Has anyone used Bazel with IntelliJ and Kotlin? How is the experience of working with kotlin+bazel in general?
people have asked here about bazel in the past but not since 2018 it seems 🙂 Hopefully things have improved since then and perhaps someone here has some real world experience?

it’s decent but you don’t often get the newest intellij and kotlin versions
we wrote a little bit about our setup (doesn’t answer your question specifically):

cool thanks, I’m going to try and set up a test project to see how things are today

We use Bazel for our very large Kotlin codebase in Android Studio-- has been mostly a night-and-day difference compared to Gradle, which was unusable for us. Not perfect but it’s in pretty good shape, including integrated support for UI testing, unit tests, debugging.
