Building a library for Android and iOS using Kotlin Multiplatform
Sharing code between platforms is a powerful technique, but it may be hard to accomplish without rich APIs that we have in Android, JVM, or iOS platforms. Kotlin Multiplatform libraries can be used to fix that, bringing rich APIs directly in the common Kotlin code. What an exciting frontier! In this talk we’ll go over the creation of a Kotlin Multiplatform library. You’ll learn how modules for each platform work, decide what parts of the code makes sense to share & what doesn’t. Based in experiences gathered after creating a library at Mixtiles used to fetch images from diff cloud providers.
