Animated Recycler View is a library that allows you to animate a recycler view in your project like Google does it in its Google Play Store. Only the first visible items are animated there and you will see no animation when the recycler view scrolls up.
Reasons to use it
This library solves several problems:
It works stably fast and without jerks.
It doesn’t need to utilize the adapter to animate items when they appear for the first time.
While working on a project, most of time we need animation similar to the one used in the Google Play Store but didn’t find any appropriate library on Internet/ Github/ StackOverflow that could help us with this task.
There are so many ways to make mobile apps ranging from direct platform specific development (using Java and Kotlin for Android, and ObjC and Swift for iOS), there’s React Native from Facebook, Electrode Native from Walmart, the Ionic framework, Unity for certain types of apps, and the flutter.io framework which was just released by Google.
Ever wondered how these libraries and frameworks affect the size of your app? Let’s analyze some apk files for apps written in some of these ways. The apps are very basic, containing just a title at the top and a text at the center of the screen.
This will show, for a bare minimum app what these frameworks need to package along with the apk for it to be able to run.
For this test I created four different versions of the app, one in each of Java, Kotlin, React Native, and Flutter. (Android API 27)
The apks were then published for release type using Android Studio for Java and Kotlin and using the cli for React Native and Flutter.
Default proguard configuration was used.
The apks were analyzed using the Analyze APK feature in Android Studio.
This article looks at many categories of Java defects that Kotlin prevents in addition to null safety. Kotlin showed a surprising impact on productivity.
This article looks at many categories of Java defects that Kotlin prevents in addition to null safety. My first article (5 cool thing about Kotlin) provided a brief introduction to Kotlin and showed a surprising impact on productivity.
It’s important to realize the difference in value in fixing a defect in one class versus preventing an entire category of Java defects from occurring in any class.
Blockchain is a public record of transactions. It’s also distributed, so instead of one person controlling everything, there are thousands of computers around the world connected to a network, and these thousands of computers together come to an agreement on which transactions are valid.
A blockchain, originally block chain,is a continuously growing list of records, called blocks, which are linked and secured using cryptography. Each block typically contains a hash pointer as a link to a previous block, a timestamp and transaction data.
Attempting to explain the advantages and disadvantages of blockchain technology, in it’s current format, for developing solutions.
Over the last 6 months, we’ve been attempting to pull apart blockchain, from concept, to economics. This article is designed to record some of our thoughts about blockchain and why it’s useful, or not. If we have something wrong, inaccurate or out of date, let us know in the comments!

Advanced Kotlin Tips on writing good Kotlin code and using what the language has to offer. There are many benefits of using Kotlin; it is concise, safe and most importantly it is 100% interoperable with Java. It also tries to solve some of the limitations of Java.
Now is a good time to consider Kotlin for your next big feature or project, because Google finally announced it to be a first-class language for writing Android apps in Google I/O 17.
So here are some advanced Kotlin tips to help you start making use of what the language has to offer and writing good Kotlin code.
Implementing lazy loaded and thread-safe singletons in Kotlin is really easy, unlike Java where you would have to rely on the complex double-checked locking pattern. And although Java enum singletons are thread-safe, they are not lazy loaded.
