Pull To Refresh

Pull To Refresh Views for Android Renewal! v3.2

This project is a fork of Chris Banes' Android-PullToRefresh project. The project provides flexibility in customization in addition to adding brand new features listed below.

  • New! AAR package support

  • Google-like pull to refresh animation support (in Android 3.x or 4.x)

    NOTE: This style is now supported in Android Support Library. I recommend you to use the support library instead of this library, unless you are already using and want to change the style from old style to it.

  • Easy layout customization - no need to include the library's source code directly into your project.

  • Easily Customizable loading layouts, labels, and icons.

  • Ability to customize and add multiple indicator layouts.

  • Configurable friction and smooth scroll duration.

  • This fork project is not being deprecated. Please send issues or pull requests to me, and I will provide you with feedbacks.

  • Are you are using Pull To Refresh v2.1.x? You'd better MIGRATE to v3.2 now!



This project aims to provide a reusable Pull to Refresh widget for Android. It was originally based on Johan Nilsson's library (mainly for graphics, strings and animations), but these have been replaced since.

Included Features

  • Supports both Pulling Down from the top, and Pulling Up from the bottom (or even both).
  • Animated Scrolling for all devices.
  • Over Scroll supports for devices on Android v2.3+.
  • Currently works with:
    • ListView
    • ExpandableListView
    • GridView
    • WebView
    • ScrollView
    • HorizontalScrollView
    • ViewPager
  • Integrated End of List Listener for use of detecting when the user has scrolled to the bottom.
  • Maven Central Support.
  • Indicators to show the user when a Pull-to-Refresh is available.
  • Support for ListFragment!
  • Lots of Customization options!

Sample Application

Sample application is being provided as APK file (the source is in the repository):

Download Here!


To begin using the library, please see the Quick Start Guide.


Our Customization page contains detailed information on how to change the behaviour and look of the View.

Pull Up to Refresh

By default this library is set to Pull Down to Refresh, but if you want to allow Pull Up to Refresh then you can do so. You can even set the View to enable both Pull Up and Pull Down using the 'both' setting. See the Customization page for more information on how to set this.

Please see the new Changelog page to see what's recently changed.

Pull Requests

I will gladly accept pull requests for fixes and feature enhancements but please do them in the dev branch. The master branch is for the latest stable code, dev is where I try things out before releasing them as stable. Any pull requests that are against master from now on will be closed asking for you to do another pull against dev.
