Gradle Projects Support

Up until now, you were forced to use CMake projects to develop Kotlin/Native code in CLion. Some of you were using the Gradle task to generate a temporary CMake project instead. We deprecated the CMake support some time ago. The process was tricky and painful. Not anymore! Starting from the 0.8.2 release, you can open your Kotlin/Native Gradle projects directly in CLion, as easily as you would open your Gradle C++ projects with it. There is no need to use our deprecated CMake support anymore.


You can start a new Gradle project with one of the included New Project templates:


Or create an empty settings.gradle.kts file, place sources under src/main/kotlin folder, and create a new build.gradle.kts file with the following content:

Starting from this release, we no longer support CMake for Kotlin/Native projects in CLion.

Have fun with Kotlin/Native!
