Android RecyclerView Sample (Kotlin)

This application implements a RecyclerView in Kotlin with ListAdapter, onClickListener and Headers. If you are looking for a simpler sample, look at the RecyclerViewSimple sample in the directory.


Sample demonstrating the use of RecyclerView to layout elements with a LinearLayoutManager.

RecyclerView can display large datasets that can be scrolled efficiently by recycling a limited number of views. ListAdapter is used to efficiently compute diffs when items are added/removed from the list. Click listeners can be defined when ViewHolder views are instantiated.
