Glide 4.x has introduced a new feature: the generated API. You've learned the basics of this new feature in our generated API tutorial. One upside of the generated API is that it's easy to extend. This allows you to centralize implementation patterns in your app.
In this tutorial you'll learn how to extend the generated API on two examples. You'll build an app, which re-uses the same profile layout in different contexts: user, business, product. All of them use the same layout of today's design: a rounded profile photo and a large background image. With Glide 4.x and the generated API, you can centrally configure the options for each image.
