I built the library for one of my most challenging clients to date - the developer community. By making the library open source any developer could pull up the source code. After releasing their Material Design specifications and Android L preview source code, it was clear that Google left out one of the most popular newly introduced notification paradigms - the Snackbar.
After realizing that the Android team had no intention of implementing the Snackbar pattern, I took it upon myself to build a library so developers can easily implement the new Snackbar pattern in their apps. As the SnackBar library was open source, I decided to host it on Github, the most popular website for projects like this.
After I created the repository I received a lot of support from the community in both likes and contributions. As a result, SnackBar is now very stable and being used in a number of applications.
@MrEngineer13 you can add Plume to the list of happy SnackBar users :)
