Kotlin is commonly used for writing server-side, multiplatform, and Android apps, but there are tons of lesser known use cases. Among them are Minecraft plugin development, writing software for robots, or even creating PowerPoint presentations using Compose for Desktop - from this post. Anybody got a link for this one?
This looks like a custom DSL on top of Apache's POI. Is there a particular reason to bring Compose into it?
I guess this is a bit of a convoluted way to use Compose for a more dynamic content in the final static output.

i was using kotlin for my witness minecraft mod https://github.com/xxfast/fabric-witness
it utilises the fabricmc toolchain and lets you directly mixin with java runtime for minecraft. Kotlin really works well here, especially when you want to interop with an existing java game
and also a presentation on compose using compose

Very cool @smallshen - I toyed around with adding Compose UI to Minecraft last year, but it wasn't quite ready (at least not out of the box; required some hackiness to get around the lack of transparent layer support). This makes me want to give it another shot soon
