    I estimated it would take me half a day to complete. I thought it would be a couple of import statement changes and some variable renaming because our app already was using Moshi, another JSON parsing library, and we had already deprecated GSON. I was wrong. The project ended up taking 5 weeks off and on, produced a 3k line code diff, and upon release, it immediately crashed the Reddit Android App. After a quick hotfix, I finally eliminated the last remnants of GSON and made Reddit more stable.

    Create a data class that has your 3 arrays in it, and use something like moshi to serialize it to a json string, and write it to a file. Read the file in and use moshi to go from string to data object. Database makes sense for many things, but saving state to disk as json (or some other serialization format) is easy and useful in many scenarios as well.
