    BTW, to get typed declarations for Node.js use https://github.com/Kotlin/kotlinx-nodejs, also, you can just create a project from IntelliJ IDEA Wizard (`Kotlin | Node.js Application`).

    For backend development, I'd recommend using Kotlin/JVM, but of cause, you also, can try Kotlin/JS too and a library with typed declarations for Node.js modules could be helpful in this case https://github.com/Kotlin/kotlinx-nodejs. You can simply create a Kotlin/JS project targeting Node.js from IntelliJ IDEA Wizard (Kotlin | Node.js Application).

    Honestly, we are mostly focused on generic and browser cases. However recently we have introduced a library with typed declarations for Node.js modules check it out: https://github.com/Kotlin/kotlinx-nodejs. We would happy to hear more about your cases and issues you are faced, please feel free to contact me and file issues at https://kotl.in/issue.
