These tests are just for fun, all these routers are great and efficient. Bone isn't the fastest router for every job.


package main



func main () {
  mux := bone.New()

  mux.RegisterValidatorFunc("isNum", func(s string) bool {
    if _, err := strconv.Atoi(s); err == nil {
      return true
    return false

  // mux.Get, Post, etc ... takes http.Handler
  // validator for route parameter
  mux.Get("/home/:id|isNum", http.HandlerFunc(HomeHandler))
  // multiple parameter
  mux.Get("/profil/:id/:var", http.HandlerFunc(ProfilHandler))
  mux.Post("/data", http.HandlerFunc(DataHandler))

  // Support REGEX Route params
  mux.Get("/index/#id^[0-9]$", http.HandlerFunc(IndexHandler))

  // Handle take http.Handler
  mux.Handle("/", http.HandlerFunc(RootHandler))

  // GetFunc, PostFunc etc ... takes http.HandlerFunc
  mux.GetFunc("/test", Handler)

  http.ListenAndServe(":8080", mux)

func Handler(rw http.ResponseWriter, req *http.Request) {
  // Get the value of the "id" parameters.
  val := bone.GetValue(req, "id")
