A barebones Kotlin and Ktor app, which can easily be deployed to Heroku.

This application supports the Getting Started with Java on Heroku article - check it out.

Deploy to Heroku

Running Locally

Make sure you have Java and Maven installed. Also, install the Heroku Toolbelt.

$ git clone https://github.com/orangy/ktor-heroku-start.git
$ cd ktor-heroku-start
$ mvn install
$ heroku local:start

Your app should now be running on localhost:5000.

If you're going to use a database, ensure you have a local .env file that reads something like this:

DATABASE_URL=postgres://localhost:5432/java_database_name

Deploying to Heroku

$ heroku create
$ git push heroku master
$ heroku open
