Is there a library that implements the Debug / inspect functionality similar to the Rust
inspect
? Where you get a full dump of a class, not just the
toString

You could use
Json.serializeToString
from the kotlinx.serialization library. If you don't want to use that, there's
ToStringBuilder
+
RecursiveToStringStyle
from Apache commons.

You can implement a simple compiler plugin that calls
IrModuleFragment.dump()
on any class/file which should give you the full dump of the file, see: https://blog.bnorm.dev/writing-your-second-compiler-plugin-part-2 for a reference

That's a neat way to go about it ^^, is that compiler plugin available as library?
Probably requires some additional smithing to be cool to use.

There is no IR in runtime, so plugin approach won't work. Some kind of serialisation is a good solution

Thanks for clarifying, I missed that.
