Package simplehttp provides an http.Handler that makes it easy to serve Vugu applications. Useful for development and production.

    The idea is that the common behaviors needed to serve a Vugu site are readily available in one place. If you require more functionality than simplehttp provides, nearly everything it does is available in the package and you can construct what you need from its parts. That said, simplehttp should make it easy to start:

    // dev flag enables most common development features
    // including rebuild your .wasm upon page reload
    dev := true
    h := simplehttp.New(dir, dev)

    After creation, some flags are available for tuning, e.g.:

    h.EnableGenerate = true // upon page reload run "go generate ."
    h.DisableBuildCache = true // do not try to cache build results during development, just rebuild every time
    h.ParserGoPkgOpts.SkipRegisterComponentTypes = true // do not generate component registration init() stuff

    Since it's just a regular http.Handler, starting a webserver is as simple as:

    log.Fatal(http.ListenAndServe("", h))

    var DefaultIsPageFunc = func(r *http.Request) bool {
    	return path.Ext(path.Clean("/"+r.URL.Path)) == ""

      DefaultIsPageFunc will return true for any request to a path with no file extension.

      var DefaultPageTemplateSource = `` /* 1416-byte string literal not displayed */

        DefaultPageTemplateSource a useful default HTML template for serving pages.

        var DefaultStaticData = make(map[string]interface{}, 4)

          DefaultStaticData is a map of static things added to the return value of DefaultTemplateDataFunc. Provides a quick and dirty way to do things like add CSS files to every page.

          View Source
          var DefaultTemplateDataFunc = func(r *http.Request) interface{} {
          	ret := map[string]interface{}{
          		"Request": r,
          	for k, v := range DefaultStaticData {
          		ret[k] = v
          	return ret

            DefaultTemplateDataFunc is the default behavior for making template data. It returns a map with "Request" set to r and all elements of DefaultStaticData added to it.


            func FilteredFileServer

            func FilteredFileServer(pattern *regexp.Regexp, fs http.FileSystem) http.Handler

              FilteredFileServer is similar to the standard librarie's http.FileServer but the handler it returns will refuse to serve any files which don't match the specified regexp pattern after running through path.Clean(). The idea is to make it easy to serve only specific kinds of static files from a directory. If pattern does not match a 404 will be returned. Be sure to include a trailing "$" if you are checking for file extensions, so it only matches the end of the path, e.g. "[.](css|js)$"


              type PageHandler

              type PageHandler struct {
              	Template         *template.Template
              	TemplateDataFunc func(r *http.Request) interface{}

                PageHandler executes a Go template and responsds with the page.

                func (*PageHandler) ServeHTTP

                func (h *PageHandler) ServeHTTP(w http.ResponseWriter, r *http.Request)

                  ServeHTTP implements http.Handler

                  type SimpleHandler

                  type SimpleHandler struct {
                  	Dir string // project directory
                  	EnableBuildAndServe          bool                 // enables the build-and-serve sequence for your wasm binary - useful for dev, should be off in production
                  	EnableGenerate               bool                 // if true calls `go generate` (requires EnableBuildAndServe)
                  	ParserGoPkgOpts              *gen.ParserGoPkgOpts // if set enables running ParserGoPkg with these options (requires EnableBuildAndServe)
                  	DisableBuildCache            bool                 // if true then rebuild every time instead of trying to cache (requires EnableBuildAndServe)
                  	DisableTimestampPreservation bool                 // if true don't try to keep timestamps the same for files that are byte for byte identical (requires EnableBuildAndServe)
                  	MainWasmPath                 string               // path to serve main wasm file from, in dev mod defaults to "/main.wasm" (requires EnableBuildAndServe)
                  	WasmExecJsPath               string               // path to serve wasm_exec.js from after finding in the local Go installation, in dev mode defaults to "/wasm_exec.js"
                  	IsPage      func(r *http.Request) bool // func that returns true if PageHandler should serve the request
                  	PageHandler http.Handler               // returns the HTML page
                  	StaticHandler http.Handler // returns static assets from Dir with appropriate filtering or appropriate error
                  	// contains filtered or unexported fields

                    SimpleHandler provides common web serving functionality useful for building Vugu sites.

                    func New

                    func New(dir string, dev bool) *SimpleHandler

                      New returns an SimpleHandler ready to serve using the specified directory. The dev flag indicates if development functionality is enabled. Settings on SimpleHandler may be tuned more specifically after creation, this function just returns sensible defaults for development or production according to if dev is true or false.

                      func (*SimpleHandler) ServeHTTP

                      func (h *SimpleHandler) ServeHTTP(w http.ResponseWriter, r *http.Request)

                        ServeHTTP implements http.Handler.
