This week, we take a look at images and how they get scaled and zoomed. We explore navigation some more, both in terms of Navigation for Compose and alternatives for Compose for Desktop. We also review the main container composables and decide whether ConstraintLayout() is essential.
And, if you read all the way to the end… I’m looking for your feedback on this newsletter!

…And One More Thing
This issue wraps up the first year of this newsletter.
When I originally created the newsletter, it was supposed to be in support of some broader Jetpack Compose work that I had been planning. Right now, that work is on indefinite hold, and it is likely that it will never happen.
So, this seems like a fine time to take stock and see whether this newsletter should continue.
I would love to hear what you think! In particular:
  • Is this newsletter worthwhile to you?
  • What recommendations do you have on making it better?
I cannot promise that I will be able to implement all the recommendations. For example, my newsletter publishing platform is Revue, and it does not support monospace fonts. As such, I cannot directly include extended code snippets without them looking pretty nasty, or having to possibly convert them into images.
But, if you have feedback, please send it to me! If you are getting the actual email newsletter, there should be thumbs-up and thumbs-down buttons just below the body of the newsletter. Not only can you cast a vote, but you get a text box where you can provide specific feedback. Or, reach out via email or Twitter.
Did you enjoy this issue?
