DividerItemDecoration

Simple RecyclerView ItemDecoration
Based on fatfingers implementation.

Added feature

Support for reverseLayout in LinearLayoutManager:

public LinearLayoutManager(Context context, int orientation, boolean reverseLayout)

Features

  • Can use any drawable as divider
  • Divider visible also at the beginning and end of the item's list (disable by deffault)
  • Only works with LinearLayoutManager

Example

Default android divider

mCategoryRecyclerView.addItemDecoration(
        new DividerItemDecoration(getActivity(), null));

Custom divider with first also end and last dividers

mCategoryRecyclerView.addItemDecoration(
        new DividerItemDecoration(getActivity().getDrawable(R.drawable.ic_launcher),
                true, true));
