Butter Knife: A View "Injection" Library for Android

· Mobile Zone

Android developers may be interested to know that Jake Wharton recently released Butter Knife 4.0, the most recent version of his view "injection" library for Android, which works by dynamically generating and using code to avoid boiler plate and dense helper libraries, and to deal with the fact that, as Wharton puts it in his explanation of Butter Knife, "Android developers, like most developers, are lazy."

According to Wharton's announcement on Google Plus, the new version includes "a slew of new listener callbacks, further optimized generated code, and a sexier class name." You can find the JAR download with complete overview on the Butter Knife website, and all the source code on Github.
