Kotlin Serialization Converter

A Retrofit 2 Converter.Factory for Kotlin serialization.

Usage

Add a converter factory when building your Retrofit instance using the asConverterFactory extension function:

val contentType = "application/json".toMediaType()
val retrofit = Retrofit.Builder()
    .baseUrl("https://example.com/")
    .addConverterFactory(Json.asConverterFactory(contentType))
    .build()

Response body types (e.g., Call<User>) and @Body types (e.g., @Body user: User) will now use the supplied serializer.

Because Kotlin serialization is so flexible in the types it supports, these converters assume that they can handle all types. If you are mixing this converter with another, you must add this instance last to allow the other converters a chance to see their types.
