SectionedRecyclerView

A simple Android library that allows you to easily split your RecyclerView into expanding/collapsing sections with headers.

Setup

The Gradle dependency is available via jCenter.

Add this to your build.gradle file.

implementation 'com.github.zhukic:sectioned-recyclerview:1.2.3'

How it works

The main idea of the library is to determine whether to place a subheader between a pair of neighboring items. To do this, you need to implement the onPlaceSubheaderBetweenItems method, which returns true when you need to place a subheader between two neighboring items, false - otherwise.

@Override
public boolean onPlaceSubheaderBetweenItems(int position) {
    final char movieTitleFirstCharacter = movieList.get(position).getTitle().charAt(0);
    final char nextMovieTitleFirstCharacter = movieList.get(position + 1).getTitle().charAt(0);
    
    //The subheader will be placed between two neighboring items if the first characters in movie titles are different.
    return movieTitleFirstCharacter != nextMovieTitleFirstCharacter;
}

Sample

Please try out sample app for more details. Or:

Grid

If you are using a GridLayoutManager set it to adapter.

GridLayoutManager gridLayoutManager = new GridLayoutManager(getContext(), 2);
sectionedRecyclerAdapter.setGridLayoutManager(gridLayoutManager);
