Hi there! I have a question about Ktor. Was it intended as a techdemo only? I've read on reddit that some people think that it was not meant for production use. Is this true?

It's supposed to be both. It's a big example Kotlin project and it is used it production.

Out of curiosity, where did you get the idea that is was just a techdemo? (I've seen the question pop up a few times)

It would be strange if so many JetBrains resources would be working on a "techdemo" Web-framework))

i agree!
and it doesn't look like a techdemo either
it was just weird to read that
do you want me to link the convo?
so that you can reply?

I mean, there are still plenty of people who think Kotlin doesn’t exist outside of Android even though that’s flatly false ¯\_(ツ)_/¯. I wouldn’t recommend taking the terse opinion of some random edgelord on the internet very seriously

I just wanted to hear a professional opinion before forming my own
just to make sure that i'm not living under a rock
i've been using Kotlin in production for the last 3 years
and i haven't programmed for android since 2.3
which was like 10 years ago 😂

so I know that there is much more to it than Android

We’ve built JetBrains Space on Ktor (https://www.jetbrains.com/space) and we’re committed to Ktor. We’re in this for the long run.

Also, TBH with you, the best radar is your own radar (Even ThoughtWorks says that). For good or bad, I evaluate radars for what they are - certain people’s opinions based also on their own experience and interests.

I’ve followed up on the thread also.
