I would like to introduce Kotlin at work. We are primarily a Python/Django shop, but we’re starting a greenfield project and I have full latitude to choose the tech stack. Kotlin looks like a good fit for the most part, but my one qualm is with database migrations.
Django has a very easy to use migration generator. You edit your source files to add a new field to a model, you run
./manage.py makemigrations, then
./manage.py migrate, and you’re done. It handles dependencies, versioning, and everything else.
Is there anything similar in the Java/Kotlin ecosystem? Or at least, something that is actively-maintained, ergonomic to use, and isn’t just a gimped version of a commercial package?
