  • okio

    A modern I/O library for Android, Java, and Kotlin Multiplatform.

    OkHttp depends on Square’s Okio and Kotlin to provide great performance and backwards-compatibility. It’s really easy to use, but it can be hard if you have to work on complicated stuff like mid-connection checks or proxy tunneling. Plus, it won’t chart the results directly into objects. It has been developed with a simplicity mind-set. You can find more about OkHttp here.

  • WorkOS

    The modern API for authentication & user identity. The APIs are flexible and easy-to-use, supporting authentication, user identity, and complex enterprise features like SSO and SCIM provisioning.
