Check out following status.
Preference > Languages & Frameworks > Kotlin Updates

Older versions of the Kotlin plugin may cause build failures. If you still have a trouble after upgrading the plugin, please try using AndroidStudio 3.3 or 3.4 instead.

Development Environment

Multi module project

We separate the modules for each feature.

Unidirectional data flow(Flux-based) Architecture

Unidirectional data flow(Flux-based) Architecture with Kotlin Coroutines and AndroidX Libraries(LiveData, ViewModel, Room) DataBinding, Dagger and AssistedInject, Firebase etc.

Groupie

By using Groupie you can simplify the implementation around RecyclerView.

class SpeakerItem @AssistedInject constructor(
    @Assisted val speaker: Speaker, // Inject by AssistedInject
    val navController: NavController // Inject by Dagger
) : BindableItem<ItemSpeakerBinding>() {
    @AssistedInject.Factory
    interface Factory {
        fun create(
            speaker: Speaker
        ): SpeakerItem
    }

    override fun getLayout(): Int = R.layout.item_speaker

    override fun bind(itemBinding: ItemSpeakerBinding, position: Int) {
        itemBinding.speakerText.text = speaker.name
        ...
    }
}

We use AssistedInject for creating item.

    @Inject lateinit var speakerItemFactory: SpeakerItem.Factory

...
        val speakerItems = session
            .speakers
            .map { speakerItemFactory.create(it) }
        groupAdapter.update(speakerItems)

Activity/Fragment -> Action Creator

image

Fragments just call Action Creator's method.

class SessionPagesFragment : DaggerFragment() {
    @Inject lateinit var announcementActionCreator: AnnouncementActionCreator
    override fun onActivityCreated(savedInstanceState: Bundle?) {
    ...
        announcementActionCreator.load()
    }

Action Creator <-> DB / API and Action Creator -> dispatcher

image

Action Creator fetches data from DB / API with Kotlin Coroutines suspend function. And Action Creator dispatches data loaded action and loading state changed actions.

class AnnouncementActionCreator @Inject constructor(
    override val dispatcher: Dispatcher,
    val firestore: Firestore,
    @PageScope val lifecycle: Lifecycle
) : CoroutineScope by lifecycle.coroutineScope,
    ErrorHandler {

    fun load() = launch {
        try {
            dispatcher.dispatch(Action.AnnouncementLoadingStateChanged(LoadingState.LOADING))
            // fetch announcement by Kotlin Coroutines suspend function
            dispatcher.dispatch(Action.AnnouncementLoaded(firestore.getAnnouncements()))
            dispatcher.dispatch(Action.AnnouncementLoadingStateChanged(LoadingState.LOADED))
        } catch (e: Exception) {
            onError(e)
            dispatcher.dispatch(Action.AnnouncementLoadingStateChanged(LoadingState.INITIALIZED))
        }
    }
}

Actions are just data holder class.

sealed class Action {
...
    class AnnouncementLoadingStateChanged(val loadingState: LoadingState) : Action()
    class AnnouncementLoaded(val announcements: List<Announcement>) : Action()
...
}

Dispatcher -> Store

image

Store subscribe dispatcher's action with Kotlin Coroutines channel and transform it to AndroidX LiveData. This store is a ViewModel. But if the store is used by the whole application(ex: UserStore), you can change the store to a singleton.

class AnnouncementStore @Inject constructor(
    dispatcher: Dispatcher
) : ViewModel() {
    val loadingState: LiveData<LoadingState> = dispatcher
        .subscribe<Action.AnnouncementLoadingStateChanged>()
        .map { it.loadingState }
        .toLiveData(LoadingState.LOADING)
    val announcements: LiveData<List<Announcement>> = dispatcher
        .subscribe<Action.AnnouncementLoaded>()
        .map { it.announcements }
        .toLiveData(listOf())
}

Store -> Activity/Fragment

image

In the fragment, we can observe Store's LiveData. You can display the UI with LiveData.

    override fun onActivityCreated(savedInstanceState: Bundle?) {
...
        announcementStore.loadingState.changed(viewLifecycleOwner) {
            // apply loading state for progress bar
            progressTimeLatch.loading = it == LoadingState.LOADING
        }
        announcementStore.announcements.changed(viewLifecycleOwner) { announcements ->
            // we can show UI with announcements
        }
...
