" state if the user fails the passcode unlock workflow. Currently users must wait 1 minute before trying again
  • LoKi's PasscodeManager is in charge of encoding (using a salt) the user's passcode
  • Behavior might change on newer versions. Make sure to reference docs.

Additional 🎈

LoKi is a fast-track way of adding a passcode lock to your applications, you can also use it in production apps, however it was designed for quick experimentation and allow teams to satisfy a passcode lock need as quick as possible. Feel free to contribute and submit ideas on how it can be improved!
