Startup Tasks, Modules, and Stateful Delegates - Shiny Style

Shiny isn't all about backgrounding, DI, RX, and all of that cool stuff. It actually provides a ton of utility functions as well.


Beacons - Shiny Style

Beacons are low powered IoT devices that emit a signal over Bluetooth advertising that contains a specific (and very small piece of data) that is like an address. You attach that address to a "location" of some type. They are like an invisible light house. If you have a device that can "see" those signals, you can find out how close you are to it.


Geofencing with a Pinch of Notifications - Shiny Style

GPS & Geofencing is a common need for mobile and IoT platforms alike. However, mobile platforms with backgrounding in this area are always painful and that is being nice. We've tried several plugins over the years, but they have all some sort of pain point. Shiny aims to solve all of these as it provides a lot of base infrastructure to make things... shiny ;)
