Stars - the number of stars that a project has on GitHub. Growth - month over month growth in stars.
Activity is a relative number indicating how actively a project is being developed. Recent commits have higher weight than older ones.
For example, an activity of 9.0 indicates that a project is amongst the top 10% of the most actively developed projects that we are tracking.
100% Kotlin Twitter Library

I scanned your build.gradle though and it looks like the only possibly tricky thing is the use of fasterxml.jackson. If you decide to support multiplatform, I'd first suggest migrating that dependency to Kotlinx serialization
Looking for an old dependency: org.jetbrains.kotlinx:kotlinx-gradle-serialization-plugin:0.5.1

I tried to find the source and build it locally but the only possible source I could find seems to have a dependency to org.jetbrains.kotlinx:kotlinx-gradle-serialization-plugin as well. So, it's clearly not the right source.
Introduction to Appwrite Cloud Functions with Android and Kotlin

Next, we need to install some dependencies. We need to make Network Requests for that, I'm going to use Ktor HTTP Client and to parse json let's use kotlinx.serialization. If you don't know these libraries, don't worry, I'll explain how they work. To install these dependencies add the following lines to build.gradle.kts -
The Kotlin serialization library v1.3.0 is now available allowing serializing and deserializing Java IO stream! You can now read and write JSON directly to network streams or files. 🎉

Even with this latest streaming support, Kotlin serialization has no support for incremental token-based parsing of huge JSON payloads, for example.

How We integrated Kotlin Multiplatform Into Profi

Move from org.json to kotlinx.serialization and from JodaTime to klock. Some parts had to be moved into the platform-dependent code in the form of expect/actual.

In fact, we already have a widespread compiler plugin -- kotlinx.serialization, that statically "destructures" the serializable class, thus it doesn't need reflection to serialize an object.
The link is broken. It should be https://github.com/Kotlin/kotlinx.serialization/issues/1129
The proguard rules provided kotlinx serialization are pretty strict and prevent obfuscation companion classes. Is there a work around for this . There is a outstanding issue ticket on this(https://github.com/Kotlin/kotlinx.serialization/issue/1129)
A new way to construct objects in Java

SpringFu (from Spring team): https://github.com/spring-projects-experimental/spring-fu/tree/main/jafu

It's mentioned in the article, even though the examples are written in Kotlin spring-fu supports a java-based dsl.1 project | dev.to | 12 Sep 2021
It's possible to remove it anyway, provided you accept to use APIs considered experimental. The solution is Spring Fu, with "Fu" standing for functional. It's available in two flavors, one for Java and one for Kotlin, respectively named JaFu and KoFu.

Longer term : getting rid of kotlin-reflect in Spring Framework by performing Kotlin reflection ahead-of-time and continuing to mature https://github.com/spring-projects-experimental/spring-fu for a more DSL-ish way of configuring Spring Boot are my favorite topics.
There is already a very close collaboration between Kotlin and Spring teams. I think leveraging more multiplatform capabilities and more DSL à la KoFu from https://github.com/spring-projects-experimental/spring-fu could increase Koltin usage on server side long term.
The Modern Java Platform

There's a next stage after annotations. The current thinking is to replace annotations with function calls. It makes more sense if you use Kotlin because Java is a bit verbose when you do this and in Kotlin you get to create nice DSLs. This cuts down on use of reflection and AOP magic that spring relies on and also enables native compilation. It also makes it easier to debug and it makes it much easier to understand what is going on at the price of surprisingly little verbosity. Kofu and Jafu are basically still experimental but work quite nicely https://github.com/spring-projects-experimental/spring-fu/tr...
Another trend is native compilation. Spring native just went into beta (uses the Graal compiler). That still relies on reflection but they re-engineered the internals to be more native friendly.
Spring Boot basically added the notion of autoconfiguring libraries that simply by being on the classpath self configure in a sane way. It's one of those things that makes the experience a bit more ruby on rails like. Stuff just works with minimal coding and you customise it as needed (or not, which is perfectly valid).
Compared to XML configuration, Spring has come a long way. Separating code and configuration is still a good idea with Spring but indeed not strictly enforced. @Configuration classes can take the place of XML and if you use the bean dsl, that's basically the equivalent of using XML. Only it's type checked at compile time and a bit more readable.
