# compose

Are there any plans to move Compose project outside of androidx repository / generally decouple it from android(x) / merge with Jetbrains' fork? I think as a whole Compose is inherently more multiplatform than android, although I'm not sure how complicated would it be to setup android dependencies/workflow in that case. Is relevant to above, or is it only about final binaries, no matter how produced? I'm mainly asking because it's currently hard to play with and contribute given the setup of AOSP, especially for non-android parts.

I think (think) that there’s a long-term intention to not have separate maven coords/plugin IDs for “pure android” artifacts vs the multiplatform-friendly ones, but I can’t say if there’s even a timeline for that, let alone what it might be, or if anyone is actively working on it.
