    Using any of the 5 prominent community alternatives is a better approach (even though most people hoping to use the docs as if it was like, written for stable code, will muck around with their apps crashing if the user inputs a & symbol). I have this thing but I'd consider taking a look at https://github.com/adrielcafe/voyager or maybe https://github.com/olshevski/compose-navigation-reimagined

  • voyager

  • ViewPropertyObjectAnimator

    Wrapper of the ObjectAnimator that can be used similarly to ViewPropertyAnimator

    This is probably just my experience, but with Compose I have to muck around with LaunchedEffects and manual interpolation, while with XML views I could just use https://github.com/blipinsk/ViewPropertyObjectAnimator and AnimatorSet().playTogether().
