    Hi everybody! It’s the Kotlin Mobile Multiplatform team here.  It would be impossible for us to make effective ecosystem improvements without feedback from our users. We’d like to hear more about your specific experience in mobile multiplatform (iOS + Android) development. We’re particularly keen to find out which libraries you need most while building an app. Please, let us know by taking this survey: https://surveys.jetbrains.com/s3/kotlin-mobile-multiplatform-libraries-survey-slack The survey is short, but the answers may take some thinking about. 😃  And, as a reward, at the end of the survey we’ll give you a list of all the mobile multiplatform libraries that we discovered while putting the survey together. You could also win a free 1-year All Products Pack subscription. Enjoy! And please don’t forget to share this with your friends and colleagues!

    Heh, I opened this chat to ask if there's a proper DI library for KMP which is not a Service Locator implementation, and here is the survey about missing libraries. Still. Is there a non-SL DI library available for KMP?

    I'm just beginning to develop a KMP library for ios (framework) that depends on a KMP library (jvm and native). Seems to me like I have to wrestle with nested frameworks so I'm looking for references to existing solutions and discussions.

    I’m starting to dive deeper into KMP, and I’m wondering how some of you are setting up your development environments? I’m mainly an Android dev, so for iOS code I’m assuming I should just be using Xcode? Or is there a better way to bridge the two? I’ve seen that Jetbrains has AppCode with Kotlin Native support. Is that a better fit for KMP projects?

    Dear community, starting from the last Kotlin plugin EAP (
    1.3.70-eap-184
    ) there is no more need for special breakpoints for native debug (see https://kotlinlang.slack.com/archives/C3PQML5NU/p1564747546241900). Now same breakpoints work both for JVM and Native debugging in MPP. Feel free to share your feedback.

    This may well be a stupid question, but is there any chance in the future that Kotlin might target crossplatform native mobile apps in their entirety? Essentially something like React Native/NativeScript/Flutter? I had largely dismissed Java and the JVM for my entire career because of enterprise + massive bloat, but Kotlin has made me want to give it a shot. Especially with libraries like Arrow. It seem as though you can write incredibly clean multi-paradigm code and leverage all of the existing tooling and libraries for Java & the JVM. Essentially, something on the order of a better Typescript from the looks of it. My only hangup is that I have a hard time justifying picking up Kotlin and the JVM, when I am able to write Frontend + Backend + Cross-platform mobile apps in entirely Typescript. And then the hiring + talent-finding process becomes more difficult because I have to hire JS/TS devs and Java/Kotlin devs.
