New Manifest Explorer plugin
It’s Christmas but we’re still working! So what can the Manifest Explorer do for you? Well, as its name implies, you will be able to see exactly what’s in your manifest and your application’s package.
Basically, it takes (almost) all the information from the android.content.pm.PackageInfo class, as well as the various “Info” classes from the same package (like ApplicationInfo, ActivityInfo, etc…).
Here’s what the Manifest Explorer covers in this version:
- Application info
- Package info
- Activities info
- Configurations info
- Features info
- Permissions info
- Providers info
- Receivers info
- Requested Permissions info
- Services info
Discover providers, services and broadcast receivers from third-party libraries
Sometimes you don’t know what comes with a third-party library. On our little demo project, we can see that we have a provider from the androidx-lifecycle library, as well as a service from Merlin.
Start your activities and services
Sometimes you just want to start an activity or a service for testing purposes. Or because you haven’t implemented the code to launch either of them yet.
Whatever the case, you can simply start an activity or a service by clicking the “play” icon on each item (see animation below).
