Several modifiers of the same type (in the example above the padding) can also be linked together. So the text component gets a frame which is a little bit away from the text itself, and again a distance outside the frame. Several nested complicated layouts are history.
During development, we noticed that the "debug" builds of the apps are sometimes slow. For example, large lists sometimes cannot be scrolled without any stuttering. However, these problems disappear as soon as a "release" build is used. Just like they are delivered in the Play Store. It is likely that this will be improved in future versions of Compose. In the meantime, this instruction is also on the official Android Developer Site.
The Accompanist Libraries ontain various "bleeding edge" features not yet found in Jetpack Compose. So there are components like pager, swipe to refresh, or even navigation transitions to be found in these libraries. The libraries were created by Chris Banes (former Google developer) and are now available as official Google Libraries. The use of the Accompanist Libraries is, as the name suggests, very common in Jetpack Compose projects. Sooner or later, these functions may appear in the official libraries.
The first version of Compose Multiplatform was also released at the end of 2021. This should now make it possible to develop apps for web, desktop and Android all in one. Similar to what is possible with Flutter. So far, we have been able to find a use case for it, but we will certainly keep an eye on the ongoing developments.
It is obvious that Jetpack Compose is not yet as mature as the conventional layout system. However, together with the "Accompanist Library", practically everything is already made possible. For everything that is still missing, Google has published a roadmap. There you can see what should be developed for Jetpack Compose in the next months / years.
