Material Design implementation for Android 4.0 and newer. This is not the exact copy of the Lollipop's API and features. It's a custom implementation of the most useful things as shown in the design specification. Carbon tries to:
- make things easier (specify cornerRadius='dp' instead of creating an xml and/or a ViewOutlineProvider)
- make it all work and look the same on all APIs (like CheckBox's left padding)
- really backport features (don't use gradients for shadows!)
- fix Android's everlasting bugs (FrameLayout ignores child's padding when no gravity is set)
- custom item layouts for BottomNavigationView, TabLayout and NavigationView
- DayNight themes
- updated control colors
- fixed color animations, background tint, menu inflation, shadow transformations
- generated, animated shadows with elevation system
- the touch ripple
- rounded corners with content clipping
- circular reveal
- theme xml attribute
- widget and drawable tinting
- font resources
- edge effects
- simple to use xml attributes for stroke, cut corners, rounded corners and ripples
- colored shadows
- brightness/saturation fade
- SVG support (with transformations, text, gradients, etc.)
