Executing HTTP requests in golang can be used to create an api integration and automate workflows. The standard library “net/http” package can be used to create a request object and the DefaultClient can be used to execute the request. We can expand this basic example to create complex interactions between backend services communicating over HTTP APIs. Playground:

Mastering Go Application Design: HTTP Path Parameters (Part 2)

Part 1 , Part 2 HTTP Api’s often use the url path to identify resource name, id and possibly an action. These parts of the URL path are divided by the / character. Here is an example of using path parameters to implement a key value store where data is saved using the following request GET /set/$key/$value and retrieved using the request GET /get/$key using only the standard library. Go Playground: https://go....

Mastering Go Application Design: HTTP Servers (Part 1)

Part 1 , Part 2 Go is an excellent choice for writing your next http service. It supports multithreaded request handling with the standard library and many other convenient features that makes creating a new application a breeze. Here is an example of a http service that returns the current time as json. Playground:
