// install sdkman (if you haven't already)
curl -s "" | bash  # install sdkman
sdk install maven
sdk install kotlin

// alternatively with homebrew
brew install maven

running the script

You can either use kscript or kotlinc native. I recommend the former. As it stands kscript does some caching which might make your program run a tad bit faster.

// kscript 
sdk install kscript
// or `brew install holgerbrandl/tap/kscript` if you prefer homebrew

kscript -script <my-kts-script>.kts

// if you want to try kotlinc
brew install kotlinc
kotlinc -script list_folders.kts ~

Demos using kotlin as a scripting language

simple shell script to ls your folder

kscript -script list_folders.kts ~

See the accompanying blog post for more details.

  cd /directory/with/csv/file
  kscript /code/path/carrot-wars-tabulate.kts /carrot-wars-results.csv

Note: The first time you run the script it'll look like it's taking forever, thereafter the script runs super fast.
