    A lightweight synchronizer between Android's TabLayout and RecyclerView.

    😍 A beautiful, fluid, and extensible dialogs API for Kotlin & Android.

    [ACTIVE] Simple Stack, a backstack library / navigation framework for simpler navigation and state management (for fragments, views, or whatevers).

    For me, it's simple-stack.
