Discrollview

Regularly, I am pleasantly surprised by websites using a pattern I called the discrollver pattern. I'm sure you already know what I'm talking about but if not, http://vimeo.com/player is a good example. When you scroll, widgets appear from nowhere by fade, translation or scale.

With DiscrollView, I wanted to import this pattern on Android. This is an 0.0.1 alpha version because you have to do all the transformation work (fade, translation, scale etc) yourself base on a ratio value. I'm going to add some transformation presets (translation from left to right + fade in for example) to make the library more ready to use for lazy developers.

Try out the sample APK here

Or browse the source code of the sample application for a complete example of use.

Including in your project

Just add the library to your application as a library project.

Compatibilty

API 14+

Usage

Using the library is simple, just look at the source code of the provided sample here

build.gradle

compile 'com.github.flavienlaurent.discrollview:library:0.0.2@aar'

The main layout

You must use the DiscrollViewContent view.

<com.flavienlaurent.discrollview.lib.DiscrollView
    xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android"
    xmlns:discrollve="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res-auto"
    android:layout_width="match_parent"
    android:layout_height="match_parent">

    <com.flavienlaurent.discrollview.lib.DiscrollViewContent
        android:layout_width="match_parent"
        android:layout_height="match_parent">

        <!-- here you put discrollvable views -->

    </com.flavienlaurent.discrollview.lib.DiscrollViewContent>

</com.flavienlaurent.discrollview.lib.DiscrollView>

Discrollvable views

You can apply some transformation on discroll:

  • alpha
  • scale
  • translation (fromLeft, fromBottom, fromRight, fromTop) fromLeft+fromRight and fromBottom+fromTop are forbidden couples.
  • bgcolor
discrollve:discrollve_alpha="true"
discrollve:discrollve_translation="fromLeft|fromBottom"
discrollve:discrollve_scaleX="true"
discrollve:discrollve_scaleY="true"
discrollve:discrollve_fromBgColor="#88EE66"
discrollve:discrollve_toBgColor="#000000"
discrollve:discrollve_threshold="0.3"

The threshold attribute is used to trigger the discrollve at a specified ratio. For example, if threshold=0.3, the discrollve starts when the ratio >= 0.3.
