Hello friends, this Netflix project may be interesting to you, especially if they can be convinced to add support for Kotlin https://medium.com/netflix-techblog/open-sourcing-polynote-an-ide-inspired-polyglot-notebook-7f929d3f447

Looks great, but we should wait for kotlin and groovy support. I currently put my imaginary money on beakerx projects, which supplies the same functionality for Jupyter and Jupyter lab. The kotlin support is not good, but it is mostly because of kotlin scripting state.

And the installation procedure is terrible. Beakerx is installed via conda.

Do you know what is the problem with kotlin scripting?

Last time I checked, the problem was that new scripting did not have REPL functionality. Meaning that there was no way to keep the state between script calls. Also it was not possible to return value from the script, but I believe the last was fixed.
There is a workaround for the first problem. Maybe I will fix it it when I have time.
