Introduction


As Android Developers, we all use RecyclerView's. And the process of setting up any RecyclerView is mostly the same.

  1. You build a model for the data
  2. Create a layout for each list item
  3. Build a RecyclerView.Adapter
  4. Initialize the RecyclerView in your activity/fragment


In this blog post I'm going to give you a template you can add to your Android Studio so creating a RecyclerView Adapter can be done in a few clicks.

  1. Open Settings: File > Settings



  2. Select "File and Code Templates":



  3. Create a new template:



  4. Copy the template I made:




  5. Paste the template:



  6. Click "Apply" and "OK":
