Guillotine animation

Neat library, that provides a simple way to implement guillotine-styled animation.



For a working implementation, have a look at the app module

  1. Add JitPack repository in your root build.gradle at the end of repositories:

    allprojects {
        repositories {
            maven { url "" }
  2. Add the dependency to your app build.gradle

    dependencies {
        compile 'com.github.Yalantis:GuillotineMenu-Android:1.2'
  3. You need to create a layout for the navigation menu (guillotine.xml in sample app), which will later open and close guillotine-style. The only tricky part here is that the navigation layout should be on top of any other content and will disappear after closing animation ends. That is why content layout (activity.xml in sample app) should also have hamburger icon at the same coordinates as navigation menu has.

  4. After that all you need to do is to build animation by passing navigation layout object, navigation and content layout hamburger objects to GuillotineAnimation.GuillotineBuilder in your onCreate method

    new GuillotineAnimation.GuillotineBuilder(guillotineMenu, guillotineMenu.findViewById(, contentHamburger)

Here setActionBarViewForAnimation method enables bounce effect of Toolbar at the end of the guillotine closing animation.
