    Project mention: Is Alamofire the industry standard or does your company handle networking differently? | reddit.com/r/iOSProgramming | 2021-01-24

    AlamoFire doesn’t support background configurations. Makes it impossible for my company to use AlamoFire for the one part of the app where it’d be useful as we support uploading/downloading unlimited numbers of files at a time (data driven app with offline support). If you’re downloading/uploading 10GB of data, you don’t want to be stuck sitting in an app waiting for it to finish... I’d be shocked if it’s an industry standard with such an important core feature missing.

    Project mention: The Kotlin Foundation – By Jetbrains and Google | news.ycombinator.com | 2021-02-13

    Java developers are spoiled for choice.

    There's everything, from the simplest possible https://sparkjava.com/, to the a little bit nicer https://javalin.io/ (which has a Kotlin wrapper), to the high performance and full framework https://vertx.io/ (which always had great multi-lingual support within the JVM), to the newer and GraalVM-friendly https://micronaut.io/ and https://quarkus.io/ ... for the Enterprise-only crowd, you still have the JEE successor, https://jakarta.ee/ and Oracle's own https://helidon.io/#/ (which likes to position itself as microservice focused, like Micronaut and Quarkus). Not to mention lower level libraries you can use, like https://www.eclipse.org/jetty/ and https://netty.io/.

    Ktor has a tough fight to become dominant even in the Kotlin world.

    Spring Boot is, still, definitely the most popular option, but it's still just one of very very many!

    I went with fasthttp, which provides high performance, zero memory allocations in hot paths and Up to 10x faster than net/http for a large throughput service. Go provides out of the box http support but for a beginner, it felt much easier to go with a framework, thereby ended up using fiber.
