This four part series explores Go's template package, which can be used to render HTML or text. Topics covered include contextual encoding, actions, using functions in templates, and how to build a proper view layer for a web application.
Learn how to create a reusable view layer to simplify HTML rendering. This includes creating a shared layout, defining default templates that can be overridden, and including the same templates across various pages without putting all of the code into a single file.
Chances are a lot of developers who pick up Go will be familiar with the MVC model. Models, views, and controllers are great for abstracting away code, but sadly there aren’t many examples of how to use them in Go. In this post I am going to go over how to get started with a basic controller and view in Go, and cover a really simple web application that uses them.
