Scalable Jetpack Compose Navigation


What is Jetpack Compose navigation?

Google’s approach to Jetpack Compose navigation

  • A NavHost needs to be defined within the Composable that is the host for navigation.
  • Within this NavHost each route is defined using the composable function.
  • The composable function takes a string parameter that defines the route, and any arguments that appear within the string. It is also able to modify the navigation behaviour using familiar concepts such as SingleTop, and to manipulate the navigation stack when navigating (i.e. popTo).
