172: Coil Image Loading Library with Colin White

Download

In this episode Donn and Kaushik sit down with Instacart Engineer Colin White to discuss a new image library he has created called Coil.

Coil is a Kotlin-first image library that focuses on ease of use, simplicity and extensibility. In this episode we ask him the question you’re probably wondering … “Why create an image library, isn’t this a solved problem already?” and then move onto the details of how the library works, and what it offers developers.

From Donn’s perspective – It’s an interesting library and gives you what you need with minimal footprint but offers you the extensibility that you’d want in the future. Its a good balance of “just enough” and “I might need this”.

Enjoy
