Development Workflow

To run the application with Gradle continuous build, enter:

./gradlew -t run                                    (on Linux)
gradlew.bat -t run                                  (on Windows)

After Gradle finishes downloading dependencies and building the application, open http://localhost:3000/ in your favorite browser.

If you are working with a fullstack project, the tasks names are different. Please check this chapter for details.

You can import the project in IntelliJ IDEA and open src/jsMain/kotlin/com/example/App.kt file. You can of course use your favorite text editor.

Add some code inside the start function:

override fun start() {
    // ...
    root("kvapp") {
        span("Hello world!")

You should see your changes immediately in the browser.

It's recommended to use Gradle from a command line (in a terminal window).
