HujiangTechnology / gradle_plugin_android_aspectjx


A Android gradle plugin that effects AspectJ on Android project and can hook methods in Kotlin, aar and jar file.



A gradle plugin that supports using AspectJ in android project. can weave third party libs and kotlin code


why born

There is no perfect AOP tools or framework on android, even though xposed and dexposed are fantastic libs, but not compatible for all Android system versions.And some of the AspectJ plugins can not work well on libs(aar, jar) and kotlin code.

aspectjx takes some great ideas from JakeWharton's project Hugo and uPhyca's gradle-android-aspectj-plugin, and extends the ability to support aar, jar, kotlin. Thanks to JakeWharton and uPhyca.

How to use

Before using aspectjx, Android gradle plugin version must be greater than or equal 1.5.0, and aspectjx must be used in application module, not library module.

i. dependency

dependencies {
        classpath 'com.hujiang.aspectjx:gradle-android-plugin-aspectjx:1.0.10'


using JAR from product. Make new directory named as plugins, and put product/gradle-android-plugin-aspectjx-1.0.10.jar in plugins, then do as below:

dependencies {
        classpath fileTree(dir:'plugins', include:['*.jar'])
        //don't lost dependency
        classpath 'org.aspectj:aspectjtools:1.8.+'

ATTENTION: compile 'org.aspectj:aspectjrt:1.8.+' must be added to the modules that contain the AspectJ code, read the Demo

ii. using in application module

apply plugin: 'android-aspectjx'

iii. aspectjx extension configuration

aspectjx will scan and weave all .class file and jar, aar by the default,except for add some filter config includeJarFilter, excludeJarFilter. includeJarFilter, excludeJarFilter can support groupId filter, artifactId filter and dependency path matching.

aspectjx {
	//includes the libs that you want to weave
	includeJarFilter 'universal-image-loader', 'AspectJX-Demo/library'
	//excludes the libs that you don't want to weave
	excludeJarFilter 'universal-image-loader'
  • excludes the lib whose groupId is org.apache.httpcomponents
aspectjx {
	excludeJarFilter 'org.apache.httpcomponents'
  • exlucdes the lib whose artifactId is gson
	aspectjx {
		excludeJarFilter 'gson'
  • excludes the jar alisdk-tlog-1.jar
	aspectjx {
		excludeJarFilter 'alisdk-tlog-1'
  • excludes all dependency libs
aspectjx {
	excludeJarFilter '.jar'


  • IntelliJ now has no tools for AspectJ, Just Annotation Style AspectJ can work on Android studio. *.aj file can not be compiled . How to use Annotation Style AspectJ
  • AspectJ may not work well on Android studio with Instant Run feature, if so, close the Instant Run feature.
  • AspectJ may compile error as below, just exlcudes the associated lib to resolve it.

  • The Classes and methods that you want to hooked in AOP should not be obfuscated:
package com.hujiang.test;

public class A {
    public boolean funcA(String args) {

//if you want to hook A#funcA(String) in AOP code, keep this class and method in proguard config file

-keep class com.hujiang.test.A {*;}
