This sample shows how to style text on Android using spans, in Kotlin, using Android KTX.
Parse some hardcoded text and do the following:
R.string.display_text. This project is not meant to fully cover the markdown capabilities and has several limitations; for example, quotes do not support nesting other elements.
The text is parsed in the
Parser.parse method and the spans are created in the
MarkdownBuilder.markdownToSpans method. To see how to apply one or multiple spans on a string, check out
MarkdownBuilder.buildElement. For examples of creating custom spans, see
Text parsing is tested with JUnit tests in
ParserTest. Span building is tested via Android JUnit tests, in
