Server Driven UI(SDUI).

What is Server Driven UI?

Generic API request
The high-level view of App UI

🤔 Are there any advantages of this Server Driven UI?

Advantages

  1. Companies no longer need to depend on users to update the app to show a specific UI or change the UI's order.
  2. Easy shipping of new features and reusable components.

Ready to implement it

  1. JetPack Compose from Android
  2. Proteus from Flipkart
  3. Epoxy from Airbnb
  4. Litho from Facebook
  5. Graywater from Tumblr

JSON Format

{
"type": "Container",
"alignment": "center",
"child": {
"type": "RaisedButton",
"color": "...",
"..." : "...", }
}
