MotionLayout & RecyclerView
Principal Android Engineer
One of the first and easiest things we do as Android Developers is rendering a list of items. Commonly, one of the hardest things we do next is trying to animate items in that list in a variety of ways.
Ever since Hoford & Roard showcased the possibility of animating a RecyclerView with MotionLayout a lot of people have wondered how to actually implement it. I'll be showcasing how my work has evolved in the past year in this specific vein, the issues I encountered, and new routes forward.
