Discussion on: Q: How Much of "the Kotlin Way" Is the Right Way?

You're right, however I don't think we'd have any of these libraries in Java since that's not an idiomatic way of writing Java.

Ultimately what I meant is that what Kotlin brought to the JVM was another way of writing code that was compatible with the huge amount of libraries that exists in the ecosystem; and of course when people realised that they can write libraries taking advantage of some features of the language that makes thing easier, they'd do it.

Maybe a better example of this are Anko or Koin since both are libraries that feature a DSL built on top of Kotlin.
