A Material Design themed ShowcaseView for Android

This library is heavily inspired by the original ShowcaseView library.

Since Google introduced the Material design philosophy I have seen quite a few apps with a nice clean, flat showcase view (the Youtube app is a good example). The only library out there however is the original one. This was a great library for a long time but the theming is now looking a bit dated.

Gradle


jitpack

Add the jitpack repo to your your project's build.gradle at the end of repositories Why?

/build.gradle

allprojects {
    repositories {
        jcenter()
        maven { url "https://jitpack.io" }
    }
}

Then add the dependency to your module's build.gradle:

/app/build.gradle

compile 'com.github.deano2390:MaterialShowcaseView:1.1.0'

NOTE: Some people have mentioned that they needed to add the @aar suffix to get it to resolve from JitPack:

compile 'com.github.deano2390:MaterialShowcaseView:1.1.0@aar'

How to use


This is the basic usage of a single showcase view, you should check out the sample app for more advanced usage.

    // single example
    new MaterialShowcaseView.Builder(this)
                .setTarget(mButtonShow)
                .setDismissText("GOT IT")
                .setContentText("This is some amazing feature you should know about")
                .setDelay(withDelay) // optional but starting animations immediately in onCreate can make them choppy
                .singleUse(SHOWCASE_ID) // provide a unique ID used to ensure it is only shown once
                .show();




        // sequence example            
        ShowcaseConfig config = new ShowcaseConfig();
        config.setDelay(500); // half second between each showcase view

        MaterialShowcaseSequence sequence = new MaterialShowcaseSequence(this, SHOWCASE_ID);

        sequence.setConfig(config);

        sequence.addSequenceItem(mButtonOne,
                "This is button one", "GOT IT");

        sequence.addSequenceItem(mButtonTwo,
                "This is button two", "GOT IT");

        sequence.addSequenceItem(mButtonThree,
                "This is button three", "GOT IT");

        sequence.start();

Why Jitpack


Publishing libraries to Maven is a chore that takes time and effort. Jitpack.io allows me to release without ever leaving GitHub so I can release easily and more often.
