Fork me on GitHub

As usual from time to time I try a different language and as usual I look for web dev, find ktor, get a minimal example running and the first thing I want is hot code reloading. Ups, there is none 😄


Jeez, everytime such a dissapointment


Although it seems to work for simple methods (there is an option to reload changed classes) it does not work for changed routes, for instance.


Ok, I have to take a step back, it seems like there is a development configuration possible, just have to get it working somehow


Got it working, well, thats a start 🙂


hot reloading for me isn’t a deal breaker. the only place I really want it is in the browser, but these days I’m not doing much FE development. There were times hot reloading cost me some serious pain in production.
