How to create Endless RecyclerView with multiple Image and Text using Volley and Glide

In this tutorial, I will show you how to create Endless scroll-able list with contains images or text. To display a list RecyclerView is the best option. RecyclerView have option for customization and control behavior of item. I will use Volley and Glide library to fetch image from server. With Volley you can get data from server as JSON, XML, header, image etc. Remember i am using Volley and Glide to show you how to use this two library, you can either use volley only or Glide only. In this tutorial our aim is to create a list which contains image and text inside CardView.Below are the step i will discuss with you.

1) Create Endless RecyclerView with Adapter.
2) Create Two type of CardView- Image and Text
2) Add some Static item into RecyclerView.
3) Add some Dynamic item like image using volley library.
4) Fetch image from server using Glide library.
5) Run App in Real Device using USB Debugging.

Create Endless RecyclerView with Adapter

Create new Project in android studio. Name of my project is volleyrecyclerview. First open App Module Gradle and add dependency for RecyclerView, CardView, Volley and Glide. Add this line in dependency. Then open activity_xml and place RecyclerView and a ProgressBar. Also Add Internet permissin in Androidmanifest.xml file

Now define RecyclerView and Progress bar in class. To show item inside RecyclerView we need ArrayList. The ArrayList can hold item like Text and Image, for that we have to create a Modal that tells Arraylist whether it is Text OR Image. Create new class and write code.

Create Two type of CardView- Image and Text

We have to create two layout, One for image type item and second for text type item in ArrayList. To show material design use CardView. CardView adds shadow and curve in layout.

Add some Static item into RecyclerView

To add static item in Arraylist use arraylist.add method. Because we need endless RecyclerView show we will add onScrollListener in RecyclerView. When user start scrolling a request will send to a URL using Volley that sendback a image path in response. then fetch actual image from the image path using Glide. Below is Complete code of

Create RecyclerVew Adpter

Create class in android project. ArralList item are pass to RecyclerAdapter which is responsible to show. display item to user. Technically i can say Adapter band view and item to activity_main.xml layout. Define text_type.xml and image_type.xml element in RecyclerAdapter.

Create Volley Request controller

Create class in android project. this will respond to volley request and you can take action accordingly.

Add some Dynamic item like image using volley library.

When user scroll to the list onScrollListen start sending request for new data to server.I am sending request to this HTML Page. The HTML page contains only path of the image as So when Volley get this image path as response Volley start fetching image from when new image available it added to RecyclerView so user will see a endless scrolling.

Run App Code

Run app on Real device, you will see a endless scrolling.
