Card Slider components

  1. CardSliderViewPager: Custom ViewPager2 and uses a page transformer to apply carousel effect as shown in GIF.
    • As ViewPager2 is still a final class follow this issue, I added it as part of my package.
  2. CardSliderIndicator: Custom LinearLayout that that contain indicators as children views.
  3. CardSliderAdapter: Abstract class that must be extended and passed to CardSliderViewPager as its adapter.


1- Show preview of pages in left and right (or top and bottom).

2- Can resize (scale) and change opacity of the pages to make focused page larger and more focused in height as shown in GIF (carousel effect).

3- Can make pages auto swiped after specific time.

4- Add indicator and full customize it easily.

5- Infinite indicators like those in the Instagram app.

6- RTL Support.

7- Support vertical orientation.

## Usage 1. Add it to your layout:

    // auto sliding time in seconds
  1. Create your item (page) layout.

  2. Extend CardSliderAdapter ```kotlin class MovieAdapter(private val movies : ArrayList) : CardSliderAdapter() {

    override fun getItemCount() = movies.size

    override fun onCreateViewHolder(parent: ViewGroup, viewType: Int): MovieViewHolder { val view = LayoutInflater.from(parent.context).inflate(R.layout.item_page, parent, false) return MovieViewHolder(view) }

    override fun bindVH(holder: MovieViewHolder, position: Int) { //TODO bind item object with item layout view }

    class MovieViewHolder(view: View) : RecyclerView.ViewHolder(view) }

    or using Java
    java public class MovieAdapter extends CardSliderAdapter {

    private ArrayList movies;

    public MovieAdapter(ArrayList movies){ this.movies = movies; }

    @Override public int getItemCount(){ return movies.getSize(); }

    @Override public MovieViewHolder onCreateViewHolder(ViewGroup parent, int viewType) { View view = LayoutInflater.from(parent.getContext()).inflate(R.layout.item_page, parent, false); return new MovieViewHolder(view); }

    @Override public void bindVH(int position, MovieViewHolder holder) { //TODO bind item object with item layout view }

    class MovieViewHolder extends RecyclerView.ViewHolder {

    public MovieViewHolder(View view){ super(view); } } } ```

  3. Add adapter to CardSliderViewPager ```kotlin val movies = ArrayList().apply{ // add items to arraylist }

findViewById( = MoviesAdapter(movies)
