Does the world need another cross-platform framework? Tough, here's JetBrains with Compose Multiplatform

Re: Bloat

I use both InteliJ & PyCharm on a 7-year old laptop.

I accept that at launch my laptop's fan kicks in as the IDE re-indexes the code & libraries (More for InteliJ than PyCharm). But that only lasts a second or two and after that, the fan is silent and the IDEs are as fast as I need. e.g. auto-complete suggestions pop up instantly and are intelligent in their suggestions, finds are pretty much instant, etc.

I used to use Eclipse (on the same laptop) and that was glacial in comparison to the JetBrains products.

If it wasn't for the release notes saying "Updated JVM to version <BLAH>" I wouldn't have guessed the products were written in Java.
