SuperAdapter

A Super simple library can be used for inserting elements in between RecyclerView's elements.

Gradle Dependency

Repository

Add this in your root build.gradle file (not your module build.gradle file):

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

Dependency

Add this to your module's build.gradle file:

dependencies {
 ...
 implementation 'com.github.pwnjeswani:SuperAdaper:0.1'
 }
}


STEP 2 ->
We want to have ad banners (or any other banner) on specfic positions in the useradapter,
for that we are adding dummyobjects (see class DummyObject) 
which takes itemViewType and position as parameters in the constructor 
override fun createOtherItemList() {
        var dummyObject = DummyObject(1, 1)
 var dummyObject2 = DummyObject(1, 3)
        super.otherViewPositions.add(dummyObject)
 super.otherViewPositions.add(dummyObject2)
    }
STEP 3 ->
After adding the dummy objects, we have to override getItemViewType function 
 override fun getItemViewType(position: Int): Int {
        val itemViewType = super.getItemViewType(position)
        return if (itemViewType != -1) {
  //it's dummy object hence returning the actual viewtype 
  //which was mentioned while creating other item list
            itemViewType
        } else {
  //it's item from your list (i.e, useritem) hence returning viewtype 0(User position)
            0
        }
    }
    
STEP 4 ->
Here is the createViewHolder and 
onBindViewHolder function's code for your reference. 
 override fun onCreateViewHolder(parent: ViewGroup, viewType: Int): RecyclerView.ViewHolder {
        when (viewType) {
            0 -> {
                val view = LayoutInflater.from(parent.context).inflate(R.layout.user_item_view, parent, false)
                return UserViewHolder(view)

            }
            1 -> {
                val view = LayoutInflater.from(parent.context).inflate(R.layout.ad_item_view, parent, false)
                return AdViewHolder(view)
            }
        }
    }
    
    override fun onBindViewHolder(holder: RecyclerView.ViewHolder, position: Int) {
        when (holder.itemViewType) {
            0 -> {
                val holderr = holder as UserViewHolder
                var user = super.baseList[position] as User
                holderr.tv_user_id.text = user.id.toString()
                holderr.tv_user_name.text = user.name
                holderr.tv_user_phone.text = user.phoneNo.toString()

            }
            1 -> {
     //write your own logic here
            }
        }
    }
    
STEP 5 -> Using this adapter in your activity/fragment
var userAdapter = UserAdapter(this)
userAdapter.setUserList(usersList)
var llm = LinearLayoutManager(this,RecyclerView.VERTICAL,false)
rv_useres.layoutManager = llm
rv_useres.adapter = userAdapter

Inspiration

In our company, we had frequent requirement of inserting elements in various lists. Earlier we were doing all tasks in the adapter itself, but that was getting frustating & also error prone code which requires long hours to fix and this cycle was repeating every week. To solve this problem Mr.CTO Avneesh Kumar seeded the idea of creating SuperAdapter.
