Kotlin, RxAndroid and Mosby

I haven’t done any Android programming in a while, after the last day of this term I have some free time to explore the latest and the greatest in Android.

I’ve always wanted to try out RxAndroid, just to make my life easier with running tasks on background threads. As for Kotlin, it seems many Android developers are showing an interest in it, so naturally I want to try it out.

In last week’s [Android Weekly](androidweekly.net) there was a post about a new Framework for implementing MVP design pattern in Android, it’s Mosby. It seems to solve some problems, so looks like something I want to try out.

However I’m not sure how well Kotlin and Mosbly will mix, since Mosby uses Butterknife by default, which requires annotation processing. Hopefully this won’t be an issue.

So in order to try these things out, I’m going to re-write my oldest android app using Kotlin, RxAndroid and Mosby.
