Demo app

To run the demo project, clone the repository and run it via Android Studio.

(OR)

Download the latest demo apk from releases.

Usage

Set up the dependency

  1. Add the JitPack repository to your root build.gradle at the end of repositories:
allprojects {
	repositories {
		...
		maven { url 'https://jitpack.io' }
	}
}
  1. Add the BlobBackgroundLayout dependency in the build.gradle:
implementation 'com.github.Chrisvin:BlobBackgroundLayout:1.1'

Use a BlobLayout as the base container in your activity/fragments.

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<com.jem.blobbackground.layout.BlobConstraintLayout
    xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android"
    xmlns:app="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res-auto"
    xmlns:tools="http://schemas.android.com/tools"
    android:id="@+id/blobLayout"
    android:layout_width="match_parent"
    android:layout_height="match_parent"
    tools:context=".MainActivity">

    <!--  Fill with your views, just like you would in a normal ConstraintLayout  -->
    
</com.jem.blobbackground.layout.BlobConstraintLayout>

<!--  Also supports BlobFrameLayout & BlobLinearLayout  -->

Add blobs in the BlobLayout using addBlob()

The individual blobs can be customized in Blob.Configuration.

blobLayout.addBlob(
    Blob.Configuration(
        // Position of the Blobs center point
        blobCenterPosition = newBlobCenterPosition,  // Optional, Default = PointF(0f, 0f)
        
        // The number of curve points in the blob
        pointCount = newPointCount, // Optional, Default = 16
        
        // The radius of the blob
        radius = newRadius, // Optional, Default = 750f
        
        // The maximum offset from the radius of the blob
        maxOffset = newMaxOffset,   // Optional, Default = 100f
        
        // Should the blob animate/change shape over time
        shouldAnimateShape = newShouldAnimateShape, // Optional, Default = true
        
        // Time taken for blob to fully change from one shape to another
        shapeAnimationDuration = newShapeAnimationDuration, // Optional, Default = 2000L
        
        // The interpolator used for shape animation
        shapeAnimationInterpolator = newShapeAnimationInterpolator, // Optional, Default = LinearInterpolator()
        
        // The paint used to draw the blob, can be used to set color, draw only outline, etc.
        paint = newPaint   
        /* Optional, Default = Paint().apply {
               isAntiAlias = true
               style = Paint.Style.FILL
               color = Color.RED
           }
        */
    )
)

And you're done with your awesome blobby UI, easy-peasy. ^_^

Additional functionalities

Get blob count

val blobCount: Int = blobLayout.getBlobCount()

Recreate all blobs with new shapes

blobLayout.recreateBlobs()

Recreate blob at index with new shape

blobLayout.recreateBlob(index)

Remove all blobs

blobLayout.removeBlobs()

Remove blob at index

blobLayout.removeBlob(index)

Get all blob configurations

val blobConfigs: Array<Blob.Configuration> = blobLayout.getBlobConfigurations()

Get configuration for blob at index

val blobConfig: Blob.Configuration = blobLayout.getBlobConfiguration(index)

Update all blob configurations

blobLayout.updateBlobConfigurations(blobConfigs)

Update configuration for blob at index
