(Kotlin) Backend Internal error: Exception during code generation

I am creating a very thorough converter for Android with Kotlin, using the latest Android Studio Canary build and latest Kotlin. I am suddenly getting a compiling error, even thought Android Studio doesn’t see any bug in the code, it is complaining about a backend error, so I think my project is good but the Android Studio has a bug?? Please help confirm, this has been a lot of work….

It is complaining about my class MassCalc, which is 6500 lines long, because of many cases for conversion, so maybe that is the problem??

UPDATE The error does not occur when hitting Clean project or Rebuild Project, it occurs when I try to launch it in the emulator!

Very simple code but long file:

https://github.com/Josep-Jesus-Bigorra-Algaba/SuperConverterAndroid

I am experienced with Java but had never seen this exception!

e: java.lang.IllegalStateException: Backend Internal error: Exception during code generation

Any help will be greatly appreciated! Edit: I work from macOS High Sierra but am downloading Linux Mint and will probably try in that to see if the issue persists!

Answer

I had the same problem, because I was using inconsistent version of Anko. With kotlin 1.3.x you have to use this v0.10.8 version of anko or newer.
