ShimmerLayout

ShimmerLayout can be used to add shimmer effect (like the one used at Facebook or at LinkedIn) to your Android application. Beside memory efficiency even animating a big layout, you can customize the behaviour and look of the animation. Check out the wiki for attributes!

Download and usage

Get the latest artifact via gradle

implementation 'io.supercharge:shimmerlayout:2.1.0'

Create the layout on which you want to apply the effect and add as a child of a ShimmerLayout

<io.supercharge.shimmerlayout.ShimmerLayout
        android:id="@+id/shimmer_text"
        android:layout_width="wrap_content"
        android:layout_height="40dp"
        android:layout_gravity="center_horizontal"
        android:layout_marginTop="50dp"
        android:paddingLeft="30dp"
        android:paddingRight="30dp"
        app:shimmer_animation_duration="1200">

        <TextView
            android:layout_width="wrap_content"
            android:layout_height="match_parent"
            android:gravity="center"
            android:text="ShimmerLayout"
            android:textColor="@color/shimmer_background_color"
            android:textSize="26sp"/>
    </io.supercharge.shimmerlayout.ShimmerLayout>

Last, but not least you have to start it from your Java code

ShimmerLayout shimmerText = (ShimmerLayout) findViewById(R.id.shimmer_text);
shimmerText.startShimmerAnimation();
