I actually like the Kotlin syntax that uses the if/else keywords instead of ?/:
val max = if (a > b) a else b
It's much more readable than the JS syntax.
However, I often use ternary operators in both languages as they are just quick to write und don't mess up the code with an if/else clause.
That's interesting. I didn't know some languages did it that way.
F# does it too.
This is valid in all languages where if else are an expression instead of statement: Python, Rust, Scala, Kotlin, Haskell,F#....
Can you post an example ? I only get syntax error :/
Totally wrong. Statement vs expression. Assignment without mutation.
We're a place where coders share, stay up-to-date and grow their careers.
We strive for transparency and don't collect excess data.
