This repository contains sources for try.kotl.in

Manual installation 🐳

Before starting the Kotlin-Web-Demo execute two gradle tasks: copyKotlinLibs for downloading kotlin libraries for compiler and war for building war-archive from IDE or terminal:

$ gradlew ::copyKotlinLibs
$ gradlew war

By default try.kotl.in uses port 8080, and if that's OK, just make it available at http://localhost:8080 via this command:

$ docker-compose up

To change the port number, tweak 'docker-compose.yml':

    ports:
      - "your_port:8080"

If you'd like to log in to JetBrains account, Google, Facebook, GitHub, or Twitter, add corresponding keys to this configuration file:

    <Environment name="github_key" value="YOUR-KEY" type="java.lang.String" override="false"/>
    <Environment name="github_secret" value="YOUR-SECRET-KEY" type="java.lang.String" override="false"/>

How to add your own courses 📝

  • Add a course name to manifest.json.
  • Use that name to create a folder next to the Examples folder and put your course content under it.
  • Make a folder for each of the course topics (and don't forget adding them to manifest.json).
  • After that, create:
    1. Test.kt — for test questions
    2. Task.kt — for preview
    3. Solution.kt — for answers to the test questions
    4. task.md - tasks descriptions
    5. manifest.json - to store 'junit' configuration

See Kotlin-Koans for examples.

How to add your dependencies to kotlin compiler 📚

Just put whatever you need as dependencies to gradle.build via gradle task called library:

 library "your dependency"

NOTE: If the library you're adding uses reflection, accesses the file system, or performs any other type of security-sensitive operations, don't forget to configure the executors.policy.template in web-demo-backend. Click here for more information about Java Security Police

How to set Java Security Police in executors.policy.template

If you want to a customm dependency, use the marker @WRAPPERS_LIB@:

grant codeBase "file:@WRAPPERS_LIB@/junit-4.12.jar" {
  permission java.lang.reflect.ReflectPermission "suppressAccessChecks";
  permission java.lang.RuntimePermission "setIO";
  permission java.io.FilePermission "<<ALL FILES>>", "read";
  permission java.lang.RuntimePermission "accessDeclaredMembers";
};
