A RecyclerView.Adapter with a minimalist and convenient Kotlin DSL

Kiel

Kiel is a RecyclerView.Adapter with a minimalist and convenient Kotlin DSL which provides utility on top of Android's normal RecyclerView.Adapter.

Most of time:

  • We found ourselves repeating same boiler plate codes for RecyclerView.Adapter.
  • We have difficulty in handling RecyclerView.Adapter when there are many viewTypes.

But now, Kiel may help us to get rid of these problems.

Usage:

Basic Usage:

 val recyclerViewAdapter = adapterOf<Text> {
                register {
                    type { Text::class.java }
                    layoutResource { R.layout.adapter_message_text_item }
                    viewHolder { ::TextMessageViewHolder }
                    onViewHolderCreated<TextMessageViewHolder>{ vh->
                       //you may handle your on click listener
                       vh.itemView.setOnClickListener {

                       }
                    }
                    onViewHolderBound<Text, TextMessageViewHolder> { vh, _, it ->
                        vh.messageText.text = it.text
                        vh.sentAt.text = it.sentAt
                    }
                }
     }

 recyclerView.adapter = recyclerViewAdapter

Different View Types:

You may register different ViewHolders.

 val recyclerViewAdapter = adapterOf<MessageViewState> {
                register {
                    type { Text::class.java }
                    layoutResource { R.layout.adapter_message_text_item }
                    viewHolder { ::TextMessageViewHolder }
                    onViewHolderBound<Text, TextMessageViewHolder> { vh, _, it ->
                        vh.messageText.text = it.text
                        vh.sentAt.text = it.sentAt
                    }
                }

                register {
                    type { Image::class.java }
                    layoutResource { R.layout.adapter_message_image_item }
                    viewHolder { ::ImageMessageViewHolder }
                    onViewHolderBound<Image, ImageMessageViewHolder> { vh, _, item ->
                        vh.messageText.text = item.text
                        vh.sentAt.text = item.sentAt

                        Glide.with(vh.messageImage)
                            .load(item.imageUrl)
                            .into(vh.messageImage)
                    }
                }
 }


recyclerView.adapter = recyclerViewAdapter

Handling Events:

As ViewHolder instance is accessible in:

  • onViewHolderCreated
  • onViewHolderBound
  • onViewHolderBoundWithPayload

You can handle the events in the same way how you did it before.

 val recyclerViewAdapter = adapterOf<Text> {
                register {
                    type { Text::class.java }
                    layoutResource { R.layout.adapter_message_text_item }
                    viewHolder { ::TextMessageViewHolder }
                    onViewHolderCreated<TextMessageViewHolder>{ vh->
                       vh.itemView.setOnClickListener {

                       }
                       vh.messageText.addTextChangedListener{text ->

                       }
                    }
                    onViewHolderBound<Text, TextMessageViewHolder> { vh, _, it ->
                        vh.messageText.text = it.text
                        vh.sentAt.text = it.sentAt
                    }
                }
 }

recyclerView.adapter = recyclerViewAdapter

DiffUtil:

You may provide your custom DiffUtil.ItemCallback by extending RecyclerDiffUtilCallback with diffUtilCallback:

val recyclerViewAdapter = adapterOf<MessageViewState> {
                diffUtilCallback{ oldItems, newItems-> RecyclerDiffUtilCallback(oldItems,newItems)}
                register {
                    type { Text::class.java }
                    layoutResource { R.layout.adapter_message_text_item }
                    viewHolder { ::TextMessageViewHolder }
                    onViewHolderBound<Text, TextMessageViewHolder> { vh, _, it ->
                        vh.messageText.text = it.text
                        vh.sentAt.text = it.sentAt
                    }
                }
