Commercial

InboxRecyclerView is a library for building expandable descendant navigation, inspired by Google Inbox and Reply. If you're interested in learning how it was created, here's a detailed blog post.

implementation 'me.saket:inboxrecyclerview:1.0.0-rc1'

FYI, InboxRecyclerView has a dependency on androidx. If you haven't migrated from the support library already, this would be a good opportunity.

Usage

InboxRecyclerView can be dropped in existing projects without requiring any effort. You can take a look at the sample app for best practices or download its APK for trying it out on your phone.

Layout

<me.saket.inboxrecyclerview.InboxRecyclerView
  android:layout_width="match_parent"
  android:layout_height="match_parent" />

<!--
  This is where your expandable content will be present. One
  way of using it would be to add a Fragment inside the layout
  and update it when any list item is clicked.

  It's recommended that the content page has a higher z-index
  than the list. This can be achieved by either giving it a
  higher view position or a higher elevation.
-->
<me.saket.inboxrecyclerview.page.ExpandablePageLayout
  android:layout_width="match_parent"
  android:layout_height="match_parent" />

Expanding content

recyclerView.setExpandablePage(contentPage)

recyclerViewAdapter.itemClickListener = { clickedItem ->
  expandableFragment.loadContent(clickedItem)
  recyclerView.expandItem(clickedItem.adapterId)
}

How do I…

Pull collapsible activities

To maintain consistency across the whole app, this library also includes a PullCollapsibleActivity that brings the same animations and gesture to activities with little effort.

Step 1. Extend PullCollapsibleActivity.

Step 2. Add these attributes to the activity’s theme:

<item name=“android:windowIsTranslucent”>true</item>
<item name=“android:colorBackgroundCacheHint”>@null</item>
