ListViewAnimations (Play Store Demo)

ListViewAnimations is an Open Source Android library that allows developers to easily create ListViews with animations. Feel free to use it all you want in your Android apps provided that you cite this project and include the license in your app.

ListViewAnimations uses the NineOldAndroids library to support devices <3.0.
It also uses Roman Nurik's BETA SwipeDismissListViewTouchListener to support swipe to dismiss.

Version 2.0 now supports GridViews! (And other implementations of AbsListView)
It also contains an ExpandableListItemAdapter for smoothly expanding your Views!

Known applications using ListViewAnimations

If you want your app to be listed as well please contact me via Google Plus!

Setup

  • In Eclipse, just import the library as an Android library project.
  • Project > Clean to generate the binaries you need, like R.java, etc.
  • Then, just add ListViewAnimations as a dependency to your existing project and you're good to go!

Or:

Usage

This library uses the Decorator Pattern to stack multiple BaseAdapterDecorators on each other:

  • Implement your own BaseAdapter, or reuse an existing one.
  • Stack multiple BaseAdapterDecorators on each other, with your BaseAdapter as a base.
  • Set the ListView to your last BaseAdapterDecorator.
  • Set your last BaseAdapterDecorator to the ListView.

Example:

/* This example will stack two animations on top of eachother */
@Override
protected void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {
    super.onCreate(savedInstanceState);

    MyListAdapter mAdapter = new MyListAdapter(this, getItems());
    SwingBottomInAnimationAdapter swingBottomInAnimationAdapter = new SwingBottomInAnimationAdapter(mAdapter);
    SwingRightInAnimationAdapter swingRightInAnimationAdapter = new SwingRightInAnimationAdapter(swingBottomInAnimationAdapter);

    // Or in short notation:
    swingRightInAnimationAdapter = 
        new SwingRightInAnimationAdapter(
            new SwingBottomInAnimationAdapter(
                    new MyListAdapter(this, getItems())));

    // Assign the ListView to the AnimationAdapter and vice versa
    swingRightInAnimationAdapter.setAbsListView(getListView());
    getListView().setAdapter(swingRightInAnimationAdapter);
}

private class MyListAdapter extends com.haarman.listviewanimations.ArrayAdapter<String> {

    private Context mContext;

    public MyListAdapter(Context context, ArrayList<String> items) {
        super(items);
        mContext = context;
    }

    @Override
    public View getView(int position, View convertView, ViewGroup parent) {
        TextView tv = (TextView) convertView;
        if (tv == null) {
            tv = (TextView) LayoutInflater.from(mContext).inflate(R.layout.list_row, parent, false);
        }
        tv.setText(getItem(position));
        return tv;
    }
}

Custom AnimationAdapters

Instead of using the ready-made adapters in the .swinginadapters.prepared package, you can also implement your own AnimationAdapter. Implement one of the following classes:

  • ResourceAnimationAdapter
  • SingleAnimationAdapter
  • AnimationAdapter

See the examples.
