Episode 41: RecyclerView


  1. I wonder if anyoen reads these comments. I would guess no, based on the amount of spam. Anyhow; do you know if there are any plan to implement a recycler view with multiple sections, and a header for each setion? This is very hard to do by hand because the headers are indexed and mapping a position to its item is very hard without getting off-by-one errors.

  2. We do see the comments eventually (and clear out the spam occasionally). I'll have Yigit have a look at your question.

  3. Chet, What app would you advise to listen your podcasts?

  4. @Andrey: There are a lot to choose from, but I've been using Pocket Casts for a while and it's really good. Nice design and good features like faster playback, audio boost (good for non-music audio like podcasts), and just a generally good UI.

  5. @epsz we are not planning to add header footer support since they can be implemented with an AdapterWrapper.
    We do have plans to introduce MergeAdapter to make it easier to combine multiple adapter but we don't have an ETA for it yet.

    1. I guess a MergeAdapter would take multiple Adapters and compose them into a single one? That sounds like an excellent solution to my use case. Hope to hear more about this.
