think it would probably be easier
i dont think it would be easy to mix two complex libraries into one

Have had a quick check of this material lib here... The generated R class is 60kb (that´s huge for ONE library)
The lib has 48 java files with 744kb total.
A lot of work to wrap this library.

This library is amazing. Maybe even @Erel can make a wrapper to her. I think that will add huge value to the B4A.

This library is really very interesting.

Unfortunately I'm currently working on another big private project so I don't have the time to write a wrapper for it.

Wrapping such a huge library is much work.

Thank you for your answer @corwin42 !!

i already started with it... With a few objects i have my problems but some i already wrapped.



I would not release the wrapper as YOU are Mr Material! :D

But with your acknowledge i would publish the lib if i´m ready with the things i CAN do.
I will share the java-source for my Wrapper with YOU too in this case. So, maybe, if you want to add the missing Objects later in future then, you can do (if you have the time).

Nice work @DonManfred.
Which one are you wrapping?
If you have time to send an apk, i just want to check the ripple on the buttons and how that looks on pre-L devices. (I've seen issues with atleast 3 implementations i tried to wrap).
Eventually im going to give up on appcompat and supporting previous versions, its too much effort and too much pain, and the results are not consistent.(for e.g. cardview, ripples, transitions, etc)

I don't have the exclusive right to release material libraries. :)
I'm always glad to see new useful stuff for B4A and you are doing an extremely good job.

I know and i already released few material wrappers..

But for this complex lib i would create kind of rivalry and the last thing i want is to bother you when i release this library. I REALLY APPRECIATED YOUR Tutorial-Series!

The button i already have wrapped. will send you an B4A Example and the actual Library-wrapper (XML/JAR) this evening. Dont need to say that is is not yet finished and maybe have bugs.
