KorIO has some tools for accessing the environment.


Supports accessing environment variables, or the JS querystring.

// Uses querystring on JS/Browser, and proper env vars on the rest of the targets
expect object Environment {
	operator fun get(key: String): String?
	fun getAll(): Map<String, String>


Allows accessing java properties and read .properties files.

object SystemProperties : Properties

open class Properties {
    companion object {
        fun parseString(data: String): Properties

    open operator fun contains(key: String): Boolean
    open operator fun get(key: String): String?
    open operator fun set(key: String, value: String): Unit
    open fun setAll(values: Map<String, String>): Unit
    open fun remove(key: String): Unit
    open fun getAll(): Map<String, String> 

suspend fun VfsFile.readProperties(charset: Charset = Charsets.UTF8): Properties


Allows getting information about the current Operating System and Runtime.

object OS {
	val rawName: String
	val rawNameLC: String

	val platformName: String
