GravitySnapHelper

A SnapHelper that snaps a RecyclerView to an edge.

Setup

Add this to your build.gradle:

implementation 'com.github.rubensousa:gravitysnaphelper:2.2.0'

How to use

You can either create a GravitySnapHelper, or use GravitySnapRecyclerView.

If you want to use GravitySnapHelper directly, you just need to create it and attach it to your RecyclerView:

val snapHelper = GravitySnapHelper(Gravity.START)
snapHelper.attachToRecyclerView(recyclerView)

If you want to use GravitySnapRecyclerView, you can use the following xml attributes for customisation:

<attr name="snapGravity" format="enum">
<attr name="snapEnabled" format="boolean" />
<attr name="snapLastItem" format="boolean" />
<attr name="snapToPadding" format="boolean" />
<attr name="snapScrollMsPerInch" format="float" />
<attr name="snapMaxFlingSizeFraction" format="float" />

Example:

<com.github.rubensousa.gravitysnaphelper.GravitySnapRecyclerView
    android:id="@+id/recyclerView"
    android:layout_width="match_parent"
    android:layout_height="wrap_content"
    app:snapGravity="start" />

Start snapping

val snapHelper = GravitySnapHelper(Gravity.START)
snapHelper.attachToRecyclerView(recyclerView)

Center snapping

val snapHelper = GravitySnapHelper(Gravity.CENTER)
snapHelper.attachToRecyclerView(recyclerView)

Limiting fling distance

If you use setMaxFlingSizeFraction or setMaxFlingDistance you can change the maximum fling distance allowed.

With decoration

Features

  1. setMaxFlingDistance or setMaxFlingSizeFraction - changes the max fling distance allowed.
  2. setScrollMsPerInch - changes the scroll speed.

  4. setSnapToPadding - enables snapping to padding (default is false)
  5. smoothScrollToPosition and scrollToPosition
