RealWorld spec and APIKotlin + Javalin codebase containing real world examples (CRUD, auth, advanced patterns, etc) that adheres to the
This codebase was created to demonstrate a fully fledged fullstack application built with Kotlin + Javalin + Koin + Exposed including CRUD operations, authentication, routing, pagination, and more.
We've gone to great lengths to adhere to the Kotlin + Javalin community styleguides & best practices.
For more information on how to this works with other frontends/backends, head over to the RealWorld repo.
How it works
The application was made mainly to demo the functionality of Javalin framework 71.
The application was built with:
- Kotlin as programming language
- Javalin as web framework
- Koin as dependency injection framework
- Jackson as data bind serialization/deserialization
- Java-jwt for JWT spec implementation
- HikariCP as datasource to abstract driver implementation
- H2 as database
- Exposed as Sql framework to persistence layer
+ config/ All app setups. Javalin, Koin and Database + domain/ + repository/ Persistence layer and tables definition + service/ Logic layer and transformation data + ext/ Extension of String for email validation + utils/ Jwt and Encrypt classes + web/ + controllers Classes and methods to mapping actions of routes Router definition to features and exceptions - App.kt <- The main class
It uses a H2 in memory database (for now), can be changed easily in the
koin.properties for any other database.
You'll need to add the correct dependency for the needed
You need just JVM installed.
The server is configured to start on 7000 with
api context, but you can change in
./gradlew clean build
Start the server:
Execute tests and start the server:
./gradlew run & APIURL=http://localhost:7000/api ./spec-api/run-api-tests.sh
