Android Rich text Editor (中文说明见这里)

If you are looking for a good rich text editor on Android, DON'T MISS THIS ONE!

It's still in progress now, welcome fork and join me!

I published colorpicker and emojipicker as standalone components so they can be reused in other projects easily.

I didn't stop this project, I am just working on other most important things to myself, I probably could not be able to fix your issues or enchements requests but I will provide my suggest if I could or just check in the fix to master. I will make it more stable and usable and with more features, I have plan but sorry I have no time schedule for now, welcome form and join me

How ARE works

  • Two usage modes

    1. AREditor. EditText (the input area) and Toolbar (the styling tools) are in the same component. I.e.: if you include <com.chinalwb.are.AREditor .../> in layout XML, you'll see the input area and styling tools (Bold / Italic / Alignment / Bullet list / etc..) in your activity.

    2. AREditText + IARE_Toolbar (it's an interface). EditText (the input area) and Toolbar (the styling tools) are standalone component themselves. I.e.: you have the choice to decide whether to show the Toolbar, and where to place it, below or bottom of the AREditText, left or right to the AREditText, or any other alignment because the toolbar itself is a HorizontalScrollView (default implementation is ARE_ToolbarDefault), and also you can decide what toolitem to be added to the toolbar.

  • Inside these two modes:

    1. AREditor: it extends RelativeLayout, it contains two child components: AREditText and ARE_Toolbar.

      1. AREditText extends AppCompatEditText, in its afterTextChanged method of TextWatcher, it calls the applyStyle of IARE_Style.

      2. ARE_Toolbar extends LinearLayout, the tool items inside areIARE_Style instances, each instance contains an ImageView, which is being shown in the toolbar.

    2. AREditText + IARE_Toolbar.

      1. No need to repeat about AREditText

      2. IARE_Toolbar, it is an interface, which defines what a toolbar needs to implement. Such as: addToolbarItem, getToolItems, etc.. Inside are, there is a default implementation: ARE_ToolbarDefault, it extends HorizontalScrollView, and has the implementation of all the methods in the IARE_Toolbar interface.

      3. ARE_ToolbarDefault, it is just a toolbar, i.e.: tool item container, what the component does the real work is IARE_ToolItem, which is another interface defines the behaviors of a tool item should have, like: getView returns a view to be shown in the toolbar, getStyle returns an IARE_Style to response to the text change. Currently there are 19 toolitems implementation:

        1. ARE_ToolItem_Abstract ARE_ToolItem_AlignmentCenter ARE_ToolItem_AlignmentLeft ARE_ToolItem_AlignmentRight ARE_ToolItem_At ARE_ToolItem_Bold ARE_ToolItem_Hr ARE_ToolItem_Image ARE_ToolItem_Italic ARE_ToolItem_Link ARE_ToolItem_ListBullet ARE_ToolItem_ListNumber ARE_ToolItem_Quote ARE_ToolItem_Strikethrough ARE_ToolItem_Subscript ARE_ToolItem_Superscript ARE_ToolItem_Underline ARE_ToolItem_UpdaterDefault ARE_ToolItem_Video

        2. The abve tool items can be added to toolbar by calling: addToolbarItem(IARE_ToolItem toolItem)

        3. If you want to add your own tool item, you just need to implement your IARE_ToolItem, for example, if you want to add a tool item to change font family, then you can define ARE_ToolItem_FontFamily and implements the methods in IARE_ToolItem. You can check out any of the above ToolItems as reference.

        4. Specially if you want to add a new feature like @, such as ##, check out ARE_ToolItem_At.java, which is a demo for tool item without an image at toolbar.

  • All styles are based on Android Spans

Integration

In your gradle.build of app module, add this in the dependencies:

    implementation 'com.github.bumptech.glide:glide:4.3.1'
    implementation 'com.github.chinalwb:are:0.1.2'

or, as are is still not stable enough to handle kinds of issues in different business scenarios, I'd like recommend to import are into your project direclty and add it as a local module dependency.

    implementation project(':are')

Customization & Samples

Documentation for AREditor in layout XML

Name Format Description
expandMode enum FULL (default: Full screen editor) / MIN (min height editor, maxLines = 3)
hideToolbar boolean Whether to hide the toolbar, by default toolbar will be shown. You may want to set it as true when you use MIN expand mode, @feature will still be available but other features won't work because those styles on toolbar has been hidden with toolbar.
toolbarAlignment enum BOTTOM (default: at bottom of AREditor) / TOP (at top of AREditor)

APIs for AREditor in Java

Class Method Params Description
AREditor setExpandMode AREditor.ExpandMode Sets the edit area mode. Possible values are: ExpandMode.FULL (default) / ExpandMode.MIN
AREditor setHideToolbar boolean Sets as true to hide toolbar; sets false will show toolbar
AREditor setToolbarAlignment AREditor.ToolbarAlignment Sets the toolbar position. Possible values are: ToolbarAlignment.BOTTOM (default) / ToolbarAlignment.TOP

Samples for AREditor

XML:

<RelativeLayout xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android"
    xmlns:are="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res-auto"
    android:layout_width="match_parent"
    android:layout_height="match_parent"
    android:background="@android:color/holo_blue_dark"
    >

    <TextView
        android:id="@+id/xView"
        android:layout_above="@+id/areditor"
        android:layout_width="match_parent"
        android:layout_height="match_parent"
        android:layout_marginTop="1dp"
        android:background="@color/colorAccent"
        android:gravity="center"
        android:textSize="50sp"
        android:text="Your ListView may go here"
        />

    <com.chinalwb.are.AREditor
        android:id="@+id/areditor"
        android:layout_width="match_parent"
        android:layout_height="wrap_content"
        android:layout_alignParentBottom="true"
        android:background="@android:color/holo_green_dark"
        are:expandMode="MIN"
        are:hideToolbar="true"
        are:toolbarAlignment="TOP" />

</RelativeLayout>

Java:

AREditor arEditor = this.findViewById(R.id.areditor);
arEditor.setExpandMode(AREditor.ExpandMode.FULL);
arEditor.setHideToolbar(false);
arEditor.setToolbarAlignment(AREditor.ToolbarAlignment.BOTTOM);

==========

AREditText it self is an AppCompatEditText subclass, so anything applies to AppCompatEditText also works for AREditText.

==========

Documentation for ARE_ToolbarDefault

It extends HorizontalScrollView, so anything applies to HorizontalScrollView also works for ARE_ToolbarDefault.
