Locus is a tiny kotlin library for android which makes it super very easy to retrieve location with just few lines of code. Everything including permission model and Location settings resolution is handled internally which removes a lot of boilerplate code any developer have to write every time.


  • Android R support (Please report if any issue is found)
  • Completely written in Kotlin
  • Easy Initialization
  • Handles Permission Model
  • No Boilerplate
  • Built on Kotlin DSL
  • Manifest Permission Check
  • Life-Cycle Aware Location Updates
  • Location Settings Check
  • Location Settings Request
  • Custom Location Options Configuration
  • Custom Relation Dialog configuration
  • Custom Permission Blocked Dialog configuration

IMPORTANT: Deprecation from v3.2.0

Text Customizations using Locus.configure{} block is deprecated in v3.2.0. That means rationaleText, rationaleTitle, blockedTitle, blockedText, resolutionTitle, and resolutionText are deprecated. Migration would be to customize/override them from strings.xml.

It is deprecated in v3.2.0 and will be removed completely in next release.


Locus.configure {
    rationaleTitle = "Rationale Title"
    rationaleTitle = "This is a rationale message."
    blockedTitle = "Permission Blocked Title"
    blockedText = "This is a permission blocked message."
    resolutionTitle = "Permission Resolution Title"
    resolutionText = "This is a permission resolution message."



<string name="locus_rationale_title">Rationale Title</string>
<string name="locus_rationale_message">This is a rationale message.</string>
<string name="locus_permission_blocked_title">Permission Blocked Title</string>
<string name="locus_permission_blocked_message">This is a permission blocked message.</string>
<string name="locus_location_resolution_title">Permission Resolution Title</string>
<string name="locus_location_resolution_message">This is a permission resolution message.</string>

checkout strings.xml.
