Jet vs Kotlin naming


#1

What is "Jet"? What and when should I use it in class names?


#2

"Jet" is the first codename we used for Kotlin. It is used historically to name PSI classes (nodes in the parse tree) and some IDE classes + there's JetType to avoid confusion with ASM's Type.

A good rule of thumb is not to use this prefix unless all other classes in the same package have it.


#3

Got it. Thanks!
