On the Hootsuite Android team, we recently found ourselves looking for a library that implemented material chips. Unfortunately, most of the libraries that existed were extremely tightly coupled to providing chips for contacts, and we didn’t need any of the contact-related features. All we needed were chips that contained text and an optional icon, and a TextView that could provide suggestions for the user as they were typing. Unable to find an existing solution, we decided to write our own library and open-source it: Welcome to Nachos.
