A Jetpack Compose utility library to create flipping Composable views with 2 sides.

Built with ❤︎ by Wajahat Karim and contributors



? Installation

implementation "com.wajahatkarim:flippable:x.y.z"

Please replace x, y and z with the latest version numbers .

Or you can find latest version and changelogs in the releases.

❓ Usage

Add the Flippable composable and define the front and back side composable methods inside. That’s it.

    frontSide = {
        // Composable content for the front side

    backSide = {
        // Composable content for the back side

    flipController = rememberFlipController(),

    // Other optional parameters

? Customization Parameters

If you’d like to discover what Flippable offers, here is an exhaustive description of customizable parameters.

val controller = rememberFlipController()
    frontSide = {
        // Composable content for the front side
    backSide = {
        // Composable content for the back side
    // To manually controll the flipping, you would need an instance of FlippableController. 
    // You can access it using rememberFlipController() method.
    // This provides methods like controller.flip(), controller.flipToFront(), controller.flipToBack() etc.
    flipController = controller,
    // The obvious one - if you have done Jetpack Compose before.
    modifier = Modifier,
    // The duration it takes for the flip transition in Milliseconds. Default is 400
    flipDurationMs = 400,
    // If true, this will flip the view when touched. 
    // If you want to programatically flip the view without touching, use FlippableController.
    flipOnTouch = flipOnTouchEnabled,
    // If false, flipping will be disabled completely. 
    // The flipping will not be triggered with either touch or with controller methods.
    flipEnabled = flipEnabled,
    // The Flippable is contained in a Box, so this tells
    // the alignment to organize both Front and Back side composable.
    contentAlignment = Alignment.TopCenter,
    //If true, the Flippable will automatically flip back after 
    //duration defined in autoFlipDurationMs. By default, this is false..
    autoFlip = false,
    //The duration in Milliseconds after which auto-flip back animation will start. Default is 1 second.
    autoFlipDurationMs = 1000,
    // The animation type of flipping effect. Currently there are 4 animations. 
    // Horizontal Clockwise and Anti-Clockwise, Vertical Clockwise and Anti-Clockwise
    // See animation types section below.
    flipAnimationType = FlipAnimationType.HORIZONTAL_CLOCKWISE,
    // The [GraphicsLayerScope.cameraDistance] for the flip animation. 
    // Sets the distance along the Z axis (orthogonal to the X/Y plane
    // on which layers are drawn) from the camera to this layer.
    cameraDistance = 30.0F,
    // The listener which is triggered when flipping animation is finished.
    onFlippedListener = { currentSide ->
        // This is called when any flip animation is finished. 
        // This gives the current side which is visible now in Flippable.

I encourage you to play around with the sample app to get a better look and feel. It showcases advanced usage with customized parameters.
