I just updated my kotlin plugin to version 1.2.10 from the IDE (community edition). From that point I changed my gradle file to reflect the new version, and there IDEA started to ask me for an android SDK. The project is not an android application and have nothing to do with android.
Now I see two new button next to the run arrow and the bug icon to start the debugger which were not there before and are most certainly related to android. A message that i cannot remove is now on top my code window stating:
Grade project sync failed. Basic functionality […] will not work properly.
I use two windows for two projects: a library and an desktop application using this library. The library is the one for which i changed the gradle file to point to kotlin 1.2.10 and which is asking for the android SDK. The application on the other hand is still behaving normally, and i haven’t changed the kotlin version in the gradle file there yet.
So, the question: what is going on ? I don’t want to download the android SDK which I will not use, how can I then remove this requirement from my project?
