  • Do we really need to use Dependency Injection Framework?
    3 projects | /r/androiddev | 14 Nov 2021
    Now I will finish up saying Hilt is just an opinionated way to dependency injection on Android, but there are simpler frameworks out there such as Koin or Kodein that can help take away a lot of the troubles that can come when you try to make your own framework. Just know that most other frameworks tend to be runtime injection instead of compile time injection like Hilt, which can be helpful to know at compile time if you are missing a dependency in your graph as opposed to runtime when its out in the wild.
  • Yet another DI library, bit this time it's not a service locator
    4 projects | /r/Kotlin | 2 Jul 2021
    Long answer: My pain mostly comes from using [Kodein](https://github.com/Kodein-Framework/Kodein-DI/) and a custom service locator in an iOS/Swift project. Other than that I have very little experience with DI (e.g. I never used Dagger so far), so my opinion might be a little biased. Also, both of these projects are really large, so, in many cases, a class is declared in one module but used in a completely different module and the DI or service locator is sort of the glue between the modules.
