Heya \o I'm starting to code Kotlin and I'm really liking it, but the thing is, I have relatively low-end hardware. Running big IDEs like IntelliJ IDEA is a pain for me and can make the system unusable for minutes. I usually code in VSCode or Neovim with extensions. I...personally found that the experience was well, good, but just not that..well. The LSPs for Kotlin overall just suck compared to IJ. Plus installing and setting up Kotlin, JRE and everything wasn't a fun experience at all 😛 This is more of a request, rather than getting help, but can JetBrains please focus on better Kotlin support on IDEs which aren't IntelliJ IDEA?

I'd like this too (my coworkers prefer vs code and the Kotlin/Java interop is bad there so prevents us from beginning Kotlin adoption)

Just my thoughts 1. There are documentation provided by IntelliJ explaining how to get started with Kotlin Setting JDK up 2. with regards to VS code, most of the good stuff out there are not made by windows
