Beautiful circular reveal animation on Android

Hello everyone! This is my first post on Medium.

Today I want to share with you how to create a beautiful User Interface using a Circular Reveal Animation.

To perform this animation I used createCircularReveal from ViewAnimationUtils available on API 21

Animator createCircularReveal (View view, 
int centerX,
int centerY,
float startRadius,
float endRadius)
Returns an Animator which can animate a clipping circle.

view is the view we want to animate.
centerX and centerY are the starting points of the animation, relative to a view.
and endRadius are the radius of the animated circle.

So, if we want to show an animated circle starting from bottom right, we set x and y of the main layout and the startRadius at 0.
Thanks to Pythagoras we could calculate the exact point of the endRadius, using the hypotenuse function.
