Build Status

This is my boilerplate for a go HTTP server, designed to be a starting point template for new projects, with most things conveniently stubbed out and ready for simple and fast customization, with sane defaults.

Many ideas are taken from Mat Ryer's talk titled "How I Write HTTP Web Services after Eight Years" at GopherCon 2019, seen here:

Features

  • Basic logging middleware
  • Stub Authentication middleware
  • Helper functions for encoding/decoding json
  • Healthcheck route
  • Prometheus metrics endpoint
  • No global state of our own
    • some deps have some, such as the metrics collector and Sentry

Design Decisions

Pending Design Decisions

  • database: TBD (thinking about go-gorm/gorm)
  • templating: TBD (suggestions welcome)

TODO

  • Basic HTML Templates
  • Database Boilerplate
  • Sessions Middleware
  • sync.Once example for re-compiling templates
  • Bundling static assets into binary

Known Bugs (more TODO)

  • Chi recovery middleware logs non-json when in non-tty stdout mode, breaking validity of stdout as a json stream
