Reactive lazy evaluation (memoization)

Hookless » Adapters » Lazy

ReactiveLazy is a reactive adapter that implements lazy evaluation (or memoization) while preserving reactivity, i.e. ability to respond to change. ReactiveLazy computes its value upon first read by calling its Supplier and then keeps returning the same cached value. The difference from non-reactive implementations is that ReactiveLazy will reset itself to uninitialized state when dependencies change. When this happens, dependent reactive computations are woken up, so that they can request new value. ReactiveLazy is a reactive intermediary. It can be used as a single-value reactive cache.


ReactiveLazy is included in core library.
