We don't need to include third parties like Butterknifr Reply February 13, 2020 at 5:04 pm Doesn't it use more RAM or cause unnecessary extra work for views my app doesn't even address? Reply February 13, 2020 at 5:07 pm This looks good 😀 Reply February 13, 2020 at 5:09 pm Please don't use kotlin only show code in java also… Reply February 13, 2020 at 5:17 pm 😱😱😱 Reply February 13, 2020 at 5:21 pm In 2020 year? seriosly? When all the people uses kotlin's synthetics xD Reply February 13, 2020 at 5:24 pm what is the difference between kotlin-extension plugin and view binding? What approach is faster? Reply February 13, 2020 at 5:26 pm What's the advantages vs kotlin's synthetics? Reply February 13, 2020 at 5:28 pm Just spent two days removing ButterKnife from the legacy project. Thanks, not buying something that gives you 2 second optimization, but slows app. Reply February 13, 2020 at 5:33 pm I love the small examples!! Reply February 13, 2020 at 5:41 pm i didn't get it at all… is that a " good bye layout.xml " ?? Reply February 13, 2020 at 5:46 pm ViewBinding and DataBinding are two different things? Reply February 13, 2020 at 5:52 pm What is difference between Data Binding and View Binding? Reply February 13, 2020 at 6:13 pm Wow, it seems helps to replace Kotlin extension. Though it's awesome but still have faced some null view and app got crashed. It hope, this view bind will handle it. 🙂 Reply February 13, 2020 at 6:23 pm Why not just use synthetics? Reply February 13, 2020 at 8:18 pm Its quite good. Haven't seen much improvement on the base stack and native stack of Android but definitely a right direction Reply February 13, 2020 at 9:30 pm But you still have tons of if conditions before you can use the view. Reply February 13, 2020 at 11:06 pm Is it possible to use view binding with PreferenceFragmentCompat? I have a custom layout for my preferences screen, but this layout is inflated automatically (using setPreferencesFromXml method), so I can't inflate it using static method "inflate" Reply February 13, 2020 at 11:13 pm Is it possible to use view binding with custom layout for PreferenceFragmentCompat, which is inflated automatically by setPreferencesFromXml method? Reply February 14, 2020 at 12:12 am I'm looking at this as a replacement for Butterknife. Hopefully this won't be perpetually broken like databinding is. Are there any proguard/r8 considerations that we should be aware of? Reply February 14, 2020 at 12:12 am What are the best practices for onDestroyView() of Fragment? Should we be freeing this viewbind? Reply February 14, 2020 at 12:16 am Does this mean Android Studio 3.6 will be moving out of release candidate soon? Currently at rc3 on February 10th. Reply February 14, 2020 at 12:21 am Last time i am using binding, i really confused. But, yes my code is clean than before.
