Android Implementing a Leak Canary in Android Application


Example

In your build.gradle you need to add the below dependencies:

debugCompile 'com.squareup.leakcanary:leakcanary-android:1.5.1'
releaseCompile 'com.squareup.leakcanary:leakcanary-android-no-op:1.5.1'
testCompile 'com.squareup.leakcanary:leakcanary-android-no-op:1.5.1'

In your Application class you need to add the below code inside your onCreate():

LeakCanary.install(this);

That's all you need to do for LeakCanary, it will automatically show notifications when there is a leak in your build.
