How to compile kotlin from termux

Compiling Kotlin code from Termux is relatively straightforward, and there are a few steps you need to follow to do it successfully. Here’s a step-by-step guide to compiling Kotlin from Termux:

  1. Install the JDK: First, you’ll need to install the Java Development Kit (JDK) in Termux. You can do this by running the following command: pkg install openjdk-17-jdk This command will install the latest version of the JDK, which is currently JDK 17.
  2. Install Kotlin: Once you have the JDK installed, you can proceed to install Kotlin. You can install Kotlin by running the following command: pkg install kotlin This command will install the latest version of Kotlin on your Termux.
  3. Write your Kotlin code: Now that you have Kotlin installed, you can write your Kotlin code using your preferred text editor or integrated development environment (IDE). You can save your code with the .kt extension.
  4. Compile your Kotlin code: To compile your Kotlin code, you need to use the kotlinc command, which is the Kotlin compiler. Run the following command to compile your code:phpCopy codekotlinc <filename>.kt -include-runtime -d <filename>.jar Replace <filename> with the name of your Kotlin file without the extension. For example, if your Kotlin file is called, you would replace <filename> it with MyCode.This command compiles your Kotlin code and generates a JAR file, which is a Java archive file that contains your compiled code.
  5. Run your compiled Kotlin code: To run your compiled Kotlin code, you can use the java command. Run the following command to run your code:phpCopy codejava -jar <filename>.jar Replace <filename> with the name of the JAR file that was generated when you compiled your Kotlin code. For example, if your JAR file is called, you would replace <filename> it with MyCode.

And that’s it! With these steps, you can compile and run your Kotlin code from Termux.
