Android Jetpack is a set of components, tools and guidance to make great Android apps. They bring
together the existing Support Library and Architecture Components and arrange them into four
- Foundation – Components for core system capabilities, Kotlin extensions and support for
multidex and automated testing.
- Architecture – A collection of libraries that help you design robust, testable, and
maintainable apps. Start with classes for managing your UI component lifecycle and handling data
- Data Binding – Declaratively bind observable data to UI elements.
- Lifecycles – Create a UI that automatically responds to lifecycle events.
- LiveData – Build data objects that notify views when the underlying database changes.
- Navigation – Handle everything needed for in-app navigation.
- Room – Access your app’s SQLite database with in-app objects and compile-time checks.
- ViewModel – Store UI-related data that isn’t destroyed on app rotations. Easily schedule
asynchronous tasks for optimal execution.
- WorkManager – Manage your Android background jobs.
- UI – Details on why and how to use UI Components in your apps – together or separate
- Third party and miscellaneous libraries
