List of All Libraries & Components

All the libraries and components used throughout the app are as follows:

General purpose

  • Dagger - A fast dependency injector for Android and Java
  • Data Binding - A support library that allows you to bind UI components in your layouts to data sources in your app using a declarative format rather than programmatically
  • Architecture Components
    • LiveData - Used to build data objects that notify views when the underlying database changes
    • ViewModel - Used to store and manage UI-related data in a lifecycle conscious way; allows data to survive configuration changes such as screen rotations
  • AndroidUtilCode - A library that encapsulates the functions that are commonly used in Android development
  • RxJava - A library for composing asynchronous and event-based programs by using observable sequences
  • RxAndroid - Android specific bindings for RxJava 2
  • Retrofit - Type-safe HTTP client for Android and Java by Square, Inc.
  • MMKV - An efficient, small mobile key-value storage framework developed by WeChat
  • StateSaver - A utility library for Android to save objects in a Bundle without any boilerplate

User-interface related

Testing related

  • Barista - A library built on top of Espresso, that provides a simple and discoverable API, removing most of the boilerplate and verbosity of common Espresso tasks
  • Mockito - Most popular mocking framework for Java
