Getting Started


Mux Go is a code generated lightweight wrapper around the Mux REST API and reflects them accurately. This has a few consequences you should watch out for:

  1. For almost all API responses, the object you're looking for will be in the data field on the API response object, as in the example below. This is because we designed our APIs with similar concepts to the JSON:API standard. This means we'll be able to return more metadata from our API calls (such as related entities) without the need to make breaking changes to our APIs. We've decided not to hide that in this library.

  2. We don't use a lot of object orientation. For example API calls that happen on a single asset don't exist in the asset class, but are API calls in the AssetsApi which require an asset ID.


To use the Mux API, you'll need an access token and a secret. Details on obtaining these can be found here in the Mux documentation.

Its up to you to manage your token and secret. In our examples, we read them from MUX_TOKEN_ID and MUX_TOKEN_SECRET in your environment.

Example Usage

Below is a quick example of using mux-go to list the Video assets stored in your Mux account.

Be sure to also checkout the exmples directory.

package main

import (


func main() {
	// API Client Init
	client := muxgo.NewAPIClient(
			muxgo.WithBasicAuth(os.Getenv("MUX_TOKEN_ID"), os.Getenv("MUX_TOKEN_SECRET")),

	// List Assets
	fmt.Println("Listing Assets...\n")
	r, err := client.AssetsApi.ListAssets()
	if err != nil {
		fmt.Printf("err: %s \n\n", err)
	for _, asset := range r.Data {
		fmt.Printf("Asset ID: %s\n", asset.Id)
		fmt.Printf("Status: %s\n", asset.Status)
		fmt.Printf("Duration: %f\n\n", asset.Duration)

Errors & Error Handling

All API calls return an err as their final return value. Below is documented the errors you might want to check for. You can check error.Body on all errors to see the full HTTP response.


BadRequestError is returned when a you make a bad request to Mux, this likely means you've passed in an invalid parameter to the API call.


UnauthorizedError is returned when Mux cannot authenticate your request. You should check you have configured your credentials correctly.


ForbiddenError is returned you don't have permission to access that resource. You should check you have configured your credentials correctly.


NotFoundError is returned when a resource is not found. This is useful when trying to get an entity by its ID.


TooManyRequestsError is returned when you exceed the maximum number of requests allowed for a given time period. Please get in touch with if you need to talk about this limit.


ServiceError is returned when Mux returns a HTTP 5XX Status Code. If you encounter this reproducibly, please get in touch with


GenericOpenAPIError is a fallback Error which may be returned in some edge cases. This will be deprecated in a later release but remains present for API compatibility.


Be sure to check out the documentation in the docs directory.
