  4. ❖ State of the app changes for user interactions, The

    UI need to be updated to display the current data. Manipulating views can increase the probability of errors and illegal states. For example, an update might try to set a value of a node that was just removed from the UI. ❖ If a piece of data is rendered in multiple places, it’s easy to forget to update one of the views that shows it. It’s also easy to create illegal states ❖ The software maintenance is increasingly complex if the number of views increases. ❖ Imperative programming.
  5. None
  6. ❖ Declarative programming. ❖ DSL Kotlin. ❖ Declarative UI simplifies

    the engineering associated with building and updating user interfaces. ❖ The technique works by conceptually regenerating the entire screen from scratch, then applying only the necessary changes. ❖ Regenerating the entire screen is expensive in terms of time, computing power and battery usage.
  7. None
  8. ❖ Compose is a declarative UI framework. ❖ Compose intelligently

    chooses which parts of the UI need to be redrawn at any given time. ❖ Set of composable functions that take in data and emit UI elements. ❖ Dynamic Content.
  9. The function is annotated with the @Composable annotation The function

    takes in data The function displays text in the UI The function doesn't return anything This function is fast, idempotent, and free of side-effects Dynamic content

  11. None
  12. The caller updates the value of clicks. Compose calls the

    lambda with the Text function again to show the new value; this process is called recomposition. Composable functions can execute in any order. Composable functions can run in parallel
  13. None
  14. Limitation of inheritance: we have to have a single parent

    that we inherit from.
  15. ❖ Compose is not an annotation processor ❖ Kotlin compiler

    plugin in the type checking and code generation phases of Kotlin ❖ The implementation of the Composer contains a data structure that is closely related to a Gap Buffer. This data structure is commonly used in text editors.
