What is Gin?
Gin is a web framework written in Golang.
It features a Martini-like API, but with performance up to 40 times faster than Martini.
If you need performance and productivity, you will love Gin.
Radix tree based routing, small memory foot print. No reflection. Predictable API performance.
An incoming HTTP request can be handled by a chain of middleware and the final action. For example: Logger, Authorization, GZIP and finally post a message in the DB.
Gin can catch a panic occurred during a HTTP request and recover it. This way, your server will be always available. It’s also possible to report this panic to Sentry for example!
Gin can parse and validate the JSON of a request, checking, for example, the existence of required values.
Organize your routes better. Authorization required vs non required, different API versions. In addition, groups can be nested infinitely without degrading performance.
Gin provides a convenient way to collect all the errors occurred during a HTTP request. Eventually, middleware can write them to a log file, to a database and send them through the network.
Gin provides an easy to use API for JSON, XML and HTML rendering.
