RxJava for Android Developers: with ReactiveX and FRP


RxJava for Android Developers teaches you how to build fast, fluid, and reactive mobile apps for Android with RxJava.

Purchase of the print book includes a free eBook in PDF, Kindle, and ePub formats from Manning Publications.

About the Technology

For Android developers, writing multithreaded apps can be as challenging as it is necessary. RxJava simplifies complex threading operations, maintaining proper synchronization as you switch seamlessly from thread to thread. RxJava also brings the benefits of reactive programming to your apps—that means better real-time responsiveness, the holy grail for every Android developer.

About the Book

RxJava for Android Developers begins by inviting you to think about programming and data the reactive way. This engaging, hands-on essential reference introduces you to the central pattern of RxJava for Android, then explains the View Model before exploring highly sought-after app features like chat clients and elegant transitions. Finally, you'll look at high-level design concerns and architectural approaches and frameworks that work well with Functional Reactive Programming (FRP) thinking.

What's inside

  • An introduction to reactive programming
  • Easier thread management
  • Improving UI responsiveness
  • Thinking asynchronously
  • Building a working chat client

About the Reader

Readers should have some experience building Android applications. No experience with RxJava is needed.

About the Author

Timo Tuominen has used FRP and RxJava extensively while working with Futurice as an architect of a major Android project for Samsung.

Introduction to Genetic Algorithms
Introduction to Genetic Algorithms

The origin of evolutionary algorithmswas an attempt tomimic some of the processes taking place in natural evolution. Although the details of biological evolution are not completely understood (even nowadays), there exist some points supported by strong experimental evidence:

• Evolution is a process operating over chromosomes...

The Theory of Differential Equations: Classical & Qualitative
The Theory of Differential Equations: Classical & Qualitative

Differential equations first appeared in the late seventeenth century in the work of Isaac Newton, Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz, and the Bernoulli brothers, Jakob and Johann. They occurred as a natural consequence of the efforts of these great scientists to apply the new ideas of the calculus to certain problems in mechanics, such as the paths of...

Magic Graphs
Magic Graphs

Magic squares are among the more popular mathematical recreations. Over the last 50 years, many generalizations of “magic” ideas have been applied to graphs. Recently there has been a resurgence of interest in “magic labelings” due to a number of results that have applications to the problem of decomposing graphs into...
