Hi Dawn & David Griffiths,

I see Kotlin is big in the Android world now. How is it doing in web development? Are there any popular web frameworks for Kotlin?

Thanks!

Hello Carl,

That's a great question. Kotlin can be used with any of the major Java frameworks, so there's Spring is still a popular choice. Spring 5.0 introduced extensions that allow for more idiomatic Kotlin code and is proving popular.

Once of the most interesting innovations to come from the Kotlin community is the Ktor framework. This is an asynchronous framework that has a number of similarities with Node. You can find an introductory tutorial to Ktor here:

https://ktor.io/quickstart/guides/application.html

We believe Ktor will really be a framework to watch in the future. It really uses the power of Kotlin to create scalable, efficient applications.

Thanks for the question :-)
