The current launch of Android Workshop, referred to as Dolphin, boosts Jetpack Compose display sneak peeks, prolongs Put on OS assistance, and also presents Gradle Managed Virtual Gadgets to streamline examination automation.

Jetpack Compose display sneak peek obtains 3 brand-new attributes: multipreview comments, a computer animation assessor, and also recomposition matters. Multipreview comments intend to minimize boilerplate code with sneak peek meanings that define which tools to produce sneak peeks for, the typefaces and also styles to make use of, and so forth. Notes can after that be recycled to prevent copy-pasting the meanings themselves, as designers needed to do previously. The complying with bit demonstrates how you can specify a FontScalePreviews note and also utilize it in a sneak peek composable:


@Preview(
    name = "little typeface",
    team = "font ranges",
    fontScale = 0.5f
)
@Preview(
    name = "big typeface",
    team = "font ranges",
    fontScale = 1.5f
)
note course FontScalePreviews

...

@FontScalePreviews
@Composable
enjoyable HelloWorldPreview() {
    Text("Hey There Globe")
}

The computer animation sneak peek assessor assists previewing and also tweak computer animations by permitting you to ice up a computer animation or run it frame-by-frame.

The Compose recomposition matter, offered in the Design Assessor, demonstrates how typically a sight is recomposed, that is re-rendered. This can aid recognize situations where as well constant recomposition might adversely affect efficiency.

Gradle Managed Virtual Gadgets is a brand-new function that intends to make it less complicated to handle and also configuration emulators utilizing for screening. As opposed to needing to by hand perform all needed actions to arrangement an emulator for screening, you can currently explain which online tools you desire in your build.gradle documents. The device will certainly after that download and install the equivalent SDK, if needed, arrangement and also established the emulator, and also run your examinations. This is exactly how you can utilize this function inside gradle.build:


android {
    managedDevices {
        tools {
            pixel2api30 (com.android.build.api.dsl.ManagedVirtualDevice) {
                gadget = "Pixel 2"
                apiLevel = 30
                systemImageSource = "google-atd"
            }
            ...
        }
    }
}

As stated, Put on OS assistance is likewise improved in Android Workshop Dolphin. This consists of a brand-new Put on OS Emulator Pairing Aide which assists handling and also pairing numerous Put on OS tools; boosted emulation toolbar which far better aligns to physical tools and also makes it feasible to imitate hand motions and also turning; and also, far better assistance for introducing a Put on OS application right into the precise state you anticipate it to be straight from the IDE.

As a last note, Android Workshop Dolphin updates its compiler toolchain to IntelliJ 2021.3, that includes a variety of renovations consisting of far better Kotlin debugging, boosted tips, and also remote coding assistance.

Android Workshop Dolphin can be downloaded and install from Google Android site or mounted straight from a previous variation.
