Overview of this book

Kotlin is a powerful language that has applications in a wide variety of fields. It is a concise, safe, interoperable, and tool-friendly language. The Android team has also announced first-class support for Kotlin, which is an added boost to the language. Kotlin’s growth is fueled through carefully designed business and technology benefits. The collection of projects demonstrates the versatility of the language and enables you to build standalone applications on your own. You’ll build comprehensive applications using the various features of Kotlin. Scale, performance, and high availability lie at the heart of the projects, and the lessons learned throughout this book. You’ll learn how to build a social media aggregator app that will help you efficiently track various feeds, develop a geospatial webservice with Kotlin and Spring Boot, build responsive web applications with Kotlin, build a REST API for a news feed reader, and build a server-side chat application with Kotlin. It also covers the various libraries and frameworks used in the projects.

Chapter 7. CSV Reader in Kotlin Native

In all the previous chapters, we either used Kotlin on JVM or Kotlin on JS to run our Kotlin code. In this chapter, we will look at Kotlin Native, which is Kotlin without a VM (Virtual Machine) and is supposedly the future of Kotlin, and how to build multiplatform projects. At the end of the chapter, we will create a command-line based CSV reader that prints the unique entries of the column and their count from the specified CSV file (dataset).

In this chapter, you'll learn the following things:

  • What is Kotlin Native?
  • Installing Kotlin Native 
  • Building apps with Kotlin Native
  • What is multiplatform Kotlin?
