A supermoon lunar eclipse is a rare event that has only occurred five times since 1900. Later this month, on September 27, this phenomenon will be visible in the night sky. Mark your calendars and be sure to check it out: https://youtu.be/vKAw_wrIr5s

Wonderful!
 
This French extreme sports photographer took on a very different side project featuring adorable Lego Minifigs out exploring the big wide world.
When photographer "Samsofy" isn't shooting extreme sports, he's letting Lego minifigs loose into the world and capturing their exploits.

Android lets you mash apps together. When you do, cool things start to happen.

Anyone who wants to try out Googles solution to the 64k method limit can have a look at https://android.googlesource.com/toolchain/jack/

This seems to be the solution that they will launch in an upcoming update of the Android toolchain.

Haven't tried it out myself yet.

Percentage Based Dimensions and Margins with the Percent Support Library
Pro-tip by +Joanna Smith

There are a lot of options to help you position your Views just right. But adding a LinearLayout to your beautiful RelativeLayout just to gain access to layout_weight for that perfect positioning is ridiculous. And we hear you on that. Which is why Android introduced the new Percent Support Library (https://goo.gl/XTOD5G). Its PercentFrameLayout and PercentRelativeLayout provide an easy way to specify View dimensions and margins in terms of a percentage of the overall size.

That means if you want a view to take up exactly 50% of the available width and height, you’d use a layout such as
<android.support.percent.PercentRelativeLayout>
 <ImageView
  android:id=”@+id/centered_image”
  android:layout_gravity=”center”
  app:layout_widthPercent="50%"
  app:layout_heightPercent="50%" />
 <TextView
  android:id=”@+id/caption”
  android:layout_width="wrap_content"
  android:layout_height="wrap_content"
  android:layout_below=”@id/centered_image”
  android:layout_gravity=”center_horizontal”
  app:layout_marginStartPercent=”25%”
  app:layout_marginEndPercent=”25%” />
</android.support.percent.PercentRelativeLayout>

Note that we use layout_marginStartPercent/EndPercent to set a margin based on a percentage of the total width.

Fun fact: if the percentage you set is more of a guideline than hard limit, you can also set layout_width/height=”wrap_content” in addition to layout_widthPercent/heightPercent and Views larger than the allowed percentage value will instead be resized using wrap_content rules.

So check out the Percent library today and use this efficient layout to #BuildBetterApps
