Hi there, recently I had need for some kind of a MutableLiveData, but easily integratable with Flows and without the Android dependency. I came up with this solution, but I wonder, if there is a simpler solution. Any ideas?

You can use
chan.value
to get the most recent value. Conflated channel sends always succeed, therefore you can use
offer
instead of
send
So
Copy code
var value
    get() = chan.value
    set(value) { chan.offer(value) }
Just invoke
chan.offer(initialValue)
in an init block
It seems like you could just use a typealias to ConflatedBroadcastChannel.

You’re right, much easier this way, thanks 🙂
