WebListener gives you the option to take advantage of Windows specific features, like support for Windows authentication, port sharing, HTTPS with SNI, HTTP/2 over TLS (Windows 10), direct file transmission, and response caching WebSockets (Windows 8).

I would like to ask you, if you have done any test with it , OR if you can confirm, based on your experience, that it will be possible to use a ServiceStack self-hosted app with Razor and Js front-end, as an UWP application (installed from Windows Store). Something like the example of servicestack gap, (only in this case we will not be able to use server-sent events, because UWP WebView uses the Edge). But I am interested for other applications in UWP.
