  • How do you validate your structures?

    I'm looking for a data validator and I don't like this approach where validation details are a part of tags: `validation:magic,42`. I've written my own validator but it's more like an example rather than complete implementation and it's not my particular task right now and I will be really happy to find something like that: ``go type User struct { Name stringjson:"name" Email stringjson:"email" Message stringjson:"message"` }
