FadingActionBar is a library which implements the cool fading action bar effect that can be seen in the new Play Music app.

This library uses the techniques outlined by Cyril Mottier in a popular blog post.

The three most commonly used action bar implementations are supported: stock (API 11+), ActionBarCompat and ActionBarSherlock.



Including in your project

The library is pushed to Maven Central as a AAR, so you just need to add the following dependency to your build.gradle.

dependencies {
    compile 'com.github.manuelpeinado.fadingactionbar:fadingactionbar:3.1.2'

If your project doesn't use the stock action bar, but one of the compatibility implementations, you would use the following:

dependencies {
    // Use the following if your project uses ActionBarCompat
    compile 'com.github.manuelpeinado.fadingactionbar:fadingactionbar-abc:3.1.2'
    // Or the following if your project uses ActionBarSherlock
    compile 'com.github.manuelpeinado.fadingactionbar:fadingactionbar-abs:3.1.2'
