Available Layers » lang#kotlin


This layer adds Kotlin language support to SpaceVim.



To use this configuration layer, update your custom configuration file with:

  name = "lang#kotlin"

To enable language server protocol, you need to install:

Layer options

When native support is enabled, the code runner will use kotlinc-native, otherwise it will use kotlinc-jvm.

Key bindings

Inferior REPL process

Start a kotlinc-jvm inferior REPL process with SPC l s i.

Send code to inferior process commands:

Key Bindings Descriptions
SPC l s b send buffer and keep code buffer focused
SPC l s l send line and keep code buffer focused
SPC l s s send selection text and keep code buffer focused

Running current file

To run the current file, you can press SPC l r to run the current file without losing focus, and the result will be shown in a runner buffer.

Language Server Protocol

To enable lsp support for kotlin, you need to load the lsp layer, and include kotlin filetype:

  name = 'lsp'
  filetypes = [

The default language server command for kotlin is kotlin-language-server. If the language server command is not in your $PATH, you can override the kotlin language server command via:

  name = 'lsp'
  filetypes = [
    kotlin = ['path/to/kotlin-language-server']
