For anyone that wasn't aware. accompanist coil and glide are deprecated. I moved to coil directly since it added support for compose and the apis seem to be easier to work with, I don't need a weird crop type anymore, and the intermittent image loading failures are all gone. Great job coil team and of course thanks to accompanist team for paving the way.

@Colton Idle Can you please explain more about "intermittent image loading failures are all gone."?

If I had a page that was supposed to load the same image 10 times (think a user avatar in a conversation list) then like randomly a single image wouldn't load. Haven't experienced this yet with coil-compose.

Actually. I can repro the intermittent loading issues. The weird crop type issue is gone though and the crossfade api is simpler. Can use a thumbs up here if you plan on using coil-compose
