Sample & .aar file


depends on Ozodrukh's animation util for CircularReveal animation for 2.3+ version


First of all you have to upload animation submodule with

git submodule update --init

Or you can add gradle dependency with command :
    dependencies {
        implementation 'com.github.yalantis:Side-Menu.Android:1.0.2'
and command:
```groovy repositories { maven { url "" } } dependencies { implementation 'com.github.ozodrukh:CircularReveal:(latest-release)@aar' }
To add gradle dependency you need to open  build.gradle (in your app folder,not in a project folder) then copy and add the dependencies there in the dependencies block;

for CircularReveal module

After you have to create special overlay layout to show in behind current Circular Reveal animated view. And to add all items to menu you have to add all of them into LinearLayout

```xml < xmlns:android="" android:id="@+id/drawer_layout" android:layout_width="match_parent" android:layout_height="match_parent">

<io.codetail.widget.revealframelayout android:id="@+id/conteiner_frame" xmlns:android="" android:layout_width="match_parent" android:layout_height="match_parent">
    <linearlayout android:id="@+id/content_overlay" android:layout_width="match_parent" android:layout_height="match_parent" android:orientation="vertical"></linearlayout>
    <linearlayout android:id="@+id/content_frame" android:layout_width="match_parent" android:layout_height="match_parent" android:orientation="vertical"></linearlayout>

    < android:id="@+id/toolbar" android:layout_height="wrap_content" android:layout_width="match_parent" android:minheight="?attr/actionBarSize" android:background="?attr/colorPrimary"></>


<scrollview android:id="@+id/scrollView" android:scrollbarthumbvertical="@android:color/transparent" android:layout_width="80dp" android:layout_height="match_parent" android:layout_gravity="start|bottom">

    <linearlayout android:id="@+id/left_drawer" android:orientation="vertical" android:layout_width="80dp" android:layout_height="wrap_content" android:divider="@android:color/transparent" android:dividerheight="0dp" android:background="@android:color/transparent">
        <!-- Layout of Drawer -->


    ViewAnimator viewAnimator = new ViewAnimator<>(ActionBarActivity.this,
                                    new ArrayList(),
                                    (LinearLayout) findViewById(, 
                                    contentFragment, drawerLayout);
    //to open menu you have to override ActionBarDrawerToggle method 
            public void onDrawerSlide(View drawerView, float slideOffset) {
                super.onDrawerSlide(drawerView, slideOffset);
                if (slideOffset > 0.6 && viewAnimator.getLinearLayout().getChildCount() == 0)
            public void onDrawerClosed(View view) {

All menu items should implement

interface to get menu item name and drawable res And all fragments should implement
to get screenshot of a fragment

You can customize icons that u place in the menu,or add mor items. Simply by changing the list you parse to view animator .For example:

     private List list = new ArrayList<>(); \\ the list of menu items

SlideMenuItem menuItem0 = new SlideMenuItem(ContentFragment.CLOSE, R.drawable.icn_close);
    SlideMenuItem menuItem = new SlideMenuItem(ContentFragment.BUILDING, R.drawable.icn_1);  \\first parameter is the id of menu item,the second is the icon resouce
    SlideMenuItem menuItem2 = new SlideMenuItem(ContentFragment.BOOK, R.drawable.icn_2);

    viewAnimator = new ViewAnimator&lt;&gt;(this, list, contentFragment, drawerLayout, this);

Let us know!

We’d be really happy if you sent us links to your projects where you use our component. Just send an email to [email protected] And do let us know if you have any questions or suggestion regarding the animation.

P.S. We’re going to publish more awesomeness wrapped in code and a tutorial on how to make UI for Android (iOS) better than better. Stay tuned!
