License API Build Status Medium Profile

Pokedex is a small demo application based on modern Android application tech-stacks and MVVM architecture.
This project is for focusing especially on the new library Dagger-Hilt of implementing dependency injection.
Also fetching data from the network and integrating persisted data in the database via repository pattern.

Tech stack & Open-source libraries

  • Minimum SDK level 21
  • Kotlin based + Coroutines for asynchronous.
  • Dagger-Hilt (alpha) for dependency injection.
  • JetPack
    • LiveData - notify domain layer data to views.
    • Lifecycle - dispose of observing data when lifecycle state changes.
    • ViewModel - UI related data holder, lifecycle aware.
    • Room Persistence - construct a database using the abstract layer.
  • Architecture
    • MVVM Architecture (View - DataBinding - ViewModel - Model)
    • Repository pattern
  • Retrofit2 & OkHttp3 - construct the REST APIs and paging network data.
  • Sandwich - construct lightweight http API response and handling error responses.
  • Moshi - A modern JSON library for Kotlin and Java.
  • Glide, GlidePalette - loading images.
  • TransformationLayout - implementing transformation motion animations.
  • WhatIf - checking nullable object and empty collections more fluently.
  • Timber - logging.
  • Material-Components - Material design components like ripple animation, cardView.
  • Custom Views
    • Rainbow - An easy way to apply gradations and tinting for Android.
    • AndroidRibbon - A simple way to implement a beautiful ribbon with the shimmering on Android.
    • ProgressView - A polished and flexible ProgressView, fully customizable with animations.


Pokedex is based on MVVM architecture and a repository pattern.


Open API

Pokedex using the PokeAPI for constructing RESTful API.
PokeAPI provides a RESTful API interface to highly detailed objects built from thousands of lines of data related to Pokémon.
