Hi, I'm not too much into Ktor jet (even if I already created one or two projects with it), and just wanted to ask some general question about the idea behind Ktor: (let's ignore the client part for this question): Is Ktor a Framework for HTTP communication only or should it more seen as a generic way of building server applications? So should it also be possible (in the future) e.g. to build a server application listening on RabbitMQ completely independent of HTTP?

The answer should be yes
but it's not high priority for now

You could always use plain ol’ kotlin coroutines without ktor, which would probably be a good fit for most server apps.
