Easily Display Information with Simple GridLayout
Sometimes, the most menial of tasks can bring a larger project to a screeching halt. And for some app developers, this means creating visually appealing grid layouts efficiently. Thankfully, XDA Senior Member EatHeat has created and shared a library that allows you to create a simple and customizable grid within your app.
In addition to sharing the library itself, EatHeat shares how to get started. This begins with adding this library to your package and using a few lines of simple syntax. EatHeat has also shared an example app that makes use of the library.
If you’ve wanted to easily and efficiently display a grid in your app, head over to EatHeat’s library thread. Naturally, this is also open source. To get the code, head over to Eatheat’s Github.
