Don't write a ViewPager Adapter! Hook up your ViewPager to your data model using Android Data Binding Framework.

Show some ❤️



💋 Sweet and short library

Use the language of your choice.

// Java
new LastPagerAdapter(BR.model)
    .add(R.layout.layout_one, "First Layout Title", modelObject1)
    .add(R.layout.layout_two, "Second Layout Title", modelObject2)
    .into(viewPager);
// Kotlin
viewpager.lastPagerAdapter(BR.model) {
    add(R.layout.layout_one, "First Layout Title", modelObject1)
    add(R.layout.layout_two, "Second Layout Title", modelObject2)
}

Download the demo apk to play around with the LastPagerAdapter demo app.

👑 Features

LastPagerAdapter
🚝 Within a few lines easily hook up your data models with your ViewPager
🔗 Based on Android Data Binding
Written in Kotlin. A concise language you should definitely check out, if you haven't already.
✏️ No need to write any PagerAdapter (FragmentPagerAdapter, etc.)
Doesn't rely on Fragments. It has complex lifecycle and best be avoided. More reasons why
No need to modify your existing model classes
📃 Supports different View layouts and hooking it up with ViewPager is a breeze
👌 Super easy API. Concise syntax. Less Bugs for you to worry about. Boosted Productivity.
📝 Helpful error stacktraces
🚀 Very fast — no reflection
📱 Minimum Android SDK: Gingerbread API 9

🏛 Build

Add this in your root build.gradle at the end of repositories:

allprojects {
    repositories {
        ...
        maven { url 'https://jitpack.io' }
    }
}

Step 2. Add the dependency in your module's gradle file

// apply plugin: 'kotlin-kapt'  // this line only for Kotlin projects

android {
    ...
    dataBinding.enabled true
}

dependencies {
    compile 'com.github.rakshakhegde:LastPagerAdapter:1.2'
    // kapt 'com.android.databinding:compiler:GRADLE_PLUGIN_VERSION' // this line only for Kotlin projects
}

🤔 How to use

<layout> as root for your View layouts is a must:

<layout xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android" >

    <data>
        <variable name="model" type="io.github.rakshakhegde.lastpageradaptersample.TextModel" />
    </data>

    <TextView
        android:layout_width="match_parent"
        android:layout_height="wrap_content"
        android:text="@{model.text}" />

</layout>

It is important for all the model types to have the same variable name, in this case "model". This name is passed to the adapter constructor as BR.variableName, in this case BR.model:

// Java
new LastPagerAdapter(BR.model)
    .add(R.layout.text_layout, "Optional Layout Title", optionalTextModelObject, optionalWidth)
    .into(viewPager); // don't forget this line
// Kotlin
viewpager.lastPagerAdapter(BR.model) {
    add(R.layout.text_layout, "Optional Layout Title", optionalTextModelObject, optionalWidth)
}

Except the layoutId, everything else is optional

And that is how easy it is. Download the demo apk to play around with the LastPagerAdapter demo app.

👎 Known Issues

  • Customizability in terms of having independent names for models in XML is not present
  • API seems a bit verbose for large number of similar views. Could implement a version which accepts arrays. Anyways, a loop could be used there.
  • Callbacks for creation or destruction of Views is not implemented (I didn't implement them because personally my use case didn't require it). Feel free to Pull Request this one.
