gzip

The gzip middleware provides Gzip compression to responses for Flame instances.

You can read source code of this middleware on GitHubopen in new window and API documentation on pkg.go.devopen in new window.

Installation

The minimum requirement of Go is 1.16.

go get github.com/flamego/gzip

Usage examples

You should register the gzip.Gzipopen in new window before all other middleware or handlers that would write response to clients, and it works out-of-the-box with the default settings:

package main

import (
	"github.com/flamego/flamego"
	"github.com/flamego/gzip"
)

func main() {
	f := flamego.Classic()
	f.Use(gzip.Gzip())
	f.Get("/", func() string {
		return "Hello, Gzip!"
	})
	f.Run()
}

The gzip.Optionsopen in new window can be used to further customize the behavior of the middleware:

package main

import (
	"github.com/flamego/flamego"
	"github.com/flamego/gzip"
)

func main() {
	f := flamego.Classic()
	f.Use(gzip.Gzip(
		gzip.Options{
			CompressionLevel: 9, // Best compression
		},
	))
	f.Get("/", func() string {
		return "Hello, Gzip!"
	})
	f.Run()
}
