Kotlin's plugin for CLion depends on the built-in java module


I'm building a plugin for kotlin native projects (https://github.com/raniejade/godot-kotlin/tree/master/godot-kotlin-idea-plugin) and wanted to make that plugin available in CLion. However I'm getting stuck with this error when building for clion.

e: Supertypes of the following classes cannot be resolved. Please make sure you have the required dependencies in the classpath:
class org.jetbrains.kotlin.psi.KtProperty, unresolved supertypes: com.intellij.psi.PsiModifiableCodeBlock
class org.jetbrains.kotlin.psi.KtNamedFunction, unresolved supertypes: com.intellij.psi.PsiModifiableCodeBlock

I've solved this problem when building for IntelliJ IDEA by adding the built-in plugin java. The same fix does not work when I'm building for CLion (I'm using the dependency org.jetbrains.kotlin.native.clion instead of org.jetbrains.kotlin here).


Hi Ranie,

CLion has no java module bundled - it is not possible to refer to its classes for now, sorry.


That's very unfortunate but totally understandable. Are there plans to make the kotlin plugin not depend on the java plugin?


I've asked CLion team regarding that and got the following information:

In Kotlin/Native plugin for CLion we are using https://plugins.jetbrains.com/plugin/12665-kotlin-native-platform-dependencies — this plugin includes java module inside.

I think that this is something that you're looking for.


That actually solved my problem, thanks!!
