I wonder if placing horizontal content inside a Card (like an image list in the Reply material spp) is breaking material design guidance? Reply material app


You can reference the "Contained collections" section of the Material Design component guidelines for "Cards" to find your answer:


"Card collections can be placed within a container, and be scrolled within it." (the example is horizontally scrollable).

  • Let me disagree. According to "Contained collections" section: The container for a collection should not be a card. Also, an image in the horizontal list is not a card. This is just an image – Sergey B. Feb 17 '20 at 6:32

    My answer was to the question of whether Material Design supports horizontal content within cards. As you've read, it does. In other words, placing horizontal content within a card is acceptable. There are actually two questions being asked here. First, is horizontal content within cards supported in the Material Design guidelines (which is what I answered). The other question is if this particular app has adhered to the guidelines (which is the question you've answered). – user133773 Feb 17 '20 at 15:58
