Kotlin is a better languge than JS? okay but for real: • ktor offers you a type-safe api • It's very feature rich • You have the same api design for client and server • You can use kotlinx.coroutines which is better than JS's way of doing async functions cons would probably be that the JVM takes more resources than JS but i am not sure on how much resources NodeJS even uses. I still think you shouldn't use JS for server side stuff as it was never designed for it

LOL i cant find any other reasoning why not using KTOR, and since the standard in the industry is use Node + Express it is hard to argue
