Android Question Material design without Appcompat?

I'm developing for Android > 5 so I don't need to use the appcompat library. Unfortunately, all the examples on this forum to use a toolbar with a menu and a button use ACTOOLBAR, which needs appcompat. Is there an example of a toolbar which follows the material design and does not need the appcompat library?

I have not tested it but shouldn't the StdActionbar library still work?

For a "Button" you should use Activity.AddMenuItem3() and set the AddToActionBar parameter to true.

There is even my StdActionBarHelper library which will add most features of ACToolbar like ActionMode etc. if you need it.

Edit: You can just simply use Activity.AddMenuItem3() and you should get the standard ActionBar.
