Design

By providing a custom LayoutManager to RecyclerView, VirtualLayout is able to layout child views with different style at single view elegantly. The custom LayoutManager manages a serial of layoutHelpers where each one implements the specific layout logic for a certain position range items. By the way, implementing your custom layoutHelper and provding it to the framework is also supported.

Main Feature

  • Provide default common layout implementation, decouple the View and Layout. Default layout implementations are:
    • LinearLayoutHelper: provide linear layout as LinearLayoutManager.
    • GridLayoutHelper: provide grid layout as GridLayoutManager, but with more feature.
    • FixLayoutHelper: fix the view at certain position of screen, the view does not scroll with whole page.
    • ScrollFixLayoutHelper: fix the view at certain position of screen, but the view does not show until it scrolls to it position.
    • FloatLayoutHelper: float the view on top of page, user can drag and drop it.
    • ColumnLayoutHelper: perform like GridLayoutHelper but layouts all child views in one line.
    • SingleLayoutHelper: contain only one child view.
    • OnePlusNLayoutHelper: a custom layout with one child view layouted at left and the others at right, you may not need this.
    • StickyLayoutHelper: scroll the view when its position is inside the screen, but fix the view at start or end when its position is outside the screen.
    • StaggeredGridLayoutHelper: provide waterfall like layout as StaggeredGridLayoutManager.
  • LayoutHelpers provided by default can be generally divided into two categories. One is non-fix LayoutHelper such as LinearLayoutHelper, GridLayoutHelper, etc which means the children of these LayoutHelper will be layouted in the flow of parent container and will be scrolled with the container scrolling. While the other is fix LayoutHelper which means the child of these is always fix in parent container.
