Is there a way to build a jira plugin not only on java?

Atlassian SDK has a lot of java tutorials, but there is nothing about creating plugins on other programming languages ​​(not just an API connection, but creating plugins).
Is it possible?

The core language of Jira is Java.  Thus if you would like to create an app (plugin) that will run on Jira you will need to use Java.  The app runs on top of Jira and it's core library's are needed to interact with Jira.  So using the Atlassian SDK and Java will ensure that it will work and run.  If you have a language that can be compiled into Java it might work but I don't know how you would tap into the necessary libraries to make it work.

@vladlensky  to add to @Brant Schroeder  points, if you are building plugin for Jira Cloud, you don't have to limit your self, you can any programming language of your choice.

And in case of Jira Server, you can use language that compiles to JVM, (like Java, Kotlin, or Scala).

Hi @vladlensky ,

if you're planning to start developing for the cloud you can use any language you wish.

We created a free boilerplate using React and Graphql. It might help you to speed things up a bit.

Any feedback is much appreciated! :)
