Where does JetBrains products use Kotlin?


#1

hi,

I am interested in Kotlin.
so I’m going to do a little seminar to introduce Kotlin to the technical organization of the company I work for.
so I am collecting and organizing data.

I read about the use of kotlin to make(or improve) products in JetBrains.
where does JetBrains products use Kotlin?

do you know any related articles or content?

I think for now you can only use it to build Android


#3

This is completely not right. I am using it for scientific applications and a lot of people using it for web development.
But the question was about JetBrains, not about users. I believe, it is used extensively inside IDEA and other products, but I will leave the answer for JetBrains representatives.

Checkout their github: https://github.com/JetBrains/intellij-community/search?l=kotlin


#5

I’m investigating the material I want to use for server side development.
thank you.


#6

People who use Kotlin have found a lot of stories on the web.
but I wondered where I was using Kotlin in the JetBrains.
thank you.


#7

Kotlin is used in IntelliJ IDEA and related products, TeamCity configuration DSL, Upsource, YouTrack, Rider, the internal license management system and in many smaller projects.


#8

I wonder what you mean with that, only build it on Android?

I’m using it currently to build a Spring web application. But indeed, the original question was about: where does JetBrains themselves actually use it?

The Kotlin compiler is written in a mixture of Java and Kotlin itself and I think I’m right in saying that they’re trying to migrate more code to the latter as the language evolves.
