I'm just getting started with Kotlin. Does anyone know how good the Android Studio java to kotlin code convertor is?

@ben J2K converter is bundled with Kotlin plug-in, just click Code -> Convert Java file to Kotlin file.

I was wondering how accurate it is. Can I directly convert and not worry about it, or do I have to check everything it generates?

Of course it is not perfect, and converted code can be cleaned up in many places. But, IMO, it's quite accurate and very helpful for learning Kotlin.

@ben Never had a problem with it, sometimes I have to manually edit the syntax a bit but for the most part its great

This is how I learned Kotlin in the first place! Wrote some Java and saw how it looked in K.

Fails a lot when you use rxjava
