Fabric language module for Kotlin. Adds support for Kotlin exclusive entrypoints and bundles the Kotlin Stdlib as well as common kotlinx libraries.

Usage

Dependency

Add it as a dependency to your Gradle project:

dependencies {
    modImplementation("net.fabricmc:fabric-language-kotlin:1.10.19+kotlin.1.9.23")
}

Adapter

Use the kotlin adapter for your mod by setting the adapter property in the fabric.mod.json file. Remember to the add a dependency entry to your fabric.mod.json file:

{
    "schemaVersion":  1, 
    "entrypoints": {
        "main": [
            {
                "adapter": "kotlin",
                "value": "package.ClassName"
            }
        ]
    },
    "depends": {
        "fabric-language-kotlin": ">=1.10.19+kotlin.1.9.23"
    }
}

For more info reference the fabric.mod.json documentation.

Do not forget to set the schemaVersion to 1 or it will fall back to schema 0 and will not attempt to load entrypoints.

package mymod

fun init() {
    TODO()
}

Companion objects can be used by appending $Companion to the class. Take care of processResources there, it might try to expand it, in that case escape it.
