Florina, Chet, and Clara
(Chet is the one sporting the highly-collectible and terribly
elegant Android Toolkitty team swag jacket)
In this episode, Chet and Tor talk with Florina Muntenescu from Android developer relations and Clara Bayarri from the Android Toolkit team about text. The conversation spans spanning, spannables, spans, and of course spans, but also dives into some of the new text features in the P preview release, like pre-computed text measurement, magnifer, smarter Linkify, and baseline-alignment attributes.
