    Golang HTTP Handler With Gzip

    Golang has many kinds of compression technique within its standard library which you can use to compress our data. A compression is needed to reduce the size of the data. Even in a web server, a compression technique would be beneficial to increase the communication speed between client and server. Gzip is one of the compression techniques supported by both Golang and web. This article will cover the creation of golang HTTP handler that (de)compress gzip request/response and how to create an HTTP request that send/receive the gzip-compressed body payload. All the code covered in this article you can find it in this repository.

    Go middleware to gzip HTTP responses

    Implementation of the gzip compression on Golang HTTP handler and requests might be adding a little complexity on your code, but I believe modern browser / API gateway these days can implement this easily without changing your code. Also this middleware created by NY Times can help you to minimize the effort on implementing this compression. You can find all the code used on in this article here.
