Kotlin Goes Open Source!
In addition to Kotlin Web Demo, a web-based environment for editing, running and sharing Kotlin programs, we’ve opened access to snapshot builds and source code (under the Apache 2 License) of the following:
- The Kompiler — Kotlin compiler,
- Enhancements to basic Java libraries — convenient utilities for JDK collections and more,
- Build tools — Ant and Maven integration, and
- IntelliJ IDEA plugin — Kotlin’s native IDE.
We are also looking for Kontributors, i.e. Kotlin contributors — brave souls eager to make this world a better place together with us. All Kontributions, from compiler to IDE patches to libraries and examples, are welcome and appreciated. You can start by reading our issue tracker or by just picking your favorite library and making it Kotlin-friendly.
Note that Kotlin is still under development. You can download snapshot builds here: https://github.com/JetBrains/Kotlin/downloads.
Attention: Latest builds of IntelliJ IDEA are required for running the plugin.
