Louvre

A small customizable image picker. Useful to handle an gallery image pick action built-in your app.

Sample

*Images from Google Image Search

Get it on Google Play

Installation

Add this in your root build.gradle file (not your app module build.gradle file):

allprojects {
    repositories {
        ...
        maven { url "https://jitpack.io" }
    }
}

Then, add the library in your app module build.gradle

dependencies{
    compile 'com.github.andremion:louvre:[LATEST VERSION]'
}

Usage

Choose one of the Louvre themes to use in GalleryActivity and override it to define your app color palette.

<style name="AppTheme.Louvre.Light.DarkActionBar" parent="Louvre.Theme.Light.DarkActionBar">
    <item name="colorPrimary">@color/colorPrimary</item>
    <item name="colorPrimaryDark">@color/colorPrimaryDark</item>
    <item name="colorAccent">@color/colorAccent</item>
</style>
<style name="AppTheme.Louvre.Dark" parent="Louvre.Theme.Dark">
    <item name="colorPrimary">@color/colorPrimary</item>
    <item name="colorPrimaryDark">@color/colorPrimaryDark</item>
    <item name="colorAccent">@color/colorAccent</item>
</style>
<style name="AppTheme.Louvre.Light" parent="Louvre.Theme.Light">
    <item name="colorPrimary">@color/colorPrimary</item>
    <item name="colorPrimaryDark">@color/colorPrimaryDark</item>
    <item name="colorAccent">@color/colorAccent</item>
</style>

For PreviewActivity you just need to define the accent color.

<style name="AppTheme.Louvre.Preview" parent="Louvre.Theme.Preview">
    <item name="colorAccent">@color/colorAccent</item>
</style>

Declare the Louvre activities in AndroidManifest.xml file using your new app themes.

<activity
    android:name="com.andremion.louvre.home.GalleryActivity"
    android:theme="@style/AppTheme.Louvre.Light.DarkActionBar" />
<activity
    android:name="com.andremion.louvre.preview.PreviewActivity"
    android:theme="@style/AppTheme.Louvre.Preview" />

Add READ_EXTERNAL_STORAGE permission in your AndroidManifest.xml file.

<uses-permission android:name="android.permission.READ_EXTERNAL_STORAGE" />

In your Activity you just need the below lines of code to open the Louvre.

Louvre.init(myActivity)
        .setRequestCode(LOUVRE_REQUEST_CODE)
        .open();

You can also use a Fragment to open the Louvre. In this case, the Fragment will get the onActivityResult callback.

Louvre.init(myFragment)
        .setRequestCode(LOUVRE_REQUEST_CODE)
        .open();

But you can customize the picker:

Setting the max images allowed to pick
louvre.setMaxSelection(10)
Setting the current selected items
List<Uri> selection;
...
louvre.setSelection(selection)
Setting the media type to filter the query with a combination of one of these types: Louvre.IMAGE_TYPE_BMP, Louvre.IMAGE_TYPE_JPEG, Louvre.IMAGE_TYPE_PNG
louvre.setMediaTypeFilter(Louvre.IMAGE_TYPE_JPEG, Louvre.IMAGE_TYPE_PNG)
