koin-androidx-workmanager project is dedicated to bring Android WorkManager features.
At start, in your KoinApplication declaration, use the
workManagerFactory() keyword to a setup custom WorkManager instance:
It's also important that you edit your AndroidManifest.xml to prevent Android initializing its default WorkManagerFactory, as shown in https://developer.android.com/topic/libraries/architecture/workmanager/advanced/custom-configuration . Failing to do so will make the app crash.
Creating extra work manager factories
You can also write a WorkManagerFactory and hand it over to Koin. It will be added as a delegate.
In case both Koin and workFactory1 provided WorkManagerFactory can instantiate a ListenableWorker, the factory provided by Koin will be the one used.
A few assumptions
Add manifest changes in koin lib itself
We can make it one step less for application developers if koin-androidx-workmanager's own manifest disables the default work manager. However it can be confusing since if the app developer don't initialize koin's work manager infrastructure, he'll end up having no usable work manager factories.
That's something that checkModules could help: if any class in the project implements ListenableWorker we inspect both manifest and code and make sure they make sense?
DSL Improvement option:
then have koin internals do something like
