While working on my new android app I found two nice libraries which I started to use.

The first one is Timber. It is just a class which is very helpful and will be part of every new android project I will write. I am using it to log to a file in debug mode with logback-android. After adding my FileLoggingTree in my Application class

Timber.plant(new FileLoggingTree());

logging is a easy as this


The second one is Butterknife. I have been using RoboGuice until then but was always bothered because it uses reflection. Butterknife is exactly what I need. Code is generated for the bindings like

@BindView(R.id.tagList) ListView tagList;
