GSoC 2012 Weekly Report on OI WebIntents Agent (July 16-22)
July 23, 2012Posted by on
Last week I added two URL shorten apps which now you can have an experience.
Currently you can feel the onSuccess callback by calling the Shorten with Goo.gl app. Following I will show some screenshots from my tablet.
Fig 1 is the shorten example page from webintents.org. When you click and choose Shorten with Goo.gl, you can get this screenshot.
When you click the return button, you can return to the former page with change on the bottom line.
When you share picture and calling the Web Intents Debugger, it may show like the following picture:
This is because Android uses content providers to locate and load files which no file extension can be found in the path. So the resulting data have no data type included. If you try to use the app in Chrome to share a image file with no extension or extension other than any image type like (.pdf, .doc, you can change it), the same thing will happen.
This week’s work
This week I will implement calling web intents from an Android app. The main idea now is to provide a customized Activity which any Android app can use to calling web intents.
