Why only
headers.append
have a method with
HeaderValueWithParameters
as second parameter and other
append*
don't? If only
append
should have this, then this doc needs to be fixed: https://api.ktor.io/ktor-client/ktor-client-core/io.ktor.client.plugins/-default-request/index.html (see "usage" box).

In the
append(name: String, value: HeaderValueWithParameters)
the
append(name, value.toString())
is called so you can use the
toString
method in your code:
Copy code
val headers = HeadersBuilder()
headers.append("", ContentType("application", "json"))
headers.appendIfNameAbsent("", ContentType("application", "json").toString())
Feel free to file a feature request if you think that having those overloads is necessary in Ktor.

Thanks Aleksei, was just wondering whether this was intentional. Please fix the linked doc then.

I’ve created an issue to address the problem with a compilation error.
