These are lessons I've learned from developing a web app using the Go programming language.

One of the functions I've used often when developing Django apps is the STATIC_PATH variable. I was able to implement something similar in my Go web app.

import (

var router *mux.Router

func init() {
  router = mux.NewRouter()
  router.HandleFunc("/static/{path:.*}", func(w http.ResponseWriter, r *http.Request) {
    http.ServeFile(w, r, r.URL.Path[1:])

The above routing code defines a "static" named URL. The named URL parses the request URL to find out what resource is being requested and serves the file from the filesystem.
