Isn't it easier and more straightforward to use Otto? Could you comment on the use cases where to use this instead of an event bus?

An example is in the EU4U sample code from The Busy Coder's Guide to Android Development

onAttach(Activity activity) is now deprecated in favour of onAttach(Context context). Does that impact this pattern? Especially considering the use of ContextWrapper.

Hey guys! I use this concept so heavily that I packaged my base ContractFragmet and ContractDialogFragment implementations into a small library. I also extended this pattern to support parent fragment implementations of the contract as well. You can find instructions on how to add this in gradle here:

Let me know what you think :)

Shocked to see mContract in @JakeWharton's code. I thought he is totally against Hungarian notation..

Oh I see, that was 7 years ago. Forgivable! :--)
