New Expandable Lists & Card components

There is now a new category added to the Composables collection: Expandable Lists.

This is a common pattern found in many apps to display Frequently asked questions, offer the user additional options or provide a set of filtering options.

There are three variations which you can explore. Check out the Expandable Lists section.

Composable Tools & AndroidX components now require a license

I decided to put all tools I have published on the website, along with the Androidx section behind a paywall. For those that might not be aware, Composables is a single person business. I build all the components you see on the website, along with the site itself, most content (thanks to the community contributors!) and all the Jetpack Compose tools, such as the SVG to Compose converter or the Material Symbols Compose.

Even though I love building stuff, I need to be able to pay my bills so that I can continue building more stuff for you.

tl;dr What changes for you:

  • if you have already purchased a Composables license, you are good!. You can continue receiving new free updates, components, new tools free of charge forever.
  • if you have not purchased a Composables license yet, you will be asked to purchase a license to continue using the site. Luckily, all licenses are one time purchases, without any subscriptions or hidden fees and are very affordable for the value you get. Buy your license by clicking here.

Keep in mind there are team licenses available if you are interested in purchasing access to the website for your entire team.

PS: Your employer would be super happy for you to expense a license using your training budget. Invoices are available after purchase.

Cheers, – Alex

Live Previews available on

You probably already know that Compose is a Multiplatform framework. This means that all components can be used on multiple platforms other than Android, such as Desktop, Web or even iOS.

From now on, all components and screens available on Composables UI come with Live Preview. This means you can click and scroll on all components as if they were used in your own apps!

Check them out at

Try out a Free Component

There is now a dedicated section in the website with premium components and screen you can use in your apps, for free.

Use these components as is, or use them as a base to build your own components. Try them out by clicking here.

Find AndroidX components easier

Preview of search functionality on Showcases how each result includes the library it belongs in.

I keep getting comments from you folks on how much you use the AndroidX section of the site to learn more about the Compose Foundation components or the ones built by Google in Material 2 and 3.

I wanted to make it even simpler to find the components you need, so I improved the search functionality.

You can now search from any part of the website by clicking on the search bar on top, or by pressing / on your keyboard while at the website.

As you type, you will quickly realize that all results include the library they come from. You can use the or keys to navigate the results. Hit Enter to quickly jump to the component you need.

'Added in' for Compose Multiplatform components

Compose Multiplatform is growing fast and Jetbrains has been given us some massive upgrades lately. To celebrate this and to make it simpler for people to jump to Compose Multiplatform, I have included the Multiplatform version the component can be found in.

This way you now know if a component you are looking for can be used in Multiplatform.

Head over to the AndroidX section of the site to try it out.

Magically adapt to phones and tablets

From now on all components and screens found in Composables UI are now fully responsive. This means that the components will automatically adapt to the screen configuration they are used in.

This will help you build tablet rich experiences in no time.

New Components added

Forms and inputs

Last but not least, more than 30 new components were added to the Composables UI collection in month, included in the following categories:

Click on each category to see each component live in action. Way more fun than showing you in a simple screenshot.

This is a free update to existing customers.

Almost 100 components!

We this close to reaching the 100 component milestone! I would like to thank everyone who have supported this journey so far and made the most out of the 50% discount of the components.

There are many more components to come, and the next update will be probably in a couple of days.

Save 50% by purchasing your access before the 100th component.

New Free Jetpack Compose tools

I have released a SVG to Compose converter tool, which you can access it here. You can use it to convert your assets to Compose (functions or vals) and keep all your assets to kotlin, easily accessible from Compose.

I have also released a small tool (access it here) that converts Hex and RGB colors to Compose Color() values and Android colors. This is particularly useful for design hand-offs and quickly converting colors from design tools and assets to a format you can use in Compose.

Icons preview

I added a few more customization options on the Material Symbols Compose page.

You can now choose the weight, shape and fill (or no fill) out of 2992 icons and add them to your project straight away.

No extra dependencies are required. Just click on an icon, and then paste it to your project.

Use any Material Color in your Jetpack Compose app

I published a little open-source utility library that includes all colors from the old school 2014 Material Pallet.

The Color class that comes with Jetpack Compose provides a few default colors but they are limited and not very exciting. I got tired of browsing the web for nice colors, and I believe the original colors look great, so now it's a library.

Here is a quick example of how to use any color in your project:

Text("Hello world!", color = MaterialColors.Gray[900])
Box(modifier = Modifier.background(MaterialColors.Amber[400]).clip(CircleShape))

PS: You might be tempted to use this for your app theme. Keep in mind that in modern versions of Android, you can let the system pick your theme colors out of the user's wallpaper using Material You, using the dynamicLightColorScheme() and dynamicDarkColorScheme() schemes.
