A small wrapper for the Kotlin compiler that can be used to execute .kts scripts inspired by gradlew and similar wrappers that download the actual binaries. More information regarding .kts scripts can be found here.

Build instructions

Call gradlew build. This will generate a minified jar with all dependencies and a launch script for Windows. Contributions for a Linux launch script are welcome.


After building the minified jar, on Windows use the launch script and call kotlinw myScript.kts. On any other platform, call java -jar kotlinw-minified-1.0-SNAPSHOT.jar myScript.kts. This will download the latest version of the Kotlin compiler and the stdlib and will execute your script.
