Golang JSON omitempty带有time.Time字段

Trying to json Marshal a struct that contains 2 time fields. But I only want the field to come through if it has a time value. So I'm using json:",omitempty" but it's not working.

What can I set the Date value to so json.Marshal will treat it like an empty (zero) value and not include it in the json string?

Playground: http://play.golang.org/p/QJwh7yBJlo

Actual Outcome:


Desired Outcome:



package main

import (

type MyStruct struct {
    Timestamp time.Time `json:",omitempty"`
    Date      time.Time `json:",omitempty"`
    Field     string    `json:",omitempty"`

func main() {
    ms := MyStruct{
        Timestamp: time.Date(2015, 9, 18, 0, 0, 0, 0, time.UTC),
        Field:     "",

    bb, err := json.Marshal(ms)
    if err != nil {

试图对包含2个时间字段的结构进行JSON编组。 但我只希望该字段具有时间值才能通过。 所以我正在使用 json:“,omitempty” ,但是它不起作用。

我该如何将Date值设置为json.Marshal会像对待它一样 一个空(零)值,并且不包含在json字符串中?

实际结果: < blockquote>

{“ Timestamp”:“ 2015-09-18T00:00:00Z”,“ Date”:“ 0001-01-01T00:00:00Z”}


{“时间戳”:“ 2015-09- 18T00:00:00Z“}


”  encoding / json“ 
” fmt“ 
” time“ 
type MyStruct struct {
日期时间。时间`json:”,omitempty  “`
func main(){
 ms:= MyStruct {
时间戳:time.Date(2015,9,18,0,0,  0,0,time.UTC),
 Fie  ld:“”,
 bb,err:= json.Marshal(ms)
 if err!= nil {
 fmt.Println(string(bb)  )

    The omitempty tag option does not work with time.Time as it is a struct. There is a "zero" value for structs, but that is a struct value where all fields have their zero values. This is a "valid" value, so it is not treated as "empty".

    But by simply changing it to a pointer: *time.Time, it will work (nil pointers are treated as "empty" for json marshaling/unmarshaling). So no need to write custom Marshaler in this case:

    type MyStruct struct {
        Timestamp *time.Time `json:",omitempty"`
        Date      *time.Time `json:",omitempty"`
        Field     string     `json:",omitempty"`

    Using it:

    ts := time.Date(2015, 9, 18, 0, 0, 0, 0, time.UTC)
    ms := MyStruct{
        Timestamp: &ts,
        Field:     "",

    Output (as desired):


    Try it on the Go Playground.

    If you can't or don't want to change it to a pointer, you can still achieve what you want by implementing a custom Marshaler and Unmarshaler. If you do so, you can use the Time.IsZero() method to decide if a time.Time value is the zero value.

    you may define you self Time type for custom marshal format, and use it everywhere instead time.Time


    package main
    import "fmt"
    import "time"
    import "encoding/json"
    type MyTime struct{
    func (t MyTime) MarshalJSON() ([]byte, error) {
            return []byte(t.Format("\"2006-01-02T15:04:05Z\"")), nil
       // UnmarshalJSON implements the json.Unmarshaler interface.
        // The time is expected to be a quoted string in RFC 3339 format.
    func (t *MyTime) UnmarshalJSON(data []byte) (err error) {
            // Fractional seconds are handled implicitly by Parse.
            tt, err := time.Parse("\"2006-01-02T15:04:05Z\"", string(data))
            *t = MyTime{&tt}
    func main() {
        t := time.Now()
        d, err := json.Marshal(MyTime{&t})
        fmt.Println(string(d), err)
        var mt MyTime
        json.Unmarshal(d, &mt)
