Android Extra WebView Library

We have come up with yet another simple but filled with a new feature, the Java library for our android developers. The Extra WebView Library is developed to change add new features and themes inside the webView instead of it being just a regular view of the website.

The android library contains beautiful new themes and also is compatible with API Level 17. Libraries are an important part in android development as it reduces a lot of burden from developers. This webView library has been built to make webView implementation easy and flexible.

Before discussing the usage let us give a quick overview of the java library(WebView):

  • Compatible with API Level 17

  • RTL support

  • Multi theme support

  • Full-screen feature

  • Easy sharing of URL

  • Search in page support

  • Contains Bookmark and Vote icon using EventBus Library

The demo for this is available, just follow the link below:



You can also go through the sample photos provided below as a reference on themes and buttons available in this easy webView Library. 

From the sample, you can get a view of 6 different themes available in this Extra webView library. Different themes are made available for use as per individual’s preference. The samples also provide a glimpse of the new features available such as Vote and Bookmark buttons and a way for users to take a full-screen experience.


### full screen mode


The Extra webView library is easy to be implemented in your application. Just follow these simple steps:

1. Provide the gradle dependency

For this, add it to your root build. gradle at the end of repositories:

allprojects {
 repositories {
  maven { url "https://jitpack.io" }

Then, simply add this dependency: 

dependencies {
 implementation 'com.github.bkhezry:ExtraWebView:1.2.۵'

2. Add your code

The next step is to add ItemActivity to AndroidManifest.xml

            android:screenOrientation="portrait" />
DataModel dataModel = new DataModelBuilder()
new ExtraWebViewCreator()
After following the steps, new activity starts with WebViw ui
