An Android app built with Kotlin, consuming StarWars API to display characters of the popular StarWars Movie. It is built with the MVVM pattern and the latest Jetpack components.
- Kotlin - Kotlin is a programming language that can run on JVM. Google has announced Kotlin as one of its officially supported programming languages in Android Studio; and the Android community is migrating at a pace from Java to Kotlin
- Android KTX - Provide concise, idiomatic Kotlin to Jetpack and Android platform APIs.
- AndroidX - Major improvement to the original Android Support Library, which is no longer maintained.
- Lifecycle - Perform actions in response to a change in the lifecycle status of another component, such as activities and fragments.
- Viewmodel -The ViewModel class is designed to store and manage UI-related data in a lifecycle conscious way
- LiveData - A lifecycle-aware data holder with the observer pattern
- Kotlin Coroutines - A concurrency design pattern that you can use on Android to simplify code that executes asynchronously.
- View Binding - Allows you to bind UI components in your layouts to data sources in your app using a declarative format rather than programmatically.
- Paging 3 library - The Paging library helps you load and display pages of data from a larger dataset from local storage or over network. This approach allows your app to use both network bandwidth and system resources more efficiently.
- Retrofit - Retrofit is a REST Client for Java and Android by Square inc under Apache 2.0 license. Its a simple network library that used for network transactions. By using this library we can seamlessly capture JSON response from web service/web API.
