Kotlin Standard Library Cookbook: Master the powerful Kotlin standard library through practical code examples
Build optimized applications in Kotlin by learning how to make use of the standard library features the smart way
Given the verbosity of Java, developers have turned to Kotlin for effective software development. The Kotlin standard library provides vital tools that make day-to-day Kotlin programming easier. This library features the core attributes of the language, such as algorithmic problems, design patterns, data processing, and working with files and data streams
The recipes in this book offer coding solutions that can be readily executed. The book covers various topics related to data processing, I/O operations, and collections transformation. We’ll walk through effective design patterns in Kotlin and you’ll understand how coroutines add new features to JavaScript.
As you make your way through the chapters, you’ll learn how to implement clean, reusable functions and scalable interfaces containing default implementations. In the concluding chapters, we’ll provide recipes on functional programming concepts, such as lambdas, monads, functors, and Kotlin scoping functions.
By the end of the book, you’ll be able to address a range of problems that Kotlin developers face by implementing easy-to-follow solutions.
