In this jetpack compose tutorial we learn about how to make an Android jetpack compose a bottom navigation bar. Navigation within Jetpack Compose has been somewhat difficult to implement prior to the most recent version by Compose’s Compose Toolkit Team.
The process of navigating between Android apps was challenging for many years, using parts and activities, with processes dying and lifecycles that surprise you I remember sifting through massive code bases to figure out where one screen was replaced with one as well as why. The Navigation component which came out in the last quarter of 2018 was an amazing step forward and enabled developers to design complex storyboards that have flows of screens while focusing the entire data set in XML graphs and offering actions and destinations in more comprehensible terms to navigate.
Android Jetpack Compose came along.

Navigation using Jetpack Compose
In the beginning, Compose did not offer an integrated way to navigate screens. We had to develop our own system of navigation keeping the track of back stacks as well as back button clicks which was difficult to keep track of because the screen count increased and the application grew.
Recently, the Toolkit team has released the first version of Compose’s navigation libraries. Compose this is a lot less code and improved performance.
