  • Play GIF One time or Repeatedly.

  • Get notified for each action that you perform

Actions Listners
start() onGifStarted()
stop() onGifStopped()
pause() onGifPaused()
resume() onGifResumed()
-- onGifComplete()

NOTE : onGifComplete() will be notified if GIF is in PLAY_ONCE mode.

  • It is just a View so you can add this view to any layout in your app such as
    • Activity
    • Fragment
    • Style Sheets
    • Dialogs
      etc...

Usage :

Add Gradle Dependency in your build.gradle file

compile 'com.whiteelephant:gifplayer:1.2.0'

or Maven

<dependency>
<groupId>com.whiteelephant</groupId>
<artifactId>gifplayer</artifactId>
<version>1.0.0</version>
<type>pom</type>
 </dependency>
Add the GIF view to your layout
<com.whiteelephant.gifplayer.GifView
   android:id="@+id/gif"
   android:layout_width="wrap_content"
   android:layout_height="wrap_content"
   app:animationSpeed="1"
   app:playMode="PLAY_REPEAT"
   app:src="@raw/car" />

Code :

Once your GifView is ready call start() method to start Gif to play

 GifView gifView = (GifView) findViewById(R.id.gif);
 gifView.start();
Custom xml attributes:
  • animationSpeed : Speed of GIF. Programmatically increase/decrease the Speed of GIF. The default speed is 1.
  • playMode : We can play the GIF only once or repeat. You can set the PLAY_REPEAT or PLAY_ONCE.
  • src : Pass the GIF
Set attributes Programmatically:
  • setAnimationSpeed(float speed)
  • setPlayMode(int playMode)
  • setGIFResource(@RawRes gif)
Add the listeners:

We seriously don't want you to implement unnecessary listeners, just add those which really you use.

addOnStartListener(GifView.GifStartListener onStart)
addOnStopListener(GifView.GifStartListener onStop)
addOnResumeListener(GifView.GifResumeListener onResume)
addOnPauseListener(GifView.GifPauseListener onPause)
addOnCompletionListener(GifView.GifCompletionListener onCompletion)
