Android action bar like twitter sample

Yet another action bar implementation can be found here (shameless plug), It’s implemented as a library project so there’s no need to copy-paste resources.

Implementation wise it’s built as a widget that extends a RelativeLayout with it own layout for the actions and the bar. This makes it possible to add it to layouts with it own xml snippet.


And then later on refer to it in a activity to add actions.

ActionBar actionBar = (ActionBar) findViewById(;
actionBar.setHomeAction(new IntentAction(this, HomeActivity.createIntent(this), R.drawable.ic_title_home_default));
actionBar.addAction(new IntentAction(this, createShareIntent(), R.drawable.ic_title_share_default));
actionBar.addAction(new ToastAction());
