Leafactor: Improving Energy Efficiency of Android Apps via Automatic Refactoring – Luis Cru, Rui Abreu and Jean-Nöel Rouvignac
Leafactor is a tool to automatically improve the energy consumption of Android apps. It does so by refactoring the source code to follow a set of patterns known to be energy efficient. The toolset was validated using 222 refactorings in 140 open-source apps. Changes were submitted to the original apps by creating pull requests to the official projects.
