gimlet -- HTTP/JSON API Toolkit
- Allow developers to implement HTTP/JSON APIs by writing http.HandlerFunc methods and passing encoding/json marshallable types to simple response-writing methods.
- Make it easy to define a set of routes with a version prefix, and manage the version prefix at the routing layer rather than in handlers.
- Reuse common components as necessary, and avoid recreating existing tools or making a large inflexible tool.
In short I was writing a JSON/HTTP API, and wanted the above properties and found that I had written a little library that didn't really have anything to do with the app I was writing so I'm spinning it out both because I want to use this in my next project and I hope you may find it useful.
