Google is expanding Android Jetpack with deployment tools

jetpack

Η Google announced on Tuesday an extension of Android Jetpack, a software asset collection Android, which helps developers to follow best practices, relieves them from writing the boilerplate code and simplifies complex tasks. The extension of the Toolkit includes six new Jetpack libraries. Google also brings five libraries to test.

The expansion, along with a number of other announcements on Android development, came to Google I / O, the annual developer conference held in Google's home town of Mountain View, California. Thomas Kurian, the new CEO of Google Cloud, paved the way for growth.

"There has never been a better time to become a developer," said Kurian, announcing new user interfaces such as voice and camera, cloud computing, and Google Assistant AI functionality.

Jetpack, announced last year, is already being used by more than 80% of the top 1,000 Android apps. Some of the new Jetpack libraries include CameraX, an open source library that will facilitate the development of the camera on a series of unique Android devices. Another new library is Jetpack Compose, which combines a programming model with Kotlin to simplify UI development.

Google also announced ways to encourage Android developers to use the fast-growing Kotlin programming language. More than 50% of Android Developer Professionals are already using it, just two years after Google announced that Kotlin was a supported language from Android.

Many new APIs and Jetpack features will be offered to Kotlin first, Google said. In addition, Google is working with Jetbrains and Kotlin Foundation to provide more tools, documents, training programs and events for developers to use, including a new global event series called Kotlin / Everywhere.

Google also announced it is releasing Android Studio 3.5 in beta. It includes better IDE memory management for large projects, lower typing delay, CPU usage optimizations, layout processor improvements, simulator improvements and manufacturing changes, among other updates.
