Add Side Menu Animation Android Library

Side menu animation is useful way to present option to the user and its easier than ever to add one to an app in Android. But if you use cool animation with that they will magnify your application in way of users.

So today we’ll discuss about such cool and amazing side menu animation library for Android.

Implementing Side Menu animation library

First of all you have to upload animation submodule with git submodule update --initcommand

Or you can add gradle dependency with command :

dependencies {
compile ‘com.github.yalantis:Side-Menu.Android:1.0.1’
}

and command:

repositories {

maven {

url “https://jitpack.io"

}

}

dependencies {

compile ‘com.github.ozodrukh:CircularReveal:(latest-release)@aar’

}

Recommended articles:

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 Revealanimated view. And to add all items to menu you have to add all of them into LinearLayout

<android.support.v4.widget.DrawerLayout

xmlns:android=”http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/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=”http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/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

android:id=”@+id/content_frame”

android:layout_width=”match_parent”

android:layout_height=”match_parent”

android:orientation=”vertical”/>

<android.support.v7.widget.Toolbar

android:id=”@+id/toolbar”

android:layout_height=”wrap_content”

android:layout_width=”match_parent”

android:minHeight=”?attr/actionBarSize”

android:background=”?attr/colorPrimary”/>

</io.codetail.widget.RevealFrameLayout>

<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 →

</LinearLayout>

</ScrollView>

</android.support.v4.widget.DrawerLayout>

ViewAnimator viewAnimator = new ViewAnimator<>(ActionBarActivity.this,

new ArrayList<Resourceble>(),

(LinearLayout) findViewById(R.id.left_drawer),

contentFragment, drawerLayout);

//to open menu you have to override ActionBarDrawerToggle method

@Override

public void onDrawerSlide(View drawerView, float slideOffset) {

super.onDrawerSlide(drawerView, slideOffset);

if (slideOffset > 0.6 && viewAnimator.getLinearLayout().getChildCount() == 0)

viewAnimator.showMenuContent();

}

public void onDrawerClosed(View view) {

super.onDrawerClosed(view);

viewAnimator.getLinearLayout().removeAllViews();

viewAnimator.getLinearLayout().invalidate();

}

All menu items should implement Resourceble interface to get menu item name and drawable res And all fragments should implement ScreenShotable to get screenshot of a fragment.
