Hey everyone! I may be about to start an Android project that will likely be pure RxKotlin. Wondering how many people actually use that, and if there are any freelancers with significant Rx experience that might be available to help. If so please message me with a little about yourself, and let me know your level of experience and rate. My colleague and I are both former Googlers, working freelance for a start up based in Brooklyn.

RxKotlin is a bit of a misgnomer, because it's just a few (helpful!) extension methods sitting on top of RxJava. Just something to keep in mind if you're diving into a new rx codebase!

Thanks Alexander - I wasn’t aware of that! I’ve built things with RxJava before but never RxKotlin

Yeah it just adds a few convenient extension functions (
subscribeBy
, for example, let you use named parameters when subscribing to a stream) but it's a pretty small library

Generally speaking, RxKotlin was created to adjust RxJava to more idiomatic usage with Kotlin 🙂
