Is this not maintened?
The version is 8 month old and it crashes instantly when trying to compile or open a .kt file...
I wanted to try Kotlin, but I don't want to be dependant on Jetbrains for it.

It works with a new Eclipse Version. It doesn't work with "Eclipse Java Development Tools Version: 3.18.900.v20210906-0500", and it works with Eclipse IDE for Java Developers Version: 2021-06 (4.20.0) Build id: 20210612-2011

I guess it's not completely abandoned (yet). The just released new version 1.5.31 fixes the StackOverflowError.
But editing Kotlin Scripts is still impossible because the Jetbrains Youtrack-Issue KE-360 still exists leading to the error: "Cannot access script base class 'org.jetbrains.kotlin.core.script.template.ProjectScriptTemplate'
This happens with Gradle Build Scripts in Kotlin as well as with a new Kotlin Project and new Kotlin Script in it.

Can you please update this plugin? Why is it even abandoned? If we want to use Kotlin we have to go with IntelliJ? This sucks guys.. please update your stuff.

I agree with this on the highest level. Honestly i really dont understand why Kotlin is being used more now over Groovy. Its makes things so much more complicated

Gradle projects with Kotlin plugin do not get configured properly after Import or Refresh:
* Project Nature is not set correctly on Import
* Project and Classpath files are left in an invalid state after Refresh (Need to Remove and Re-Add Kotlin Nature).
Some other things that don't function as expected:
* Launchers for SpringBoot Applications throw errors about not finding the type
* Open Declaration (F3) doesn't work for mixed Kotlin/Java
* Changing the Kotlin Compiler JVM target version from the default 1.6 breaks the preference page if you don't fill in the JDK Home. Need to uninstall and reinstall to reset it.

I've spent the last few hours fighting with this plugin. The problem I am having was reported 3 years ago and people are still using unofficial hacks from forum posts to get code deployed to tomcat. The recommended solution is "Buy and use IntelliJ".
Maven works, and the kotlin and java code compile and work correctly when using maven only. I have confirmed this by deploying to a tomcat installation outside eclipse.
So it seems the Kotlin dev team do not care about this plugin (integration was nowhere near as seamless as it is with IntelliJ), and It seems like Kotlin is treated as a second class citizen on everything but IntellliJ/Android Studio, in an attempt to get more sales.
I will be reverting to Java

Run away! The plugin is crap and in general Kotlin is crap nothing works just the eyecandy features forget about java interopability and many more promise

Trying to install produces a popup with the message:

If this plugin is unsigned, how can we verify that what we download and run is safe?

Kotlin plugin for Eclipse is currently painful to use. If you try to use it in a mixed Java, Xtend, Kotlin project setup, it barely works and constantly throws 'Analysis Error'. Further, unit testing is completely busted as tests are not compiled for Eclipse and you get constant ClassNotFoundExceptions.

I have the same issue and I can't downgrade Eclipse for other reasons. I've filed https://youtrack.jetbrains.com/issue/KE-353 to track this, hope to have some feedback quickly. I suggest you comment there, as it's more visible to the Kotlin team!
Submitted by Giuseppe Miscione on Mon, 2019-10-07 03:11
The published version of this plugin is not yet compatible with the lastest version of Eclipse, ence it's filtered out from searches in the marketplace.
To solve the problem, try using the previous version of Eclipse.

i´m doing a spring-boot project with kotlin, and in the main class runApplication it show me the error:
Cannot inline bytecode built with JVM target 1.8 into bytecode that is being built with JVM target 1.6. Please specify proper '-jvm-target' option
But in Project Properties >> Kotlin Compiler >> JMV target version the option 1.8 is selected. And the project runs without problem

On a clean install of Eclipse 2018-12, in a brand new workspace, I installed the Kotlin plugin and then I created a Kotlin project. When I open a .kt file, the editor fails to startup with the following error:
org.eclipse.core.runtime.CoreException: Plug-in org.jetbrains.kotlin.ui was unable to load class org.jetbrains.kotlin.ui.editors.KotlinFileEditor.
I tried this on a kotin project created from the "New" wizard and also on new maven project to which I added the kotlin nature.

Hello, a kotlin file is displaying an error marker with message
'when' expression must be exhaustive, add necessary 'BOOLEAN', 'DATE', 'NUMBER', 'STRING', 'TIMESTAMP' branches or 'else' branch instead
but this wrong as I have a case for each branches. The only way to have the error gone is to add an else branch, but this is wrong because if I add an enum value, I will not have error (because of the else) and I could miss to write proper branch for the new value.
By the way do you have some bug tracking system, where we could raised issues on the plugin ?

Yes, we use the same bugtacker as for Kotlin project: https://youtrack.jetbrains.com/issues/KT

+1 I have a Java 9 platform requirement, and apparently can't run Kotlin on Eclipse (Oxygen.2) using the current Kotlin plugin. Code works with Kotlin plugin on Java 8, crashes on 9. Last plugin update shows 3/2017 -- please update, or at least provide ETA for 1.2 support. Thanks!
Is it possible to create a multi-platform project (MPP) with Eclipse Oxygen (latest release)? I cannot achieve to create a multi-platform-project as described in the Kotlin Language reference. It is possible to do that in IntelliJ IDEA 2017.3 EAP.
Will MPP support be available in the future?
Submitted by JB JetBrains on Thu, 2017-11-30 11:14
No, currently you can't create MPP projects in the Eclipse plugin, they will be available later
