Testing Handler

GET /users/:id

Handler below retrieves user by id from the database. If user is not found it returns 404 error with a message.

CreateUser

POST /users

  • Accepts JSON payload
  • On success 201 - Created
  • On error 500 - Internal Server Error

GetUser

GET /users/:email

  • On success 200 - OK
  • On error 404 - Not Found if user is not found otherwise 500 - Internal Server Error

}

Using Form Payload

f := make(url.Values)
f.Set("name", "Jon Snow")
f.Set("email", "jon@labstack.com")
req := httptest.NewRequest(echo.POST, "/", strings.NewReader(f.Encode()))
req.Header.Set(echo.HandlerContentType, echo.MIMEApplicationForm)

Setting Path Params

c.SetParamNames("id", "email")
c.SetParamValues("1", "jon@labstack.com")

Setting Query Params

q := make(url.Values)
q.Set("email", "jon@labstack.com")
req := http.NewRequest(echo.POST, "/?"+q.Encode(), nil)

Testing Middleware

TBD

For now you can look into built-in middleware test cases.
