Unlike constructors, they do not require to create a new object each time they’re invoked. When we are using static factory method, we can include caching mechanism to optimize object creation. This way we can improve a performance of object creation. We can also define static factory method that is returning
null if object cannot be created, like
ions.createOrNull() which is returning
Connection cannot be created for some reason.
This is the Robinhood’s (Android, iOS) create order flow animation. The current implementation of this involves manually animating every single element on the page (the card view, the custom keypad, the FAB, etc.). The code is a little gross to read especially considering that we have to manually encode the forward and backward animations.
