Package http implement custom HTTP server with memory file system and simplified routing handler.


There are two problems that this library try to handle. First, optimizing serving local file system; second, complexity of routing regarding to their method, request type, and response type.

Assuming that we want to serve file system and API using ServeMux, the simplest registered handler are,

mux.HandleFunc("/", handleFileSystem)
mux.HandleFunc("/api", handleAPI)

The first problem is regarding to "http.ServeFile". Everytime the request hit "handleFileSystem" the "http.ServeFile" try to locate the file regarding to request path in system, read the content of file, parse its content type, and finally write the content-type, content-length, and body as response. This is time consuming. Of course, on modern OS, they may caching readed file descriptor in memory to minimize disk lookup, so the next call to the same file path may not touch the hard storage back again.

The second problem is regarding to handling API. We must check the request method, checking content-type, parsing query parameter or POST form in every sub-handler of API. Assume that we have an API with method POST and query parameter, the method to handle it would be like these,

handleAPILogin(res, req) {
	// (1) Check if method is POST
	// (2) Parse query parameter
	// (3) Process request
	// (4) Write response

The step number 1, 2, 4 needs to be written for every handler of our API.


The solution to the first problem is by mapping all content of files to be served into memory. This cause more memory to be consumed on server side but we minimize path lookup, and cache-miss on OS level.

Serving file system is handled by package memfs, which can be set on ServerOptions. For example, to serve all content in directory "www", we can set the ServerOptions to,

opts := &http.ServerOptions{
	Options: memfs.Options{
		Root: "www",
	Address: ":8080",
httpServer, err := NewServer(opts)

There is a limit on size of file to be mapped on memory. See the package "lib/memfs" for more information.

The solution to the second problem is by mapping the registered request per method and by path. User just need to focus on step 3, handling on how to process request, all of process on step 1, 2, and 4 will be handled by our library.

import (
	libhttp ""


epAPILogin := &libhttp.Endpoint{
	Method: libhttp.RequestMethodPost,
	Path: "/api/login",
	RequestType: libhttp.RequestTypeQuery,
	ResponseType: libhttp.ResponseTypeJSON,
	Call: handleLogin,


Upon receiving request to "POST /api/login", the library will call "HttpRequest.ParseForm()", read the content of body and pass them to "handleLogin",

func handleLogin(epr *EndpointRequest) (resBody []byte, err error) {
	// Process login input from epr.HttpRequest.Form,
	// epr.HttpRequest.PostForm, and/or epr.RequestBody.
	// Return response body and error.


The Endpoint allow binding the unique key into path using colon ":" as the first character.

For example, after registering the following Endpoint,

epBinding := &libhttp.Endpoint{
	Method: libhttp.RequestMethodGet,
	Path: "/category/:name",
	RequestType: libhttp.RequestTypeQuery,
	ResponseType: libhttp.ResponseTypeJSON,
	Call: handleCategory,

when the server receiving GET request using path "/category/book?limit=10", it will put the "book" and "10" into http.Request's Form with key is "name" and "limit"

fmt.Println("request.Form:", req.Form)
// request.Form: map[name:[book] limit:[10]]

The key binding must be unique between path and query. If query has the same key then it will be overridden by value in path. For example, using the above endpoint, request with "/category/book?name=Hitchiker" will result in Request.Form:



map[name:[book Hitchiker]]

Callback error handling

Each Endpoint can have their own error handler. If its nil, it will default to DefaultErrorHandler, which return the error as JSON with the following format,



The pseudocode below illustrate how Endpoint, Callback, and CallbackErrorHandler works when the Server receive HTTP request,

func (server *Server) (w http.ResponseWriter, req *http.Request) {
	for _, endpoint := range server.endpoints {
		if endpoint.Method.String() != req.Method {

		epr := &EndpointRequest{
			Endpoint: endpoint,
			HttpWriter: w,
			HttpRequest: req,
		epr.RequestBody, _ = ioutil.ReadAll(req.Body)

		// Check request type, and call ParseForm or
		// ParseMultipartForm if required.

		var resBody []byte
		resBody, epr.Error = endpoint.Call(epr)
		if err != nil {
		// Set content-type based on endpoint.ResponseType,
		// and write the response body,
	// If request is HTTP GET, check if Path exist as static
	// contents in Memfs.

Known Bugs and Limitations

* The server does not handle CONNECT method

* Missing test for request with content-type multipart-form

* We can not register path with ambigous route. For example, "/:x" and "/y" are ambiguous because one is dynamic path using key binding "x" and the last one is static path to "y".

See the example below on how to use it with Endpoint.Call handler.

type myData struct {
	ID string

server, err := NewServer(&ServerOptions{
	Address: "",
if err != nil {

// Lest say we have an endpoint that echoing back the request
// parameter "id" back to client inside the EndpointResponse.Data using
// myData as JSON format.
// If the parameter "id" is missing or empty it will return an HTTP
// status code with message as defined in EndpointResponse.
err = server.RegisterEndpoint(&Endpoint{
	Method:       RequestMethodGet,
	RequestType:  RequestTypeQuery,
	ResponseType: ResponseTypeJSON,
	Call: func(epr *EndpointRequest) ([]byte, error) {

			return nil, res
		if id == "0" {
			// If the EndpointResponse.Code is 0, it will
			// default to http.StatusInternalServerError
			res.Message = "id value 0 cause internal server error"
			return nil, res
		res.Code = http.StatusOK
		res.Data = &myData{
			ID: id,
		return json.Marshal(res)
if err != nil {

go func() {
	err := server.Start()
	if err != nil {

cl := NewClient("", nil, true)
params := url.Values{}

// Test call endpoint without "id" parameter.
_, resBody, err := cl.Get("/", nil, params)
if err != nil {
fmt.Printf("GET / => %s\n", resBody)

// Test call endpoint with "id" parameter set to "0", it should return
// HTTP status 500 with custom message.
params.Set("id", "0")
_, resBody, err = cl.Get("/", nil, params)
if err != nil {
fmt.Printf("GET /?id=0 => %s\n", resBody)

// Test with "id" parameter is set.
params.Set("id", "1000")
_, resBody, err = cl.Get("/", nil, params)
if err != nil {
fmt.Printf("GET /?id=1000 => %s\n", resBody)
