Local Unit Testing: Android Unidirectional Data Flow with LiveData

Beginning to test the Coinverse app from scratch was daunting at first. Where do I begin between testing the UI and business logic? How do I handle components that work with the network responses, databases, and analytics? After modularizing the app using Android's Unidirectional Data Flow (UDF) and LiveData, writing local unit tests for the business logic became simpler. This talk covers how to use the UDF pattern with LiveData in Kotlin in order to write Junit 5 tests with MockK.
