Getting started with rx-android

Installation and Setup

Add the rx-android dependency as well as a current version of rx-java to the build.gradle.

Because RxAndroid releases are few and far between, it is recommended you also explicitly depend on RxJava’s latest version for bug fixes and new features.


compile 'io.reactivex:rxandroid:1.2.1'
compile 'io.reactivex:rxjava:1.3.0'


compile 'io.reactivex.rxjava2:rxandroid:2.0.1'
compile 'io.reactivex.rxjava2:rxjava:2.1.0'

The use any Android Scheduler, create it with AndroidSchedulers.mainThread() or AndroidSchedulers.from(anyLooper) directly and without any further configuration.
