DataBinding RecyclerViewAdapter

中文版 README

Free from writing adapters! NO MORE CLASSES!

Super simple RecyclerView adapter using Data Binding Technology, no longer need to write any adapter! You don't need to write any extra class like ViewHolder or ItemView.

One more reason you should try Data Binding!

Get Started

dependencies {
    compile 'com.github.markzhai:databinding-rv-adapter:1.0.1'
}

This library provide two types of RecyclerView.Adapter.

SingleTypeAdapter:

SingleTypeAdapter<EmployeeViewModel> adapter = new SingleTypeAdapter<>(this, R.layout.item_single_type);

MultiTypeAdapter:

MultiTypeAdapter adapter = new MultiTypeAdapter(this);
adapter.addViewTypeToLayoutMap(VIEW_TYPE_HEADER, R.layout.item_header);
adapter.addViewTypeToLayoutMap(VIEW_TYPE_CODER, R.layout.item_coder);
adapter.addViewTypeToLayoutMap(VIEW_TYPE_BOSS, R.layout.item_boss);

The only limitation is naming convention: your view model in xml should be named item, and your presenter should be named presenter, which I do think is a good practice.

Advanced Usage

Manipulation

singleTypeAdapter.addAll(EMPLOYEE_LIST);
// clear and addAll
singleTypeAdapter.set(EMPLOYEE_LIST);
singleTypeAdapter.add(employee);
// add with specific position
singleTypeAdapter.add(2, employee);

multiTypeAdapter.add(null, VIEW_TYPE_HEADER);
multiTypeAdapter.addAll(EMPLOYEE_LIST, VIEW_TYPE_EMPLOYEE);
multiTypeAdapter.addAll(EMPLOYER_LIST, VIEW_TYPE_EMPLOYER);
multiTypeAdapter.add(2, employee, VIEW_TYPE_EMPLOYEE);

// Like clear + addAll
multiTypeAdapter.set(EMPLOYEE_LIST, VIEW_TYPE_EMPLOYEE);

// both have these methods
adapter.clear();
adapter.remove(2);

Listener Binding

The library also provide an easy way to add listener binding, and by default provide a whole item click listener.

public class DemoAdapterPresenter implements BaseViewAdapter.Presenter {
    public void onItemClick(EmployeeViewModel model) {
        Toast.makeText(MainActivity.this, "employee " + model.name, Toast.LENGTH_SHORT).show();

    }
    public void onItemClick(EmployerViewModel model) {
        Toast.makeText(MainActivity.this, "employer " + model.name, Toast.LENGTH_SHORT).show();
    }
}

multiTypeAdapter.setPresenter(new DemoAdapterPresenter());

singleTypeAdapter.setPresenter(new SingleTypeAdapter.Presenter<EmployeeViewModel>() {

    @Override
    public void onItemClick(EmployeeViewModel model) {
        Toast.makeText(MainActivity.this, model.name, Toast.LENGTH_SHORT).show();
    }
});

Decorator

Sometimes, we may want to do some extra works in onBindViewHolder, thus we provide a Decorator to let user implement and set it in.

public class DemoAdapterDecorator implements BaseViewAdapter.Decorator {

    @Override
    public void decorator(BindingViewHolder holder, int position, int viewType) {
        // you may do something according to position or view type
    }
}

adapter.setDecorator(new DemoAdapterDecorator());

They are somehow likely and powerful, enable you to save codes. However, both of them have the problems that lose flexibility and force you to create something like a wrapper which is annoyed.
