  • Compatibility issues in latest version (from v2.0.3 to v2.0.6)

    Compatibility issues in latest version (from v2.0.3 to v2.0.6)

    Latest versions cause a startup crash when using Android R build tools (preview). They also have considerably increase the minimum Android API required to use Pandora to API 21 but the minSdkVersion flag of this library still allowing API 14.

    Android R problem:

    1. Update Android Studio to latest version (3.6.1).
    2. Create a new app project targeting Android R, it will automatically have:
    android {
        compileSdkVersion 'android-R'
        buildToolsVersion "29.0.3"
        defaultConfig {
            minSdkVersion 'R'
            targetSdkVersion 'R'
        }
    }
    
    1. Add jitpack and dependencies to the latest Pandora versions (v2.0.6)
    2. App builds but crash on initialisation with different outputs per versions

    Pandora v2.0.6: FATAL EXCEPTION: java.lang.ExceptionInInitializerError at okhttp3.OkHttpClient.(OkHttpClient.kt:211)...

    Pandora v2.0.3, v2.0.4 and v2.0.5: FATAL EXCEPTION: java.lang.NoSuchMethodError: No static method metafactory(...)Ljava/lang/invoke/CallSite; in class Ljava/lang/invoke/LambdaMetafactory; or its super classes (...) at okhttp3.internal.Util.(Util.java:87)...

    Pandora v2.0.2: Ok!

    API<21 problem

    Apps also crash if using latest versions in devices with API between 14 and 20:

    Pandora v2.0.3, v2.0.4, v2.0.5 and v2.0.6: FATAL EXCEPTION: java.lang.ExceptionInInitializerError at okhttp3.OkHttpClient.(OkHttpClient.kt:211)... Caused by: java.lang.IllegalStateException: Expected Android API level 21+ but was 19.

    Cause

    I believe all this issues are caused by the upgrade to Okhttp to v4.0.1 performed in Pandora v2.0.3.

    Temporarily solution

    We have downgrade Pandora to v2.0.2 and Retrofit to v2.3.0 (both using OkHttp 3.9.0). We can now run our app without problem from API 14 to latest API R (both included).

  • How to close it programmatically?

    How to close it programmatically?

    I found it's possible to close with EntranceView.close().

    However, my project will not compile trying to generate the release version, since EntranceView it's not part of the pandora-no-op.

    Would it be possible to add it, even if close method is completely empty? I just want it to compile, I have pandora disabled for release mode.

    Or is it a different way to hide the pandora bar?
