Finally, from your Official website It is worth highlighting the following information:

“Yoga already powers widely used open source frameworks. Allowing these to offer a simple and intuitive design API that allows engineers to collaborate more easily between platforms. Yoga has unlocked cool features like Offline Layout Calculation to help ensure smooth UI performance. "

Stetho

Briefly, in the FOS describe this application as follows:

“Stetho is a debugging bridge for Android applications, allowing you to use Chrome's powerful developer tools and much more."

While his website on GitHub defines it more broadly, as follows:

“Stetho is a sophisticated debugging bridge for Android applications. When enabled, developers have access to the Chrome Developer Tools (Chrome DevTools) feature, which is part of the Chrome desktop browser. Developers can also choose to enable the optional dumpapp tool, which provides a powerful command-line interface for internals of the application."

Finally, from your Official website It is worth highlighting the following information:

Finally, from your Official website It is worth highlighting the following information:

“It is a tool for detecting errors in Java and C / C ++ / Objective-C code before it goes to production. Thus, by providing Infer with some Java or C / C ++ / Objective-C code, it produces a list of potential errors, which anyone could use to trap critical errors before they are sent to users, thus helping to prevent failures or poor performance in developments."
