GoWeb is a simple Go web framework that aims to only use the standard library. The overall file structure and development flow is inspired by larger frameworks like Laravel. It is partially ready for smaller projects if you are fine with getting your hands dirty, but I plan on having it ready to go for more serious projects when it hits version 2.0.
Current features 🚀
- Simple database migration system
- Built in REST client
- CSRF protection
- Minimal user login/registration + sessions
- Config file handling
- Scheduled tasks
- Entire website compiles into a single binary (~10mb) (excluding env.json)
- Minimal dependencies (just standard library, postgres driver, and experimental package for bcrypt)
When to use 🙂
- You need to build a dynamic web application with persistent data
- You need to build a dynamic website using Go and need a good starting point
- You need to build an API in Go and don't know where to start
- Pretty much any use-case where you would use Laravel, Django, or Flask
When not to use 🙃
- You need a static website (see Hugo)
- You need a simple blog (see Hugo)
- You need a simple site for your projects' documentation (see Hugo)
How to use 🤔
- Delete the git folder, so you can start tracking in your own repo
go getto install dependencies
- Copy env_example.json to env.json and fill in the values
go run main.goto start the server
- Rename the occurences of "GoWeb" to your app name
- Start building your app!
- When you see useful changes to GoWeb you'd like in your project copy them over
