TechHub

TechHub is a sample educational app that provides courses for people who want to learn new skills in mostly tech-related areas.

The goal of this project is to practice & demonstrate the use of some Modern Android Development Practices, Material Design Theming & Android Animations.

🕹 Animations 🕹

This app uses shared element container transforms to create a visible connection between two UI elements and represent parent-child relationships between fragment transitions.

🛠 Architecture 🛠

The application complies with the following recommended best practices for building robust, high-quality apps.

  • Single Activity Architecture: One single activity and several fragments.
  • MVVM: MVVM based architecture, using a local database as a Single Source of Truth.
  • SOLID: Software design principles intended to make object-oriented software more understandable, flexible and maintainable.
  • Android Architecture Components: libraries part of Android Jetpack to give a robust design, testable and maintainable to modern applications.

🦾 Tech Stack 🦾

This project takes advantage of many popular libraries and tools in the Android ecosystem:

  • ROOM: Persistence Library that provides an abstraction layer over SQLLite to allow for a more robust database access.
  • Lifecycle: Perform actions in response to a change in the lifecycle status of another component.
  • ViewModel: Designed to manage and store UI related data in a lifecycle conscious way.
  • LiveData: A lifecycle-aware observable data holder class, that respects the lifecycle of other app components.
  • Navigation: Implement navigation and transactions between fragments.
  • Kotlin Coroutines: Managing background threads with simplified code and reducing needs for callbacks.
  • Kotlin Flow: Cold asynchronous data stream that sequentially emits values
  • Kotlin Serialization: Converts data used by an application to a format that can be transferred over a network or stored in a database or a file.
  • Dagger Hilt: A fully static, compile-time dependency injection framework for both Java and Android.
  • Retrofit: A type-safe HTTP client.
  • Glide: An image loading library.
  • ViewBinding: Allows you to more easily write code that interacts with views.
  • Material 3: The latest version of Material Design, introduced in Android 12.
  • Material Motion: A set of transition patterns that can help users understand and navigate an app.
