Description

Name

Kotlin/Native

Homepage

Why?

Kotlin/Native is a target for the Kotlin programming language. This package would allow local compilation of native Kotlin libraries without needing a build tool like Gradle, which would install a prebuilt version of the Konan compiler in the user's home directory. This is not a replacement for the kotlin package, it is meant to be independent, as it is a separate compiler toolchain. In addition, this package does not require multiple JDK versions to build (thankfully), so it can actually be updated, unlike the kotlin package.

Open source?

Yes, the repository lives at https://github.com/JetBrains/kotlin-native/.

I'm assuming you want to be maintainer?

Sure, I can maintain it. I've managed to build locally already and I closely follow Kotlin development anyway. I'll get a differential pushed soon.
