The .java and .fxml files are displayed in the new clone, but nothing besides those are.

Did you "import existing project" in Eclipse, or did you try to open the repo folder as a project?

If the latter, maybe delete the project in Eclipse, and try File, Import, Existing project into workspace.

(There could be other issues instead -- this is just what pops to mind.)

The issue ended up being that I was importing the entire project, rather than a specific folder within the project folder, so now it works. I imported an unspecific folder, if that makes sense.

This happens to me sometimes too. It helps to give eclipse a few minutes to think about the files then refresh the folder a few times. If that doesn't work, I'll just delete the whole thing and re-clone it again. It usually works for me by the second time through the whole process.
