Setting up a Material Components for Android theme

Setting up a Material Components for Android theme

Migrating to Material Components for Android from the Design Support Library is a necessary part of the broader move to AndroidX. The core widgets that form part of an Android app now mostly fall under the package and bring with them a variety of new theme/style attributes.

This presentation covers setting up a Material Components theme for Android with the help of a “playground” visual aid. This will include new global theme attributes to customize the three Material Theming subsystems – color, typography and shape – as well as per-widget styles. It will also demonstrate how you can use Material Design tools – Color, Icons, Gallery and the Theme Editor Sketch Plugin – to choose a Material Theme that will make your new/existing app really stand out.

This was presented at Droidcon Boston 2019:
