    Goals • Create a high level web-framework for Go, like

    Django for Python or Rails for Ruby • Be Go-ish • Don’t make stuff more complicated than it has to be • Convention over configuration • Easy setup and deployment Mittwoch, 14. November 12
  2. 3.

    Current status • In development for over a year •

    Work sponsored by STARTeurope • Used in production for http://startuplive.in • Go v1.0 Mittwoch, 14. November 12
  3. 4.

    What’s in it? • MVC • Prefer Go syntax to

    template languages • HTML5 Boilerplate out of the box • MongoDB • All batteries included Mittwoch, 14. November 12
  4. 5.

    All batteries included • HTML5 Boilerplate • jQuery • External

    dependencies fetched automatically: go get -u github.com/ungerik/go-start Mittwoch, 14. November 12
  5. 7.

    Philosophy • Why learn another template language if you can

    use Go syntax? • DOM tree has a 1:1 Go object representation on the server • Every element has an ID to enable sync of DOM tree and server view representation Mittwoch, 14. November 12

    But I ended up using them only for the HTML5

    Boilerplate Page template Mittwoch, 14. November 12

    view := DynamicView( ! func(ctx *Context) (View, error) { !

    ! if ctx.Request.RequestURI == "/" { ! ! ! // return nil, so nothing will be rendered ! ! ! return nil, nil ! ! } ! ! return A("/", HTML("&larr; Back to the homepage")), nil ! }, ) Mittwoch, 14. November 12
  10. 17.

    Homepage := &Page{ ! OnPreRender: func(page *Page, context *Context) (err

    error) { ! ! context.Data = &PerPageData{...} // Set global page data at request context ! }, ! Title: func(context *Context, writer io.Writer) (err error) { ! ! writer.Write([]byte(context.Data.(*PerPageData).DynamicTitle)) ! ! return nil ! }, ! CSS: HomepageCSS, ! AdditionalHead: RSS("go-start.org RSS Feed", &RssFeed) ! Scripts: Renderers{ ! ! Config.Page.DefaultWriteScripts, ! ! JQuery, // jQuery/UI is built-in ! ! JQueryUI, ! !

    Models • Models are Go structs (marshaling via reflection) •

    Meta information for validation and display is added via tags • Forms and DB share the same model and validation mechanism • MongoDB is the default database Mittwoch, 14. November 12

    Additional packages • Email (message creation missing in standard mail

    package + Google Mail defaults) • Gravatar • RSS parsing • Amiando event management (used by http://startuplive.in) Mittwoch, 14. November 12
