Install

JVM

Add the repository:

build.gradle.kts
buildscript {
    repositories {
        maven(url = "https://dl.bintray.com/kodein-framework/Kodein-DB")
    }
}
Kodein-DB will eventually be sync’d with JCenter, when it exits beta.

Then add the dependency:

build.gradle.kts
dependencies {
    implementation("org.kodein.db:kodein-db-jvm:0.4.1-beta")
}
If you are developing a library and not an application, use the artifact org.kodein.db:kodein-db-api-jvm:0.4.1-beta instead, which only provides the Kodein-DB API, and not its implementation.

Furthermore, you need to add the serializer you are going to use. When targetting JVM only, you can use Kryo:

build.gradle.kts
dependencies {
    implementation("org.kodein.db:kodein-db-serializer-kryo-jvm:0.4.1-beta")
}

Finally, if you are targeting a desktop OS, you must add the OS specific leveldb native build dependency:

build.gradle.kts
dependencies {
    implementation("org.kodein.db:kodein-leveldb-jni-jvm-linux:0.4.1-beta")
    //                                                  -linux, -macos or -windows
}
If you are targeting multiple desktop OS, you can use the kodein-leveldb-jni-jvm dependency, which imports all three (Linux, MacOS & Windows) artifacts.

Multiplatform and/or Native (Gradle)

Kodein-DB supports the following targets:
iosArm32, iosArm64, iosX64, linuxX64, macosX64, mingwX64

Kodein-DB uses the new gradle native dependency model featured in Gradle 5.3 and later.

In your build.gradle.kts file, add the repository:

build.gradle.kts
buildscript {
    repositories {
        maven(url = "https://dl.bintray.com/kodein-framework/Kodein-DB")
    }
}
Kodein-DB will eventually be sync’d with JCenter, when it exits beta.

Then add the dependency:

build.gradle
kotlin {
    sourceSets {
        commonMain {
            dependencies {
                implementation("org.kodein.db:kodein-db:0.4.1-beta")
            }
        }
    }
}

Thanks to Gradle Metadata, you don’t need to add any additional dependency to your targets.

If you are developing a library and not an application, use the artifact org.kodein.db:kodein-db-api:0.4.1-beta instead, which only provides the Kodein-DB API, and not its implementation.

Furthermore, you need to add the serializer you are going to use. When targeting Multiplatform, you need to use KotlinX Serialization:

build.gradle
kotlin {
    sourceSets {
        commonMain {
            dependencies {
                implementation("org.kodein.db:kodein-db-serializer-kotlinx:0.4.1-beta")
            }
        }
    }
}
