At the moment it will only connect to LastFm and retrieve some music bands. It will let navigate to the artist detail. This is what you´ll get:
The purpose of the project is to show a complex (at least in architecture) project entirely written using Kotlin. This example also supports the articles written in antonioleiva.com related to Kotlin for Android:
- Kotlin for Android (I): Introduction
- Kotlin for Android (II): Create a new project
- Kotlin for Android (III): Extension functions and default values
- Kotlin for Android (IV): Custom Views and Android Extensions
This sample project is still in development, and could easily break or have some messy code. However, any idea or suggestion to improve it will be welcomed. Feel free to open an issue if you think something could be improved.

Kotlin plugin for Android Studio is also required.
