Hello, I'm coming back to Android development after a long break and wondering what the state of the art is re view initialization? Are we still using butter knife? Or Kotlin extensions? Or something else? (I know at least that Jetpack Compose isn't production ready yet)

To me, the most useful tool for accessing views is still Kotlin Extensions. While not completely safe, it is stable and does not require any boilerplate. Waiting for ViewBinding to become stable.

Thanks everyone! Yeah, I found
ViewBinding
after writing this. Since the preview is already RC it seems safe to use (for an app that will be released in a few months)
