Android Debug Database is a powerful library for debugging databases and shared preferences in Android applications

Android Debug Database allows you to view databases and shared preferences directly in your browser in a very simple way

What can Android Debug Database do?

All these features work without rooting your device -> No need of rooted device

Using Android Debug Database Library in your application

Add this to your app's build.gradle

debugImplementation 'com.amitshekhar.android:debug-db:1.0.6'

Using the Android Debug Database with encrypted database

debugImplementation 'com.amitshekhar.android:debug-db-encrypt:1.0.6'

And to provide the password for the DB, you should add this in the Gradle: DBPASSWORD{VARIABLE}, if for example, PERSON is the database name: DB_PASSWORD_PERSON

debug {
    resValue("string", "DB_PASSWORD_PERSON", "password")
}

Use debugImplementation so that it will only compile in your debug build and not in your release build.

That’s all, just start the application, you will see in the logcat an entry like follows :

Now open the provided link in your browser.

Important:

Note : If you want use different port other than 8080. In the app build.gradle file under buildTypes do the following change

debug {
    resValue("string", "PORT_NUMBER", "8081")
}

You will see something like this :

Seeing values

Editing values

Working with emulator

Getting address with toast, in case you missed the address log in logcat

As this library is auto-initialize, if you want to get the address log, add the following method and call (we have to do like this to avoid build error in release build as this library will not be included in the release build) using reflection.

public static void showDebugDBAddressLogToast(Context context) {
    if (BuildConfig.DEBUG) {
       try {
            Class<?> debugDB = Class.forName("com.amitshekhar.DebugDB");
            Method getAddressLog = debugDB.getMethod("getAddressLog");
            Object value = getAddressLog.invoke(null);
            Toast.makeText(context, (String) value, Toast.LENGTH_LONG).show();
       } catch (Exception ignore) {

       }
    }
}

Adding custom database files

As this library is auto-initialize, if you want to debug custom database files, add the following method and call

public static void setCustomDatabaseFiles(Context context) {
    if (BuildConfig.DEBUG) {
        try {
            Class<?> debugDB = Class.forName("com.amitshekhar.DebugDB");
            Class[] argTypes = new Class[]{HashMap.class};
            Method setCustomDatabaseFiles = debugDB.getMethod("setCustomDatabaseFiles", argTypes);
            HashMap<String, Pair<File, String>> customDatabaseFiles = new HashMap<>();
            // set your custom database files
            customDatabaseFiles.put(ExtTestDBHelper.DATABASE_NAME,
                    new Pair<>(new File(context.getFilesDir() + "/" + ExtTestDBHelper.DIR_NAME +
                                                    "/" + ExtTestDBHelper.DATABASE_NAME), ""));
            setCustomDatabaseFiles.invoke(null, customDatabaseFiles);
        } catch (Exception ignore) {

        }
    }
}

Adding InMemory Room databases

As this library is auto-initialize, if you want to debug inMemory Room databases, add the following method and call

public static void setInMemoryRoomDatabases(SupportSQLiteDatabase... database) {
    if (BuildConfig.DEBUG) {
        try {
            Class<?> debugDB = Class.forName("com.amitshekhar.DebugDB");
            Class[] argTypes = new Class[]{HashMap.class};
            HashMap<String, SupportSQLiteDatabase> inMemoryDatabases = new HashMap<>();
            // set your inMemory databases
            inMemoryDatabases.put("InMemoryOne.db", database[0]);
            Method setRoomInMemoryDatabase = debugDB.getMethod("setInMemoryRoomDatabases", argTypes);
            setRoomInMemoryDatabase.invoke(null, inMemoryDatabases);
        } catch (Exception ignore) {

        }
    }
}
