  1. Hi Will, at the section “Accept a form submission POST request”, you can find an example with a form request.

    Here’s a more concrete example:

    package main

    import (

    func postRoute(rw http.ResponseWriter, req *http.Request) {
    body, err := ioutil.ReadAll(req.Body)
    if err != nil {

    // further handle request

    func main() {
    http.HandleFunc(“/postRoute”, postRoute)
    log.Fatal(http.ListenAndServe(“:8080”, nil))

    You can find the Gist here: https://gist.github.com/michielmulders/8c32a6978ec7829865608cd631e83c39

    Hope that helps! 👍

  2. Hello Michiel,

    Thanks for the tutorial. I should say awesome tutorial. It’s the first one that actually works ans is so well explained.

  3. I needed something this simple to get my project started. Thank you so much. Would love to see more small simple examples that takes this further.

  4. Michiel – hard to describe how useful this was! Tutorials on the web just used either handle or handlefunc, leaving it unclear which does what and when to choose one over the other. Reading your article made it very clear.
