In the event you google “Glassmorphism” you’d see a whole lot of articles on creating glassmorphic UI designs which is mainly a panel that blurs the background behind it. It’s turning into an enormous pattern as of 2022 and never going to lie, it seems actually cool!

When you concentrate on implementing it, the very first thing that may come to thoughts is Modifier.blur() which solely blurs the background of itself (“Psst, solely works on Android 12 and above”).

By no means thoughts!

Right here’s a small library that has its personal quick blur technique and provides you Glassmorphic Column and Row compostables.
