Greedo Layout for Android

A drop-in custom layout manager for Android RecyclerViews to layout a grid of photos while respecting their aspect ratios.



Download the latest release via Gradle:

repositories {
	maven { url 'https://github.com/500px/greedo-layout-for-android/raw/master/releases/' }

dependencies {
	compile 'com.fivehundredpx:greedo-layout:1.1.0'


See the sample project for a complete solution on how to use GreedoLayout. Below are the specific steps.

// Create an instance of the GreedoLayoutManager and pass it to the RecyclerView
MyRecyclerAdapter recyclerAdapter = new MyRecyclerAdapter(this);
GreedoLayoutManager layoutManager = new GreedoLayoutManager(recyclerAdapter);

RecyclerView recyclerView = (RecyclerView)findViewById(R.id.recycler_view);

// Set the max row height in pixels

// If you would like to add spacing between items (Note, MeasUtils is in the sample project)
int spacing = MeasUtils.dpToPx(4, this);
recyclerView.addItemDecoration(new GreedoSpacingItemDecoration(spacing));

And then, in your RecyclerView adapter, or some other class of your choosing, implement SizeCalculatorDelegate. This implementation got passed to the layout manager above.

public class MyRecyclerAdapter extends RecyclerView.Adapter<ViewHolder> implements SizeCalculatorDelegate {
    public double aspectRatioForIndex(int index) {
    	// Return the aspect ratio of your image at the given index
