How to Enable Kotlin Android Extensions by Default in Android Studio 4.1
In this commit you can see the message:
Replaced kotlinx synthetic with findViewById
kotlinx.android.synthetic is no longer a recommended practice. Removing in favour of explicit findViewById.
It says that it is no longer recommended, but that doesn't mean that you should not use it. They are providing guidelines, but you can choose what to use and what not.
- View Binding
In Kotlin 1.4.20-M2 JetBrains deprecated Kotlin Android Extensions compiler plugin.
kotlinx.android.synthetic is no longer a recommended practice. Removing in favour of explicit findViewById
Very sad news :(, i hate viewBinding
kotlin-android-extensions is deprecated, you must use view binding
