Do you think we are missing an alternative of Skycons or a related project?
We set out to create a native weather app on Xamarin but we wanted to build something unique to differentiate ourselves amongst the plethora of weather apps avaialble out there. The DarkSky app & Forecast did an excellent job with their Skycons.
We wanted to re-use the same icons for our app as well, however, we found that these animated icons don't exist natively on either platforms. This is currently a work-in-progress as the team is finetuning the animation & the performance itself. You can download the complete repository which also contains the sample project SkyconsDemo.
Built with Android Studio (2.2.3)
|Clear Sky (Sunny)||SunView|
|Partly Cloudy Day||CloudSunView|
|Partly Cloudy Night||CloudMoonView|
How to use
- Deployment target should be API level 14 or above.
- Import 'SkyconsLibrary' as a library to your project.
1) To add a skycon(icon) through the XML: <com.thbs.skycons.library.<skycon> android:layout_width="250dp" android:layout_height="250dp" android:layout_centerHorizontal="true" android:layout_centerVertical="true" app:isStatic = "true" app:strokeColor = "#000000" app:bgColor = "#ffffff"/> where <skycon> represents the particular view/icon. For example "MoonView" 2) To add a skycon(For instance, WindView) through Java code, perform following in the activity: LinearLayout layout = new LinearLayout(this); LinearLayout.LayoutParams params = new LinearLayout.LayoutParams( LinearLayout.LayoutParams.WRAP_CONTENT, LinearLayout.LayoutParams.WRAP_CONTENT); layout.setLayoutParams(params); //Using these params, you can control view attributes //attributres include boolean isStatic,boolean isAnimated, int strokeColor , int backgroundColor WindView windView = new WindView(this,true,false, Color.parseColor("#000000"),Color.parseColor("#ffffff")); //Using these params, you can control width & height of the icon params.width = 200; params.height = 200; windView.setLayoutParams(params); layout.addView(windView); this.setContentView(layout);
- For a better experience, keep 'layout_width' & 'layout_height' the same.
|layout_width||100dp (recommended min value)||Width of icon|
|layout_height||100dp (recommended min value)||Height of the icon|
|isStatic||True / False||Boolean Value to enable on-touch animation|
|strokeColor||HEX||Customize the color of the icon|
|bgColor||HEX||Customize the background colour|
Pull Requests are welcomed. We are looking forward for your suggestions on new icons & animations.
