Revamped Kotlin Documentation – Give It a Try

We’re revamping our Kotlin documentation to bring you more helpful features and improve your user experience. To name just a few advantages, the new Kotlin documentation:

  • Is mobile friendly.
  • Has a completely new look and improved structure.
  • Provides easy navigation on each page.
  • Lets you share feedback on every page.
  • Lets you copy code with a single click.

More features such as dark theme support are coming soon.

Kotlin revamped documentation

Before going to production and deprecating the current version of the documentation, we want to ensure that we haven’t missed any critical issues. We’d be extremely grateful if you would look through the new revamped documentation and share your feedback with us.

What’s next? 👣

We will collect your feedback over the next two weeks and analyze it. If there are critical issues that many of you point out, we will do our best to address them before going to production and deprecating the existing documentation.

We will also communicate our plan to address all the feedback that we receive from you. We can’t promise that we will be able to do everything at once, but we will strive to improve the Kotlin documentation and to bring you the best possible user experience! Your feedback will help us achieve this.

Check the #docs-revamped channel in our public Slack (get an invite) for more information and updates.
