ChatKit for Android

ChatKit is a library designed to simplify the development of UI for such a trivial task as chat. It has flexible possibilities for styling, customizing and data management.


  • Ready-to-use already styled solution for quick implementation;
  • Default and custom media messages;
  • Fully customizable layouts - setting styles out of the box (use your own colors, text appearances, drawables, selectors and sizes) or even create your own custom markup or/and holders for unique behaviour;
  • List of dialogs, including tete-a-tete and group chats, markers for unread messages and last user message view;
  • List of messages (incoming and outcoming) with history pagination and already calculated dates headers;
  • Different avatars with no specific realization of image loading - you can use any library you want;
  • Selection mode for interacting with messages;
  • Links highlighting
  • Easy dates formatting;
  • Your own models for dialogs and messages - there is no converting needed;
  • Ready to use message input view;
  • Custom animations (according to RecyclerView usage).
