Kotlin HTTP Client

Open-source Kotlin projects categorized as HTTP Client

Top 7 Kotlin HTTP Client Projects

  • Fuel

    The easiest HTTP networking library for Kotlin/Android

  • http4k

    The Functional toolkit for Kotlin HTTP applications. http4k provides a simple and uniform way to serve, consume, and test HTTP services.

    Project mention: What's the state of server-side frameworks with Kotlin support today for small teams? | /r/Kotlin | 2023-04-17

    You named Express as an example for a good framework - I'd say both http4k and ktor come close to it. Spring Boot would really be on the other end and I met lots of JS/TS devs that didn't even want to touch it. I did have the same impression than you though: Documentation for ktor is not great at all.

  • Appwrite

    Appwrite - The open-source backend cloud platform. Add Auth, Databases, Functions, and Storage to your product and build any application at any scale while using your preferred coding languages and tools.

  • Ktorfit

    HTTP client generator / KSP plugin for Kotlin Multiplatform (Android, iOS, Js, Jvm, Native) using KSP and Ktor clients inspired by Retrofit https://foso.github.io/Ktorfit

    Project mention: Ktor or Retrofit? | /r/androiddev | 2022-12-16

    I'm going to hit you with a "it depends" though whether to use ktor or retrofit. If there is any part of you that thinks you're going to support multiplatform, then ktor with no discussion. Retrofit has come out and said that's not on their road map. There is another option called ktorfit which from the name you can guess is like retrofit but built on top of ktor to support multiplatform.

  • HTTP-Shortcuts

    Android app to create home screen shortcuts that trigger arbitrary HTTP requests

    Project mention: Toggle devices with home screen widget? | /r/googlehome | 2023-03-01

    I use https://http-shortcuts.rmy.ch/ and https://www.home-assistant.io/ to accomplish exactly this but that's a fair amount of setup alongside Google home and requires another running computer for the home assistant application.

  • kohttp

    Kotlin DSL http client

  • Android Snooper

    Android library to record the network calls through the interceptor mechanism of the http clients.

  • http-request-kotlin

    🌐 A tiny http client for Kotlin/Android. Only 90 lines of code.
