Card Slider

This is an Android library that implemnts carousel effect with many features and attrs to get exactly what you need.

Demo App

Card Slider components

  1. CardSliderViewPager: Custom ViewPager2 and uses a page transformer to apply carousel effect as shown in GIF.
    • As ViewPager2 is still a final class follow this issue, I added it as part of my package.
  2. CardSliderIndicator: Custom LinearLayout that that contain indicators as children views.
  3. CardSliderAdapter: Abstract class that must be extended and passed to CardSliderViewPager as its adapter.

Features

1- Show preview of pages in left and right (or top and bottom).

2- Can resize (scale) and change opacity of the pages to make focused page larger and more focused in height as shown in GIF (carousel effect).

3- Can make pages auto swiped after specific time.

4- Add indicator and full customize it easily.

5- Infinite indicators like those in the Instagram app.

6- RTL Support.

7- Support vertical orientation.

Usage

  1. Add it to your layout:
 <com.github.islamkhsh.CardSliderViewPager
           android:layout_width="match_parent"
           android:layout_height="wrap_content"
           android:id="@+id/viewPager"
           android:layout_marginTop="24dp"
           app:cardSlider_smallScaleFactor="0.9" //scale factor of height of pages in left and right (1 if no resizing nedded)
           app:cardSlider_otherPagesWidth="24dp" // width of displayed parts of left and right pages
           app:cardSlider_pageMargin="12dp" // margin between pages
       app:auto_slide_time="3"/>  // auto sliding time in seconds
  1. Create your item (page) layout.

  2. Extend CardSliderAdapter

class MovieAdapter(private val movies : ArrayList<Movie>) : CardSliderAdapter<MovieAdapter.MovieViewHolder>() {

    override fun getItemCount() = movies.size

    override fun onCreateViewHolder(parent: ViewGroup, viewType: Int): MovieViewHolder {
        val view = LayoutInflater.from(parent.context).inflate(R.layout.item_page, parent, false)
        return MovieViewHolder(view)
    }
    
    override fun bindVH(holder: MovieViewHolder, position: Int) {
      //TODO bind item object with item layout view
    }

    class MovieViewHolder(view: View) : RecyclerView.ViewHolder(view)
}

or using Java

public class MovieAdapter extends CardSliderAdapter<MovieAdapter.MovieViewHolder> {
    
    private ArrayList<Movie> movies;
    
    public MovieAdapter(ArrayList<Movie> movies){
        this.movies = movies;
    }
    
    @Override
    public int getItemCount(){
     return movies.getSize();
    }
    
     @Override
    public MovieViewHolder onCreateViewHolder(ViewGroup parent, int viewType) {
        View view = LayoutInflater.from(parent.getContext()).inflate(R.layout.item_page, parent, false);
 return new MovieViewHolder(view);
    }
    
    @Override
    public void bindVH(int position, MovieViewHolder holder) {
      //TODO bind item object with item layout view
    }
    
    class MovieViewHolder extends RecyclerView.ViewHolder {
     
 public MovieViewHolder(View view){
       super(view);
 }
    }
}
  1. Add adapter to CardSliderViewPager
  val movies = ArrayList<Movie>().apply{
  // add items to arraylist
  }
  
  findViewById<CardSliderViewPager>(R.id.viewPager).adapter = MoviesAdapter(movies)

or using Java

  ArrayList<Movie> movies = new ArrayList<Movie>();
    // add items to arraylist
  
  CardSliderViewPager cardSliderViewPager = (CardSliderViewPager) findViewById(R.id.viewPager);
  cardSliderViewPager.setAdapter(new MoviesAdapter(movies));

5- To add indicator add it to your layout

 <com.github.islamkhsh.CardSliderIndicator
            android:layout_width="wrap_content"
            android:layout_height="wrap_content"
            android:id="@+id/indicator"
     app:indicatorsToShow="5" />

And then bind it with your CardSliderViewPager

  <com.github.islamkhsh.CardSliderViewPager
            ...
            app:cardSlider_indicator="@id/indicator"/>
