Getting started with Kotlin using AJAX

Hello to all, this is my first post in this forum.

I have java and android experiences but got interested in kotlin only a few days ago. I really don’t linke writing javascript code, so i was happy to see that there is a new language like kotlin, that can compile to javascript.

Anyway, i already understand the basic syntax of kotlin, but have problems getting deeper into it, because i don’t find many kotlin tutorials. Right now i just want to experiment with kotlin by writting a simple programm with a kotin/javascript client that can receive json from a kotlin server (hoping to be able to use the same dto in for the server and the client). But i already stuck at the beginning, because i don’t find any example how to send an AJAX request to the server.

Thanks in advance for any help.

@native class XMLHttpRequest
fun main(args: Array<String>) {
 var xhttp :dynamic= XMLHttpRequest();"GET", "", true);

You can find simple example here, but it using jquery for requests instead of pure XMLHttpRequest
