Workflow is an application framework that provides architectural primitives.
- Written in and used for Kotlin and Swift
- A unidirectional data flow library that uses immutable data within each Workflow. Data flows in a single direction from source to UI, and events in a single direction from the UI to the business logic.
- A library that supports writing business logic and complex UI navigation logic as state machines, thereby enabling confident reasoning about state and validation of correctness.
- Optimized for composability and scalability of features and screens.
- Corresponding UI frameworks that bind Rendering data classes for “views” (including event callbacks) to Mobile UI frameworks for Android and iOS.
- A corresponding testing framework that facilitates simple-to-write unit tests for all application business logic and helps ensure correctness.
