Api Client using Retrofit, RXJava and Kotlin

For last year since I found about Kotlin I’m learning how to use it in Android app development, Spring framework etc. I’m still amazed how expressive and functional this programming language is compared to our old friend Java. Kotlin is constantly updated with new features and it’s getting better and more popular every day.

I’m using angular and other javascript frameworks like vue in my work. I just love how easy is to work with API data with angular’s HttpClient, rx observables and other great tools packed with it. With few lines of code you get so much done. Now with Kotlin, Retrofit and RXJava you can do almost same in android development. In this tutorial I’ll try to show you just few cool and useful possibilities.
