Package handlers is a collection of handlers (aka "HTTP middleware") for use with Go's net/http package (or any framework supporting http.Handler), including:

Other handlers are documented on the Gorilla website.


A simple example using handlers.LoggingHandler and handlers.CompressHandler:

import (

func main() {
    r := http.NewServeMux()

    // Only log requests to our admin dashboard to stdout
    r.Handle("/admin", handlers.LoggingHandler(os.Stdout, http.HandlerFunc(ShowAdminDashboard)))
    r.HandleFunc("/", ShowIndex)

    // Wrap our server with our gzip handler to gzip compress all responses.
    http.ListenAndServe(":8000", handlers.CompressHandler(r))
