When registering handlers in Go (language) is there any way to specify wildcards in the pattern?

For example:

http.HandleFunc("/groups/*/people", peopleInGroupHandler)

Where the * could be any valid URL string. Or is the only solution to match /groups and figure the rest out from within the handler (peopleInGroupHandler) func?

在Go(语言)中注册处理程序时,是否可以在模式中指定通配符? \ n


  http.HandleFunc(“ / groups / * / people”,peopleInGroupHandler)

其中 * 可以是任何有效的URL字符串。 还是唯一匹配 / groups 并从处理程序( peopleInGroupHandler )函数中找出其余内容的解决方案?

    The patterns for http.Handler and http.HandleFunc aren't regular expressions or globs. There isn't a way to specify wildcards. They're documented here.

    That said, it's not too hard to create your own handler that can use regular expressions or any other kind of pattern you want. Here's one that uses regular expressions (compiled, but not tested):

    type route struct {
        pattern *regexp.Regexp
        handler http.Handler
    type RegexpHandler struct {
        routes []*route
    func (h *RegexpHandler) Handler(pattern *regexp.Regexp, handler http.Handler) {
        h.routes = append(h.routes, &route{pattern, handler})
    func (h *RegexpHandler) HandleFunc(pattern *regexp.Regexp, handler func(http.ResponseWriter, *http.Request)) {
        h.routes = append(h.routes, &route{pattern, http.HandlerFunc(handler)})
    func (h *RegexpHandler) ServeHTTP(w http.ResponseWriter, r *http.Request) {
        for _, route := range h.routes {
            if route.pattern.MatchString(r.URL.Path) {
                route.handler.ServeHTTP(w, r)
        // no pattern matched; send 404 response
        http.NotFound(w, r)

    Since 2011, you can now (2014+) find other solutions.
    For instance, the mux package of the Gorilla Web toolkit provides all kind of routing options:

    • Pattern matching on request paths, with optional regular expressions.
    • Matching on URL host and scheme, request method, header and query values.
    • Matching based on custom functions.
    • Use of sub-routers for easy nested routing.

    It can be easily integrated to any BYOR (Bring your own Router) http library, like negroni.

    Here is an example from the article "Gorilla vs Pat vs Routes: A Mux Showdown":

    package main
    import (
    func main() {
      rtr := mux.NewRouter()
      rtr.HandleFunc("/user/{name:[a-z]+}/profile", profile).Methods("GET")
      http.Handle("/", rtr)
      http.ListenAndServe(":3000", nil)
    func profile(w http.ResponseWriter, r *http.Request) {
      params := mux.Vars(r)
      name := params["name"]
      w.Write([]byte("Hello " + name))

    Sometimes better not to just use yet another "magic" package, but understand what's going on under the hood

    In this instance, the "magic" is defined in "gorilla/mux/regexp.go", and tested here.
    The idea is to extract named variables, assemble a regexp to be matched, create a "reverse" template to build URLs and compile regexps to validate variable values used in URL building.

    I just wanted to add julienschmidt/httprouter, which just behaves like net/http but with an additional parameter for url-values and support for request methods:


    package main
    import (
    func Index(w http.ResponseWriter, r *http.Request, _ httprouter.Params) {
        fmt.Fprint(w, "Welcome!
    func Hello(w http.ResponseWriter, r *http.Request, ps httprouter.Params) {
        fmt.Fprintf(w, "hello, %s!
    ", ps.ByName("name"))
    func main() {
        router := httprouter.New()
        router.GET("/", Index)
        router.GET("/hello/:name", Hello)
        log.Fatal(http.ListenAndServe(":8080", router))

    It also seems to be slightly more popular than gorilla/mux (according to GitHub) and it also claims to need less memory.

    You could check how violetear handles dynamic + catchall (wildcard) patterns, this is just for complement for example:

    uuid := `[0-9a-fA-F]{8}-[0-9a-fA-F]{4}-[0-9a-fA-F]{4}-[0-9a-fA-F]{4}-[0-9a-fA-F]{12}`
    router.HandleFunc("/test/:uuid/:uuid", handleUUID, "GET,HEAD")

    In this case, the request may have 2 different UUIDS

    For a dynamic/wildcard this could apply:

                                |     |      |
                                 static      |

    A regex may be used to match the IP:

    router.AddRegex(":ip", `^(?:[0-9]{1,3}\.){3}[0-9]{1,3}$`)
    router.HandleFunc("/command/ping/:ip", ipHandler, "GET")

    Or simply just a catch all allowing GET and HEAD methods only:

    router.HandleFunc("/command/ping/*", anyHandler, "GET, HEAD")

    Here's an example of how to use the code example from @evanshaw

    func handleDigits(res http.ResponseWriter, req *http.Request) {
        res.Write([]byte("Digits in the URL
    func handleStrings(res http.ResponseWriter, req *http.Request) {
        res.Write([]byte("Strings in the URL
    func main() {
        handler := &RegexpHandler{}
        reg1, _ := regexp.Compile("/foo-\\d+")
        handler.HandleFunc(reg1, handleDigits)
        reg2, _ := regexp.Compile("/foo-\\w+")
        handler.HandleFunc(reg2, handleStrings)
        http.ListenAndServe(":3000", handler)
