Well, I was going to attempt a Gemini server using Ktor this morning but Jetbrains have removed plugin support from IDEA Community Edition. I guess I could just use it without the plugin but this has already given me the same bad vibes I got when I had a look at Qt recently.


This was actually a blessing, because I've now investigated Kotlin node.js and have a basic server up and running already. My existing Gemini server is node.js so porting that javascript horror show to Kotlin _should_ be more pleasant, and no need to run the JVM on my server.

@oppen wait does kotlin not need the JVM? Sorry if I'm misunderstanding

@embyr The Kotlin JS framework converts your Kotlin project to JavaScript, so JVM only needed for development in the IDE. The shipped project is all JS.
