Learn how to create a splash screen in android using these examples.

1. Splash Screen Example

An example showcasing how to properly implement the splash screen like the youtube app - mukeshsolanki/android-splash-screen-example:

Step 1: Dependencies

Our dependencies will be as follows:

dependencies {
  implementation fileTree(dir: 'libs', include: ['*.jar'])
  implementation "org.jetbrains.kotlin:kotlin-stdlib-jdk7:$kotlin_version"
  implementation 'androidx.appcompat:appcompat:1.0.0-beta01'
  implementation 'androidx.core:core-ktx:1.1.0-alpha05'
  implementation 'androidx.constraintlayout:constraintlayout:1.1.3'
}

Step 2: Design Layout

activity_main.xml

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<androidx.constraintlayout.widget.ConstraintLayout xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android"
  xmlns:app="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res-auto"
  xmlns:tools="http://schemas.android.com/tools"
  android:layout_width="match_parent"
  android:layout_height="match_parent"
  android:background="@color/colorActivityBackground"
  tools:context=".MainActivity">

  <TextView
    android:layout_width="wrap_content"
    android:layout_height="wrap_content"
    android:text="Hello World!"
    android:textColor="@android:color/white"
    app:layout_constraintBottom_toBottomOf="parent"
    app:layout_constraintLeft_toLeftOf="parent"
    app:layout_constraintRight_toRightOf="parent"
    app:layout_constraintTop_toTopOf="parent" />

</androidx.constraintlayout.widget.ConstraintLayout>

Step 3: Write Code

Below is our main activity:

MainActivity.kt

package in.madapps.splashscreen

import android.os.Bundle
import androidx.appcompat.app.AppCompatActivity

class MainActivity : AppCompatActivity() {

  override fun onCreate(savedInstanceState: Bundle?) {
    super.onCreate(savedInstanceState)
    //To mimic the black screen when data is being loaded in the activity
    Thread.sleep(2000)
    setContentView(R.layout.activity_main)
  }
}
