infinity

Tiny library with ability to provide support for infinite paginated scrolling in RecyclerView. It is able to show loading & try again layout at the bottom of the list. Android Arsenal

Usage

Minimal implementation

  1. Implement you own RecyclerView adapter which extends InfinityAdapter<Model, ViewHolder>
    public class SampleUserAdapter extends InfinityAdapter<User, ViewHolder> {
    @Override
    public ViewHolder onCreateContentViewHolder(ViewGroup parent, int viewType) {
    LayoutInflater inflater = LayoutInflater.from(parent.getContext());
    View view = inflater.inflate(R.layout.list_item_user, parent, false);
    return new ViewHolder(view);
    }
    @Override
    public void onBindContentViewHolder(ViewHolder holder, int position) {
    ((TextView) holder.itemView).setText(getContentItem(position).toString());
    }
    public class ViewHolder extends RecyclerView.ViewHolder {
    public ViewHolder(View itemView) {
    super(itemView);
    }
    }
    }
  2. Create instance of InfinityFiller<Model> class. It serves as a paginated data provider to your adapter.
    InfinityFiller<User> filler = new InfinityFiller<User>() {
    @Override public void onLoad(final int limit, final int offset, final Callback<User> callback) {
    // Async data provider
    DataManager.get().getDataObservable(limit, offset)
    .subscribe(new Action1<List<User>>() {
    @Override public void call(List<User> users) {
    callback.onData(users); // call onData() when data available
    }
    }, new Action1<Throwable>() {
    @Override public void call(Throwable throwable) {
    callback.onError(throwable); // call onError() when error occurs
    }
    });
    }
    };
  3. Assign filler to adapter and start loading
    final SampleUserAdapter adapter = new SampleUserAdapter();
    recyclerView.setAdapter(adapter);
    adapter.setFiller(filler);
    adapter.start();

Handy features

Change error/loading layout at the bottom of the list

Simply override method getFooterLayout() in your adapter and return XML layout resource what contains 2 views with id's @+id/loading and @+id/retry.
  1. footer_layout.xml
    <LinearLayout
    android:layout_width="match_parent"
    android:layout_height="wrap_content">
    <LinearLayout
    android:id="@+id/loading"
    android:layout_width="...">
    <!-- content -->
    </LinearLayout>
    <LinearLayout
    android:id="@+id/retry"
    android:layout_width="...">
    <!-- content -->
    </LinearLayout>
    </LinearLayout>
  2. Adapter class
    	@Override
    public int getFooterLayout() {
    return R.layout.footer_layout;
    }

Event listener

If you want to know about data loading events, you can set event listener via adapter.setEventListener() method.
adapter.setEventListener(new InfinityEventListener() {
@Override public void onPreLoadFirst(boolean pullToRefresh) { }
@Override public void onFirstLoaded(boolean pullToRefresh) { }
@Override public void onFirstUnavailable(Throwable error, boolean pullToRefresh) { }
@Override public void onFirstEmpty(boolean pullToRefresh) { }
@Override public void onPreLoadNext() { }
@Override public void onNextLoaded() { }
@Override public void onNextUnavailable(Throwable error) { }
@Override public void onFinished() { }
});

ViewType support

View types are supported by default. All you need to do is to override getContentItemViewType() method of your adapter class. View type value returned by this method must be in range <0,49>.
public static final int EVEN = 0;
public static final int ODD = 1;
@Override
public int getContentItemViewType(int position) {
return position % 2 == 0 ? EVEN : ODD;
}

Header support

In scenario you want to add header (or headers) at the top of the recycler, implement particular methods in your adapter class.
public static final int HEADER_EVEN = 50;
public static final int HEADER_ODD = 51;
@Override public ViewHolder onCreateHeaderViewHolder(ViewGroup parent, int viewType) {
if (viewType == HEADER_EVEN) {
View view = LayoutInflater.from(parent.getContext()).inflate(R.layout.list_item_header_type_1, parent, false);
return new ViewHolder(view);
} else {
View view = LayoutInflater.from(parent.getContext()).inflate(R.layout.list_item_header_type_2, parent, false);
return new ViewHolder(view);
}
}
@Override public void onBindHeaderViewHolder(RecyclerView.ViewHolder holder, int position) {
// ...
}
@Override public int getHeaderCount() {
return NUM_OF_HEADERS;
}
@Override public int getHeaderItemViewType(int position) {
if (position == 0) {
return HEADER_EVEN;
} else {
return HEADER_ODD;
}
}
There are two limitations:
  • Header view must share ViewHolder with content views. You can solve this problem by base ViewHolder.
  • Header view type values must be in range <50, 100>
