lets say i have the following json

    name: "John",
    birth_date: "1996-10-07"

and i want to decode it into the following structure

type Person struct {
    Name string `json:"name"`
    BirthDate time.Time `json:"birth_date"`

like this

person := Person{}

decoder := json.NewDecoder(req.Body);

if err := decoder.Decode(&person); err != nil {

which gives me the error parsing time ""1996-10-07"" as ""2006-01-02T15:04:05Z07:00"": cannot parse """ as "T"

if i were to parse it manually i would do it like this

t, err := time.Parse("2006-01-02", "1996-10-07")

but when the time value is from a json string how do i get the decoder to parse it in the above format?

    That's a case when you need to implement custom marshal und unmarshal functions.

    UnmarshalJSON(b []byte) error { ... }
    MarshalJSON() ([]byte, error) { ... }

    By following the example in the Golang documentation of json package you get something like:

    // first create a type alias
    type JsonBirthDate time.Time
    // Add that to your struct
    type Person struct {
        Name string `json:"name"`
        BirthDate JsonBirthDate `json:"birth_date"`
    // imeplement Marshaler und Unmarshalere interface
    func (j *JsonBirthDate) UnmarshalJSON(b []byte) error {
        s := strings.Trim(string(b), "\"")
        t, err := time.Parse("2006-01-02", s)
        if err != nil {
            return err
        *j = JsonBirthDate(t)
        return nil
    func (j JsonBirthDate) MarshalJSON() ([]byte, error) {
        return json.Marshal(j)
    // Maybe a Format function for printing your date
    func (j JsonBirthDate) Format(s string) string {
        t := time.Time(j)
        return t.Format(s)
