We support a couple of Android R resources types in Titanium already.
With having Hyperloop these days, we are able to perform powerful Android interactions like the BottomNavigationView, RecyclerView API's. It's convenient to load the views via XML and configure them via colors and strings inside the platform/android/res/ directory. For a concrete use-case, we need to load a menu resource for the bottom navigation view, which would be Ti.Android.R.menu.xxxx, but the menu namespace is not exposed. Therefore, this ticket proposes a tiny change that basically adds all (current) Android R resources types to our resource lookup map, so developers can use the official SDK API's instead of hacking it together like in the example.
