how can I help you today?
i would like to know if you think is safe to start a project in kotlin that show statistics with the python matplotlib
I found out several platform on the internet,and my raw quick win choice is
I am uncertain if I understand your question – are you looking to embed Python code in your Kotlin-based Android app?
chaquopy would be my choice
I have no idea how to do that, sorry
well was thinking about
by the way are you fluent with compose
I saw you already help on SO
I would not describe myself as "fluent", and unfortunately I have not been able to do a lot of Compose work in several months
yes I saw was looking for some content from you, but not big harm the documentation from google is made in a good way, they are taking really seriously this transition
I am looking for a way to import my existing xml Styles
and found out two libraries
do you know which one is more battle tested?
let me check the libraries before:P
that has some not pleasant limitations…
on the other hand, if you are using Material Components for Android, that may be your only option
https://github.com/google/accompanist/tree/main/appcompat-theme is for AppCompat-based themes
and it has similar limitations: https://google.github.io/accompanist/appcompat-theme/#limitations
the other is accompanist indeed just found
i go for the first one then, I look for interoperability since i do consulting reusability and SOLID are an option:)
do you think that there will be some hedge cases that people will still use Adapters with compose? I guess not, will be useful only to study legacy code, right?
I can see some developers electing to replace XML layout-based rows with compsable-based rows in a
RecyclerView as part of a migration to Compose UI
i see, as a transition
but, eventually, I expect most everybody to replace
LazyColumn() or something similar
make perfectly sense, in one year making RV will be like boiling the ocean/reinventing the wheel
compose is just clean, and the first real step to a serious Kotlin multiplatform future
Anyway Mark, my excuses if in this period i have been quite demanding, but was not a joke to land to a more senior job, fortunately got good feedback on the first project! I will be much more quiet from now on
you subscribed, so you are entitled to whatever help I can provide in these chats
thanks but you are not a real business service, but a community hero, and do not want to vampirize
anyway have a pleasant evening, i switch to downton abbey the tv series, that luckily my partner find too much intellectual.
OK, have a nice evening!
I go to enjoy the saturday nerd fever
thanks have a nice afternoon
