Kotlin/Native is a LLVM backend for the Kotlin compiler, runtime implementation and native code generation facility using LLVM toolchain.Kotlin/Native is primarily designed to allow compilation for platforms where virtual machines are not desirable or possible (such as iOS, embedded targets), or where developer is willing to produce reasonably-sized self-contained program without need to ship an additional execution runtime.

turbo - Turbo is a framework built for LuaJIT 2 to simplify the task of building fast and scalable network applications

  •    Lua

Turbo is a framework built for LuaJIT 2 to simplify the task of building fast and scalable network applications. It uses a event-driven, non-blocking, no thread design to deliver excellent performance and minimal footprint to high-load applications while also providing excellent support for embedded uses. The toolkit can be used for HTTP REST API's, traditional dynamic web pages through templating, open connections like WebSockets, or just as high level building blocks for native speed network applications. First and foremost the framework is aimed at the HTTP(S) protocol. This means web developers and HTTP API developers are the first class citizens. But the framework contains generic nuts and bolts such as; a I/O loop, IO Stream classes, customizeable TCP (with SSL) server classes giving it value for everyone doing any kind of high performance network application. It will also speak directly to your exising C libraries, and happily also create native C struct's for the ultimate memory and CPU performance.

lwjgl3 - LWJGL is a Java library that enables cross-platform access to popular native APIs useful in the development of graphics (OpenGL), audio (OpenAL) and parallel computing (OpenCL) applications

  •    Kotlin

LWJGL ( is a Java library that enables cross-platform access to popular native APIs useful in the development of graphics (OpenGL/Vulkan), audio (OpenAL) and parallel computing (OpenCL) applications. This access is direct and high-performance, yet also wrapped in a type-safe and user-friendly layer, appropriate for the Java ecosystem.LWJGL is an enabling technology and provides low-level access. It is not a framework and does not provide higher-level utilities than what the native libraries expose. As such, novice programmers are encouraged to try one of the frameworks or game engines that make use of LWJGL, before working directly with the library.

KotAcademyPortal - Multiplatform Kotlin application of KotlinAcademy

  •    CSS

This is an example how multiplatform development can be used to effectively extract and reuse logic. It contains multiple clients that implement the same logic and single backend. The only common part for all this project is Data Model, so it is placed in common module which is shared among all the platforms. All client applications are based on MVP (Model-View-Presenter). Presenters are common for all of them and they are placed in common-client module. It contains all business logic and is well tested. Views are implemented separately for every platform. Presenters are using Data Model, and communicating with Views from behind the interfaces that are placed in common-client module. On the other side Presenters are communicating with repositories (network API, databases etc.) which are hidden behind an interfaces (for unit-testing purposes) and specified as an expected declarations which have actial declaration in platform modules (common-client-jvm and common-client-js). Application is composing Kotlin Kotlin Academy and presenting them together. It also allows giving the feedback this article or to Kotlin Academy.

mockk - mocking library for Kotlin

  •    Kotlin

We are actively looking for contributors and co-authors. There are two ambitious goals, that look unachievable at first sight, but in my opinion is essential to win Kotlin competition and require just hard and inventive work. They are - support for Kotlin/JS and Kotlin/Native platforms. If you think you can accept one of this two challenges and join us please contact me. All you need to get started is just to add a dependency to MockK library.

Libev is a high-performance event loop, supporting eight event types (I/O, real time timers, wall clock timers, signals, child status changes, idle, check and prepare handlers). It uses a priority queue to manage timers and uses arrays as fundamental data structure. It has no artificial limitations on the number of watchers waiting for the same event.

collenchyma - Extendable HPC-Framework for CUDA, OpenCL and common CPU

  •    Rust

Collenchyma is an extensible, pluggable, backend-agnostic framework for parallel, high-performance computations on CUDA, OpenCL and common host CPU. It is fast, easy to build and provides an extensible Rust struct to execute operations on almost any machine, even if it does not have CUDA or OpenCL capable devices. Collenchyma's abstracts over the different computation languages (Native, OpenCL, Cuda) and let's you run highly-performant code, thanks to easy parallelization, on servers, desktops or mobiles without the need to adapt your code for the machine you deploy to. Collenchyma does not require OpenCL or Cuda on the machine and automatically falls back to the native host CPU, making your application highly flexible and fast to build.

pyflame - Pyflame: A Ptracing Profiler For Python

  •    C++

Pyflame is a high performance profiling tool that generates flame graphs for Python. Pyflame is implemented in C++, and uses the Linux ptrace(2) system call to collect profiling information. It can take snapshots of the Python call stack without explicit instrumentation, meaning you can profile a program without modifying its source code. Pyflame is capable of profiling embedded Python interpreters like uWSGI. It fully supports profiling multi-threaded Python programs.Pyflame usually introduces significantly less overhead than the builtin profile (or cProfile) modules, and emits richer profiling data. The profiling overhead is low enough that you can use it to profile live processes in production.

Android-FloatingTutorialActivity - A light-weight, easy-to-implement, and easy-to-look-at way to do a tutorial pager or dialog on Android

  •    Kotlin

The goal of this library isn't to confine you to certain UI styles or guidelines that I have made. The goal here is to provide you with a framework that you can build off of yourself. The content of these tutorial pages can be anything you want. That said, I have provided a few examples here, of UIs that have worked well for me and that I think provide a pretty great experience. Note: the library itself is in Kotlin, which is now native to Android. I have created sample applications in both Kotlin and Java. The samples are functionally equivalent. If you would like to see the usage section of this README in Java please head to the Java-flavored README.

VkHLF - Experimental High Level Framework for Vulkan

  •    C++

VkHLF is an experimental high level abstraction library on top of Vulkan. It adds features like transparent suballocation, resource tracking on the CPU & GPU and simplified resource creation while staying as close as possible to the original Vulkan API. In contrast to Vulkan-Hpp, which was carefully designed to be a zero-overhead C++ abstraction for Vulkan, this library adds significant higher-level functionality. Even so, it has been designed for high-performance, but it can cost performance relative to native Vulkan if not employed with the intended usage patterns. All handles and structs which hold handles have been replicated in the vkhlf namespace. For the other structs we simply use Vulkan-Hpp C++ bindings.
