Kotlin Multiplatform Mobile plugin for AppCode just got a huge update. We’ve got some exciting news to share with you!
Support for All Kinds of Multiplatform Projects
For a long time, the only supported project model in our plugin was the Gradle DSL with a special iOS/macOS part. Now we support opening Kotlin Multiplatform Mobile projects with regular Xcode projects/workspaces and Kotlin parts configured via CocoaPods:
All of the features are available, such as cross-language refactorings and navigation actions:
This means that now you can use any project format – be it a regular Kotlin Multiplatform project (for example, created via Kotlin Multiplatform Plugin for Android Studio), or a project that uses our custom Gradle DSL. All of them can be opened in AppCode, and we provide the same cross-language code assistance for all of them.
Many of our users asked us to integrate Android-specific IDE features into the plugin, and here they are:
Though the plugin provides reduced functionality compared to Android Studio, we decided to integrate some of the main features:
- SDK and AVD manager
- Layout Editor
- Translation Editor
- Device File Explorer
- APK Analyzer
We hope that these integrations will help you develop your Multiplatform Mobile projects much more quickly and easily.
