Simple View injection framework to be used as a tool for learning compile-time Annotation Processing
What is LittleKnife?
LittleKnife is a minimal, functional, oversimplification of a View "injection" framework like ButterKnife.
What is the motivation behind LittleKnife?
I have been using libraries that use Annotations for some time now, and I always felt that it would be nice to actually understand how these libraries used Annotations to, for example, initialize my
Views. I always felt that there was this huge amount of magic that goes one that I really didn't understand, so I started by looking at the
ButterKnife source code and thought it would be nice to share a simplified version of it, so other developers trying to learn Annotation Processing do not feel overwhelmed and lose interest.
