Overview

rules_kotlin supports the basic paradigm of *_binary, *_library, *_test of other Bazel language rules. It also supports jvm, android, and js flavors, with the prefix kt_jvm and kt_js, and kt_android typically applied to the rules (the exception being kt_android_local_test, which doesn't exist. Use an android_local_test that takes a kt_android_library as a dependency).

Support for kotlin's -Xfriend-paths via the associates= attribute in the jvm allow access to internal members.

Also, kt_jvm_* rules support the following standard java_* rules attributes:

  • data
  • resource_jars
  • runtime_deps
  • resources
  • resources_strip_prefix
  • exports

Android rules also support custom_package for R.java generation, manifest=, resource_files, etc.

Other features:

  • Persistent worker support.
  • Mixed-Mode compilation (compile Java and Kotlin in one pass).
  • Configurable Kotlinc distribtution and version
  • Configurable Toolchain
  • Kotlin 1.3 support

Javascript is reported to work, but is not as well maintained (at present)

Quick Guide

WORKSPACE

In the project's WORKSPACE, declare the external repository and initialize the toolchains, like this:

load("@bazel_tools//tools/build_defs/repo:http.bzl", "http_archive")

rules_kotlin_version = "legacy-1.3.0"
rules_kotlin_sha = "4fd769fb0db5d3c6240df8a9500515775101964eebdf85a3f9f0511130885fde"
http_archive(
    name = "io_bazel_rules_kotlin",
    urls = ["https://github.com/bazelbuild/rules_kotlin/archive/%s.zip" % rules_kotlin_version],
    type = "zip",
    strip_prefix = "rules_kotlin-%s" % rules_kotlin_version,
    sha256 = rules_kotlin_sha,
)

load("@io_bazel_rules_kotlin//kotlin:kotlin.bzl", "kotlin_repositories", "kt_register_toolchains")
kotlin_repositories() # if you want the default. Otherwise see custom kotlinc distribution below
kt_register_toolchains() # to use the default toolchain, otherwise see toolchains below

Note - as of 1.4.0, release binaries will be available in which case you should do the following:

load("@bazel_tools//tools/build_defs/repo:http.bzl", "http_archive")

rules_kotlin_version = "legacy-1.4.0-rc3"
rules_kotlin_sha = "<release sha>"
http_archive(
    name = "io_bazel_rules_kotlin",
    urls = ["https://github.com/bazelbuild/rules_kotlin/releases/download/%s/rules_kotlin_release.tgz" % rules_kotlin_version],
    sha256 = rules_kotlin_sha,
)

load("@io_bazel_rules_kotlin//kotlin:kotlin.bzl", "kotlin_repositories", "kt_register_toolchains")
kotlin_repositories() # if you want the default. Otherwise see custom kotlinc distribution below
kt_register_toolchains() # to use the default toolchain, otherwise see toolchains below

BUILD files

In your project's BUILD files, load the Kotlin rules and use them like so:

load("@io_bazel_rules_kotlin//kotlin:kotlin.bzl", "kt_jvm_library")

kt_jvm_library(
    name = "package_name",
    srcs = glob(["*.kt"]),
    deps = [
        "//path/to/dependency",
    ],
)

Custom toolchain

To enable a custom toolchain (to configure language level, etc.) do the following. In a <workspace>/BUILD.bazel file define the following:

load("@io_bazel_rules_kotlin//kotlin:kotlin.bzl", "define_kt_toolchain")

define_kt_toolchain(
    name = "kotlin_toolchain",
    api_version = KOTLIN_LANGUAGE_LEVEL,  # "1.1", "1.2", "1.3", or "1.4"
    jvm_target = JAVA_LANGUAGE_LEVEL, # "1.6", "1.8", "9", "10", "11", "12", or "13",
    language_version = KOTLIN_LANGUAGE_LEVEL,  # "1.1", "1.2", "1.3", or "1.4"
)

and then in your WORKSPACE file, instead of kt_register_toolchains() do

register_toolchains("//:kotlin_toolchain")

Custom kotlinc distribution (and version)

To choose a different kotlinc distribution (1.3 and 1.4 variants supported), do the following in your WORKSPACE file (or import from a .bzl file:

load("@io_bazel_rules_kotlin//kotlin:kotlin.bzl", "kotlin_repositories")

KOTLIN_VERSION = "1.3.31"
KOTLINC_RELEASE_SHA = "107325d56315af4f59ff28db6837d03c2660088e3efeb7d4e41f3e01bb848d6a"

KOTLINC_RELEASE = {
    "urls": [
        "https://github.com/JetBrains/kotlin/releases/download/v{v}/kotlin-compiler-{v}.zip".format(v = KOTLIN_VERSION),
    ],
    "sha256": KOTLINC_RELEASE_SHA,
}

kotlin_repositories(compiler_release = KOTLINC_RELEASE)

Third party dependencies

(e.g. Maven artifacts)

Third party (external) artifacts can be brought in with systems such as rules_jvm_external or bazel_maven_repository or bazel-deps, but make sure the version you use doesn't naively use java_import, as this will cause bazel to make an interface-only (ijar), or ABI jar, and the native ijar tool does not know about kotlin metadata with respect to inlined functions, and will remove method bodies inappropriately. Recent versions of rules_jvm_external and bazel_maven_repository are known to work with Kotlin.

Development Setup Guide

As of 1.4.0, to use the rules directly from the rules_kotlin workspace (i.e. not the release artifact) additional dependency downloads are required.

In the project's WORKSPACE, change the setup:

# Use local check-out of repo rules (or a commit-archive from github via http_archive or git_repository)
local_repository(
    name = "io_bazel_rules_kotlin",
    path = "../path/to/rules_kotlin_clone",
)

load("@io_bazel_rules_kotlin//kotlin:dependencies.bzl", "kt_download_local_dev_dependencies")
kt_download_local_dev_dependencies()
load("@io_bazel_rules_kotlin//kotlin:kotlin.bzl", "kotlin_repositories", "kt_register_toolchains")
kotlin_repositories() # if you want the default. Otherwise see custom kotlinc distribution below
kt_register_toolchains() # to use the default toolchain, otherwise see toolchains below

Kotlin and Java compiler flags

The kt_kotlinc_options and kt_javac_options rules allows passing compiler flags to kotlinc and javac.

Note: Not all compiler flags are supported in all language versions. When this happens, the rules will fail.

For example you can define global compiler flags by doing:

load("//kotlin:kotlin.bzl", "kt_kotlinc_options", "kt_javac_options", "define_kt_toolchain")

kt_kotlinc_options(
    name = "kt_kotlinc_options",
    warn = "report",
)

kt_javac_options(
    name = "kt_javac_options",
    warn = "report",
    x_ep_disable_all_checks = False,
)

define_kt_toolchain(
    name = "kotlin_toolchain",
    kotlinc_options = "//:kt_kotlinc_options",
    javac_options = "//:kt_javac_options",
)

You can optionally override compiler flags at the target level by providing an alternative set of kt_kotlinc_options or kt_javac_options in your target definitions.

Compiler flags that are passed to the rule definitions will be taken over the toolchain definition.

Example:

load("//kotlin:kotlin.bzl", "kt_kotlinc_options", "kt_javac_options", "kt_jvm_library")

kt_kotlinc_options(
    name = "kt_kotlinc_options_for_package_name",
    warn = "error",
)

kt_javac_options(
    name = "kt_javac_options_for_package_name",
    warn = "error",
    x_ep_disable_all_checks = True,
)

kt_jvm_library(
    name = "package_name",
    srcs = glob(["*.kt"]),
    kotlinc_options = "//:kt_kotlinc_options_for_package_name",
    javac_options = "//:kt_javac_options_for_package_name",
    deps = ["//path/to/dependency"],
)

Kotlin compiler plugins

The kt_compiler_plugin rule allows running Kotlin compiler plugins, such as no-arg, sam-with-receiver and allopen.

For example, you can add allopen to your project like this:

load("//kotlin:kotlin.bzl", "kt_compiler_plugin", "kt_jvm_library")

kt_compiler_plugin(
    name = "open_for_testing_plugin",
    id = "org.jetbrains.kotlin.allopen",
    options = {
        "annotation": "plugin.allopen.OpenForTesting",
    },
    deps = [
        "@com_github_jetbrains_kotlin//:allopen-compiler-plugin",
    ],
)

kt_jvm_library(
    name = "user",
    srcs = ["User.kt"], # The User class is annotated with OpenForTesting
    plugins = [
        ":open_for_testing_plugin",
    ],
    deps = [
        ":open_for_testing", # This contains the annotation (plugin.allopen.OpenForTesting)
    ],
)

Full examples of using compiler plugins can be found here.

Examples

Examples can be found in the examples directory, including usage with Android, Dagger, Node-JS, Kotlin compiler plugins, etc.

History

These rules were initially forked from pubref/rules_kotlin, and then re-forked from bazelbuild/rules_kotlin. They were merged back into this repository in October, 2019.
