, which isn’t a type but a function, and actually a few different functions with the same name. The search tools don’t surface the high level Box concept very well (at best, google will give you a generic looking page with a “Jump to Box” link), and there’s no central place to view everything related to Boxes. I think this is not because the docs aren’t there or are poorly written (the amount and quality of documentation for composables is actually really impressive for the most part), it’s that nobody has really written Kotlin apis like this before.

Locating which maven dependency you need for a given API is a problem that would be nice to solve even with non-Compose code.FWIW, for classes, the android.tech class lists can get you to the artifact fairly quickly. For example, classes beginning with
are at https://androidx.tech/classes/A. It shows each class and all the artifacts the class appears in, where each artifact leads you to versions that contain the class. I haven't attempted to address the top-level-function problem.
