To use pie charts in an Android project, include the following dependencies:

dependencies {

    // Pie Charts dependency:
    implementation "$android_charts_version"

    // Material Design styles for Pie Charts: 
    implementation "$android_charts_version"

See also Material Design styles for pie charts.


To add a pie chart to a layout, use a PieChart view:

    android:layout_height="match_parent" />

Never use wrap_content to determine the size of a PieChart. This value will set the size to 0dp. Instead, you may use layout_constraintHeight_percent attribute of a ConstraintLayout.

Data Set Adapters

Provided Adapters

There are data set adapters provided for basic types:

  • IntListPieChartAdapter
  • LongListPieChartAdapter
  • FloatListPieChartAdapter
  • DoubleListPieChartAdapter


val adapter = FloatListPieChartAdapter(requireContext())
pieChart.adapter = adapter = listOf(0.1f, 0.2f, 0.3f)

Custom Adapters

It is also possible to define a custom data set adapter for any data type, e.g.:

data class MyData(
    val name: String,
    val amount: Int

A data set adapter can be defined as:

class CustomPieChartAdapter : PieChart.DataSetAdapter() {

    var data: List<MyData> = emptyList()
        set(value) {
            field = value

    override val size: Int get() = data.size
    override val sum: Float get() = data.sumBy { it.amount }.toFloat()
    override fun get(index: Int): Float = data[index].amount.toFloat()
    override fun getLabel(index: Int): String = data[index].name
