You might wonder at some time in a project how you could reorder a list efficiently ?
Using a Drag & Drop list is one of them ! It’s a « fun » and smart way to achieve this goal.
You might also use a « select position in list » popup or some up/down arrows but honestly it’s not ergonomic
especially when you scroll looooong lists.
KayNote Drag & Drop list inside a view pager indicator
To achieve this feature, we’ll use a very good library developed by Carl Bauer and its contributors.
To figure out what could be done with this lib, you might want to check out :
There are 2 approaches:
- using standard Android library build process
- using standard Maven library build system
I’m fine with both, if you aren’t used to build maven projects ( and especially Android one),
you might prefer to go for the first one ! However if you’re going to manage a serious project for your company… you should take a look at it 🙂
Edit : The new version should be up. Hopefully, I’ll fix some annoying bugs soon !
As explained my last news… I managed to make a sweet view pager indicator using drap & drop lists !
As a reminder, you can find the current version here :
Kaynote on Google Play
Now here is the new result :
It’s not coming in the upcoming hours since I have some memory leaks & bugs & translation & legacy compatibility to do !
Maybe even some layout tweaking ^^
So you might have to wait the weekend !
If you’re already interested in how some of this is done, you might want to comment since I’m going to do a tech article on how to use
https://github.com/bauerca/drag-sort-listview with https://github.com/JakeWharton/Android-ViewPagerIndicator !
Also some interesting stuff as saving & refreshing the views but also the widget !!!
Indeed you will notice that sliding the view pager will trigger a refresh on the widget so that you can have different note lists !
I’m still thinking what I’ll add to ComboTouch !
BTW I’m now living in Belgium for 7 months !
That’s my first post for 2013 but probably not the last 🙂
As expected January was busy ! No time to code some funny stuffs !
However I’m currently « having fun » with View Pagers and Drag & Drop lists for my app Kaynote. Hopefully, I’ll release a new version this week … and a tutorial on how it’s done as well 😉 !
I’ll probably do some minor update for ComboTouch as well !
I’m supposed to be in « holidays » but I’m learning iOS quite hard to build an app for la minut’rit 🙂 ! Objective C isn’t my preferred language but I have to deal with it ( although I don’t think I’ll port ComboTouch on Iphone … ! ).
Meanwhile I finished my GIS project and a video is available here :
The project is open-source as GPLv3.
Edit : The upcoming update should be for the 31/12/12 🙂 ( or the 32 😉 )
I’m working on a decent tutorial ! Hopefully, you might understand how multipliers and god mode works. ^^’
Hi guys !
I don’t post quite often these last days ( ok weeks… fine… lets say months 🙂 ) ! I don’t update ComboTouch as often as I want too ^^’
As usual, my engineering school still eats most of my time ! But la minut’rit is also hanging on my skills 😉
Finally, I ended second ex-eaquo a « little » challenge called « Galileo Masters » in Aquitaine as I purposed my real-time transport application project.
( So I earned a year in a company incubator so that I can have help to work on my project )
All of this being said, I’ll might dig into some few bugs remaining in ComboTouch and delivers some news cool bonuses !!!
I might also add some challenges ! I’ll really like to add a random matchmaking online mode with a ladder … but I would be soooooo long to implement that I think I won’t have time to make anything decent at this moment ! ( yeah I have so many projects on the way that I can’t afford to spend days on this … yeah literally. Maybe if someone want to do it or has some INSANE library/API/Framework, I might give it a try 🙂 )
Finally, I wish you a Merry Christmas guys !
I hope you have fun with your gifts 😉
I personally enjoy my brand new MacBook Pro Retina ! ( yep, now, no excuses not to program on Iphone/Ipad :p )
1 month to go before I start my last internship… in Belgium 🙂
I’ll work for Bizzdev there.

Don’t miss to drop a com’ if you want something special for this epic year ! ( or just like the game 😉 )
That was a first time ! Yep, I just had a « hackathon » 🙂
I took part into the event called « BeMyApp », it’s a kind of event where you are expected to build from scratch a prototype of a mobile application during a weekend !
That one was on OpenData & Tourism so I decided to join with 2 mates of my engineering school to try !
We met a « project leader » which had an idea and was looking for developers & designers so we made a group of 4.
We didn’t managed to get some designers or even marketers … quite a empty spot that didn’t help us to win the challenge !
Indeed we didn’t earned any prize but I think the idea wasn’t really in par with what the jury expected and winner teams were composed up to 11 persons ( quite unfair for us :p )
However there were cool and well-designed apps that won so I don’t feel like jury was
totally corrupted :p
You might want to check them out thanks to #BMAOpenTourisme hashtag !
But that doesn’t really matters. Here is the app idea :
The mobile application gathers all your geotagged photos on your smartphone then through a hierarchical agglomerative clustering algorithm we select some photos that looks like to represent a decisive spot your trip and then we identify the spot through OpenData on locations. Finally we create a « postcard » that is rendered by the smartphone and sent to a server like Instagram.
We called it : TripInPic
Here an example :
That was « fun » to develop ! I slept 9h over between Friday and Monday 😉
If you want to test this event : I suggest to give it a try ! It’s a nice event 🙂
If the organisation team is as cool as the french one, you’ll definitly have a good weekend !
Finally I had some time to
rest update ComboTouch !
So I managed to fix some bugs I spotted through Google Analytics & Google Developer Console ( In fact most crashs aren’t reported so the new Analytics was a great help ! )
I decided that was a good opportunity to a new mode ! I felt like this one was lacking :
Regular players will find out that it is a 1×1 colors cooperation gameplay ! Good luck if you try it 😀
On the next update, I’ll revamp the bonus menu into a UI like Challenge one !
In fact it might be quite boring to use for you… but it is also a pain for me to add bonus into the current one !
I don’t know if people are still expecting the online version but I don’t think I’ll have time to develop it if there isn’t a good API to use it.
Wait and see ! 🙂
