Glide is a fast and efficient image loading library for Android focused on smooth scrolling. Glide offers an easy-to-use API, a performant and extensible resource decoding pipeline, and automatic resource pooling.
Glide supports fetching, decoding, and displaying video stills, images, and animated GIFs. Glide includes a flexible API that allows developers to plug into almost any network stack. By default, Glide uses a custom HttpUrlConnection based stack, but also includes utility libraries plug into Google’s Volley project or Square’s OkHttp library instead.
