Setup:

Gradle Dependency:

material-intro is available on jitpack.io. Add this in your root build.gradle file (not your module build.gradle file):
allprojects {
repositories {
maven { url 'https://jitpack.io' }
}
}
Add this in your module build.gradle file:
android {
...
dataBinding {
enabled = true
}
}
dependencies {
compile 'com.heinrichreimersoftware:material-intro:1.6.2'
}

Requirements:

The activity must extend IntroActivity and have a theme extending @style/Theme.Intro:
public class MainIntroActivity extends IntroActivity{
@Override protected void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState){
super.onCreate(savedInstanceState);
// Add slides, edit configuration...
}
}
<manifest ...>
<application ...>
<activity android:name=".MainIntroActivity"
android:theme="@style/Theme.Intro"/>
</application>
</manifest>
(Unless mentioned otherwise all of the following method calls should go in the activity's onCreate().)

Slides:

material-intro has fluent style builders for both a simple text/image slide, as seen in Google's apps, and for slides featuring a custom Fragment or layout resource. Feel free to submit an issue or pull request if you think any slide types are missing.

Standard slide (SimpleSlide):

Standard slide featuring a title, short description and image like Google's intros.
addSlide(new SimpleSlide.Builder()
.title(R.string.title_1)
.description(R.string.description_1)
.image(R.drawable.image_1)
.background(R.color.background_1)
.backgroundDark(R.color.background_dark_1)
.scrollable(false)
.permission(Manifest.permission.CAMERA)
.build());

Fragment slide (FragmentSlide):

Custom slide containing a Fragment or a layout resource.
addSlide(new FragmentSlide.Builder()
.background(R.color.background_2)
.backgroundDark(R.color.background_dark_2)
.fragment(R.layout.fragment_2, R.style.FragmentTheme)
.build());
(When using FragmentSlide with a Fragment, you should extend SlideFragment to proxy navigation calls to the intro activity.)

Custom slide (Slide):

Base slide. If you want to modify what's shown in your slide this is the way to go.

Customization:

Left ("back") button:

Control left button behavior or hide/show it.
/* Show/hide button */
setButtonBackVisible(true);
/* Use skip button behavior */
setButtonBackFunction(BUTTON_BACK_FUNCTION_SKIP);
/* Use back button behavior */
setButtonBackFunction(BUTTON_BACK_FUNCTION_BACK);

Right ("next") button:

Control right button behavior or hide/show it.
/* Show/hide button */
setButtonNextVisible(true);
/* Use next and finish button behavior */
setButtonNextFunction(BUTTON_NEXT_FUNCTION_NEXT_FINISH);
/* Use next button behavior */
setButtonNextFunction(BUTTON_NEXT_FUNCTION_NEXT);

CTA button:

Change the appearance of the "call to action" button:
/* Show/hide button */
setButtonCtaVisible(getStartedEnabled);
/* Tint button text */
setButtonCtaTintMode(BUTTON_CTA_TINT_MODE_TEXT);
/* Tint button background */
setButtonCtaTintMode(BUTTON_CTA_TINT_MODE_BACKGROUND);
/* Set custom CTA label */
setButtonCtaLabel(R.string.start)
/**/
setButtonCtaClickListener(new View.OnClickListener() {
});

Fullscreen:

Display the intro activity at fullscreen. This hides the status bar.
public class MainIntroActivity extends IntroActivity{
@Override protected void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState){
setFullscreen(true);
super.onCreate(savedInstanceState);
...
}
}
Make sure to call setFullscreen() before calling super.onCreate()

Scroll duration:

Adjust how long a single slide scroll takes.
setPageScrollDuration(500);
(The page scroll duration is dynamically adapted when scrolling more than one position to reflect dynamic durations from the Material design docs. The exact formula for calculating the scroll duration is duration * (distance + sqrt(distance)) / 2.)

Navigation:

Block navigation:

There are three ways to block navigation for a slide:
  1. In a SlideFragment (using a FragmentSlide) by overriding canGoForward()/canGoBackward() methods.
  2. For a SimpleSlide by setting SimpleSlide.Builder#canGoForward(boolean)/SimpleSlide.Builder#canGoBackward(boolean). (If at least one permission is set to the SimpleSlide, navigation is automatically blocked until every permission is granted.)
  3. From your IntroActivity by setting a NavigationPolicy:
    setNavigationPolicy(new NavigationPolicy() {
    @Override public boolean canGoForward(int position) {
    return true;
    }
    @Override public boolean canGoBackward(int position) {
    return false;
    }
    });

Navigate to slides

Navigate through the intro manually using one of the following methods e.g. from a listeners callback. Each of them will respect blocked navigation settings.
/* Scroll to any position */
goToSlide(5);
/* Scroll to the next slide in the intro */
nextSlide();
/* Scroll to the previous slide in the intro */
previousSlide();
/* Scroll to the last slide of the intro */
goToLastSlide();
/* Scroll to the first slide of the intro */
goToFirstSlide();

Autoplay

Automatically scroll through the intro until user interacts with the intro.
/* Start an auto slideshow with 2500ms delay between scrolls and infinite repeats */
autoplay(2500, INFINITE);
/* Start an auto slideshow with default configuration  */
autoplay();
/* Cancel the slideshow */
cancelAutoplay()

Callbacks

If any of the above returns false when a user tries to navigate to a slide, a OnNavigationBlockedListener callback is fired that you can use to display a message. Additionally you can add plain-old ViewPager.OnPageChangeListeners to listen for page scrolls:
addOnNavigationBlockedListener(new OnNavigationBlockedListener() {
@Override public void onNavigationBlocked(int position, int direction) { ... }
});
addOnPageChangeListener(new ViewPager.OnPageChangeListener(){
@Override public void onPageScrolled(int position, float positionOffset, int positionOffsetPixels) { ... }
@Override public void onPageSelected(int position) { ... }
@Override public void onPageScrollStateChanged(int state) { ... }
});

Tips & Tricks:

Activity result:

You can check if the user canceled the intro (by pressing back) or finished it including all slides. Just call up the activity using startActivityForResult(intent, REQUEST_CODE_INTRO); and then listen for the result:
@Override
protected void onActivityResult(int requestCode, int resultCode, Intent data) {
super.onActivityResult(requestCode, resultCode, data);
if (requestCode == REQUEST_CODE_INTRO) {
if (resultCode == RESULT_OK) {
// Finished the intro
} else {
// Cancelled the intro. You can then e.g. finish this activity too.
finish();
}
}
}

Parallax slides:

You can easily acheive a nice looking parallax effect for any slide by using either ParallaxFrameLayout.java, ParallaxLinearLayout.java or ParallaxRelativeLayout.java and defining layout_parallaxFactor for its direct childrens. A higher factor means a stronger parallax effect, 0 means no parallax effect at all.
<com.heinrichreimersoftware.materialintro.view.parallax.ParallaxLinearLayout
android:layout_width="match_parent"
android:layout_height="match_parent"
... >
<TextView
android:layout_width="match_parent"
android:layout_height="wrap_content"
app:layout_parallaxFactor="0"
... />
<ImageView
android:layout_width="match_parent"
android:layout_height="wrap_content"
app:layout_parallaxFactor="1.25"
... />
</com.heinrichreimersoftware.materialintro.view.parallax.ParallaxLinearLayout>
Check the "Canteen"-demo for a layout example.

Splash screens:

If you want to show the intro only at the first app start you can use onActivityResult() to store a shared preference when the user finished the intro. See the demo app for a sample splash screen implementation:
