// go get{version}
go get


package main

import ( "net/http" "" "" )

func main() { // Echo instance e := echo.New()

// Middleware e.Use(middleware.Logger()) e.Use(middleware.Recover())

// Routes e.GET("/", hello)

// Start server e.Logger.Fatal(e.Start(":1323")) }

// Handler func hello(c echo.Context) error { return c.String(http.StatusOK, "Hello, World!") }
