Out of curiosity, why isn't
runBlocking
in the standard library? Since you can suspend without kotlinx.coroutines, shouldn't you be able to at least block without it?

Responses to say an http request must be handled by the event loop on the main thread but since that is blocked by
runBlocking
how would that work out ?

Yes, you cannot implement runBlocking on JS to work the same way as on JVM
