A Jetpack-Compose library providing useful credit card utilities such as card type recognition and TextField ViewTransformations!

What’s included??

  • ?️Automatic card type recognition that supports the following cards:

    • Visa
    • Mastercard
    • Maestro
    • American Express
    • Dinners Club
    • JCB
    • Discover
  • ?Simple VisualTransformation subclasses for the following use-cases:

    • Card expiration date
    • Card number (with custom separators)

Adding the library to your project✨

Add the following to your root build.gradle file:

allprojects {
	repositories {
		maven { url '' }

Next, add the dependency below to your module‘s build.gradle file:

dependencies {
  implementation 'com.github.SteliosPapamichail:CreditCardHelper:v1.0.0'



You can use the ExpirationDateMask or CardNumberMask VisualTransformations, by simply passing the respective composable to the visualTransfomration field of your TextField. For example:

fun Expiration() {
    var expiration by remember { mutableStateOf("") }
        value = expiration,
        visualTransformation = ExpirationDateMask(),
        onValueChange = {
            if (it.length <= 4) expiration = it
        }, label = { Text("Expiration") }

The above code will produce something like the following:

The CardNumberMask transform will use the " " blank separator by default. If you would like to use a custom one, you can simply pass it as a parameter to the composable like so:

fun CardNumber() {
    var number by remember { mutableStateOf("") }
        value = number,
        visualTransformation = CardNumberMask("-"),
        onValueChange = {
            if (it.length <= 16) number = it
        }, label = { Text("Card number") }

This will produce the following:

Card Types?

You can use the provided getCardTypeFromNumber(number: String) function which accepts a string containing the input card number, and returning one of the recognized types or UKNOWN if no match was found. You can use it for building out Topup/Payment forms, card-selection or card-creation forms, and much more. Here’s an example from the sample project:
