pubxml

npm Build Status

Generates public.xml for Android libraries, which allows resources to be hidden from clients. More info

Usage

Install with npm install -g pubxml

For now, this assumes that public and private resources are in separate directories, such as res and res-public.

To add res-public, make a folder with that name in the same directory as res, probably [library-module]/src/main. Add the following to the module's build.gradle:

android {
    ...
    sourceSets {
        main.res.srcDirs += 'src/main/res-public'
    }
    ...
}

Once the public resources are in a separate directory, open a terminal and navigate to that dir. Generate public.xml by running pubxml.

You can also run pubxml automatically before each build in Android Studio. To get it working on Mac OS and linux, you can add the following to the library module gradle file:

task generatePublicXml(type: Exec) {
    workingDir 'src/main/res-public'
    commandLine 'bash', '-c', 'export PATH="$PATH:/usr/local/bin"; pubxml'
    ignoreExitValue true
}

//Don't run pubxml task on Windows
if (! System.getProperty('os.name').toLowerCase().contains('windows')) {
    preBuild.dependsOn generatePublicXml
}

Change workingDir if you used a different folder name. I don't have a Windows computer to test it on, so it is disabled on Windows to prevent the build from failing.
