Hey all! New to this space 🙂 I’m learning Kotlin with a PHP / Laravel background. Covered the basics and these make sense. As a next step, I’m looking into Ktor and Exposed. This tutorial helped me with Ktor: Next step would be to include Exposed in there as well, using their getting started: Coming from a different background, I feel I miss some background on the installation process and frameworks so feeling a little lost there. It’s hard to assess resources I found, as they refer to different Kotlin/Ktor versions and I’m not so sure what’s still up to date (enough) and what is not. Any tips on what I could read into to get a better grasp? TL;DR: how can I properly install Exposed in Ktor?
