Android's RecyclerView done Kotlin style

Tags: ,

Chariot’s own Rod Biresch is part of the Ray Wenderlich tutorial team. One of his first tasks was to take the original tutorial from Ray Wenderlich’s site and converted it to Kotlin and updated it for the latest Android tool set.

A RecyclerView can be thought of as a combination of a ListView and a GridView. However, there are extra features that separate your code into maintainable components even as they enforce memory-efficient design patterns.

In this tutorial, you’re going to experience the power of RecyclerView in action and learn:

  • The purpose of a RecyclerView
  • The components that make up a RecyclerView
  • How to change the layout of a RecyclerView
  • How to add some nice animations to your RecyclerView
