  • timber

    A logger with a small, extensible API which provides utility on top of Android's normal Log class.

    Do you still use the Android Timber lib? The only real pro I see is that you don't need to declare the Tag, other than that that "pro" where each call checks if debug or not I wonder why you would like to have that, I mean what I want is all debug-only logs to get stripped out from the code, and instead of calling if(BuildConfig.Debug) on each Timer.xy() call why not create an extra Application class under the debug folder where logs are activated? Just trying to figure out of this lib that actually started like 9 years ago is still needed or not really anymore.

  • logcat


    We do use Timber. Another library that seem easy to use that I want to use in the future is logcat from Square.

  • Appwrite

    Appwrite - The Open Source Firebase alternative introduces iOS support. Appwrite is an open source backend server that helps you build native iOS applications much faster with realtime APIs for authentication, databases, files storage, cloud functions and much more!
