Feature

Card Library provides 3 custom tags:

  • CardView to display a UI Card.
  • CardListView to display a List Card.
  • CardGridView to display a Grid Card.

It requires API 14+


CardView displays a UI Card.

  • It provides different parts as a Header, a Thumbnail, a Shadow, a MainContentArea where you can inflate your custom layout
  • You can customize the global layout as you like
  • You can have some built-in features as OnClickListener, OnSwipeListener , OnLongClickListener
  • CardHeader provides an overflow button with a PopupMenuListener, a button to expand/collapse an area, or a customizable button with its listener.
  • CardThumbnail loads a Bitmap with a resource ID or with a URL using LRUCache and an AsyncTask

CardListView displays a List Card.

  • It uses CardView tag and all its properties.
  • It works with an CardArrayAdapter
  • It works with an CardCursorAdapter

CardGridView displays a Grid Card.

  • It uses CardView tag and some its properties.
  • It works with an `CardGridArrayAdapter

Usage

Creating a Card is pretty simple.

First, you need an XML layout that will display the Card.

        <it.gmariotti.cardslib.library.view.CardView
            android:id="@+id/carddemo"
            android:layout_width="match_parent"
            android:layout_height="wrap_content"
            android:layout_marginLeft="12dp"
            android:layout_marginRight="12dp"
            android:layout_marginTop="12dp"/>

Then create a model:

      //Create a Card
      Card card = new Card(getContext());

      //Create a CardHeader
      CardHeader header = new CardHeader(getContext());
      ....
      //Add Header to card
      card.addCardHeader(header);

Last get a reference to the CardView from your code, and set your Card.

       //Set card in the cardView
       CardView cardView = (CardView) getActivity().findViewById(R.id.carddemo);

       cardView.setCard(card);

Customization

Here you can find some pages to customize these tags.


Including in your project

Card Library is pushed to Maven Central as a AAR, so you just need to add the following dependency to your build.gradle.

dependencies {
    compile 'com.github.gabrielemariotti.cards:library:0.9.0'
}

To build the library and demo locally you can see this page for more info.
