Hi everyone, been playing with the language some time ago and loved it, now i have an opportunity to write a small microservice in tech stack of my choice, so i planned using kotlin with ktor. Any pitfalls to be specially aware of? Also, what are other libraries/tools or compiler plugins that are must have with kotlin projects (things like linting, any special formatting libraries or something lke that)? Thanks for the help ­čÖé

#server Javalin or vertx would be my preference over ktor The landscape of kotlin backend is quite barren so be aware of that

@asad.awadia just another question, what is the problem with ktor for you? why would you prefer vertx or javalin? like their style more or?

Yes. Style, features, documentation, ecosystem and just all around stability
