What is Ticker?

Ticker is a simple Android UI component for displaying scrolling text. Think about how an odometer scrolls when going from one number to the next, that is similar to what Ticker does. The Ticker handles smooth animations between strings and also string resizing (e.g. animate from "9999" to "10000").

You can specify how the animations proceed by defining an array of characters in order. Each character displayed by Ticker is controlled by this array which dictates how to animate from a starting character to a target character. For example, if you just use a basic ASCII character list, when animating from 'A' to 'Z', it will go from 'A' -> 'B' -> ... 'Z'. The character ordering does not wrap around, meaning that to animate from 'Z' to 'A' it will go from 'Z' -> 'Y' -> ... -> 'A'.

Getting started

Add the ticker dependency to your build.gradle.

compile 'com.robinhood.ticker:ticker:1.2.1'


Define the TickerView in XML:

  android:layout_height="wrap_content" />

Then add the character array to specify the animation style:

final TickerView tickerView = findViewById(R.id.tickerView);

That's it! Now you can call setText to display your data.


We currently support a fairly limited subset of customizations at the moment so please let us know what new features / APIs you need exposed for your use-case and we'll consider it for future releases (or of course feel free to fork!).

You can customize the looks and feels of the TickerView via XML:

android:gravity="center" android:textColor="@color/colorPrimary" android:textSize="16sp" app:ticker_animationDuration="1500"

Or Java:

 tickerView.setAnimationInterpolator(new OvershootInterpolator());

For the full list of XML attributes that we support, please refer to the attrs file.


We decided to extend from the base View class and achieve everything by drawing directly onto the canvas. The primary benefit from this is having full flexibility and control over memory allocations and minimize performance impact by using native draw operations. We pre-allocate and pre-compute as much as possible for each transition so that the only thing we need to do in the draw path is perform the actual drawing operations. The performance test UI included in the ticker-sample is a bit over-zealous but animates smoothly with a screen full of tickers.
