[TOOL][2.1+] InstaReloader HOT-SWAP classes & layouts while developing an app
We are working on InstaReloader - the development tool that reloads class and resource changes on the fly while developing the Android application.
Its purpose is to minimize the time consumed by the application rebuils and reinstalls during development.
Right now supported features are:
Adding and reloading regular and inner classes.
Refreshing changes in method bodies, adding and removing methods.
Adding and removing variables, constants.
Reloading changes in layouts, menus and other stuff in res directory.
Here is a short demo of InstaReloader:

What features are also needed? How many times per day do you rebuild & restart the app? We would like to add some reloading functionality to the popular frameworks and it would be great to hear your feedback
We improved layout reloading. Now you can add onClickListeners in the Java code for newly added elements and be able to interact with changes almost instanlty!
Planning to add support for Intellij IDEA soon.
This app can be used for all android roms? Or it has some requirements and support only some android devices?

I think should work almost an all ROMs, depends how significant it changes from the original android's one. So far I've successfully tested class reloading on LG, Samsung, HTC, ASUS devices with original ROMs.
With Layout reloading it's a bit harder because usually this part is "fragmented" so need to create a separate plugin for each brand.
Increasing speed and efficiency is a normal process in our modern world. We have many things to do and … more
