I shared a proposal to introduce a Kotlin DSL idiomatic API that would be a subset of the current one, in order to reduce the complexity and the huge API surface currently exposed with many ways to do the same thing. That could allow to provide a much better DevXP without breaking Groovy DSL and the Gradle ecosystem. Please vote for https://github.com/gradle/gradle/issues/24154 if you think that makes sense.

between this and your spring-fu work, I think you are my favorite OSS developer :)

Keep up the great work! I remember pre-pandemic, when you were first putting up the spring-fu stuff, everyone at every Chicago KUG meeting was like "have you seen what Sébastien is doing with kofu?!" we were all big fans. I have incorporated the idea into my company's internal framework as a custom initializer + DSL for our stuff. Anyway, this is getting off topic, but if you are ever coming through Chicago, reach out. We would love to have you at Chicago Kotlin User Group to talk about whatever you want. I can't wait to see what this gradle proposal leads to. I have felt this pain as well, especially when trying to teach others about the kotlin dsl.
