Learn Jetpack Compose By Example
Over the course of the last few years Android development has gone through significant changes in how we structure our apps, the language we use for development, the tooling & libraries that help us speed up our development and the improvements in testing our apps. What had not changed in all these years is the Android UI toolkit. This changes with Jetpack Compose that aims to re-imagine what Android UI development would look like using declarative programming principles. It is heavily influenced by existing web and mobile frameworks such as React, Litho, Vue & Flutter and would be a paradigm shift in Android UI development as we know it.
This repository aims to show the Jetpack Compose way of building common Android UI that we are accustomed to building.
I've also used the examples listed in this repo and given talks at conferences. If video is your preferred medium of learning, you can head to the links below:

To try out this sample app, you need to at least use the latest version of Android Studio. This project has been tested against Android Studio Artic Fox. You can download it here. In general, Jetpack Compose requires you to use the Canary version of Android Studio.
Each example is meant to be self contained and tries to explain all the
concepts that its using with comments. Compose also comes with this
nifty feature that lets you preview each component in the IntelliJ IDE
itself. To do so, go to any of the examples and then click on
the preview button in the top right corner. This is possible if your
@Composable component has a corresponding
@Preview method associated
with it. Look at the examples below for all this to make a bit more
