Quickstart

Declare a Koin module

Write with the Koin DSL what you need to assemble:

// Given some classes 
class Controller(val service : BusinessService) 
class BusinessService() 

// just declare it 
val myModule = module { 
  single { Controller(get()) } 
  single { BusinessService() } 
} 

Starting Koin

Use the startKoin() function to start Koin in your application.

In a Kotlin app:

fun main(vararg args : String) { 
  // start Koin!
  startKoin {
    // your modules
    modules(myModule)
  }
} 

In an Android app:

class MyApplication : Application() {
  override fun onCreate(){
    super.onCreate()
    // start Koin!
    startKoin {
      // Android context
      androidContext(this@MyApplication)
      // modules
      modules(myModule)
    }
  } 
}
