kivy android share image

I want to create share button that will use android ACTION_SEND intent for sharing image. It's my code:

from kivy.setupconfig import USE_SDL2

def share(path):
if platform == 'android':
from jnius import cast
from jnius import autoclass
if USE_SDL2:
PythonActivity = autoclass('org.kivy.android.PythonActivity')
PythonActivity = autoclass('org.renpy.android.PythonActivity')
Intent = autoclass('android.content.Intent')
String = autoclass('java.lang.String')
Uri = autoclass('android.net.Uri')
File = autoclass('java.io.File')

shareIntent = Intent(Intent.ACTION_SEND)
imageFile = File(path)
uri = Uri.fromFile(imageFile)
shareIntent.putExtra(Intent.EXTRA_STREAM, uri)

currentActivity = cast('android.app.Activity', PythonActivity.mActivity)

But it doesn't work) It throws this error
jnius.jnius.JavaException: Invalid instance of u'android/net/Uri' passed for a u'java/lang/String'
in this line
shareIntent.putExtra(Intent.EXTRA_STREAM, uri)
. How can i fix this?


I found solution. You must cast uri to parcelable and then pass it to intent:

parcelable = cast('android.os.Parcelable', uri)
shareIntent.putExtra(Intent.EXTRA_STREAM, parcelable)
