Have ever done any work with C# winforms? it is like that, but not so much. just use butterknife, and all will make sense.
@busuu Honestly, yes, it looks like everything is made to work like a charm, but I thought the transition would have been easier, it's just a side project :)
here some useful libraries:
thank me later, Android is beautiful
@lazyDev I know Google is my friend, but what are these for? For the time being I'm just using Firebase + some coding for getting things done!
AndroidAnnotations is a good library to use too.
Makes life a helluva lot simpler
Man Dont stress your self download android arsenal or browse on it through google , full of good libraries
Arjun8504y@lazyDev I would like to add Dagger2 (dependency injection) and leak canary (to detect memory leaks) to your list
Arjun8504yMahn I just quit Android development and joined game development😥 missing it alot now
Huuugo25734yI feel you. I feel you. Android development is hell compared to actually modern frameworks.
- No CDI out of the box and ~5 libraries for that.
- Either old-school code or no backward comp.
- Hell lot of code for most simple things.
- No proper testing frameworks.
- Test-Running takes at least 20s.
- XML everywhere!!! Even for color definitions. Rly?!
- Debugging tools from 10y ago.
Does anyone of you know some good library for audio management? Something like the equivalent of Glide/Picasso for images/video
