Working with Spans is ugly and difficult to manage, it's like working with a goblin of Moria. Don't understand the Spans? With AwesomeText you will only have to work with the classic Adapter Pattern. All the ease and potential of a pattern you already know how to use.

Usage

On the same way that you working with ListAdapter, you must implement an interface to delegate the creation of the view, in this case AwesomeTextHandler.ViewSpanRenderer interface. The method getView is the responsible of this.

    public class HashtagsSpanRenderer implements AwesomeTextHandler.ViewSpanRenderer {

        @Override
        public View getView(String text, Context context) {
            LayoutInflater inflater = LayoutInflater.from(context);
            TextView hashtagView = inflater.inflate(R.layout.hashtag);
            hashtagView.setText(text);
            return hashtagView;
        }
    }

If you want to manage click events only must to implement AwesomeTextHandler.ViewSpanClickListener.

    public class MentionSpanRenderer implements AwesomeTextHandler.ViewSpanRenderer, AwesomeTextHandler.ViewSpanClickListener {

        @Override
        public View getView(String text, Context context) {
            LayoutInflater inflater = LayoutInflater.from(context);
            TextView mentionView = inflater.inflate(R.layout.mention);
            mentionView.setText(text);
            return mentionView;
        }

        @Override
        public void onClick(String text, Context context) {
            Toast.makeText(context, "Hello " + text, Toast.LENGTH_SHORT).show();
        }
    }

And finally you configure AwesomeTextHandler to view the changes. Now, when you call AwesomeTextHandler.setText the change will be rendered automatically.

    public class MainActivity extends ActionBarActivity {

        private static final String HASHTAG_PATTERN = "(#[\\p{L}0-9-_]+)";
        private static final String MENTION_PATTERN = "(@[\\p{L}0-9-_]+)";

        @Override
        protected void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {
            super.onCreate(savedInstanceState);
            setContentView(R.layout.activity_main);

            TextView textView = (TextView) findViewById(R.id.textview);
            EditText editText = (EditText) findViewById(R.id.editText);

            AwesomeTextHandler awesomeTextViewHandler = new AwesomeTextHandler();
            awesomeTextViewHandler
                .addViewSpanRenderer(HASHTAG_PATTERN, new HashtagsSpanRenderer())
                .addViewSpanRenderer(MENTION_PATTERN, new MentionSpanRenderer())
                .setView(textView);

            AwesomeTextHandler awesomeEditTextHandler = new AwesomeTextHandler();
            awesomeEditTextHandler
                .addViewSpanRenderer(HASHTAG_PATTERN, new HashtagsSpanRenderer())
                .addViewSpanRenderer(MENTION_PATTERN, new MentionSpanRenderer())
                .setView(editText);
        }
    }
