We’re excited to announce that Embrace now supports Jetpack Compose! Android engineers working with this modern toolkit will be able to take advantage of Embrace’s granular, high-fidelity mobile experience monitoring solution. Read on to learn more.
Why Jetpack Compose
Jetpack Compose is a modern toolkit for building native Android UI. It simplifies and accelerates UI development on Android and allows you to quickly bring your app to life with less code, powerful tools, and intuitive Kotlin APIs. It’s become very popular among Android devs for a few reasons.
- It saves time. It lets you do more with less code and avoid entire classes of bugs.
- It’s intuitive. Because it’s a declarative framework, engineers can just describe the changes they want to their UI, and the framework will take care of it.
- It’s compatible with existing Android code. You can call Compose from Views, and Views from Compose.
- It’s powerful. It provides direct access to the Android platform APIs and built-in support for Material Design, dark theme, animations, and more – so engineers can build beautiful, complex UIs with much less implementation work.
Jetpack Compose taps now appear in the Embrace User Timeline
Embrace’s support for Jetpack Compose allows engineers to see interactions directly within the User Timeline. Our SDK captures click interactions on Jetpack Compose elements, and shows these interactions as “tap” breadcrumbs in the timeline. The location of these “taps” are represented as coordinates on the screen.
