Mosby - Conductor

Plugin for using Mosby with Conductor, a small, yet full-featured framework that allows building View-based Android applications.


Build Status

For Conductor 2.x with Mosby 3.x use:

dependencies {
    compile 'com.hannesdorfmann.mosby3:mvp-conductor:3.1.0'
    // or
    compile 'com.hannesdorfmann.mosby3:viewstate-conductor:3.1.0' // optional viewstate feature
    // or
    compile 'com.hannesdorfmann.mosby3:mvi-conductor:3.1.0' // Model-View-Intent


Latest snapshot (from master branch):

dependencies {
    compile 'com.hannesdorfmann.mosby3:mvi-conductor:3.1.1-SNAPSHOT' // Model-View-Intent
    // or
    compile 'com.hannesdorfmann.mosby3:mvp-conductor:3.1.1-SNAPSHOT'
    // or
    compile 'com.hannesdorfmann.mosby3:viewstate-conductor:3.1.1-SNAPSHOT' // optional viewstate feature


You also have to add the url to the snapshot repository:

allprojects {
  repositories {
    maven { url "" }


Extend your own Conductor Controller from MvpController or from MvpViewStateController if you want to use ViewState feature or from or MviController if you want to use the Model-View-Intent feature.

There are also two base LCE (Loading-Content-Error) Controllers you can extend from: MvpLceController and MvpLceViewStateController.

If you don't want to extend from one of the base controller classes shown above, you can always bring in Mosby easily in any Conductor controller:

class MyController extends Controller
                  implements MvpView, MvpConductorDelegateCallback<V, P> {

  // Initializer block (will be copied into constructor)
    addLifecycleListener(new MvpConductorLifecycleListener<V, P>(this);

  // implement all methods from  MvpConductorDelegateCallback like createPresenter() etc.


If you need ViewState support simply use MvpViewStateConductorLifecycleListener and MvpViewStateConductorDelegateCallback. Do the same for Model-View-Intent but use MviConductorLifecycleListener and MviConductorDelegateCallback.


Presenter will be created right after Controller.onCreateView() but before Controller.onAttach(). So in onAttach() presenter is ready to be used. View will be detached from Presenter in Controller.onDestroyView() by calling presenter.detachView(true) (true if view is just detached temporarily i.e. screen orientation change, false if view is detached permanently because Controller will be destroyed)


There is a nice external repository that shows how to use Mosby-Conductor. All credit goes to James Shvarts.

This repository contains a simple TO DO List app which is still work in progress.
