Usage

Imperative way - Listener

Step 1: Create Gesture attribute in the Activity:

private Gesture gesture;

Step 2: Initialize Gesture object and add GestureListner:

gesture = new Gesture();

gesture.addListener(new GestureListener() {
  @Override public void onPress(MotionEvent motionEvent) {
    textView.setText("press");
  }

  @Override public void onTap(MotionEvent motionEvent) {
    textView.setText("tap");
  }

  @Override public void onDrag(MotionEvent motionEvent) {
    textView.setText("drag");
  }

  @Override public void onMove(MotionEvent motionEvent) {
    textView.setText("move");
  }

  @Override public void onRelease(MotionEvent motionEvent) {
    textView.setText("release");
  }

  @Override public void onLongPress(MotionEvent motionEvent) {
    textView.setText("longpress");
  }

  @Override public void onMultiTap(MotionEvent motionEvent, int clicks) {
    textView.setText("multitap [" + clicks + "]");
  }
});

Step 3: Override dispatchTouchEvent(MotionEvent) method:

@Override public boolean dispatchTouchEvent(MotionEvent event) {
  gesture.dispatchTouchEvent(event);
  return super.dispatchTouchEvent(event);
}

Reactive way - RxJava

Step 1: Create Gesture attribute and Subscription in the Activity:

private Gesture gesture;
private Disposable subscription;

Step 2: Initialize Gesture object and subscribe RxJava Observable:

gesture = new Gesture();

subscription = gesture.observe()
  .subscribeOn(Schedulers.computation())
  .observeOn(AndroidSchedulers.mainThread())
  .subscribe(event -> {
    textView.setText(event.toString());
  });

GestureEvent is an enum with the following API:

public enum GestureEvent {
  ON_PRESS,
  ON_TAP,
  ON_DRAG,
  ON_MOVE,
  ON_RELEASE,
  ON_LONG_PRESS,
  ON_MULTI_TAP;

  int getClicks();
  GestureEvent withClicks(int clicks);
}

Step 3: Override dispatchTouchEvent(MotionEvent) method:

@Override public boolean dispatchTouchEvent(MotionEvent event) {
  gesture.dispatchTouchEvent(event);
  return super.dispatchTouchEvent(event);
}

Step 4: Don't forget to dispose subscription when it's no longer needed:

@Override protected void onPause() {
  super.onPause();
  if (subscription != null && !subscription.isDisposed()) {
    subscription.dispose();
  }
}
