Carbon

Material Design implementation for Android 4.0 and newer. This is not the exact copy of the Lollipop's API and features. It's a custom implementation of the most useful things as shown in the design specification. Carbon tries to:

  • make things easier (specify cornerRadius='dp' instead of creating an xml and/or a ViewOutlineProvider)
  • make it all work and look the same on all APIs (like CheckBox's left padding)
  • really backport features (don't use gradients for shadows!)
  • fix Android's everlasting bugs (FrameLayout ignores child's padding when no gravity is set)
