Hi, I'm doing my thesis and need to explain why I made certain choices. I should write the app, such that it can be easily extended to JavaScript. My question is: Does Realm-Kotlin support a cliënt side local database in the close future? The reason I don't think this is the case is that this is not yet supported by Realm itself. Therefor the chance that it will be quickly added to Realm-Kotlin is low. Am I correct in my assumption? Thijs

Hi, are you asking if Realm-Kotlin will support Javascript as a target soon?

Oh, yes. With the same API as the other targets. Which probably means a cliënt side hosted database, as that is the closest to the other targets. (Compose multiplatform is also multiplatform, but doesn't share the same API, which means when using it, it just looks like a completely different library)

We don't have near plans to support JavaScript, because we need to compile the C++ storage engine into WebAssembly first ... We do have a Javascript SDK though you can use https://github.com/realm/realm-js
