Feature Request: Auto-Import kotlin.js.Math


#1

While writing some code designed to work on both platforms (JVM & JS), I realized that Math functions can’t be accessed from the JS implementation without first importing kotlin.js.Math. This causes .kt files that should otherwise compile seamlessly on both platforms to suddenly require a platform-specific tweak for things like Math.pow() and Math.random(), even though they exist in both implementations!

Is there a reason kotlin.js.Math can’t be automatically imported like other packages? The ability to re-use more code between projects is one of the major benefits of having a JavaScript implementation in the first place, and this seems like an odd place to lose out on that.

This request probably also applies to Kotlin Native, assuming it has a similar Math package.

this was done intentionally in 1.1 for reasons. See https://youtrack.jetbrains.com/issue/KT-16175
btw kotlin.js.Math does not have the same interface as java.lang.Math


#3

In Kotlin 1.2 we’re going to deprecate kotlin.js.Math class in order to remove it later. The replacement functions will be provided in kotlin.math package, which is available on both platforms.
