What is the equivalent of [NestedScrollView + RecyclerView] or [Nested RecyclerView (Recycler inside another recycler) in Jetpack compose

I want to create the following layout in Jetpack compose. enter image description here

I’ve tried creating two lists inside a vertical scrollable Box but that’s not possible as I got the this error: “java.lang.IllegalStateException: Nesting scrollable in the same direction layouts like ScrollableContainer and LazyColumn is not allowed. If you want to add a header before the list of items please take a look on LazyColumn component which has a DSL api which allows to first add a header via item() function and then the list of items via items().”

I’ve tried creating two different lists inside a parent list by using the following code, but that doesn’t work either.

@Composable
fun MainList() {
    LazyColumn() {
        
        item {
            /* LazyRow code here */
        }
        
        item {
            /* LazyColumn code here */
        }
    }
}

Now I’m clueless about what else could I try to achieve two lists (one vertical and one horizontal) on the same activity and keep the activity vertically scrollable too.

Answer

I think the best option, would be if the LazyVerticalGrid allows some sort of expand logic on each item, but looks like it’s not supported yet (beta-03).

So I’m leaving here my solution using one single LazyColumn for the entire list and LazyRow for “My Books” section.

LazyColumn(
    modifier = Modifier.fillMaxSize(),
) {
    // My Books section
    item {
        Column(modifier = Modifier.fillMaxWidth()) {
            Text("My Books")
            LazyRow {
                items(books) { item ->
                    // Each Item
                }
            }
        }

    }
    // Whishlisted Books title
    item {
        Text("Whishlisted Books", style = MaterialTheme.typography.h4)
    }
    // Turning the list in a list of lists of two elements each
    items(wishlisted.windowed(2, 2, true)) { item ->
        Row {
            // Draw item[0]
            // Draw item[1]
        }
    }
}

Here is my gist with the full solution and the result is listed below.
