    I have not chimed in here for awhile. Has any work been done to get the Compose tools to run on Windows machines yet?

    Official work: no. Unofficial work: I remember seeing someone getting it to work using WSL.

    The tools probably run on Windows just fine but it's our build system that's the issue. Someone indeed wrote a blog post on how to use WSL on Windows 10 to use Compose.

    for the lazy ones: https://medium.com/@Alex.v/running-jetpack-compose-on-windows-10-954738828f0b and if anyone has WSL2 (which allows you to access linux file safely from windows side), you might even be able to use the windows version of Android Studio. You will need to do is to update
    ./studiow
    to detect if it's WSL linux or normal linux, and download the right version of it 🤞
