How do I write static methods in Kotlin?

When I was starting to write Kotlin code, and one problem I faced was how the heck do I do static methods like I can add in Java?

The solution… The companion object in your Kotlin class.

class MyClass() {
  companion object {
    fun myStaticMethod() {
      //Do Stuff Here
    }
  }
}

Accessing this static method via Kotlin:

MyClass.myStaticMethod()

Accessing this static method via Java:

MyClass.Companion.myStaticMethod()

To avoid having to use the “.Companion” syntax, use the @JvmStatic annotation, allowing you to access the method without “.Companion”:

class MyClass() {
  companion object {
    @JvmStatic
    fun myStaticMethod() {
      //Do Stuff Here
    }
  }
}

Accessing this static method via Java and @JvmStatic:

MyClass.myStaticMethod()
