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:
- 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-jdkThis command will install the latest version of the JDK, which is currently JDK 17.
- 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 kotlinThis command will install the latest version of Kotlin on your Termux.
- 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
- Compile your Kotlin code: To compile your Kotlin code, you need to use the
kotlinccommand, which is the Kotlin compiler. Run the following command to compile your code:phpCopy code
kotlinc <filename>.kt -include-runtime -d <filename>.jarReplace
<filename>with the name of your Kotlin file without the extension. For example, if your Kotlin file is called, you would replace
MyCode.This command compiles your Kotlin code and generates a JAR file, which is a Java archive file that contains your compiled code.
- Run your compiled Kotlin code: To run your compiled Kotlin code, you can use the
javacommand. Run the following command to run your code:phpCopy code
java -jar <filename>.jarReplace
<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
And that’s it! With these steps, you can compile and run your Kotlin code from Termux.
