Gradle

Add below codes to your root build.gradle file (not your module build.gradle file).

allprojects {
    repositories {
        jcenter()
    }
}

And add a dependency code to your module's build.gradle file.

dependencies {
    implementation "com.github.skydoves:androidveil:1.0.6"
}

Usage

First, add following XML namespace inside your XML layout file.

xmlns:app="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res-auto"

VeilLayout in layout

<com.skydoves.androidveil.VeilLayout
      android:id="@+id/veilLayout"
      android:layout_width="match_parent"
      android:layout_height="match_parent"
      app:veilLayout_veiled="true" // shows veils initially
      app:veilLayout_shimmerEnable="true" // sets shimmer enable
      app:veilLayout_baseColor="@android:color/holo_green_dark" // sets shimmer base color
      app:veilLayout_highlightColor="@android:color/holo_green_light" // sets shimmer highlight color
      app:veilLayout_baseAlpha="0.6" // sets shimmer base alpha value
      app:veilLayout_highlightAlpha="1.0" // sets shimmer highlight alpha value
      app:veilLayout_dropOff="0.5"// sets how quickly the shimmer`s gradient drops-off
      app:veilLayout_radius="6dp" // sets a corner radius of the whole veiled items >

      <TextView
         android:layout_width="match_parent"
         android:layout_height="wrap_content"
         android:text="And now here is my secret, a very simple secret"
         android:textColor="@android:color/white"
         android:textSize="22sp"/>

      <!-- Skip -->    

</com.skydoves.androidveil.VeilLayout>

Veil and UnVeil

We can implement veiled skeletons using below methods.

veilLayout.veil()
veilLayout.unVeil()

Implement veils using layout resource

We can implement veiled skeletons using the layout resource.

veilLayout.layout = R.layout.layout_item_test

VeilRecyclerFrameView

VeilRecyclerFrameView implements veiled skeletons for RecyclerView with the shimmer effect.

VeilRecyclerFrameView in layout

<com.skydoves.androidveil.VeilRecyclerFrameView
        android:id="@+id/veilRecyclerView"
        android:layout_width="match_parent"
        android:layout_height="match_parent"
        app:veilFrame_layout="@layout/item_profile" // sets to make veiling target layout
        app:veilFrame_veiled="true" // shows veils initially
        app:veilFrame_shimmerEnable="true" // sets shimmer enable
        app:veilFrame_baseColor="@android:color/holo_green_dark" // sets shimmer base color
        app:veilFrame_highlightColor="@android:color/holo_green_light" // sets shimmer highlight color
        app:veilFrame_baseAlpha="0.6" // sets shimmer base alpha value
        app:veilFrame_highlightAlpha="1.0" // sets shimmer highlight alpha value
        app:veilFrame_radius="8dp" // sets a corner radius of the whole veiled items />

And we should attach our own adapter and LayoutManager.

veilRecyclerView.setAdapter(adapter) // sets your own adapter
veilRecyclerView.setLayoutManager(LinearLayoutManager(this)) // sets LayoutManager
veilRecyclerView.addVeiledItems(15) // add veiled 15 items

Veil and UnVeil

We can implement veiled skeletons using below methods.

veilRecyclerView.veil() // shows veil skeletons
veilRecyclerView.unVeil() // disappear veils and shows your own recyclerView

RecyclerView

We can access our Recyclerview and veiledRecyclerView using the below methods.

veilRecyclerView.getRecyclerView() // veilRecyclerView.getRecyclerView().setHasFixedSize(true)
veilRecyclerView.getVeiledRecyclerView()

Shimmer

This library using shimmer-android by Facebook.
Here are the detail shimmer-instruction about shimmer or you can reference below examples.

create using Builder

This is how to create Shimmer's instance using Shimmer.Builder class.

val shimmer = Shimmer.ColorHighlightBuilder()
      .setBaseColor(ContextCompat.getColor(context, R.color.shimmerBase0))
      .setHighlightColor(ContextCompat.getColor(context, R.color.shimmerHighlight0))
      .setBaseAlpha(1f)
      .setHighlightAlpha(1f)
      .build()

veilLayout.shimmer = shimmer // sets shimmer to VeilLayout
veilRecyclerView.shimmer = shimmer // sets shimmer to VeilRecyclerView

create using kotlin dsl

This is how to create Shimmer's instance using kotlin dsl.

val shimmer_alpha = alphaShimmer {
      setBaseAlpha(1.0f)
      setHighlightAlpha(0.5f)
}
val shimmer_color = colorShimmer {
      setBaseAlpha(1.0f)
      setHighlightAlpha(0.5f)
      setBaseColor(ContextCompat.getColor(context, R.color.colorPrimary))
      setHighlightColor(ContextCompat.getColor(context, R.color.colorPrimaryDark))
}
