This article is the second part of my series about Solve Network-Database (Room) by Android Jetpack Paging library and Coroutine:
In the first article, We went through how to solve network-database(room) by using Paging library and Coroutine. This article is about adding a refresh feature to the flow.
With the first article, your app is able to…
