:mailbox: RESTful Primitives Library

GitHub Repository

GoDoc CI Status

Package res provides handy primitives for working with JSON in Go HTTP servers and clients via go-chi/render. It is designed to be lightweight and easy to extend.

I originally wrote something similar to this in two UBC Launch Pad projects that I worked on - Inertia and Pinpoint - and felt like it might be useful to have it as a standalone package.

Here’s a quick overview:

Clientside

import "github.com/bobheadxi/res"

func main() {
  resp, err := http.Get(os.Getenv("URL"))
  if err != nil {
    log.Fatal(err)
  }
  var info string
  b, err := res.Unmarshal(resp.Body, res.KV{Key: "info", Value: &info})
  if err != nil {
    log.Fatal(err)
  }
  if err := b.Error(); err != nil {
    log.Fatal(err)
  }
  println(info)
}

Serverside

import "github.com/bobheadxi/res"

func Handler(w http.ResponseWriter, r *http.Request) {
  res.R(w, r, res.MsgOK("hello world!",
    "stuff", "amazing",
    "details", res.M{"world": "hello"}))
}
