Leanback Support Library Showcase App for Android TV

This sample app showcases different components that come with Leanback library.

The home screen in this sample app is a BrowseFragment consisting of a set of different cards. Each card represents a component in Leanback.

All the cards in this sample app work except the Settings. Settings for now crashes due to some internal issue, and we are working on resolving that in the next few days.

We will also add a new music example card soon. This will be a new PlaybackOverlayFragment that comes with a set of new features.



If you use Android Studio as recommended, the following dependencies will automatically be installed by Gradle.

  • Android SDK v7 appcompat library
  • Android SDK v17 leanback support library
  • Android SDK v7 recyclerview library
