Classyshark Bytecode Viewer
Download & Run
To run, grab the latest JAR
java -jar classyshark-bytecode-viewer.jar. Optionally you can add a class file to open.
Instantaneously understand and assess any Kotlin code.
The most accurate and measurable way is to look at Kotlin generated executable (.class) files, the same files that both JVM and Android DX tool see.
From every kotlin-compiler generated class file you will see 3 tabs:
- Equivalent Java code
- Equivalent Java bytecode
- Hex view
The (mind) flow will be as follows:
- From Kotlin code to Java code
- From Java code to Java bytecode (class format)
- From Java bytecode to hex view (raw binary format)
Here is the tricky part, instead of doing source to source translation from Kotlin to Java, it is better (faster and accurate) to decompile Kotlin generated class file right into Java.
To support the above the we use the following 2 libraries:
- Procyon- an open source Java decompiler.
- ASM - the best Java bytecode reading library (used both by Kotlin and Android Studio).
