Reactive Paging and Loading

Download Android Arsenal License: MIT

This library implements reactive paging and loading.

It helps to handle the states of loading a simple data (LCE - loading/content/error) or the complex states of lists with pagination (PLCE - paging/loading/content/error).

The solution is based on the usage of Unidirectional Data Flow pattern.

The library depends on RxJava, so you will find familiar interfaces in it's API.

Dependency

Add the dependency to your build.gradle:

dependencies {
    implementation 'ru.mobileup:rxpagingloading:1.0.0'
}

Loading a simple data

Loading interface looks as follows:

interface Loading<T> {

    enum class Action { REFRESH, FORCE_REFRESH }

    val state: Observable<State<T>>

    val actions: Consumer<Action>

    data class State<T>(
        val content: T? = null,
        val loading: Boolean = false,
        val error: Throwable? = null
    )
}

It includes:

  • State class — represents LCE state.
  • Action enum - the possible actions.
  • state: Observable - observes changes of the LCE state.
  • actions: Consumer - receives performed Action.

There are two implementations of this interface:

LoadingOrdinary

This class is for simple case when at first load or after refresh content comes from Single data source, passed into the constructor:

LoadingOrdinary(
    source = Single.just("Content string")
)

LoadingAssembled

This implementation is for case when there is a separate Сompletable to refresh the content and an Observable stream for receiving this content updates:

LoadingAssembled(
    refresh = repository.refreshDataCompletable(),
    updates = repository.dataChangesObservable()
)

Paging

The Paging interface looks a bit more complicated. In addition to the LCE, it has the paging states:

interface Paging<T> {

    enum class Action { REFRESH, FORCE_REFRESH, LOAD_NEXT_PAGE }

    val state: Observable<State<T>>

    val actions: Consumer<Action>

    data class State<T>(
        val content: List<T>? = null,
        val loading: Boolean = false,
        val error: Throwable? = null,
        val pageLoading: Boolean = false,
        val pageError: Throwable? = null,
        val lastPage: Page<T>? = null
    ) {
        val isEndReached: Boolean get() = lastPage?.isEndReached ?: false
    }

    interface Page<T> {
        val items: List<T>
        val lastItem: T? get() = items.lastOrNull()
        val isEndReached: Boolean
    }
}

Note, the State also stores the last loaded page. It is used to download the following page, as well as to determine the end of the list.

Page is an interface made for flexibility. Your data source can map a page data to it's own class. For example, you can store an identifier of the last entity, or a link to the next page, or any data depending on your back-end requirements. The last page will be passed to a lambda pageSource from the constructor of the PagingImpl:

class PageInfo(
    override val items: List<Item>,
    override val isEndReached: Boolean
    lastItemId: Int
) : Paging.Page<Item>

PagingImpl(
    pageSource = { offset, lastPage ->
        repository
            .loadPage(lastItemId = lastPage?.lastItemId)
            .map {
                PageInfo(
                    items = it.list,
                    isEndReached = (offset + it.list.size) == it.totalCount
                    it.lastItemId
                )
            }
    }
)

Display the state

You can just use the resulting PLCE or LCE state to render your screen UI. Or you can use extensions from LoadingExtensions.kt and PagingExtensions.kt to observe individual state parts changes. It's helpful when you don't need all of the states or use with MVVM-like pattern.

In the sample we use the RxPM library and extensions to split resulting state to the Presentation Model states.
