RxJava Replaying Share

ReplayingShare is an RxJava 3 transformer which combines replay(1), publish(), and refCount() operators.

Unlike traditional combinations of these operators, ReplayingShare caches the last emitted value from the upstream observable or flowable only when one or more downstream subscribers are connected. This allows expensive upstream sources to be shut down when no one is listening while also replaying the last value seen by any subscriber to new ones.

replayingShare() replay(1).refCount() publish().refCount() replay(1).autoConnect(1)
Disconnects from upstream when there are no subscribers
Replays the latest value to new subscribers when other subscribers are active
Replays the latest value to new subscribers when no other subscribers are active

Usage

Apply with compose to an upstream Observable or Flowable and cache the resulting instance for all new subscribers.

@Singleton class Chart {
  private final Observable<Bitmap> chart;

  @Inject Chart(Observable<List<Data>> data) {
    chart = data.debounce(1, SECONDS)
        .map(list -> bigExpensiveRenderChartToBitmapFunction(list))
        .compose(ReplayingShare.instance());
  }

  Observable<Bitmap> data() {
    return chart;
  }
}

Kotlin users can use the operator via an extension function.

@Singleton class Chart
@Inject constructor(data: Observable<List<Data>>) {
  val chart: Observable<Bitmap> = data.debounce(1, SECONDS)
      .map(list -> bigExpensiveRenderChartToBitmapFunction(list))
      .replayingShare()
}

Note: This operator is designed for composition with infinite or extremely long-lived streams. Any terminal event will clear the cached value.
