Parallax

Easy parallax View for Android simulating Apple TV App Icons

Installation

Parallax is available in the JCenter

compile 'com.ablanco.parallax:parallax:{
latest version
}
'

where { latest version } corresponds to published version in JCenter

How does it work?

Parallax works by adding ParallaxView instances to a ParallaxContainer. Every ParallaxView should have LayerView instances as children. To make the parallax effect happens, ParallaxView uses LayerView (that are no other than FrameLayouts with extra functionality) instances and apply X/Y translations to them based on the index they have, where the smalles view index takes the greater parallax effect.

To start using Parallax, make your root view an instance of ParallaxContainer

 <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
  <com.ablanco.parallax.ParallaxContainer xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android"

android:layout_width="match_parent"

android:layout_height="match_parent">

</com.ablanco.parallax.ParallaxContainer>

 

Inside it, add instances of ParallaxView, where you can add instances of LayerView

<com.ablanco.parallax.ParallaxView

android:id="@+id/parallaxView"

android:layout_width="300dp"

android:layout_height="200dp">

 <com.ablanco.parallax.LayerView

 android:layout_width="match_parent"

 android:layout_height="match_parent">

  ...

</com.ablanco.parallax.LayerView>

 <com.ablanco.parallax.LayerView

 android:layout_width="match_parent"

 android:layout_height="match_parent"

 app:useParallaxPadding="false">

  ...

</com.ablanco.parallax.LayerView>

 <com.ablanco.parallax.LayerView

 android:layout_width="match_parent"

 android:layout_height="match_parent">

 ...

</com.ablanco.parallax.LayerView>

 </com.ablanco.parallax.ParallaxView>

 

As ParallaxView uses its LayerView index to apply parallax effect, the first LayerView added will be the farthest View from the user's perspective

Instances of LayerView can be added from code too

  val layerView = LayerView(this)

layerView.addView(layerImage)

parallaxView.addLayer(layerView)
 

Customization

ParallaxView can be customized in varios ways:

  • You can alternate between two touch modes:

PRESSED

Pressed touch mode will apply ParallaxView interaction as if the user were pressing the View, applying depth perspective rotation along user finger movement

LIFTED

Quite the opposite to Pressed mode, ParallaxView will act as if it were sticky into user's finger, just like in Apple TV App Icons

 <com.ablanco.parallax.ParallaxView

android:id="@+id/parallaxView"

android:layout_width="300dp"

android:layout_height="200dp"

app:touchMode="lifted|pressed"/>

Available from code too


  parallaxView.touchMode = ParallaxView.TOUCH_MODE_LIFTED | ParallaxView.TOUCH_MODE_PRESSED
  • You can change the parallax movement distance too, with is by default 5dp. The higher the value, the higher the parallax effect will be
 <com.ablanco.parallax.ParallaxView

android:id="@+id/parallaxView"

android:layout_width="300dp"

android:layout_height="200dp"

app:parallaxMovementDistance="10dp"/>

 

And from code


  parallaxView.setParallaxMovementDistance(dstanceInPixels)
  • Last, but not least, you can change the behavior of the first layer from the user perspective. By default, last layer added will no apply any parallax effect, but you can change this behavior:
 <com.ablanco.parallax.ParallaxView

android:id="@+id/parallaxView"

android:layout_width="300dp"

android:layout_height="200dp"

app:firstLayerAppliesParallax="true|false by default"/>

  parallaxView.firstLayerAppliesParallax(true)

Hey we are not done yet!

LayerView can be customized too by defining if its content will be padded. Because ParallaxView applies translation movements to achieve parallax effect, LayerView instances applies negative margins by default to ensure the Layer border will never be visible. If any of your layers does not need this behaviour you can disable it (think as background images, which usually fills all the content, as Layers that need to have this behavior enabled):

 <com.ablanco.parallax.LayerView

 android:layout_width="match_parent"

 android:layout_height="match_parent"

 app:useParallaxPadding="false|true by default">

 ...

</com.ablanco.parallax.LayerView>

  LayerView(this).useParallaxPadding = false

Now we are done!
