Description (last modified by dzhang)

This is an umbrella issue that covers multiple issues related to the implementation of MVVM architecture for ABP.



  1. It's an improvement over MVC ("Massive View Controller")
  2. Implemented in ABB (by Salsita)
  3. Supports cross-platform development ie (iOS/macOS)
  4. Allows for "UI testing without a UI"
  5. Views can be "reactive" without dependence on shared mutable state
  6. Results in less code with clearer structure

What is a ViewModel?

It's a class that provides functions for the input and output of a view. It is independent of UI dependencies ie (UIKit/AppKit).

Where do view controllers fit in?

View controllers present Views using a View Model to handle input/output.

How is MVVM implemented?

Using RxSwift.

What to change

Implement MVVM according to individual issues describing specific implementation contexts.
