Hello, I am using a Ktor client with the Json feature to receive some Json objects, but I also need to access the response headers. I can see them if I get the HttpResponse object, but then I don't have my deserialized Json object. How do I retrieve both the Json object and the response headers?

What is the usecase? Do you need to handle the headers at the same place as where you handle the response body? Because otherwise you could use an interceptor/feature to first handle headers.

just tried here and you should be able to do something like
suspend fun fetchPeople(): AstroResult {
    val response = client.get<HttpResponse>("$baseUrl/astros.json")
    val headers = response.headers
    val data = response.receive<AstroResult>()
    return data
