Macroid — a Scala GUI DSL for Android

Build Status Codacy Badge Android Arsenal Join the chat at

Macroid is the most badass modular functional user interface creation language for Android, implemented with Scala macros. Some people say it’s also a dead noodle.

Striving to be focused on one thing (GUI), Macroid promotes composability and high-level abstractions.

Prerequisites: Scala 2.10.x or 2.11.x, Android API 9+.

Latest version: 2.0.0-M4 (installation | changelog).

License: MIT.

Commit messages

Macroid’s commit message structure is inspired by the Spray project. The message has the following format:

[=|+|!] [core|viewable|akka|docs|all]: <Actual message>.
  • = means there are no API changes
  • + means added funtionality
  • ! means breaking changes (source or binary)


! core: Receive UI actions in mapUi & co (fix #48)

mapUi, flatMapUi, ... now operate on UI actions, rather than simple thunks.
For example, the new type signature for mapUi is (A ⇒ Ui[B]) ⇒ Future[B].

Following this convention greatly simplifies writing the changelogs.


Although this is not crucial, updating the docs under macroid-docs together with the code changes might save some time in the future, and thus is highly appreciated. It can be done in the same commit.
