A language workbench for anyone.

Dialector provides a series of libraries designed to simplify development of language servers & other language tooling.

Consumer Quick Start (For Kotlin projects using Gradle)

Add dialector-kt and dialector-kt-processor to your dependencies:

val dialectorVersion = "0.2.0
dependencies {

Add the Kotlin Symbol Processor (KSP) plugin to your gradle build

plugins {
    kotlin("jvm") version("1.7.10")
    id("") version("1.7.10-1.0.6") // Be sure to use a KSP version that is compatible with your Kotlin version!!

Add KSP configuration to set the output package for your generated code

ksp {
    arg("dev.dialector.targetPackage", "org.example.output") // Replace "org.example.output" with a package relevant to your project

If you are using IntelliJ, add the following to ensure your generated code is indexed:


At this point, you can start using Dialector! Running a gradle build will generate sources and include them in compilation automatically. A more thorough introduction of how Dialector works and common use cases will be provided soon.
