Hi, about Kotlin compiler plugins, is it possible to activate a plugin just by having a jar in the compilation classpath? /cc @ilya.chernikov

bamboo: I think something like that is done here, if it helps https://github.com/elizarov/KotlinSerializationPrototypePlayground

Hm, almost, it still requires additional configuration:
Copy code
compileKotlin {
    kotlinOptions.freeCompilerArgs += ["-Xplugin", "lib/kotlin-serialization-gradle.jar"]
}
But I think that might be enough for my use case. Thanks, @damian!

bamboo: yes, at least you need to add
-Xplugin
with appropriate arg. But I actually encountered some problems with it, and had no time to investigate. So, please report if something is not working as expected there.

Hey @ilya.chernikov, thanks. With the
-Xplugin
argument it worked but then I realized IntelliJ was not picking up the additional configuration. I assume that would require a proper IntelliJ plugin, right?

Yes, that’s usually a separate one.
