Recently on my usual #githunt prowl I came across a new promising http library called http4k. The library is based on the philosophy of Application as Function based on the twitter paper Your Server as a Function and promises a lightweight a server toolkit alongwith a very modular approach to adding functionality on top of the core set of capabilities built in. But the best part of all, http4k is written in pure Kotlin and follows a consistent functional approach in handling http services.
