Unmarshaling Activity Streams 2.0 JSON objects into Go objects:

// Unmarshal from AS 2.0 JSON
var exobj astreams.Collection
err := json.Unmarshal([]byte(object), &exobj)
if err != nil {
	log.Println(err)
}

↑ An example of unmarshaling into an astreams.Collection object.

Marshaling Go objects into Activity Streams 2.0 JSON objects:

// Marshal to AS 2.0 JSON
jsB, err := json.Marshal(exobj)
if err != nil {
	log.Println(err)
}

↑ Marshaling the same astreams.Collection back into the original ActivityStreams 2.0 JSON is equally as straightforward.
