Kotlin works with java, you know?
Kotlin is not full developed yet, It needs tools like jdm to work.
I'm not saying that kotlin is not better, but It needs to grow more.
xsacha5241yRecommendation is you can use Kotlin in existing projects. Start with just one file using Kotlin and the rest using Java.
No need to start new project but that works too.
xsacha5241yI mean it is a much easier decision than switching the entire team over to using Kotlin exclusively. You could just use it on new files or where existing files need rewrites. There is no need to replace existing Java files.
It is much easier to integrate in to existing projects than say, Swift in to Obj-C as you can just add the .kt file and away it goes (with appropriate dependency and gradle)
I've been using it for over a year and it is absolutely ready to be used in production. On its own or alongside existing Java doesn't matter.
