## Project Setup

To use Android Graphics Utilities in the project, add the following dependency to your Gradle script:

```
implementation "it.czerwinski.android:graphics-util:$graphicsUtilVersion"
```

## Library Features

### Constants

The library defines several useful constants:

`PI`

–`Float`

value closest to*π*(the Ludolphian number)`DOUBLE_PI`

–`Float`

value closest to 2*π*`RIGHT_ANGLE`

–`Float`

value of the right angle measured in degrees (90)`STRAIGHT_ANGLE`

–`Float`

value of the straight angle measured in degrees (180)`FULL_ANGLE`

–`Float`

value of the full angle measured in degrees (360)

### Extensions for angles

There are several extension functions for `Float`

, useful when working with angles.

#### Conversion between radians and degrees

To convert radians to degrees, use `Float.radToDeg()`

, e.g.:

```
val degrees = PI.radToDeg() // 180.0f
```

To convert degrees to radians, use `Float.degToRad()`

, e.g.:

```
val radians = STRAIGHT_ANGLE.degToRad() // PI / 2
```

#### Conversion between angle in degrees and arc length

To calculate the angle enclosing the arc with the specified length and radius,
use `arcLengthToAngle()`

, e.g.:

```
val angle = DOUBLE_PI.arcLengthToAngle(radius = 2f) // 180.0f
```

To calculate the length of an arc enclosed by the specified angle and having specified radius,
use `angleToArcLength()`

, e.g.:

```
val angle = 90.angleToArcLength(radius = 4f) // 2 * PI
```

### Extensions for colours

#### Mixing colours

To mix two colours in a specified proportion, use `mixColors()`

, e.g.:

```
val orange = mixColors(Color.RED, Color.YELLOW, ratio = 0.5f)
```

### Extensions for rectangles

#### Setting `Rect`

An instance of `Rect`

can be set with the values closest to a defined `RectF`

, e.g.:

```
val rectF: RectF
val rect: Rect
rect.set(rectF)
```

It is also possible to set values in an instance of `Rect`

to enclose
a circle or an oval, e.g.:

```
rect.setCircle(cx = 10, cx = 20, radius = 1) // Rect(left = 9, top = 19, right = 11, bottom = 21)
rect.setOval(cx = 10, cx = 20, rx = 3, ry = 2) // Rect(left = 7, top = 18, right = 13, bottom = 22)
```

#### Setting `RectF`

Extensions facilitating definition of a rectangle enclosing a circle or an oval
are also provided for `RectF`

, e.g.:

```
rectF.setCircle(cx = 1f, cx = 2f, radius = 0.5f) // RectF(left = 0.5f, top = 1.5f, right = 1.5f, bottom = 2.5f)
rectF.setOval(cx = 1f, cx = 2f, rx = 1.5f, ry = 1f) // RectF(left = -0.5f, top = 1f, right = 2.5f, bottom = 3f)
```

### Extensions for paths

#### Defining a new path

To easily replace an existing `Path`

with a new contour,
use `Path.set()`

extension, e.g.:

```
path.set(close = true) {
moveTo(1f, 1f)
lineTo(2f, 1f)
lineTo(2f, 2f)
lineTo(1f, 2f)
}
```

#### Advanced paths

`AdvancedPath`

provides several additional methods to Android `Path`

s.

An additional version of `arcTo`

allows to add arc contours in a more intuitive way, e.g.:

```
path.arcTo(
cx = 1f,
cy = 2f,
radius = 0.5f,
startAngle = 10f,
sweepAngle = 20f,
forceMoveTo = true
)
```

`AdvancedPath`

also contains methods for defining circular sectors and annulus (ring) sectors, e.g.:

```
path.addCircleSector(
cx = 1f,
cy = 2f,
radius = 10f,
startAngle = 90f,
sweepAngle = 90f,
inset = 0.1f
)
path.addRingSector(
cx = 1f,
cy = 2f,
radius = 10f,
startAngle = 90f,
sweepAngle = 90f,
thickness = 2.5f,
inset = 0.1f
)
```

### Extensions for canvas

#### Transformations

Android KTX defines a few extensions for affine transformations. For example, it is possible to perform part of the drawing with translation:

```
canvas.withTranslation(x = 10f, y = 20f) {
drawText(…)
}
```

Android Graphics Utilities define an additional extension for translation with radial coordinates:

```
canvas.withRadialTranslation(
distance = 10f,
angle = 30f
) {
drawText(…)
}
```
