StackLayoutManager 中文说明

Android library that provides A RecyclerView.LayoutManager implementation which provides functionality to show a group of stack view.



StackLayoutManager provides the following advantages:

  • High performance: the bottom layer use the recyclerView recycle mechanism to allow you to display a large number of itemviews without OOM.
  • Flexibility: you can choose which direction the card will slide out, and there are four directions to choose.
  • Hight customization: if you want to implement animation and layout yourself, you can inherit StackAnimation or StackLayout to achieve the desired effect.
  • Easy to use: you can start using it right away. All you need to do is to drop the JAR file into your project and replace LinearLayoutManager object in your code by com.littlemango.stacklayoutmanager.StackLayoutManager

Gradle integration

If you're using Gradle, you can declare this library as a dependency:

dependencies {
    implementation 'com.littlemango:stacklayoutmanager:1.0.5'

Basic usage

The simplest way to use StackLayoutManager is by dropping the library JAR file into your project creating the StackLayoutManager object and pass it back to the RecyclerView object:

StackLayoutManager manager = new StackLayoutManager();


Advanced usage

  1. You can set the orientation of the card to slide out of the screen:
//orientation can be one of ScrollOrientation.BOTTOM_TO_TOP or TOP_TO_BOTTOM or RIGHT_TO_LEFT or LEFT_TO_RIGHT
ScrollOrientation orientation = ScrollOrientation.BOTTOM_TO_TOP

StackLayoutManager manager = new StackLayoutManager(orientation);


  1. You can set the visible item count: ```java //in the construction method StackLayoutManager manager = new StackLayoutManager(ScrollOrientation.BOTTOMTOTOP, 3);

//or in setter method manager.setVisibleItemCount(3); ```

  1. You can change the offset between items:
  1. You can scroll smoothly or immediately to the specified position: ```java //scroll to position with animation recyclerView.smoothScrollToPosition(3);

//scroll to position immediately without animation recyclerView.scrollToPosition(3);

5. You can set the view to turn only one page at a time, like a ViewPager, or you can turn pages continuously:
java manager.setPagerMode(true or false); ```
  1. When in PagerView paging mode, you can set the minimum sliding velocity that triggers the paging effect:

  2. You can add a item changed Listener to StackLayoutManager:

    mStackLayoutManager.setItemChangedListener(new StackLayoutManager.ItemChangedListener() {
    public void onItemChanged(int position) {
        mToast.setText("first visible item position is " + position);;
  3. I use the DefaultAnimation class to provide animation, which is inherited from StackAnimation, and you can inherit both classes to achieve the desired animation effect:

    DefaultAnimation animation = new DefaultAnimation(ScrollOrientation.BOTTOM_TO_TOP, visibleCount);
  4. I use the DefaultLayout class to implement the layout of items, which inherits from StackLayout. You can inherit both classes to achieve the layout effect you want:

    StackLayoutManager manager = new StackLayoutManager(ScrollOrientation.BOTTOM_TO_TOP, 


You can clone or download this project to your computer and install sample apk on your phone to see the effect.
