    what is the point / use of the
    metadata
    artifact? I was trying to add
    com.soywiz:klock
    to my multiplatform project, and I was struggling because I couldn't find a recent version for which all artifacts are present in the maven repository. I cloned its source and installed it to my local maven repository. The
    klock
    artifact is not present, but I tried adding
    klock-metadata
    as a dependency. It worked in one subproject, although I didn't try compiling, but not in another.@soywiz

    metadata
    is the same as
    common
    any multiplatform project will generate a
    metadata
    artifact along with artifacts for each target

    no problem. it confused me as well, i’m surprised the kotlin team didn’t anticipate such confusion in having the standard libraries end in
    common
    and custom libraries end in
    metadata

    it wouldn't hurt too much to rename it
    I don't think
    For the record, Android Studio has a nice little build button in the bottom left which runs gradle but doesn't refresh gradle. Well, usually not. Have to say though, it's not in your face like IntelliJ is with gradle build scripts, under the default settings at least.
