how is intellij/kotlin performing for other folks? I've had severe performance issues in medium-sized projects for as long as I can think. fluent coding is impossible.
For me it is working fine in a multiplatform project. Probably depends on some factors. Do you run on the latest 1.3.61 since some big IDE speedups landed? (and more coming up)

there are some weird slowdowns and hang-ups from time to time, but overall usable. (Large kotlin-only jvm project)
For me — usable but much, much slower than Java. In some specific cases — lots of nested coroutines + generics, editing slows to a crawl. What’s your definition of fluent? 🙂 I definitely see how for someone used to performance of Java in IntelliJ might see editing Kotlin as non-fluent
The performance is absolutely terrible. Bordering on unusable. We have already started converting our project back to Java because of this. mixed Kotlin + Java backend app JetBrains response to this is lackluster.
@Jurriaan Mous thanks for the link. I'm using 1.3.61 in some projects but not others (e.g., intellij plugin)
how big is your project, @poohbar?
