✏️ 🖥️ Does anyone has experience with Compose for Desktop and using a native c library? I was able to load the native library desktop
Copy code
val resources = File(System.getProperty("compose.application.resources.dir")).parent
System.load(File(resources, "libutil.dylib").absolutePath)
But I don’t know how I can access it.
@Emmanuel loading the
.dylib
isn’t an issue. But I don’t know, how to access it via an JNI or c-interop call from inside kotlin.

Same as you would in Java, via JNI. In fact, you can write your JNI code in Java and just call it from Kotlin. See https://kotlinlang.org/docs/java-interop.html#using-jni-with-kotlin

You can also write K/N code that calls into the library and a Kotlin object to call into your K/N like in https://github.com/LandryNorris/JniUtils sample module.

ah sure, I had to add
JNIEXPORT
and
JNICALL
to the library to get access from outside.🎉
