Let’s explore some Material Design UI components and use Butter Knife to access this components easily

Some weeks ago I was having a conversation with some designers atR/GA. In this talk we discussed about a specific topic in Material Design related to making all the apps becoming almost visually equals between them.

My friend Fabricio Teixeira wrote a very good post about that, covering his thoughts and comparing apps. In that time, Google had not yet released any supporting library to help developers to develop apps using Material Design.

But after Google I/O 2015 we can now use Android Design Support Libraryto bring material design to life in a easier way.

In this article we’ll see how to implement two of these UI components:Floating Action Button and Snackbar.

t the moment I believe that there is no any Android Developer who doesn’t know about Material Design anymore since it officially becomes a design philosophy by shaking the world of design in passed year.

Surprisingly that it was not easy to implement Material Design in android application because those Material Design’s UI Component like Floating Action Button (FAB) wasn’t available in Android pre-Lollipop. Only choice we had was to use 3rd party library published by indie android developer out there.

Here comes a good news. Last week during Google I/O 2015 event, Google announced the most excited support library within year named Android Design Support Library providing a bunch of useful Material Design UI Components in a single library. Let me use this chance to describe to you one by one how to use each of them through this article.

Please check the video below as the final of result of this tutorial.
