Developing Themes with Style

Description

With Nick Butcher

The Android Theming system is powerful but easy to misuse. Proper use of it can make themes and styles easier to maintain, make branding updates less scary and make it straightforward to support dark modes.

This talk will start with a crash course in themes and styles. We’ll cover the platform, AppCompat and MaterialComponents functionality that you should know about and build upon. We’ll look at how to support both light and dark modes without going crazy. We’ll show how and when to create your own theme attributes, how to tint drawables, how to theme sub-sections of your screen and how to isolate your theme dependant resources to make them maintainable.
