Kinvey is a high-productivity serverless application development platform that provides developers tools to build robust, multi-channel applications utilizing a cloud backend and front-end SDKs. As a platform, Kinvey provides many solutions to common development needs, such as a data store, data integration, single sign-on integration, and file storage. With Kinvey, developers can focus on building what provides value for their app - the user experience (UX) and business logic of the application. This approach increases developer productivity and aims to enable higher quality apps by leveraging Kinvey's pre-built components.
The Kinvey Android SDK repository represents the package that can be used to develop Android apps on the Kinvey platform. The Kinvey SDK is developed using a mix of Kotlin and Java code, with a gradual transition being made to a completely Kotlin codebase.
The following is a high-level overview of the most important projects in the solution:
java-api-coreThe core of the library. Most of the library functionality is written here. This project contains most of the underlying networking, user management, caching logic. Things that are Android-platform specific are represented as interfaces / abstract classes, and implemented in the
android-liblibrary described below.
android-lib: The wrapper library for Android, built on top of
java-api-core. All the Android-specific implementation is located here, and most of the classes in this library extend from the ones in
Using the SDK
