gin-rest-api-sample

Golang REST API sample with MariaDB integration using Gin and GORM. (This project IS NOT a starter kit, it is just an example project.)

This project is a sample project that contains following features:

Project Setup

$ dep ensure
$ go get github.com/jinzhu/gorm
$ go get github.com/codegangsta/gin

GORM should be installed via

go get
since installation via
dep
is imperfect (it does not download dialects directory).

codegangsta/gin is an optional package to install if you want to make usage of live reloading feature of server (just like nodemon in Node.js environment).

MariaDB Configuration

This project uses MariaDB to store data. Install MariaDB and create a sample database and a user account.

Install MariaDB

Create Database / Account

CREATE DATABASE sample;
GRANT ALL PRIVILEGES ON sample.* to [email protected]'%' IDENTIFIED BY 'samplepass';
GRANT ALL PRIVILEGES ON sample.* to [email protected]'localhost' IDENTIFIED BY 'samplepass';

Configure Environment Variables

Open .env file and edit the values if you need to. This project uses godotenv to read and use .env file.

Database config string is formatted in go-sql-driver format.

Start Project

$ go run main.go

To explicitly compile the code before you run the server:

$ go build main.go
$ ./main

To use live-reloading in development environment,

$ ./scripts/start-dev
