So far, it’s
snake_case
for file names and resource value references. For View ids,
camelCase
is much more useful if you use DataBinding generation as it is easier to search.

Good enough. Depending on the complexity, I sometimes prefer to prefix the feature name first so all of my resources are grouped together and much more visible at first glance.

Should be
snake_case
for file names. Color ids is normally
snake_case
as well but its much more lenient since some prefer
camelCase
One thing to note is that you can split to multiple color value files e.g.
colors.xml
,
shadows.xml
,
materials.xml
as you can easily transfer those auxiliary colors between projects.
