    port: Int = 80,
    host: String = "0.0.0.0",
    watchPaths: List<String> = emptyList(),
    parentCoroutineContext: <ERROR CLASS> = EmptyCoroutineContext,
    configure: TConfiguration.() -> Unit = {},
    module: Application.() -> Unit
): TEngine

Creates an embedded server with the given factory, listening on host:port

httpServer

fun CoroutineScope.httpServer(
    settings: HttpServerSettings,
    handler: HttpRequestHandler
): HttpServer

Start an http server with settings invoking handler for every request

parseMultipart

fun CoroutineScope.parseMultipart(
    input: ByteReadChannel,
    headers: HttpHeadersMap
): ReceiveChannel<MultipartEvent>
fun CoroutineScope.parseMultipart(
    input: ByteReadChannel,
    contentType: CharSequence,
    contentLength: Long?
): ReceiveChannel<MultipartEvent>
fun CoroutineScope.parseMultipart(
    boundaryPrefixed: ByteBuffer,
    input: ByteReadChannel,
    totalLength: Long?
): ReceiveChannel<MultipartEvent>

Starts a multipart parser coroutine producing multipart events

pinger

fun CoroutineScope.pinger(
    outgoing: SendChannel<Frame>,
    period: Duration,
    timeout: Duration,
    pool: ObjectPool<ByteBuffer> = KtorDefaultPool
): SendChannel<Pong>

Launch pinger coroutine on CoroutineScope that is sending ping every specified period to outgoing channel, waiting for and verifying client’s pong frames. It is also handling timeout and sending timeout close frame

fun CoroutineScope.pinger(
    outgoing: SendChannel<Frame>,
    periodMillis: Long,
    timeoutMillis: Long,
    pool: ObjectPool<ByteBuffer> = KtorDefaultPool
): SendChannel<Pong>

Launch pinger coroutine on CoroutineScope that is sending ping every specified periodMillis to outgoing channel, waiting for and verifying client’s pong frames. It is also handling timeoutMillis and sending timeout close frame

ponger

fun CoroutineScope.ponger(
    outgoing: SendChannel<Pong>,
    pool: ObjectPool<ByteBuffer> = KtorDefaultPool
): SendChannel<Ping>

Launch a ponger actor job on the CoroutineScope sending pongs to outgoing channel. It is acting for every client’s ping frame and replying with corresponding pong

startConnectionPipeline

fun CoroutineScope.startConnectionPipeline(
    input: ByteReadChannel,
    output: ByteWriteChannel,
    timeout: WeakTimeoutQueue,
    handler: HttpRequestHandler
): Job

Start connection HTTP pipeline invoking handler for every request. Note that handler could be invoked multiple times concurrently due to HTTP pipeline nature

fun CoroutineScope.writeMultipleRanges(
    channelProducer: (LongRange) -> ByteReadChannel,
    ranges: List<LongRange>,
    fullLength: Long?,
    boundary: String,
    contentType: String
): ByteReadChannel

Start multirange response writer coroutine
