What is the current status with regards to performance of Kotlin Native?
I understand that it’s not reasonable to expect it to be as fast as on the JVM, but I see performance drops of 100 times or so.
My application is implemented as a multiplatform library, and is an implementation of a programming language (called KAP). My benchmarks written in KAP itself and then run on the interpreter written in Kotlin runs on the order of 100 times slower when using the native version compared to the one running on the JVM.
My question is: Is there any plan to make Kotlin Native significantly faster for my use case? The reason I’m asking is because I’m considering dropping support for multiplatform and make my implementation pure JVM. That would make development a lot easier, and no one would want to run the native version anyway with the performance the way it is.
For reference, this is my project. If anyone wants information as to how to run my benchmarks, let me know and I’ll be happy to explain: https://github.com/lokedhs/array
