It's early days, but I wanted to put this out there to see if there was any interest. I've been working on a web framework that is based on some of the ideas from Node.js and Express. You can find more details here:
There is obviously so much to do. For one, I would love to have a native kotlin template engine, similar to Play Framework’s Scala template engine - currently, Velocity and Freemarker are available instead. Integrating a build system (as described in the runtime section) is also a goal. But for now, I’ve been mostly focused on core middleware functionality (sessions, cookies, etc.).
I’d love to know if anyone else here sees this as a useful project, and if there are any other ideas for what direction to go. Thanks!
