Load SVGs with Glide

GlideToVectorYou enables you to easily load your remote vector images (only .svg are supported for now) like other image formats.

The library is based on Glide and offers the same functionalities + svg support.

How to use

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

	allprojects {
		repositories {
			maven { url '' }

Add the dependency in your app build.gradle:

	dependencies {
           compile 'com.github.2coffees1team:GlideToVectorYou:v1.0'

There are 3 ways to use this library.

Lazy way

You just have to use a method:

GlideToVectorYou.justLoadImage(activity, IMAGE_URI, targetImageView)

The svg will be automatically downloaded and inserted in your target Image View.

Easy eh?

Normal way

                .withListener(new GlideToVectorYouListener() {
                    public void onLoadFailed() {
                        Toast.makeText(context, "Load failed", Toast.LENGTH_SHORT).show()

                    public void onResourceReady() {
                        Toast.makeText(context, "Image ready", Toast.LENGTH_SHORT).show()
                .setPlaceHolder(placeholderLoading, placeholderError)
                .load(IMAGE_URL, imageview); 

Here you have more methods to customize the behaviour of GlideToVectorYou. You can for example:

  • set a custom listener to respond to events with withListener()
  • show place holders while the image is loading or the loading failed with setPlaceHolder().

Advanced way

If you are a Glide pro, you can ask GlideToVectorYou to give you access to the original Glide's RequestBuilder.

        RequestBuilder<PictureDrawable> requestBuilder = GlideToVectorYou

Here you can use the variable requestBuilder like a normal Glide request. The only difference is that it will still continue to work with SVGs :)

Again, for example, you could apply a custom transition or crop the image:

                .apply(new RequestOptions()
