The Android UI framework for building experiences for Office and Office 365.

Office UI Fabric for Android is a native library that provides the Office UI experience for the Android platform. It contains information about colors and typography, as well as custom controls and customizations for platform controls, all from the official Fluent design language used in Office and Office 365 products.

Contents

Colors and typography

Office UI Fabric for Android provides colors and typography based on the Fluent design language.

Some of the controls available include:

  • AvatarView
  • CalendarView
  • DateTimePickerDialog
  • PeoplePickerView
  • PersonaChipView
  • PersonaListView
  • PersonaView
  • Snackbar
  • TemplateView

Install and use Office UI Fabric

Requirements

API 19+

1. Using Gradle

  • Our library is published through JCenter, so make sure the jcenter() repository has been added to your project level build.gradle file (which usually is automatic).

  • Inside the dependency block in your build.gradle, add this line for the OfficeUIFabric library:

    dependencies {
      ...
      implementation 'com.microsoft.uifabric:OfficeUIFabric:$version'
      ... 
    }
    
  • Make sure you replace $version with the latest version of OfficeUIFabric.

2. Using Maven

  • Add the OfficeUIFabric library as a dependency:

    <dependency>
    <groupId>com.microsoft.uifabric</groupId>
    <artifactId>OfficeUIFabric</artifactId>
    <version>${version}</version>
    </dependency>
    
  • Make sure you replace ${version} with the latest version of OfficeUIFabric.

3. Manual installation

  • Download the latest changes from the Office UI Fabric Android repository.

  • Follow these instructions to build and output an AAR file from the OfficeUIFabric module, import the module to your project, and add it as a dependency. If you're having trouble generating an AAR file for the module, make sure you select it and run "Make Module 'OfficeUIFabric'" from the Build menu.

  • Some components have dependencies you will need to manually add to your app if you are using this library as an AAR artifact because these dependencies do not get included in the output.

    • If using PeoplePickerView, include this dependency in your gradle file:
      implementation 'com.splitwise:tokenautocomplete:2.0.8'
      
    • If using CalendarView or DateTimePickerDialog, include this dependency in your gradle file:
      implementation 'com.jakewharton.threetenabp:threetenabp:1.1.0'
      
    • Double check that these library versions correspond to the latest versions we implement in the OfficeUIFabric build.gradle.

Import and use the library

In code:

import com.microsoft.officeuifabric.persona.AvatarView

In XML:

<com.microsoft.officeuifabric.persona.AvatarView
    android:layout_width="wrap_content"
    android:layout_height="wrap_content"
    app:name="Mona Kane" />
