Add Third Party Libraries2:29 with Jamie Huson
We’ve set up our app project and now we’re ready to display a list of items from Etsy. To help us interact with the Etsy API we’re going to use two helpful open source libraries, Picasso and Retrofit.
Be sure to check for the latest versions of these libraries available at the sites below:
Picasso: lets us load images from the internet without worrying about advanced topics like caching, multi-threading, or memory constraints.
Retrofit: enables us to create readable Java interfaces and classes that match the API we are accessing, as well as allowing us to interact with simple Java objects instead of having to parse network responses manually
